|Rocky Mountain Christmas|
Aah, Christmas is coming soon, and I have a whole box of favorite Christmas books. I pull it out when we are hunting for the boxes of ornaments and decorations. There are a few books from my childhood and then many more from when our boys were young. They all hold lovely memories. Many of them I brought to school when I was still teaching to share with my students. One special book of ours had no words. It was illustrated in a comic book format and was wonderful before my kids could read. They would
|Love this Book!|
But if you are in the mood for a more grown-up Christmas story, with a little bit of spanking action for good measure, then look no further than our own Sunny. Her 2 story edition titled Rocky Mountain Christmas just came out a few weeks ago, and, of course, it is on Ella's bookshelf. I chose to write about the 2nd in this pair of stories. Christmas and Cowboys! What's not to love?
Title: Rocky Mountain Christmas
Author: Leigh Smith
Story 1 - The Christmas Cowboy
Story 2 - Christmas in Montana
Number of Pages: 87
Setting: Winter on a Montana ranch
Themes: Small Town Christmas, Being True to Yourself, Mending Family Fences
- Mary Jo Blanton - independent and free-thinking daughter of an influential, society-minded woman.
- Wes Parker - rancher and owner of Piney Woods Camp in the Montana high country.
- Gran - Mary Jo's loving and practical grandmother.
- Eleanor Blanton - Mary Jo's bossy, domineering mother.
- Franklin Tyler Howard - Mary Jo's fiance - wealthy son of a business colleague.
This story actually starts in California, far from the high country of Montana. Mary Jo is an independent young woman who is determined that her mother will not run her life or dictate her future. Eleanor has arranged a "suitable" marriage for her daughter to Franklin Howard. Mary Jo is not in love with him and calls the
upcoming union "more of a merger than a marriage." She decides to derail this plan by leaving home right before Christmas and enlists the help of her dear grandmother. At Gran's house, a friend puts Mary Jo in contact with her nephew, Wes Parker, owner and rancher of the Piney Woods Camp in Barlow, Montana. Mary Jo does make calls to her mother and to Franklin so they will know her decision and not worry about her safety.
When Mary Jo arrives in Montana, just before Christmas, she meets Wes Parker and is reminded of the Paul Bunyan of legend. Piney Woods Camp has a huge U-shaped lodge as well as rental cabins. She knows she is out in the wilderness when she hears elk bugling next morning. Elks bugle when searching for a mate, and I like how this foretells the attraction that Mary Jo and Wes develop for each other. She says, "it was as if he had a magnet - and kept drawing me in!"
Wes asks her if she wants to accompany him up the mountain on horseback. Mary Jo soon discovers that not listening will earn her a very uncomfortable spanking. This whole section of the story with these 2 people getting to know each other reminds me of a kind of dance between them. Both are attracted but just circling.
When they both finally give into this attraction, it is a charged occasion and very passionate. Mary Jo finds that spanking can be sensual, too. I love when our hero tells her what to do during sex, but maybe that is just my kink.
As Christmas approaches in Barlow, Mary Jo is happy and looking forward to celebrating it with a small town flavor. She learns more about Wes and helps him to truly enjoy this Christmas and put
things right with his family. There is even a Christmas spanking to bring them closer. I really liked that this story wasn't just a trite holiday tale with chestnuts roasting on an open fire. It had some substance on its own. The Epilogue at the end of this story is like an extra little Christmas present from Sunny.
