Okay, I admit it. I really like 'spanking' stories. It's kind of my guilty pleasure. "Christmas Tales from the Old West" is a historical anthology that combines sweet and sexy romance with good old fashioned spankings. The stories are short but thoroughly enjoyable. My favorite is "Christmas Carol" by Joannie Kay. The heroine is anything but a doormat. She's a strong, independent woman who became a doctor long before it was accepted but our hero doesn't hesitate to warm her bottom when she puts herself in harm's way. All of the stories have feisty women as the main characters. The alpha males who love them really do have a hard time reining them in for their own sakes. Filled with joy and sadness of the holidays, these stories are a great way to explore the world of spanking as opposed to the BDSM genre. They may cross over but they're not the same. I love them both but there is a very different feel between the two. This is a delightful anthology and the perfect way to explore some new authors.
