When 20-year-old Emma Brookstone arrives in the town of Bannack, Montana, she seeks out the local marshal, intending to enlist his help in uncovering the truth regarding her father's murder two years earlier. Upon meeting the marshal, however, she is shocked and dismayed to discover that he is none other than the man who gunned her father down that fateful night.
Though Clive Brookstone was an evil man who needed killing, the knowledge that he left a young woman orphaned tore at Nathan Haskin's conscience from the moment he pulled the trigger, and he has secretly provided for Emma's needs since that day. Certain that hearing about her father's legacy of lawless violence would break her heart, he concealed it from her, but now that she has returned to Bannack her persistence eventually prompts him to tell her the full story.
To make matters more complicated, Nathan finds his desire to protect Emma quickly growing into a powerful need to tame and possess her, and when her foolish behavior puts her safety at risk he doesn't hesitate to take her in hand and spank her soundly. His stern chastisement leaves her furious yet helplessly aroused, and it isn't long before he claims her hard and thoroughly.
In her heart, Emma knows what Nathan tells her is true - that her father's death was just - but writhing in ecstasy as she is utterly dominated by the man who killed him fills her with shame nonetheless, and she does her best to deny her lust for the handsome marshal. Will the day ever come when she can put aside the past and surrender herself fully to the man she once hated?
Publisher's Note: Emma's Surrender includes sexual scenes and spankings. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

Historical western romance is one of my favorite genres, and Amelia Smarts brings it every time. This DD romance brings so many different emotions to us. Nathan, the hero, forbidden to love is so hot, and alpha male that you cannot help but fall in love with him. While rough and domineering, you cannot help but just melt for. him Nothing but godd intentions and keeping his woman and the people in town safe. Emma, the sassy daughter of the most hated man in town, though sheltered throughout her life proved her bravery and spunk while still showing her submissive side(though she was a little reluctant to admit it). The chemistry between these two was apparent from the start, and the spankings....oh the spankings....These two, between the forbidden feelings that Emma warred with, the kidnapping, the danger of being who she was, the passion the two ignited, I could not get enough of the it all!
Jack Barclay narrated this book with a full performance of each emotion. His baritone voice is perfect for cowboys and his inflection of emotion brought the story to life.
It took a while for me to get into the story narrated by Jack Barclay. I had trouble seeing the story. But once I got past the first few chapters, it was excellent!
I love books especially romances and mysteries. I enjoy sharing a good story. I have been receiving and reviewing ARCs for years.
The author did an excellent job of taking me back to another time and place. I enjoyed the romance but this story was so much more. Along with being a lesson in romantic love, it was a lesson in how love can both blind you to the truth and free you from the hurts and pain of the past to build a new life.
The intensity of this amazing story is really brought to life by narrator, Jack Barclay. Combine Ms. Smarts brilliant storytelling with a great narrator, you get magic. The story has a little bit of everything like drama, love, romance, spankings, and hot sexy moments. Don’t miss adding this to your audible library.
