Publisher's Summary

When Janelle Prescott is thrown from her car as it careens off a slippery road, she expects to wake up in a hospital. Instead, to her utter disbelief, she wakes up in a jail cell that looks like something from an old Western movie set. It is there, hurt and alone, with no idea what happened or how she will get back home, that Janelle first meets Aaron Jackson. As she regains her wits, however, Janelle realizes something is terribly amiss, and her worst fears are confirmed when she learns Aaron is the marshal of Cheyenne County, Wyoming...and the year is 1878.  

When an injured, apparently addle-headed woman falls into his lap, Aaron takes it upon himself to keep her safe and nurse her back to health. Truth be told, he is instantly attracted to her despite her sharp tongue and her bizarre story - a story he is quickly forced by the evidence to accept as genuine. After Aaron takes her under his wing and into his family’s home, the two clash frequently, but Aaron is more than ready to lay down the law...even if that means a good, hard bare-bottom spanking for this feisty brat from another era.  

Having little choice, Janelle must learn how to live as a woman in 1878, including submitting to the firm-handed marshal who, in spite of everything, seems to have laid claim to her heart.  

Publisher’s note: Marshal’s Law is an erotic romance novel that contains graphic sexual scenes and spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this audiobook.

Romance through Time Travel.

In a story that has too much violence an interesting dynamic is created through the use of traveling through time.

In Romance Novel tradition a relationship develops between two unlikely people mixed with a complex web of behavioral
and cultural differences.

The key to putting this story together is a Narrator with the right voice and attitude to hold the listeners interest.

Nice and Sexy!

I love the time travel aspect of this book. This story tells of a modern day woman (2013) who wakes up in a jail cell in Laramie, WY (1878) after a car accident. This story engages all of your emotions. I found myself laughing, tearing up and becoming hot and bothered during the sex scenes. The plot and characters have a continuous flow. The narration was good and kept you entertained. The author did a great job with this story! This was my first book by this author and I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series.

Time Travel and a sexy cowboy

Wow! This book had my emotions in a whirlwind. I really wasn't sure what I would be getting into with the whole domestic discipline theme, but I did try to go into it with an open mind. My feelings about Aaron and his discipline were quite mixed. In truth, it almost felt like two different people at times. On the one hand, he's all alpha male with his protective streak and big, sexy cowboy persona. He's so open-minded about Janelle, where she's from, and her education, and he's unusually insightful at times. On the other hand, when he feels that Janelle needs to learn to "behave," he's overbearing and what I would consider abusive. I realize that domestic discipline is a real thing that some couples enjoy, but I can't say that it did anything for me. So, with that in mind, I put my focus on the rest of the story. I will say that when Janelle and Aaron were in sync, the chemistry was off the charts with lots of steamy goodness.

As far as Janelle's time travel, I don't read much with that theme either because they so often get bogged down in the explanations, so I wasn't at all bothered by the lack of that here. We never get the reason for Janelle's leap into the past, so if you're looking for a magical, mystical, or scientific plot, you won't find that here.

The story here, at least for me, was about Janelle and her assimilation into a time without the modern day comforts. Her frustration with learning everything expected of a woman in 1878 and finding not only love, but a whole family willing to accept her with open arms. On that, the author certainly did a wonderful job of conveying her confusion, her longing, and finally her contentment. We also get a bit of wit and humor as she and Aaron pick up the phrasings and their different meanings from one time period to the next. I also loved the way things were wrapped up in the epilogue with Janelle's parents in modern day.

Since I did listen to the audio version of Marshal's Law, I have to mention our narrator, Gideon Welles. If I were going to pick a voice for this one, he would be it. That drawl and bit of gruff in his voice was absolutely perfect. In fact, I'm pretty sure his wonderful narration played a big part in my falling a bit for Aaron in spite of my feelings for his discipline.

Sexy Marshal

I enjoyed this audiobook except for a few pet peeves. The Marshal's nickname for Janelle is "Sweet Pea". Not sure why but it grates on me, he uses it over and over and over again. If you enjoy time travel and romance, I;d say go for it. You won't be dissappointed.
The writing had a nice flow and was easy to listen to. I would recommend this book.

Janelle and Aaron embark on a wild adventure, but will it come crashing down?

Marshal’s Law is the first book in the Jackson Brothers series. Janelle is driving home from work when her car veers off of the road. Quickly after opening her eyes again, she realizes that her whole life has changed! Not only did she wake up in a jail cell, but the marshal thinks she’s crazy, and it’s the late 1800’s. Janelle and Aaron embark on a wild adventure of getting to know each other, trust, life, marriage, and even love, but will it all come crashing down? Can Janelle get back home again? What happens when enemies of Aaron try to go after Janelle?

This book gripped my attention and heart from the very beginning! I was so thankful I was on a long car ride and could listen to almost the entire book in one sitting because once I started, I did not want to finish! Janelle and Aaron were amazing characters! I loved them separately, I loved them together, and I loved their whole adventure! I can’t even imagine what Janelle had to go through, the changes she needed to come to terms with, and just how strong and resourceful she stayed. Aaron was stern but caring, wanted the best for Janelle, but needed to keep her safe. The plot line of this story was emotional at times, had me giggle at others, and just kept me hooked with everything that happens to the both of them. And Mr. Welles was phenomenal at making the characters come to life for me, especially Aaron! That draw in his voice, the slightly rough edge, it all just completely embodied Aaron! I was thrilled that listening to this book was my first experience with this book and absolutely enjoyed every minute of it! I highly recommend giving this book a chance!

Entertaining Premise

A slight twist on time travel with nice humor. I still find the heroine comes across a more spoiled than independent until half way through. The "villians" should be in the stupid criminals hall of fame. Prefer the tales of the other two Jackson brothers (better protagonists and villains). Hope they come out soon. Wish there had been a follow up showing the genealogy. If this is your first Maddie Taylor novel, don't give up.
Having read all of Maddie Taylor's e-books, I wish her Club Decadence series would come out on audible.
Narrator's has good rhythm, cadence and emotion but his female characters are a bit too bass.

Had trouble listening through the end

Janelle Prescott magically enters through a time worm hole from "present day" and ends up in 1878 Wyoming. She is placed under the care of the territories Marshal, Aaron Jackson. Different twists and turns face the young couple but of course true love wins out. I liked how the author attempted to bring both of their experiences into the forefront, rather than focus on just Janelle.
Unfortunately, that was not enough to render it a titillating read. Janelle, begins as a strong independent woman, then once she is put under the Marshals care, her backbone no longer exists. She turns into a mewling child, oftentimes throwing tantrums. These are then followed up with "punishments" from Aaron, which borders on masochism not on marital discipline.
It was a quick easy listen and but I couldn't ignore the tantrums, the "I am the man, I know what is best" and the females inability to stand up for herself.

Wonderful

The first book in a three part series featuring the three Jackson brothers.

I enjoyed the book. It is a time travel book, but I liked how maddie taylor kept the whole time travel vague. Thinking about the how's and why’s will just give you a headache.

Janelle was a very likeable character and i enjoyed seeing her adapt to this new world and gaining a new family and new career.

aaron was stern, but also very open minded and very much in love with Janelle. he was a good but very stubborn guy. And i loved the secondary characters in the book.

This book has a lot of action, it made me laugh a lot and it was also very steamy.

Also listen to the audio book and it had a great narrator. he did a wonderful job.

Marshal’s Law by Mattie Taylor

I liked this book very much as the story line was well developed. It involved time travel, the old West and likable characters. The narrated by Gideon Welles who did different voices for the characters, male and female and was so well done. I highly recommend this book, ebook or audible.

a fantastic story to listen to

I totally enjoyed this. I'm not really a fan of audio books but I've enjoyed this one. I suppose the narrator's voice helped to make it exciting or more intetesting to me. Aaron and Janelle's story is exciting in that she's a modern eomen who travelled back in time and struggled to come to terms with the rules of that era. Aaron the marshall no only took her in but gave her the love of the family she lost.
