Chula Stone When a Cowboy Asks: A Rancher's Bride, Book Two
Read Sample Chapter


Merriview, Texas isn’t the place many men would come to find a wife, but Shep knows that he can get some good advice from his old friends there, so he agrees to make a delivery that’s sure to raise some eyebrows. The first girl he meets has him thinking of staying much longer than he had planned and the Sloan brothers and their wives are elated to hear it. Though Shep falls for the lovely Treli, he almost gives up on winning her when fate, and the feisty Pinkie Sloan step in. 

What’s a cowboy’s solution when his questions go unanswered and his orders get disobeyed? The only choice to be made is whether to use a paddle or a wooden spoon. What better way to try to get a handle on the madcap mayhem that ensues than a good old-fashioned trip over his knee? Whenever the Sloans get involved, three things are for sure: laughter, love, and long spankings.  

This book can stand alone, but readers who enjoyed A Rancher’s Bride: Skittle-pip will be glad to see old friends from Bumchuck up to their old antics.

Publishers note: This book contains scenes depicting adult women being spanked. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

A sweet old-fashioned western

I am a fan of Chula Stone, particularly her sci-fi books. I think this book is technically well-written, with a great plot and good word flow.The storyline was fantastic, and many scenes were creative, unexpected, and laugh-out-loud funny. I liked the book, but I didn't love it. For me, the emotional interaction between the two main characters was a little too simplistic, lacking depth. Otherwise, it is a great story, and I will definitely continue to read Ms. Stone's new books as they are released. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

This is book two of A Rancher’s Bride series and will read as a standalone. It is 1866, fourteen years since we met the Sloan brothers, Vince and Slingo, and their adventure with the circus and meeting their wives, Pinkie and Drina. They each have a houseful of children; the Frogleg ranch is doing well, the ladies each have their own business in town, and their cousin, Treli Pann, has come to Merriview, Texas to recovery from a broken leg, and has stayed on, working at the café. The story has a large cast of characters, some from the first book, and we meet many new ones in this story.

Pinkie Sloan is still a handful, and her new venture includes Bart Shepard bringing new animals for her, alpacas and more peacocks. Bart is out of the Army and goes by the name Shep; he is hoping to plant some roots, find a gal, marry and settle down.

The plot has so many laughing out loud moments with the antics of Pinkie, and no matter what she tries to pull off, Vince learns about it and takes her in hand. Shep and Treli have a way of rubbing each other wrong, and yet they both have eyes for each other. “She is about as welcoming as a runaway train. No man can stop her.” “Don’t try. Just slow her down long enough to board.” When Shep and Treli decide to work together on a project for Pinkie, it gives them a chance to talk and get to know each other, and they realize they are developing feelings. Shep is no pushover, and when Treli puts herself in danger, he takes her in hand. There are some comical situations that have you laughing as the women try and talk their men out of a spanking. There are a few tense moments too. The story has several punishments, and sex is only implied and not detailed. It does have a conclusion to some issues that come up in the story and also a chapter to book three that will be coming out in the Spring.

cowboy protectors

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book. Slingo, Drina, Vince and Pinkie Sloan are all back in the 2nd book in the Rancher’s Bride series. Bart Shepherd meets Treli while delivering exotic animals to the Sloans. When they meet, she finds him annoying and he finds her his. Good story, good length. Cowboys who believe in spanking - discipline and erotic.

Frustrating Rancher

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book. Shep has decided that he wants to marry and hope that his trip to Merriview to deliver some exotic animals to friends will help him find the right wife as his friends are happily married. On arrival he meets Treli one of the Sloan’s wives cousins and is taken by the feisty young lady. Treli finds Shep quite frustrating as he is forever telling her she is not allowed to do something. She soon finds out the disobeying the frustrating man can lead to a very warm bottom. It is a fun book to read with lots of laughter, love and old fashioned men.
