For St. Patrick’s Day this year, I’m offering a little flash story. It involves two characters from my Journey Series (available at People seem to really like this couple, and I hope you will too. Be sure to leave a comment (right sidebar) in order to be entered into the draws.

Lucky in Love

Gabby made her way through the field slowly, enjoying the green grass dotted with patches of white-flowered clover as she headed toward the pecan grove. It was St. Patrick’s Day and, later, there would be a little garden party to celebrate. It was a good time to take a moment of quiet before all the guests started arriving.

The grove was cool, sunlight shafting through the leaves like yellow prisms.

“I thought I’d find you here, l’il girl.”

Her husband’s deep voice startled her out of her reverie and she turned sharply. “Ace! You surprised me!” Her heart was beating fast, but it was as much due to his nearness as the momentary shock of seeing him. He really was the sexiest man.

Ace’s moustache turned up at the corners as he stalked her, a predatory gleam in his eye. Gabby backed up against a tree, nervous excitement skittering along her limbs.

“You shouldn’t ought to be out here all alone, darlin’. Anyone could come by and take advantage of you.”

“I know I’m far from the house and stables, Ace,” she said softly. “I wanted a walk.”

He nodded and pressed her body to the tree as he leaned an arm above her head and bent toward her. “Happy St. Paddy’s Day.”

She smiled and licked her lips, staring at his mouth. His chest was warm against her breasts. “You’re not wearing green.”

“No, ma’am,” he said, his Texas drawl greatly pronounced as it often was when he was excited. He bent toward her and inhaled deeply, smelling the scent of her floral shampoo.

Warm ribbons unfurled in Gabby’s belly. She might smell like roses, but he smelled like leather and soap and, best of all, Ace.

“I could pinch you,” she whispered. “That’s the tradition.”

“If you pinch me, I’ll spank you, li’l girl. Make your sweet bottom all hot and tender.”

Now it was Gabby’s turn to smile. As she reached for the back of his hand, her fingers poised to grasp a bit of skin, she wriggled against him. That four-leaf clover had been lucky after all!

Ace and Gabby first make their appearance in Liv’s Journey, but then they have their very own book, Ace-High Flush. They’re also featured in the third Journey book, Spanking Her Highness. All the Journey books are M/F, contemporary, erotic, spanking romances. Links and excerpts are available here on my site, and the books are published by (a division of Blushing Books). Blushing Books will release them to the general public (no membership required) later this year. If you like spanking stories with sexy romance themes, check out for details.
