But Angus MacAllister is steward or 'tacksman' of a remote Highland township, and Bridie is used to the comforts of a great estate. Life in a blackhouse comes as a shock.

Hello Red Petticoat Saloon readers!
Hasn't this been an absolutely amazing Western series? I have read every single one to date.
You know, ever since I watched Westerns as a small girl, I was captivated by the vast wilderness that is America and by the strong men and women who blazed a trail into the depths of that beautiful, unspoiled land.
I have continued my fascination with the American West as an adult woman, most especially admiring the modern but wholly unrealistic adaptation of a cowboy.
Who can resist the allure of a tall handsome, strong and sexy man dressed in leather chaps and a Stetson? Especially a cowboy fully in command of his destiny and of his woman.
When I was asked to write a tale for the Red Petticoat series - despite the fact I am English and live in the U.K - I jumped at the chance to create a cowboy, one straight out of my own personal dreams!
I hope you enjoy my tale and like Tey as much as I do... sigh.
If you enjoy Sunny's Safe Haven and would like to read another of my Westerns, I have written two: Cowboy Caveat set in the late 1800s and Twin Turmoil, which is a mystery Western beginning modern day but predominantly set in the 1960s.
Sunny's Safe Haven by Vanessa Brooks
When life dealt Sunny a dud pack of cards, she didn't expect a gunslinger to be the one that altered the game!
Stephanie Kendrick is a young woman living in Culpepper Cove. She has been dating her young man, Kelly, for a number of months when she is compromised by him. She soon discovers that she is with child but Kelly, her secret fiancé, immediately disowns her. Desperate to marry him, she confides in her father expecting his support and help with forcing a marriage between her and her erstwhile beau. However, when he turns her out into the street, Stephanie finds her only refuge is the local bawdy house, the Red Petticoat Saloon. She finds support and friendship within the walls of the saloon and when Madam Jewel gifts her with her new gem name after the beautiful sunstone, Stephanie decides to remain there working as a new gem, Sunny.
There have been a number of gold thefts en-route from the co-operative Merit Mine and Patrick Tey, a gunslinger, is hired to protect the shipments of gold being brought down from the mine to the bank. Tey arrives in town unprepared for the sight of a pretty young woman being attacked by her own father. He quickly finds the appealing blonde is on his mind day and night and before long he is smitten. Pursuing her proves problematic. Sunny is convinced her path lies elsewhere; she fully intends living as a Can-can dancer at the Red Petticoat, joining the other pretty gems who work and live in the Californian gold rush town of Culpepper Cove.
Tey has his work cut out for him on two fronts. Uncover the identity of the thieves and convince Sunny that while he adores her dancing skills, he wants to be the sole member of her audience. Will Sunny allow herself to believe she can be loved even though she is a fallen woman-often falling over the handsome gunslinger's lap?

Felix grabs the sassy brat and tosses her over his knee, intent on giving her a firm spanking. Unfortunately for him, the king arrives in the nick of time. But does he? Instead of preventing his daughter's discipline, he carries out his own swift justice. The unfortunate princess and the pirate who dared to tame her are bound together at the wrists by a length of rope.
"The one who removes this rope without my authority will be put to death," the King declares.
He commands the pirate to finish taming his willful daughter, who had been trying to escape from marrying the man her father had chosen. He cautions the pirate to protect his daughter's virtue, but otherwise, Felix is free to discipline her as he sees fit. Only when the princess chooses to return to the palace and marry will the rope be removed.
They have more than their own stubbornness to overcome! Danger lurks at every turn. Somehow, they must learn to work together - their very survival depends on it!
by Alta Hensley
I had two choices in life-to be a breeder, or to be a soldier. To create life, or to destroy it.
I had chosen poorly.The Earth's thermostat is all but frozen, leaving two opposing factions, the Pennas and the Cyans, to spread throughout the forbidding tundra of a planet forever cast in a dark and deadly ice age, seeking only power and control now that the world has become a frozen ball of ice. I was one of the Penna...until I could take no more. Science had almost destroyed our world, and I foolishly helped them continue in this quest. So I left and walked alone on the icy land until the Cyan found me. Until HE found me. Commander Rigby Moss was the leader of the Cyan army, and I was now his captive. Forced to learn the art of submission, as well as the art of war, I became his soldier. From the moment I was captured, I became a mighty warrior amongst a cast of men. But I had a curse that haunted me daily. I was nothing but a mutant who possessed the answer for warmth, waterproofing, and ultimately, survival-feathers. They marked my skin, forever branding me as a Penna no matter how hard I tried not to be. I hated them. They shamed me. And although the feathers kept me alive, I was dead on the inside. But I was HIS. And he would do whatever it took to battle my demons as we battled the enemy. Could a dark and broken woman come to terms with friendship, trust, forgiveness and love? Could a woman taught to remain strong at all times, learn to submit? Could I let go of the darkness, the hate, the death, and all I knew? Was it possible to truly be his DARK FEATHER? USA Today Bestselling Author Alta Hensley brings you an erotic and dark post-apocalyptic story that transports you to a gritty, icy and ruthless world.
Disclaimer: This is a standalone novel, and is a greatly revised, expanded and newly edited version of a previous book entitled 'Lady Templar' by the same author. Dominance, submission, and erotic discipline elements are weaved throughout, including breath play. If such material offends you, please do not purchase this book.
