Wade Hunter didn't want a family. Between dodging his drunk father's blows and watching his mother die, he knew at the age of eleven he'd be better off alone. He lived on the run for a couple years--hungry and cold often, but at least he was free. Then the local marshal caught him stealing and gave him only two choices: Spend time in jail or join his family.Sadie Shaw, the marshal's eldest daughter, had enough brothers and sisters, and she wanted another sibling like a dog wants fleas. She's dismayed when her kindhearted pa once again brings home a lost child, and it doesn't help that this one is surly and arrogant. Worse, he thinks that because he's older, he's under no obligation to mind her household rules.Wade and Sadie battle wills often as they grow into adulthood, burgeoning both their dislike for each other and their grudging respect. When faced with a problem that requires their unity, will they be able to set aside their differences, or will the strife they face only tear them apart?Publisher's Note: When He Returns is a coming-of-age, enemies-to-lovers romance with adult spanking and sexual scenes. If you don't like these themes, please don't buy this book.
When He Was Wicked With 2nd Epilogue has descriptive copy which is not yet available from the Publisher.
You're goddamn right. I'm still sitting at the same weathered wooden table in the back of Manhattan's oldest bar where I just finished my first masterpiece, At Night She Cries, While He Rides His Steed. The second I finished it, I started writing this one. I'm now 14 beers deep, and I've polished off an entire eight ball of yay. The phrase "everything in moderation" applies to everything except cocaine, booze, and prostitutes. If you haven't read my last book then you probably won't f--cking understand anything in this book, so you should probably go buy that first and stop being poor. It's f--cking gross.Let's get something straight, my life is so important that you should be grateful I'm even doing this. Seriously, do you know another motherf--cker like me? Me, neither. So let's get down to brass. In the last book, I told you that I was going to off myself after completing my life story. That still holds true. My trusty handgun is still loaded next to my Remington Rand typewriter that Hemingway pissed on, and you know the f--cking bartender isn't going to cut me off, so I'm going to sit here and keep writing my memoirs until I finish. To answer your question: No, I haven't gotten up for bathroom breaks. I just piss on the floor.
