The Widow Wagon: Second Chances by Megan Michaels


They’d found him with an Indian arrow in his back. What was a woman supposed to do with one dead husband, one untended farm, and zero options? Strength, sass, and a never-give-up attitude had served Sophie well, but after the death of her strict, but loving, Clive, she’d need a lot more than those qualities to survive.

There might be one way though, one last desperate option... and they called it the Widow Wagon. Widows and their children could purchase safe passage in a covered wagon to the Oregon Territory — where they would all meet up with the strong, determined men looking for mail order brides. The Widow Wagon might be one man’s last, best hope.

For Daniel Weston, losing his beloved wife had broken more than his heart, it had broken his confidence that he could conquer the west. From the first moment he set eyes on Sophie he knew he wanted her, to make her his in every way. Her dramatic curves, bewitching eyes and fiery temper drew him, called to him, fired his possessive lust. But would that attraction be enough? He could already tell there was going to be a reckoning — and that reckoning would be the heated meeting of his work-roughened palm with her soft, bare bottom.

Yes, she was beautiful, intelligent, and with a little more attitude than would be good for the health of her backside, but Daniel thought he had what it took to break the spirited filly. What’s more, could Daniel dare hope for a second chance? How she reacted that first time he bent her over his lap — or strung her up in his barn — might be the key to whether or not this marriage of convenience in the American west might bloom into something so much more. Would this young, headstrong, mail-order bride allow herself to be molded, tempered, and disciplined into the woman — and wife — this demanding, dominant frontier man desired?

Mary Jo☆☆☆
Sophie and Daniel have had hard lives and try to find a little happiness courtesy of the Widow Wagon. The wagon master provides safe passage for widows and delivers them to their prospective grooms for a price.

What worked/what didn't: What worked was the historical/western aspect of the book. The author provided great detail as far as the living conditions of post-civil war life in rural America. I also enjoyed the domestic discipline aspects of Sophie and Daniel's relationship.

What didn't: The overwhelming amount of disasters that befell the couple, and the timeline issues. Most life events occurred within one chapter and the aftermath explained in the next while moving towards the next life event. I don't know how else to explain it.

Part of a Series: Yes, Second Chances

I have enjoyed Megan Michaels’s Service & Submission series greatly, so when I saw she had another series to offer I scooped up the chance to read it! Even though historical romance is not usually in my wheelhouse.

I enjoyed the story of the recently widowed Sophie getting aboard the 1800s widow's wagon in pursuit of a new life after her quite dominant husband is killed by Indians. Sophie travels to Kansas to meet her new mail order husband, Daniel, via the widow wagon to start their new life. Daniel seems to love discipline as much as Sophie's deceased husband, much to her dismay and maybe, also to her delight! The erotic story that follows was classic Michaels with lots of butt tanning punishments and me wiggling in my seat. While I didn't feel the western aspect of the novel added anything to the story it didn't detract either. I was pleasantly entertained throughout.


Johanna☆☆☆
This should of been aptly named the spanking! Have a spanking fetish....please seek this book. It has all the spanking you will ever need written on numerous pages about...spankings. Very little plot as this book kills off one husband in colonial times and widow seeks a new one by mail order bride. Panty combustible if your deviance is spanking. Dominance and order... Three stars of entertainment!

Although it is not often that I veer into historical romance, the blurb on this book had me intrigued. I got a simple romance with undoubtedly hard times thrown in, but mostly of spanking! It was an interesting departure from the normal in control businesswoman cedes to lover scenario. Sophie was a dreamer, and Daniel liked order and rules. There was however always a spark which made it work, and made it an easy read.



The adventure of writing and getting a book published has been amazing! Reading has always been a passion for me and as far back as I can remember, I have always had at least one book on the go. Erotic romance and spanking romance are the books I crave. Who doesn't love a strong, alpha male who spanks? And if that man can be a cowboy or a pirate, well the perfect situation has been created. The bookcase shelves in our house and my Kindle are filled with BDSM, Spanking Romance, Age Play, DD, D/s, Historical Fiction, Historical Romance and Erotic Romance.
