More Than She Bargained For by Megan Michaels


Wild as an untamed stallion, Daisy was never much for going along to get along. Her fiery spirit, burning passion and curvy beauty, which had served her so well in her young life were nevertheless useless to her when a Confederate captain comes calling with grave news. The greatest conflagration to ever befall the country has left its mark on her life too — forever. Lost, despairing, and with little choice left to a young widow, Daisy will nevertheless have to draw one last time upon that fierce spirit to strike out on her own. A new life in the great American west. Far from the misery and danger of the post-War South. A Dane transplanted in Nebraska waits for her at the end of the long trail. A mild-mannered Scandinavian man might be just the thing for her. A gentle man would be easily malleable, no match for the force of her personality. Right?

Training — horses specifically — was what Noah Jensen knew, lived, and loved. A new life far from his homeland of Denmark in the wilds of Nebraska suited him though. He needed the open spaces, the endless possibilities he could never have in his home country. Now, he needed more though — he needed a wife. Marriageable women were as rare in Nebraska as a warm spring day, so a mail-order bride was the answer. He’d been warned that the women obtained in such a way often needed… training. And one Daisy Anderson was a woman who particularly needed training. One look at her lush body, keen eyes, and volatile disposition though, and Noah knew she was the one for him. Now all he had to do was convince her of the same — even if it meant showing her just how strict and unbending a Danish horseman could be with his wife-to-be. He had no doubt she’d be making plenty of trips over his lap — or secured over a bale of hay in the shadows of his barn for a lashing of that round, white bottom of hers. The only question was how many times it would take to bend her will to his.

Spirited southern sass, and female pride were about to collide with a Scandinavian rock more than ready to train his woman as thoroughly — and sometimes as harshly — as his fillies. Would the strong Nebraska Dane be able to tame her body without also breaking her spirit? And what was a man to do when his wife’s Civil War past comes back to haunt her, threatening to unravel his carefully laid plans for a life well-lived — and a wife well-disciplined?

I think this is my 4th book by Megan Michaels. Who, I've decided, is a MASTER at writing the tough love, hard punishments Dom! My Lord, these characters pull no spankings!

Daisy is on the widow wagon heading to her new husband after losing her first in the War Between the States. She's a handful, riling up all the women on the wagon. So much so, one even takes a switch to Daisy's behind before she makes it to her new home & new husband, Noah.

Angus, the kind widow wagon master, has a talk with Noah. Warning him that Daisy needs to be taken in hand and that she's a wild spirit in need of taming. Noah has everything Miss Daisy needs but isn't sure she wants including a nice tail for a misbehaving pony girl.

Michaels writes hard core alpha males that spare no rod and I'm almost ashamed (almost) that I love her for it. Noah is certainly creative with his punishments and we have a little pony play that had me snickering and yet, hmmm...interested?! OMG! The female leads are written strong and full of character so it's not too over the top when they choose to submit to such brutal punishments. Which, in my opinion, can be a hard line to stay within when writing a stern dom. Also, Michaels’s naughty leading ladies never lose the spunk that makes us relate to them, they are never broken, weak or wishy washy women. While Daisy was a bit more sassy and smart mouthed than I like to read, Noah certainly had what she craved and I had fun reading their story! Found it truly enjoyable and I'll admit, incredibly erotic.

This is the second installment of the Widow Wagon series and I must say I enjoyed it more than I did the first book.

In this book, we meet Daisy, a highly opinionated woman from Boston who has been sent West by her parents. Daisy is reluctant to join the Widow Wagon but she soon realizes she has no choice as options for a young widow are extremely limited.

Her soon to be husband, Noah Jenson is an immigrant from Denmark, who has taken a parcel of land in Nebraska and turned it into a thriving horse ranch. All he needs is a wife and family to make his life complete.

This book explores spankings as discipline and passionate release, as well as other aspects of BDSM. If you like "pet" play, then I would recommend this book.

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.
