The Bishop’s First Bride, by Rayanna Jamison

Rayanna Jamison is sharing a fun excerpt from her book The Bishop’s First Bride. It is the third in her polygamy series, and was my first polygamy story.

I really enjoyed it. It was fresh and sweet, and romantic. And it really opened my eyes to the polygamy community. (But if I were Rosa, I would have done the same thing. You’ll see. 🙂 Read the excerpt!)

 

*****

Carolyn stopped short in front of them, and immediately began to fawn over Luke, and ignore

the fact that Rosa was even there.

“Lucas Miller! Is that you? Well, aren’t you a sight for sore eyes! It’s been what, two years?”

Carolyn drawled, grabbing Luke to her chest in a forced hug. Luke sent Rosa a deer caught in

headlights look, and carefully disentangled himself from the force that was Carolyn.

Rosa breathed a sigh of relief. Of course, Luke had it under control. He had always known just

how to handle Carolyn.

“Carolyn.” Luke’s greeting was short but kind. He was never unkind-he would make a wonderful

bishop, Rosa knew.

“Luke” Carolyn drawled, running a finger across his chest suggestively. “Is that any way to greet

an old friend?” Carolyn puffed out her bottom lip in an exaggerated pout and Rosa couldn’t stop

herself from rolling her eyes.

Luke was too nice. He actually fell for Carolyn’s pouting, and apologized for his short greeting.

Rosa couldn’t believe it. She had always thought Luke too smart for Carolyn’s wiles, and now

with a pout and an eyelash flutter he was eating out of her hand?

“I’m sorry Carolyn- that was rude of me. It’s nice to see you. You look well. Surely, you

remember Rosa Collins?”

Carolyn smiled at Rosa for a half of a second before turning her attention back to Luke. “Are you

just in town for the day Lucas? I’ve just finished my last class of the day, and I was heading over

to this little café over yonder to get a snack. Why don’t you say goodbye to your friend and meet

me over there in a few minutes?”

Rosa saw red. She didn’t even wait to see how Lucas would respond as all rational thought had

left her brain at that point.

She sidestepped in front of Lucas, so that she was effectively wedged between Lucas and

Carolyn, and putting both hands in front of her gave Carolyn a mighty shove- causing her to fall

backwards into the street, right in a mud puddle. “I’m not his friend- I’m his fiancée!”

Carolyn just sat sputtering in the middle of the mud puddle- big crocodile tears forming in her

eyes. “Well- I never!”

“Yeah? Well maybe you should never just a little more often! Why don’t you learn to act like a

lady, and keep your hands off of my man! That’s right Carolyn- he’s mine, and we’re getting

married in three weeks. Forgive me if your invitation gets lost in the mail!” Rosa was screaming

and beginning to create quite a scene, before Luke jumped into action.

Rosa was still screaming choice words at Carolyn, when Luke stepped forward and graciously

helped her out of the puddle- which only served to make Rosa angrier.

Her brain completely left her then, and when Luke reached down and offered Carolyn his hand,

Rosa pushed him over too! Carolyn saw it coming, and scooted out of the way, and Luke fell in

the puddle beside her with a splash, spraying more mud to cover her face and the front of her

dress.

That’s when Rosa finally realized she had gone too far. She watched horrified, as a scowling,

unamused Lucas rose from the puddle. His eyes were dark as he sent her a warning glance

before turning and helping Carolyn out of the puddle.

Walking up to her, he leaned in close. “Do.not.move” he told her, his voice hard between gritted teeth.

*****

Blurb:

Rosa Collins was only sixteen when she received a vision telling her of her future husband.

Knowing that her husband would be Lucas, the Bishop’s son, and future Bishop of Green

Valley, both thrilled and terrified her. They were a match made in heaven, she knew, perfect for

each other.

But becoming the Bishop’s Wife is harder than Rosa anticipated. She struggles to transform

herself into the perfect Bishop’s Wife that her husband needs.

Lucas misses the real Rosa. Somewhere between getting married, and becoming the future

Bishop’s wife, his beloved wife has lost part of herself. Lucas knows that a good, old fashioned

spanking is exactly what Rosa needs to help her find balance in her unrealistic expectations of

what the perfect wife should be. But, try as he might, that balance doesn’t come easily for Rosa,

and it certainly didn’t help that her high school nemesis kept popping up and making trouble.

Will Lucas help her realize that all he wants is for his wife to be happy? Can Rosa pull herself

together enough to become the Bishop’s First Wife?

Polygamy, spankings and a lover from the past- Rayanna Jamison’s The Prodigal Bride

prodigal bride cover

I am so excited to have Rayanna Jamison here, sharing her new spanking romance, The Prodigal Bride!

I absolutely love this premise-  a lover from the past, a reconciliation, and some naughty young women, conspiring against their HOH. 🙂

 I have not read a book about polygamy yet. But the idea (and this great plot!) intrigues me so much, that I have moved this to the top of my TBR.

Here is a  tempting little lead in, from Rayanna.

Enjoy!

🙂

Excerpt:

Hiram banged on the door to Josiah’s small house. “Josiah!” He bellowed, “Open up! I

just called the station, and they said you were off shift. I know you’re home, open up!”

He hesitated as he waited for Josiah to come to the door. He knew he needed to go home

and check on Lucy and deal with Phoebe’s text, and help with the younger kids, but he also knew he couldn’t go home in his current mood. He needed to blow off some steam first, and Josiah’s house was the perfect place to do that.

He raised his fist to bang on the door again, just as a very annoyed and sleepy looking

Josiah flung it open.

Josiah was shirtless, and his hair mussed from the pillow. He had a two-day growth on

his normally clean-shaven face. Hiram winced. He knew Josiah was coming off a long shift, and he had hoped to catch him before he went to bed.

“Hiram,” Josiah barked. “I just got off a twenty-four hour shift. Can we do this later?”

“No,” Hiram said darkly, as he shoved past his brother into the small kitchen and grabbed

a beer from the fridge, chucking the top off angrily.

He watched as Josiah squinted at him, looking stunned. Hiram knew his brother well

enough to know what Josiah was thinking. Hiram rarely drank, and was never one to help

himself to something that wasn’t first offered.

“Oh, I know what this is about,” Josiah said nodding. “Look, Hiram, I’m sorry, I had no

choice. I had to give her a ticket. She was speeding in a school zone!”

“Not what this is about,” Hiram growled. “I’ll deal with Phoebe later. And, I would never

be mad at you for doing your job.”

Josiah sighed, and grabbed himself a beer. “So then, what’s got you so upset, Bro? It’s not

like you. Is everything okay with Lucy?”

“She’s back.”

“She’s back? From where? Where did she go? Was it for treatment?”

Hiram frowned. He apparently wasn’t making any sense. He was all tied in knots from

seeing Sophia. “No, not Lucy,” he corrected. “She didn’t go anywhere. She’s at home in bed.

Sophia.”

“Sophia?” Josiah choked out staring at him slack jawed. “Sophia Randall? In Green

Valley? When did that happen? She hasn’t been back since…” he broke off, uncertain of how much to say.

“Since she swore to the bishop, and her parents, and the entire town that I was her intended husband, and then ran off minutes before the wedding, never to be seen or heard from again until today? You can say it, Jos, I remember all too well.”

Hiram tipped his head back, and drained the bottle of beer in two big gulps.

 

Blurb:

Sophia Randall had no intention on returning to her home in the polygamist community she grew up when she left Hiram Jefferson just hours before their wedding. Though she cared deeply for Hiram and his family, she was young and impulsive.

Ten years, two children, and one monogamous marriage later, returning to Green Valley after the death of her husband is the only option left.

Hiram was devastated when Sophia left him at the altar. With everything already on his plate– between his job as the district superintendent, his large family, and one sick wife, the last thing he needs is the headache of Sophia being back in town.

When his wives go behind his back and form an alliance with Sophia, what is left for him to do but show them the error of their ways with a little old fashioned discipline. But what will happen when he finds out the true reason Sophia left him in the first place?

Interview With New Author Rayanna Jamison

I am so excited to have brand spanking new, (pun intended!) author, Rayanna Jamison.

Her debut novel, Bride Two Soon, is about a very interesting topic – the spanking relationship and HoH dynamic in a polygamous relationship.

Normally, I read about HOH’s who lead (and spank ) one woman. But this book will have double the spankings!

I look forward to reading this, and seeing how Ms Jamison shows best friend / wives “fighting” for the attention and affections of their dominant husband, and seeing how he deals with each of them in turn. This is going to be fun!

Today, we get to meet the new author, and learn more about her and her brand new book.

Bride two soon cover

 

Katherine Deane: Thanks for joining me today, Rayanna. So, how do you feel right now?  Explain the emotions you went through the past week. Have you had time to settle back in or are you still flying high?

Rayanna Jamison: Thanks for having me, Katherine. Well, for starters, I haven’t been sleeping well since about 2 days before the book came out. This entire process has been a roller coaster ride of emotions, and I think my biggest issue is knowing that quite a few of my friends have read my book. That’s a scary feeling. Mostly this has been an amazing process, and I have learned a lot, and made some great friends. I don’t know if I would say I’m on a high, because I have a lot of conflicting emotions, but I am definitely still in a daze.

Katherine Deane: It’s a pretty cool feeling, I agree! Is this also your first written book? Had you ever written before this? Blog, unpublished stories, anything?

Rayanna Jamison: This is my first PUBLISHED book I guess. That being said, it’s also the first book I have written in fifteen years, But when I was younger, I was always writing.

Katherine Deane: Congratulations! So tell me about your book.

Rayanna Jamison: My book is based in a fictional polygamous town that is based off a real polygamous town near where I live. In these towns, the women are given a vision, a name, of who they are supposed to marry. They give the name to the bishop and he informs the intended husband. In my story, Mollie and Ben who are newlyweds, find out that another woman has given Ben’s name as her intended husband, and that woman is Mollie’s best friend Beth Anne. Mollie is furious, and chaos and fighting ensue. No-one can fight quite the way best friends can, so Ben certainly has his hands full between the two women.

Katherine Deane: This is so cool! I love the premise of this story. So this kind of has a fantasy vibe to it, because of the “visions”, correct?

Rayanna Jamison: No, I couldn’t write fantasy if I tried. There is a real polygamous sect that believes this way, and I wouldn’t call it a vision so much as a strong feeling, or answer to prayer. I used vision for lack of a better word.

Katherine Deane: Ok, that makes sense. Who’s your favorite character? Did you use any real life influence for this character?

Rayanna Jamison: Oh my gosh! I’m not sure I could choose. Pretty much all my characters ended up having some real life influence, although I didn’t plan it that way. Probably the only one that doesn’t remind me of anyone is Ben. I like Owen, Ben’s father, because he reminds me of my husband’s grandfather. He has ended up being my most controversial character though, which doesn’t surprise me. He’s very old school, and some think he is chauvinistic, but I think he is wise and kind, and has a big personality.

Katherine Deane: Are you in any sort of spanking relationship? (I am in a LDD relationship with my husband, and confuse the heck out of him with my spankophile nature. Hehe, I like to keep him on his toes! :))

Rayanna Jamison: My husband and I do practice DD, but it is on again/off again. I am a huge spanko, but that’s a whole different story!

Katherine Deane: If you could live out this book, would you prefer to have another husband or another wife in your relationship. (I wouldn’t be able to go the polygamy route, but I do fantasize about being spanked by other men I know.  Like the neighbor guy up the street.  Alas, in real life, hubby would never go for it, and I would feel guilty. So this is all fantasy 🙂

Rayanna Jamison: I could honestly not fathom being spanked by anyone but my husband! It took me so long to even share that part of me with him, so no, not at this point.

As far as polygamy, living where we now live, we have joked about it, but that’s as far as it will ever go. If I had to choose though, yeah, no I can’t I’m too prude!  We used to say I would take another wife and she could do everything (cook, clean etc) EXCEPT have sex with my husband!

So yeah, besides the sharing spouse part, i could see myself enjoying certain benefits in a polygamous relationship. J/k

Katherine Deane: LOL, we are on the same wavelength for extra wives, I think.

Except, my extra wife would be miserable. I’m a huge packrat, er slob, er creative type 😉

Does anyone in your real life know about this cool new adventure you are on? Brand new published author, spankophile…

Rayanna Jamison: Quite a few of my RL friends (and my parents) know my pen name so i don’t mind joking around about implements or getting in trouble or things like that, but I don’t want to go to in depth in a public forum.

Katherine Deane: I can understand that completely. Once it’s out there, it is out. There! 🙂

I do wish I could be open like that with my friends and family. But they are not ready. Maybe someday. Huge kudos to you for having such a great support network in real life.

And congratulations on your first story!

I can’t wait to read it. It is a very different premise that I have not read before, and sounds very entertaining.

Thanks for joining me today.

Rayanna Jamison: Thanks for having me Katherine! This was fun and I hope you enjoy the book.

 

Katherine Deane: Here is brief explanation of an excerpt from Rayanna’s brand new book. Thanks for sharing, Rayanna!

 

*****

Ben has been threatening to spank Beth Anne for weeks, even though propriety says that he would not discipline her until they are married. Beth Anne’s job and her work schedule has been a point of contention for Ben since their first date. He has set some rules in place for after they are married, but when Beth Anne stays late after work, and is late to their pre-marital counseling session with the bishop, Ben can’t let it slide, and decides he must punish her, despite the fact that the wedding is still a week away!

Excerpt

When she remained stoic, he began spanking in earnest. Using his hand like a paddle, spread out with his palm flat, he rained swat after swat all over every inch of her heart-shaped bottom, until he could feel the heat radiating up through the thin layer of her flimsy maxi skirt. It was a light, summery floral print, pink and orange flowers on an ivory background, and he realized that up close and at the right angle, it was nearly see through. He pulled it tight, stretching the fabric against her swollen globes, and was satisfied to find that he could see a rosy pink glow through the fabric. She began to moan and wiggle slightly on his lap, causing a familiar ache in his groin. He realized with a groan that he had to get her off his lap and finish her spanking before things got out of hand. He drew a deep breath and counted slowly in his head before exhaling. When he felt the swelling in his member decrease and diminish, he patted her bottom and helped her to rise off of his lap. She was shaky when she stood and he was surprised to see her eyes wet with unshed tears.  She looked so sweet, trusting and vulnerable that he nearly came undone. He had never been this affected by a spanking before. He couldn’t help himself, he reached out and pulled her into his arms, kissing her face softly, everywhere but on her lips, as they were saving that for their wedding day. He didn’t want to finish the spanking, couldn’t bear to do what he knew he must. It took every ounce of resolve he had to pull away from her.  When he spoke, his breath caught in his throat and his voice cracked. “Good girl, Beth Anne,” he whispered, swallowing hard.

*****

Blurb:

This is a story of love and life- long friendship against the odds. What happens when two life long best friends Mollie, and Beth Anne find themselves married to the same old fashioned man? Can they remain friends? Will jealousy get the best of them? Will their husband be able to fix the problem with a good old fashioned spanking, or two?
