SUGAR BABIES, INC. ~ MATCHED FOR KEEPS
This was it! A done deal! Susan Shaughnessy was down on her luck, frequently unemployed
and mouthy as all get out, but it seemed her luck was about to change. She just signed
a contract with Sugar Babies, Inc., an exclusive matchmaking company, and for the next
year she would be under the watchful eye of one Marcus McCarthy, award-winning author
and spanker extraordinaire. His spanking fetish was no surprise; Sue knew when she signed
the contract what fired Marcus' passion but he was also the sexiest piece of eye-candy
she'd seen in a long time. Marcus kept her on a slow burn with damp panties since the
moment they'd met. At some point today, Susan intended to find out if he was truly the
man he appeared to be and if he was, she would take the monthly allowance they agreed
upon and smile all the way to the bank!
Kelsey Reed was shaking in her shoes as she got into the limo that would take her to her
new home, but at least she had shoes, she thought glancing at Susan's bare feet. Marcus
threatened to confiscate all Susan's 'death-defying heels' but Kelsey was still surprised
when he actually removed the pair Sue wore today and handed them to Sam Barringer, the
owner of Sugar Babies, before getting in the car.
Thank goodness Ty, Kelsey's match and Marcus' twin brother, wasn't that strict. Snuggling
closer she sighed. Ty was sweet and he smelled good, a far cry from the last man who'd
tried to put his hands on her. As a Veterinarian, Ty was naturally gentle and caring.
If he didn't love her, that was okay. At least for the next year she would have a roof
over her head and someone to hold her when she was scared. With her generous allowance,
her days of sleeping in the back room at Fat Rusty's Diner with a knife under her pillow
were over, no matter what happened.
SUGAR BABIES, INC. ~ MATCH ME IF YOU DARE
Marcus learned two important lessons in life; trust your gut and never hide your
true nature. The first made him a best-selling author, and the second kept him single.
Dragging his twin brother Ty to a match-making party was a split-second decision. Sam,
owner and CEO of Sugar Babies, Inc., made frequent offers to find him the perfect woman.
‘Perfect woman’ was an oxymoron and if such a creature existed, he wasn’t interested.
It was difficult to justify spanking a well-behaved young lady and Marcus had no
intention of giving up his favorite past-time. If nothing else, the party might help
get the sassy red-head in the death- defying heels out of his head.
The ‘Luck of the Irish’ eluded Susan, and she didn’t expect anything to change. Running
into Sam on her bike was an accident, something she had plenty of experience with. It
was amazing how quickly her life changed once she agreed to let Sugar Babies, Inc. find
her a match. The suite, the clothes,and room service, all made her pinch herself several
times a day. This was one man and a chance for a lasting relationship – a chance she had
to take. Only two weeks ago, she had considered taking up the world’s oldest profession just to survive.
Kelsey stood naked in front of a large mirror, critically taking note of her body. Small
breasts, slim hips and short of stature, she could easily pass for a child. If someone
were looking for a little girl of their own, she was certainly built for the job, she
thought in disgust. The problem was she didn’t feel young; she felt old, ancient at times. Somewhere along the way all the joy had been sucked out of her. The past couple of weeks with Susan were the nicest she could remember. How long had it been since something struck her as funny, how long since she had slept an entire night without waking up in a panic? The last traces of her black eye had finally faded. Now if she could find a match who didn’t scare her half to death, she just might survive!
If some matches are made in heaven, surely no angel had a hand in this! Seriously? A spanking fetish? And why did he have to be so hot?
SUGAR BABIES, INC. ~ A SWEET AND SASSY MATCH
Sam Barringer worked his way up from the slums of Philadelphia to a corner office with
a magnificent view of Manhattan. A corporate attorney, Sam was a powerhouse in his field,
making more money than he could spend. Still single, he watched quietly as his associates'
marriages crumbled, one after another. It seemed there was always another beautiful
gold-digger ready to take whatever the first, or second or third wife left up for grabs.
Many of his male clients were ridiculously wealthy and so very alone, unable to trust
their own judgment when it came to women. Yet, he knew, there were good women out there. The problem was they worked in coffee shops and school lunchrooms, as bus drivers and mechanics, hardly likely to meet a man who could and would provide them with security, love and guidance.
The men surrounding him were unhappy and frustrated, looking for something they were never
going to find, despite their wealth. It was then that Sam decided to help, and Sugar Babies
was born. Surrounding himself with positive, upbeat people, he resigned his position, left
town and set up a matchmaking service. Quickly Sam discovered that there were a lot more
men like him than he'd previously believed. Men who wanted a loving, respectful and
somewhat obedient partner to share their lives. Men who were naturally dominant and
firmly believed that disciplining their woman was sometimes necessary to insure a healthy,
peaceful and long term relationship.
While scouting out a new location for a branch office, Sam meets Johanna Maxwell. Jo is
beautiful, hard working and everyone's best friend. She could be counted on for house
sitting, baby-sitting or pet sitting, or even a last minute loan, if cash ran low between
paydays. In fact, the only person Jo didn't take care of was Jo. Sam falls hard, but can
he convince Jo that his business is legitimate? More to the point, can he convince her
that when he pulls her over his knee, it's out of love?
CHANGING HER MIND:
Mason's in love and being a traditional kind of guy expects traditional kind of things;
like rings, rice, and church bells. Rebecca's in love too, although she prefers to think
of is as in lust. Oh, she wants him, badly, although, if it's all the same to him, she'll
just skip the church and rice bit and go straight to the blazing hot sex. Mason is a
reasonable man most of the time, at least that's what he tells himself. He is determined
to change Rebecca's mind but, as his frustration level sky rockets, he begins to realize
he might be a little more traditional and a little less reasonable than he thought. Oh,
he's willing to give her blazing hot, it's just not going to be the loving she wants,
it's going to be on her sweet bottom and he's pretty sure it's going to be fun.
I love this story. It's adorable, sexy and unique.
Rebecca is an unusual character. In her story, she's the one who is
afraid of commitment while her fiancé is ready to march to the
altar, settle down and make babies. She'd rather just have the sex,
but Mason is too traditional. He's so traditional, in fact, that he
is perfectly willing to spank her bottom when she objects to his
attempts to rein her in and steer her up the aisle.
The characters have great chemistry, the writing is good and I was
left ready for the sequel. That's what every writer wants from the
reader. Well done, Stevie McFarlane! You've written a winner.
~Fiona Wilde, author of "No Ordinary Affair" and "Serving Girl."
I can not say enough good things about this absolutely adorable
book! It was hot and romantic, had fantastic writing, a brilliant
plot, and was loads of fun to read. Fantastic book, I'm hoping for
LITTLE WHITE LIES:
Nicholas Kord has his life on-track; he is an accomplished attorney, and considered
his trip home to be Best Man at his brother's wedding a long-overdue opportunity to reconnect
with family and have a good time as well. He is still single and in all honesty, the man
oozes sex appeal.
Nick was crazy about Maggie, always had been and always would be. When he saw his son
for the very first time, he knew exactly who Jason belonged to and what Maggie had done.
He was furious at first, but came to realize that a good portion of the blame fell on him.
If he hadn't been so stubborn years ago, things might have turned out differently, but
Nick is also a realist. The past cannot be relived; it's the present and the future that
matter. He still loves Maggie and he means to have her, one way or another, and he intends
to cure her of her bad habits along the way. As far as he's concerned, Maggie had gotten
her way for far too long, and it hadn't served her well. Her children, one of whom belongs
to him, need a father and whether she knows it or not, she needs a husband who will provide
guidance and love; he can be all that and more. Nick has no problem applying a firm hand or
taking a wooden spoon to Maggie's adorable butt when she misbehaves, which seems to be quite
frequently. Who would have thought one knock on her door would change everything forever?
Couldn't stop reading. Great story line, kept me laughing the whole
book. Maggie so real, does things before she thinks. Nick really Is
a white knight to the rescue . Very good read!! --Sara
From the first page I was hooked,as I read I started to see the
story playing out in my mind as a movie.It was funny and sweet and I
love the characters. I can not wait to read the next book from this
writer, she has the talent to bring the written word to life.

MacFarlane is a good story teller...The characters have a depth to
them that makes you care about what happens them. Both the male and
female characters are believable and likable. That the story is
centered around family dynamics makes it so much more relevant. It
is a well crafted story line with all the essentials of plot and
story telling. Thanks for the read.
THE O'MALLEY BRIDES:
Detective Rory O'Malley wasn't looking for trouble when he found Theresa Martinez sleeping
on a park bench three times in one week. He had enough problems trying to keep his sisters
out of harm's way. Frustrated and annoyed, he did something he had never done before; he put
a total stranger over his knee, roasted her ass, impounded her car, and carted her off to his
mothers. Welcomed with open arms by his large family, soon everyone came to love Tess,
including Rory. Sweet, soft Tess was not a good match for hard ass, dominant Rory but to
Rory, it was not a question of if she would submit to him, but when. It was really very
simple; he had to have her, all of her, completely and forever. Unfortunately for him,
the O'Malley women have taken Tess under their collective wings and Rory may have
underestimated the strength of the so called, weaker sex.
Bridget, the youngest O'Malley offspring, is on the prowl, looking for the perfect man
and the last thing she wanted was a man like her brothers or brothers-in-law! As far as
she was concerned they were bossy, over-protective Neanderthals who believed the husband
ruled the house. No, Bridget has her own criteria. The young intern, working in her
brother-in-law, Nick Kord's law office, might just fit the bill. The tall, impeccably dressed, soft spoken
geek, Delbert Winston the 4th, has possibilities. Bridget was not adverse to what she considered a 'project'
boyfriend that she could mold and shape into the perfect guy. Teasing him unmercifully, she tests him again and
again and each time he passes the 'spanking test' and controls his temper. Unfortunately, appearances can be
deceiving and Bridget gets more than she bargained for. It seems even a mild-mannered geek with thick glasses
and pocket protectors can be pushed past his limit.
I loved this entire series. It was the funniest ever. Tess and Rory
were my favorite characters of all. I would recommend this book to
anyone who likes a little spanking ;)... Read in order to enjoy!!!
I Love this Book! It is my favorite of this writer. I am waiting for
the next book at least I am hoping for another book. I am so excited
about Dell and Bridget and their budding romance. I cried at the end
of the book it was such a Beautiful way to end the book. I loved the
way the author exposed Tess to the Love Rory gave to her. I would
marry every man in this series. Lets hope the author writes another
book this time about Dell and Bridget or the back to the beginning
with Sean and Maeve.
THE NOT-SO-LUCKY BRIDGET O'MALLEY:
Clarice Winston isn't exactly crazy about her son's choice of a bride. Bridget is pretty
and smart, but hardly up for the demands of being a society wife and furthering her husband's
career. In order to show Dell just how unsuitable Bridget is, Clarice invites them to a dance
at the country club that happens to be on the same night as the yearly St. Patrick's Day bash
at the pub owned by Bridget's brother and his wife.
No way is Bridget missing the family party, but after Dell applies an attitude adjustment,
she goes along. Clarice even insists in buying Bridget's dress for the soiree and it's the
ugliest dress in history. As soon as Clarice's chauffeur-driven car rounds the corner, Bridget
is back in the shop, exchanging the dress for one guaranteed to make Mrs. Winston's friends
sit up and take notice.
As the dress adventure continues, with negative consequences for both Bridget and her
future mother-in-law, Bridget herself begins to wonder if Winston's mother may be right.
Maybe she isn't the best choice for Dell.
I loved this book. It has such warmth and humor. Bridget and Dell
are made for each other,and the storyline is so cute. The author
followed the other books of this family and keeps them all involved.
It was funny,sexy and I didn't want it to end. I hope we hear more
from this author, I really like this series.
The O'Malley family is a big Irish family that you cannot help
falling in love with and for as often as they are together, I never
get confused. Each character is very well developed and each story
brings out the best of the them.
Bridget and Dell are a couple one would not, at first sight, put
together. Determined to find a man who is not a spanker, the sexy,
laugh-out-loud funny Bridget targets this guy for herself. She is in
for a surprise just as the upper-class, nerdy Dell is in for the
ride of his life. Don't miss reading this one.
Any of the books in this series stand alone as an individual novel. The Not-So-Lucky Bridget
O'Malley is shorter than the others but I couldn't let St. Patrick's Day pass without checking
in with the family. I believe there will be one more book when Bridget and Dell tie the knot
but I'm not sure when.
Currently I am working on a new novel and once again the supporting characters are making
noise about their own stories so it's taking me longer than I had planned.
