Corralling Callie

(3 customer reviews)


For 18-year-old orphan Callie Broderick, going west as a mail-order bride seems to be the only hope she has for a decent husband. But when she sets out for the gold-mining town of Sacramento with nothing more than the clothes on her back and a stagecoach ticket, she quickly discovers that the trip will be quite a bit different than she expected.

As a former soldier and an experienced coachman, Jude Johnson is used to difficulties and dangers of all kinds during the arduous journey west, but he has never had to deal with trouble like Callie before. Not being the kind of man to kick a penniless orphan off his coach, he puts up with the sassy, disobedient girl for as long as he can, but when Callie’s antics put the lives of his passengers at risk Jude is forced to take matters into his own hands and spank her soundly.

The stern punishment leaves her thoroughly chastened and promising to behave, and Jude soon realizes that when she puts aside her foul-mouthed, defiant façade, the real Callie is as sweet and kind as she is beautiful. As the days pass, he takes it upon himself to guide her, care for her, and give her the loving discipline she so desperately needs, as often as she needs it. But when they reach their destination, will he be able to give her up?

Publisher’s note: Corralling Callie includes sexual scenes and spankings. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

    I didn’t like the spot. It wasn’t consistent. Judd Pulled over to the side of the road and spank Kelly, because she wasn’t acting right. He is the stage coach driver and he is driving Callie senator and Mrs. Hunter and another couple to California. The one thing Kelly is very immature and it struck me as odd that Judd started having feelings for her and it irritated me that Judd being a Dudley do right, said nothing when Senators and Mrs. Hunter called Kelly every wretched name in the book and like I said. he said nothing. Even though every wrong move Kelly made, he thought was a spankable offense or at least an offense to be preached to. The way Kelly‘s character was written was as if she was a little bit off and not at all a mature young Lady of 18 I just thought if Judd Was going to correct people‘s behavior, he should have corrected Everybody’s. .

    This book from the start was so good, I couldn’t stop listening. Amelia Smarts can take a naive girl and a dominant man can create the hottest stories while keeping the storyline enjoyable and believable. Callie, an 18 year old orphan has been corresponding with her soon to be husband and has to get to Sacremento to marry him. Jude, a coach driver, is convinced to take her on his wagon while he is making the trip. Through her naïveté, spunk and bravery, she creates all kinds of havoc during this trip while trying to keep his paying customers happy. Her misbehaving results in blistering spankings and Jude’s feelings developing to love. The slow burn between these two is hot it has to end once Callie reaches her fiancé. Or does it?

    Gideon Welles has an incredibly low voice, that rasps perfectly for an old west character. His portrayal of this book is nothing less than perfection.

    From the Frying Pan Into the Fire

    I received this free audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed in exchange for an honest review.
    For me this story should have ended in Sacramento at the Chapel before the graphic details of the ‘honeymoon’. If this book was labeled erotica, I wouldn’t have picked it up. Callie was an orphan in a horrible situation and ran off to e a mail-order-bride and met up with Jude the wagon master who set his sights on her and controlled her unruly behavior. In my opinion, his discipline was abusive and took away from the otherwise good story. The narration was good.
