The Red Petticoat Saloon is open for business



The Red Petticoat is not just another whorehouse. This is a place for every painted lady to get her happy ending. Madame Jewel and her ‘gems’ welcome hardworking men to come inside for a home-cooked meal or a few hands of cards. They are invited to listen to a pretty girl sing or watch a show. If a bit of intimate comfort is desired, they are welcome to go upstairs and into the arms of one of the beautiful women wearing the red petticoats. However, refer to its gems as whores and you’ll find yourself tossed out into the street. 

This story all begins when Lady Juliette Gardner discovers she has been set up and her reputation ruined. She decides to leave England for good and find her way to the goldfields of California with the hopes of creating her dream and possibly striking it rich. 

To Gabriel Vasquez, the hard work and isolation of working his claim is the only way to achieve his dream. When he discovers his new partner is a woman, a very beautiful, very stubborn English woman, he has no problem – except for the fact that she refuses to think of her safety. If she is to be his partner, he will have no hesitation teaching her exactly what happens to naughty, cheeky English ladies.

Gabriel and Jewel will discover that life has room for more than one dream and as they settle themselves in Culpepper Cove. This mining town, nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains, will never be the same once Juliette—Madame Jewel—opens The Red Petticoat. 

Join award winning author Maggie Ryan as she begins the tale of The Red Petticoat and all of Madame Jewel’s precious—but slightly flawed—gems.

“Convent or whorehouse, I don’t care! I wash my hands of the both of you!”

Juliette stayed in her seat, her luncheon untouched, as she watched her father storm from the room. Not once before in her life had she heard another speak so blatantly to the patriarch of the house. She could barely remember this woman; having only seen her rarely throughout her childhood. What she did remember was that her father had seemed to hate his mother-in-law, perhaps blaming her for producing a daughter too weak to survive childbirth. As for her grandmother, all she remembered was a stately woman who spoke quietly and slipped into her room at night to tell her stories about a mother she would never know.

“Come, my dear,” Willamina said, and without hesitation, the only child of her dear daughter slipped from her chair and ran into her open arms and promptly burst into tears. “Shh, I promise everything will be fine.” The words were softly spoken as Juliette was led into the parlor and pulled down to sit beside her grandmother.

“I-I…” Fresh tears coursed down her face. Willamina patted her cheek and pulled her head to rest on her shoulder.

“Cry. Cry until you can cry no more and then, child, we will discuss how to make sure there is no need for tears in your future.” Juliette did just that, soaking her grandmother’s shoulder with tears of release. By the time she felt as if not a single tear was left to shed, an hour had passed with her thoughts turned inward as she battled for her identity. Sitting up, accepting yet another handkerchief to dry her cheeks, she realized she felt as if she’d shed a weight she’d carried for years. The weight of trying to make her father love her, the weight of disappointing him at every turn—the weight disappeared as she finally accepted the fact that she would not spend another moment on such impossible tasks.

“So, what do you have in mind, Gram?”


“Tea? How is that going to help my future?”

“Child, you will make your future and I will help. But, you should know that everything is better discussed over a nice cup of tea.”



Author Bio:


Author for Blushing Books.  I write both contemporary erotica and historical spanking romances.  I enjoy writing about characters that enjoy the provocative D/S lifestyle of today’s times as well as taking a step back into the past to write stories that take place in the Victorian era with age-play as a theme.  

I live in the great Lone Star state with my wonderful husband.  I have always loved reading.  Growing up in a family with four children, it was difficult finding a place to be alone.  I was probably one of the squeakiest clean girls on the planet as I would spend hours in the tub so I could read without being bothered.  It wasn’t long before I began to make up my own endings to the books I was reading.  From there, it just seemed natural to begin writing my own stories.

I never try to restrict myself to any one genre because there are just too many delicious possibilities out there and inside my head.  I admit to being somewhat of a romantic though as my stories always must have a great deal of love, passion, corporal discipline and, of course, great, mind-blowing sex.  I want my readers to be able to see, hear, feel and know the characters that I’m creating as well as I do when I bring them to life and transfer their stories to paper.  I want my women to be strong of character but also strong enough to know that submission given in love and trust to your partner does not make you weaker, it makes you far stronger.    I want my men to be sexy, strong, demanding alpha males who know how to take what they want while acknowledging it is a gift they have been blessed with by the women that have chosen to submit to them.  I want there to be no doubt that they truly would die for the other no matter how others might view their relationship.
