Dolan and Holster Lynnville have their hands full with a clever, mischievous, but good-hearted brat and her friend. Sent out West by her frustrated father, Ranny quickly turns the ranch on its ear. Liesel tries to keep her out of trouble, but that's a man-sized job which the elder Lynnville brother is happy to sign on for. It's when an old suitor stumbles off the train looking for Rany that things really heat up.

How many spankings will it take for Ranny to settle down or for Liesel to lighten up? How much trouble can two young ladies get into in just one summer? And how many weddings will be scattered along the way? Has Rannygazoo met her match? Dolan will have to get a move on if he wants to keep up with the shenanigans on his ranch, but his idea of keeping up usually involves a wooden spoon or a belt!

Chapter One

1901
�You aren�t going to pout like that the whole way out to Texas, are you, Ranny?� Liesel asked.

�And what if I do? Haven�t I got a right to pout? What does Daddy think he�s really going to accomplish sending me out to this God-forsaken wilderness? It isn�t as if I committed some sort of crime that I should have to endure such exile. To me, that calls for a good pout and probably a good bit more. I may just need to do something about it,� Ranny replied, though the pouting tone did turn more pondering than pout. Liesel realized she preferred the pout.

�But why pout at me? I didn�t get you sent down from yet another finishing school. It wasn�t my idea to make a weather balloon out of pilfered sheep innards. I told you not to even keep it in your room overnight, much less try to inflate it. So don�t go blaming me, please,� Liesel begged in her quiet voice.

�No one is blaming you, dearest. If Janet Sawyers in the next room hadn�t had such a sensitive nose, we would�ve been fine,� Ranny eased off a bit.

�Anybody with even half a nose would have smelled that horrible stink, and you know it. Next door? They could smell it across the street!� Liesel giggled while Ranny threw her head back and guffawed.

�It was the smell that did me in that time. Whew, what a stink! But really, I�m not trying to take out my vexation on you.�

�But why are you vexed? Last week you said you thought it was a great adventure to be going out West. You told your father you were �glad to be free from the constraints of the stultifying city�, whatever that is.�

�That was to try and get him to change his mind. I hoped if he thought I wanted to go out West, he�d keep me in Virginia. How am I going to get on with my research and experiments in Texas? I�ll bet there�s not even a library in the whole state.� No library was as good an excuse as any. The unfinished business she was leaving behind her made her uneasy, but that bit of trouble was best left in the dark.

�You brought all those trunks of books with you. They�ll keep you busy. And I�m sure there will be more than enough sheep guts to keep you happy, too. The Lynnvilles raise fine sheep as well as cattle, your father said.�

�I need more than sheep guts to keep me happy, Liesel. I need culture and enlightened conversation,� Ranny argued.

�Oh, really? As I recall, every time we went on one of those improving trips the school organized, you wound up sent home in disgrace for some mischief or offensive comment. I thought you hated the hypocrisy of society ladies and their chatter,� suggested Liesel mildly. The more Ranny raved, the calmer Liesel�s tone got.

�Do you have to remember every little word I ever say?� Ranny demanded, but she grinned in spite of herself.

Liesel smiled her smug smile, knowing she had gotten her point across.

�We�re going to be fine, Ranny, we always are. We�ll be together for a while and we�ll have our books and perhaps even a kitten. Surely a ranch has a barn, and a barn has to have a cat.�

Ranny grinned back. Her friend�s serene attitude always cheered her up when her own stormy emotions tossed her into a muddle. �We�re traveling how many days on this train into heaven only knows what kind of situation and all you can think about is a kitten? Liesel, if I have to move heaven and earth, I will try my darndest, I promise, to get you a kitten, okay? I think you deserve at least that for agreeing to come out here with me. You didn�t have to, you know. Daddy would have kept you on as housekeeper or found you a position somewhere else.�

�I�m only going with you to get you settled in and make sure you�ll be fine. Then you�ll be on your own,� Liesel reminded her. �I�ll start my new job with the MacAlisters at the end of the month.�

�I guess I am getting a bit old for a governess,� Ranny joked. Since there was just five years difference in their ages, they had never seemed like a governess and a child. They were more like friends and Ranny�s father had never expected Liesel to keep his daughter out of mischief. He knew that job was right up there with milking a bull; you could try, but you weren�t going to get very far.

�A young lady at finishing school might have a maid or a companion, but on a ranch, I think that might be a bit out of place. I think that�s why Mr. Lynnville only agreed to let me come out with you and stay for a few days. He doesn�t want you to feel out of place in your new home.�

�I have no idea why Mr. Lynnville has done anything he has done. Why did he agree to let me visit? Why did he insist I arrive before he could arrange to come with me himself? And why did he make that horrible smirk when he first saw me?� Ranny wondered.

�It wasn�t a horrible smirk, you ninny! He was dumbstruck when he saw you. And he wanted you to come out as soon as possible so that you couldn�t talk your way out of the trip. And he agreed to let you visit because he thinks he can reform you.�

Liesel�s answers showed how well she could read people, but Ranny had no way of knowing how right her friend was. �Well, I�ll let him reform me as long as he lets me get you a kitten. You can come see him on your days out from the MacAlisters. You will come see me every week, won�t you?�

�I will if you promise not to plan some big escapade to punish your father for sending you out here. I saw that look in your eye just now when you talked about all this deserving more than a pout. When you start talking about �doing something� I get worried.�

�Don�t worry about anything of the sort and spoil our trip,� Ranny replied airily. She had forgotten her pout a while back. �The train is slowing down. Do you think it could be wild bandits perpetrating a hold up?�

�You say that as if it were a delicious treat you hope the hostess will produce at tea time,� Liesel scolded.

�Well, wouldn�t it be thrilling? We could put on our silly little innocent act and the bandits would let down their guards so we could learn their secret plans. They might even let us get a glimpse of their faces behind their grime-encrusted bandanas that they have slung over their sinister countenances.�

�Which penny dreadful is that from?� Liesel inquired blandly.

�Ten Days, Five Horses, and One Bullet, by Jack Rothmer,� Ranny promptly replied. �Then after they�ve tied us up and left us on the railroad tracks, the Pinkerton men can ride up to save us. Only we�ve pulled out our hat pins and picked the locks on the handcuffs that have been cutting cruelly into our tender wrists. We free ourselves just in time to meet the Pinkertons, give them a full description of the bandits and their desperate intentions, and lead the posse to apprehend the miscreants. Wouldn�t that be just heaven?�

Ranny�s eyes got that dreamy, faraway look Liesel knew so well. �I thought the bandits tied us up, so there wouldn�t be any locks for us to pick with our hat pins,� she pointed out.

�Ropes, handcuffs, what�s the difference? Mr. Rothmer�s heroes are always more than a match for any desperadoes or their vile plans. And of course, you can always count on the Pinkertons.�

�Of course,� Liesel agreed. �But I�m afraid it won�t take a Pinkerton man to figure out that there�s a dead moose on the track and the railroad men are having a hard time dragging it out of the way.� Liesel had lowered the window and stuck her head out to see what was going on.

�That�s not a moose,� Ranny informed her. �We�re too far south for moose. Or is it meece?�

�But look at its antlers,� Liesel argued.

�Those are horns. It must be a Longhorn. We must be in Texas. And everyone knows bandits always block tracks as a way to get trains to stop so they can board. I�ve got to get out there and take a look.� Before Liesel could stop her, Ranny jumped up from her seat and bolted down the stairs from the train car. The dirt she landed on was harder than week-old biscuit.

�Ranny, come back,� Liesel protested. �Are you crazy? The train could start back up any minute. Ranny, where are you going? They�ll get that poor creature out of the way any moment and then they�ll start the train up and you�ll be abandoned out here in this wasteland.�

�Oh, don�t be so dramatic, Liesel,� said Ranny as she picked up her skirts and ran toward the front of the long train to get a better view. Liesel, from where she was sitting could see that the men were almost done getting the animal off the track. One last check and the conductor signaled the all-clear. While Ranny looked this way and that for bandits, the engineer threw the switch that released the brake as the train�s engine roared back into life.

By the time Liesel was able to find someone with enough authority to stop the train and reverse its direction to go back and pick up the lone wanderer, half an hour had gone by. This put the train off schedule for their various switches and crossings which made them three hours late for their connecting train at Warbler Crest junction. The train was long gone and the next passenger train was not expected for two days.

�But there�s got to be another train before then! Why, there�s a train right there,� Ranny reasoned with the train station clerk. She was irritable and filthy, not to mention foot-sore from her long jump out of the train and her foolish attempt at running after it as it roared down the tracks.

This station was small and didn�t put on any airs. Really it was just a crossing with one small, three-sided building for passengers to wait in out of the wind. Apparently one permanent attendant was enough to handle the few people who came through. He managed the train station and all the other services, including the hotel, where both the telegraph office and the general store were also housed. There were other men trudging and hurrying through the train yard, but they were busy doing other jobs for the train that was being loaded right then.

�Yes, ma�am, there are plenty of other trains, that�s a fact. But they ain�t heading to Sweet Gum,� he replied, sounding like he was feeling a bit put upon.

�But I see a train headed southwest right there,� argued Ranny.

�Yes, ma�am, that�s sure enough so. And if you was a cow or a sheep, you�d be all set. But all that gets on that there train is critters, and believe me, Ma�am, meaning no disrespect, but you ain�t never gonna pass for no cow or sheep. They�s much more easier to manage than you. So just settle down and wait for me to get back over to the hotel and open it up for y�all. It ain�t much of a hotel, but it beats sleepin� on that bench.�

�But we�re so close to our destination!� Ranny protested. �And we�re expected. Surely a pair of seats can be found. We won�t be any trouble to the train�s employees.�

�You ain�t gonna be no trouble to the train men, �cause you ain�t gonna be on the train. I reckon you�ll be a heap of trouble to me at the hotel though, �cause a heap of trouble is what you�re used to bein�, ain�t it? We know what to do with little ladies who sass their elders around here, now, and don�t you forget it.� He looked at his hand and then stretched his neck way over and leered at her backside. In his imagination, he saw a sweet picture of her over his knee, squalling and kicking to no use as he brought his hand down time after time on her upturned bottom. He smiled at the thought of the curses she would probably shout. That would just give him an excuse to spank her all the harder. He�d probably wind up taking off his belt and putting it to good use. It would do a good job of striping her bloomers. It would take ten or twelve swats for starters, until she quit the cussing. Then he�d....

�Are you threatening me?� Ranny demanded, snapping him out of his happy dream.

�Just letting you know how things is around here. We don�t take no rannygazoo in these parts, ma�am. You�d best keep that in mind.�

The man stared at the friends like he was scoping out a rabbit in his gun sights and Liesel giggled. It was ironic that a complete stranger could so perfectly describe her enthusiastic charge�s constant scheming, pranks, and tricks. Why, it was as if they had Ranny in mind when they first coined the term! Ranny�s own father had taken to even calling her Rannygazoo�so perfectly she epitomized the term. She could not help leaning over and whispering in her friend�s ear. �How did he know your name, Ranny? Do you think he could tell just by looking that here in front of him was a young lady so full of mischief that her daddy gave her the nickname Rannygazoo by the time she was twelve?� Liesel would have gone on, but her laughter stopped her.

�He didn�t know. He couldn�t. And quit laughing!� she complained which only made Liesel laugh harder until both girls were helpless with giggles.

�Women!� said the desk clerk and turned back to his work.

When Ranny finally recovered, no one was paying them any attention. Ranny looked around to be sure no one was looking at them. �Quick! Onto that freight car. The engineer has signaled the all-clear and they�ll be moving soon.�

�But we can�t do that,� objected Liesel.

�No time to argue. Run!�

The car was higher than it looked, but using the handrails and metal steps, Ranny was able to pull herself up, and then reach down to help Liesel into the empty car. Ranny flattened herself against the wall of the car and signaled for Liesel to do likewise until the train chugged itself into motion. Liesel took a deep breath for a sigh of relief, then regretted it and waved her hand in front of her nose. The odd cow hair and hoof chip were not the only traces of the cows that usually used this car.

�Now isn�t this exciting? A real adventure!� Ranny cried once they�d pulled away from the station.

�Now isn�t this a mess?� Liesel argued. �A real pickle. We�ll arrive in Sweet Gum with no luggage and no one to meet us. Don�t you realize the cattle cars will be shunted to a different area of the train yard? Perhaps a different part of town all together? What have you gotten us into now?��

�We�ve only got another two hours to go,� Ranny reassured her. �Our luggage will arrive at the station with the next train which was due in a couple of days. Until then, we�ll just get by somehow. It�ll be fun.�

�If we survive that long,� Liesel complained. �My bones feel like they�re about to shake out of their sockets!�

Ranny had to agree. She certainly had been on better trains. These cars were made to haul cattle on the cheap and it seemed like their comfort was not a big deal to anyone. For the next two hours the girls were jostled and jolted until their teeth rattled.

�Oh, look,� Ranny cried. �We�re coming to a town finally!�

�I surely hope it�s Sweet Gum,� complained Liesel, sounding frazzled. She wasn�t sure how much more of this adventure she could take.

�It�s got to be,� agreed Ranny. Their hair was a mess, their dresses were a complete loss and their faces were covered with dust and heaven only knew what else. They passed a few modest homes and sheds on their route. Ranny eagerly noted every detail she could catch about her new town before the car finally entered the filthy freight yard.

After what seemed to the girls like an updated version of Noah�s voyage without the rain, the train creaked and groaned to a stop. Ranny and Liesel went to the door and peeped out to look things over.

�Just two sheep in this car? They�re making �em prettier and sillier every year, I guess,� came the half-amused, half-critical comment.

Ranny looked down and saw a dapper looking cowboy, with his large hat cocked jauntily over one eye, and his spurs jingling behind dusty brown boots.

Liesel blinked hard as the man of her dreams approached them. She tried to speak but the only words that she could push out of her mouth were, �How... how... how?� as she backed up quickly into the freight car out of sight.

Ranny, on the other hand, understood right away. �Telegraph,� she said in a matter-of-fact voice. �That clerk finally figured out what we did and telegraphed ahead.�

�Got the cable about an hour ago,� the cowboy said. �I thought about leaving you two to stew in your own juices for an hour or two. Wondered if a resourceful pair like yourselves could make your own way out to the ranch! But I figured when Lynnville found out about it, he�d clean my clock, so here I am, the dutiful host. I�m afraid,� he continued as he dismounted and ground-tied his sorrel, �I�ll have some less pleasant duties to attend to once I get y�all home.�

�And what might those be?� challenged Ranny, smelling a rat.

�Well, I�m afraid I have to agree with the clerk�s take on things. In his cable, he said, �Two women in need of spanking arriving Sweet Gum by afternoon freight train.� That about tells the tale, I reckon.�

His grin put Ranny at ease as he helped her out of the car but Liesel hung back, peering at him from the empty car. �So where�s the other one?� he asked.

�Liesel, come on down here. He won�t bite. At least not hard,� Ranny joked.

The first thought through Liesel�s mind as she edged into sight was, This handsome giant is going to spank me! Disbelief made her heart thunder. She tried to straighten the dirty hairs escaping from her bun but she doubted that it made any difference.

For a moment the cowboy seemed dumbstruck.

Ranny stared at the two gawking at each other like idiots and shook her head. It was a good thing she didn�t need a companion or chaperone, she realized. Liesel had just been claimed! Out loud she said, �If you would stop staring and help her down, we could get started out to the ranch. I assume you are from the Rocking L? We are a mite tired as you can imagine.�

�Uh, oh, of course. Here, this way. Had to leave the wagon over yonder to keep out of the way of the trains,� he gulped as he reached his hands out to take hold of her waist. He helped her down then stepped closer as he kept hold of her, gazing down into her eyes. She blushed bright red beneath the dust and pulled away. The cowboy snapped out of his trance and led the way to the wagon.

He effortlessly lifted Ranny up into the back. Soft hay had been covered with blankets to make seats. The he turned a tentative grin and reached to help Liesel up.

She rudely turned to go around him and held her skirts out of the way as if to keep from brushing up against something nasty. She struggled to lift herself into the wagon before the cowboy could recover his wits and rush up behind her. He bolstered her in with his arm cupped around the most convenient part of her that he could reach. When she felt this, she jerked upwards in outrage and would have fallen over backwards if his arm had not held her. Her reaction was to pitch forward and land in a heap on the wagon floor.

Ranny helped her up as she hissed in her ear, �What�s gotten into you? You, the perfect angel, being rude to our host? Are you Liesel�s evil twin, separated from her at birth and now come to wreak your wicked vengeance by ruining her reputation?�

This is a light-hearted, fun story to read with two romances to follow. I thought that the romance between the secondary characters was more credible than that of the main characters. It was very evident that Holster and Leisel were attracted to each other immediately, even though it took an extraordinary long time for Leisel to admit this. The relationship between Dolan and Ranny developed so slowly that it would have been easy to miss! Nevertheless, it's a bright and breezy story with a lot of humour.

I usually love Chula Stone's writing but this one came up short for me. I found that the story was choppy and didn't have an easy flow to it. The characters were well developed and it had a strong setting and plot. The pranks and mischief that the girls got themselves into was often unreasonable and silly. I struggled to complete reading this story.

This was not the best book I ever read, in fact at times it was a bit choppy. I am givung it five stars becauxe it was a fun read. I lived all the people, but Holster was my favorite. This book made me laugh out loud at times (not an easy task). My favorite part was when Boliver praposed to Mrs Belk, i couldn't stop laughing.

Like another reader, I could not finish this story. Ranny was humorous at first, but as the story continued, she just got down-right annoying. Her constant lies and stretching of the truth irritated me and bordered on being overly immature. Holster was also someone who needed to grow up. Even Dolan, who I thought would be a strong character, let Ranny get away with so much before finally taking her to task over the fried pies. It was just too juvenile and contrived for me.

I just loved this book! It had everything in it that I love. The characters were ALL interesting and fun. It was long, which I love because it gives the author enough time to tell a great story! There was a ton of old western fun and games, complete with fun and well-deserved spankings throughout! GREAT job!

This was a really good western eith strong alpha men who definitly know how to keep their women in line and safe. The female characters were also strong but naughty more often than not which earned them quite a few spankings. But overall this was a nice romance with a good plot and character development.

I tried, I really did try to read this whole book, but I completely lost interest by the middle of it. I'm glad so many others enjoyed it, but to me, there simply wasn't any emotion. There were plenty of contrived spankings. And plenty of hi-jinks I suppose, but there was nothing of substance. Probably just me, but this book did nothing for me. Others seemed to have liked it, so it might be right up your alley. It wasn't even in the same town for me.

I tried, I really did try to read this whole book, but I completely lost interest by the middle of it. I'm glad so many others enjoyed it, but to me, there simply wasn't any emotion. There were plenty of contrived spankings. And plenty of hi-jinks I suppose, but there was nothing of substance. Probably just me, but this book did nothing for me.

A great western style spanking story. Lots of fun and plenty of hi-jinx to keep you engaged.

I read for entertainment, because I just plain love to read. And there are very few stories in my opinion worth reading over an over again. Ranygazoo is at the top of my list. There is a natural waywardness about Rany, I found her antics both stimulating and humorous. I laughed through the whole book! And everytime I re-read it I laugh just as hard as the first time.

Rany and her companion, Liesel, are sent to a Texas ranch to get kind of forced to grow up. Rany has been expelled for four finishing schools and in 1900 this is not a good thing. Her father send her to Dolan to be shaped up. Really fun story and great characers. Really would like to see a sequel.

I truly liked this book. Rany has a penchant for trouble even when she is trying to be helpful. I laughed at her antics and Dolan is a great match for her character!

The spanking scenes were somewhat glossed over and seemed rather on the mild side compared to some of the harsher scenes I've seen in other books. I love the trickster Rany and her youthful pranks. I was a little surprised that the also humerous Holster didn't go for Rany. Wasn't too fond of the instant love connection thing.

This book is super-cool. There is great build up and excitement and it jumps from one adventure to the next. I hated putting it down and was always dying to find out what would happen next.
The book is long with lots of details and great, loveable characters. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Rany is a little firecracker, always getting into trouble, great laugh when they hitch a ride on the stock train. It was good to see lots of old fashioned spanking. The side story of Liesel was very sweet and I kept hoping all would turn out for her. Ruth the snotty rich girl was always fun to read about. A nice feel good stroy.

This is a great story. Full of fun. I read the whole story in one day because I didn't want to stop until the ending. It will make you laugh a lot. Very fun. Thank you Chula.
