The men at Barrington Ranch need a housekeeper and cook badly. But when a mysterious and beautiful Louisiana belle with an unusual surname - Beau-Boucher - responds to their ad, no one believes she's up to the task.

She soon proves to them that she's as adept at cooking and cleaning as she is at hiding her secret past from everyone - everyone except Jacob Barrington, that is.

When she decides it would be in her best interest to leave as soon as she can, she discovers that's easier said than done! 

As she tries her best to not fall for the middle son, Jacob Barrington, and at the same time, try everything she can to leave Barrington Ranch, she realizes she's run out of time and places to hide when her past catches up to her. Now she has to make a choice: try and flee again or stand up to the man who had hurt her so badly in the past.

Then Jacob presents her an offer she doesn't know if she can refuse...

  1. For my readers:

    The next (maybe last) two chapters to Belle of Bellville is still in the works. I had planned to submit this weekend, but life got in the way and now I'm swamped with changing my author website and all the headaches that come with it. I hope you'll be patient with me.

    I invite you to leave comments here for this story, or comments on other stories on their dedicated pages. Click on the tabs above and it will take you there.

    Thanks for reading my fantasies!

    1. Hi SM3rryM. Thanks for leaving a post and an inquiry on Belle's story.

      I'm sorry I've been AWOL for the past months. Something had come up and I needed to focus on that first. I'm not out of the woods yet with this issue, but I've at least gotten some "breathing room".

      As for when you can expect the final chapters to "Belle", I've just returned to writing so it might take some time. I know this isn't what you hoped to hear, but I don't want to give you or anyone else reading this post false hope, and I *do* want to write a powerful ending to the story.

      Please know that I intend to finish it as soon as time allows.

      Thanks for reading my fantasies!

    1. I'm in the process of writing it as we speak. I've updated and commented on the reason why this has taken so long at Lit. You can read it here: https://www.literotica.com/stories/storyfeedbackboard.php?id=1271517&pagehint=4#cid5255119

      I apologize that it's taken this long, but I'm currently proofing and editing Chapters 11 & 12 right this minute. I hope to have it submitted in the next two weeks (most likely earlier). Please keep checking back for any more updates.

      Thanks for leaving a comment, SM3rryM. It's nice to see readers invested in my stories. :-)
