East Coast Spitfires Series


Get a behind-the-scenes all-access pass to Brandy Golden's East Coast Spitfires Series!


All of the books in this series are contemporary romances, usually some suspense or mystery thrown in. Taming the Wind is a detective mystery and I enjoyed writing it very much!

The first book in this series is called Taming His Irish Spitfire, and was actually written over ten years ago. Once I became a full-time writer, I reworked the book, originally titled The Architect and the Window Washer, and put it back on the market myself since it’s not been available for years.

My readers have loved the story of Chessy and Ty and wanted to see Marsha’s story! Marsha Pierson was Chessy’s friend in this book. So I decided to make it into a series about sassy girls on the East Coast.

Taming His Feisty Kitten is Marsha’s and Oliver’s story and takes place around Christmas time. From there, I moved into the Boston summertime and wrote April’s story, which is found in Taming the Wind.

What is the sub-genre and trope?  Did your characters lead you to this genre or was that decided before the story began?

The genre I write in is romance, of course. And I write all sorts of heroes from cowboys to modern men. I don’t specialize in any particular trope, my stories will always have spanking in them though. 

I don’t write dark stories, anti-heroes, or heavy BDSM. I guess if spanking had a breakdown my stories would be considered sweet and wholesome but with some discipline and sexy, spanky fun thrown in.   

One reader described my writing as “Brandy Goldens spanking world.”  And maybe that’s fairly accurate. John Wayne style even, but with more spankings in each story than John Wayne’s movies had.

Are you more character or plot driven?

I’d have to say my books are more plot driven than character driven. I know what I want the plot to be about before I begin, but my characters sometimes take me in directions I hadn’t thought about when I first started.

With many main and secondary characters, how do you keep them separated in your mind?  Do you have a story/vision board above your workspace?

Secondary characters are easy to keep track of. I don’t use storyboards or plan them out in intricate detail. 

I see the scenes unfolding in my head and based on the characters attitudes, the words just flow from them and onto the paper. The hardest part for me is describing the characters so they are memorable. But I like each character to have their body quirks because it makes it so much easier to visualize them in the scenes. 

In Taming the Wind, the FBI director, Jason Ambones, has a white streak of hair around the side of his head from a bullet graze. When the hair grew back, it was white. Memorable character!

Are any of the POVs based on anyone you know?

I can’t say that any of my characters in this book are based on anyone I know, but character traits from people around me, where I’ve worked, etc, can slip in. Especially ones I like.

Was there any one character/scene that was harder to write about than the other?

For me, the hardest scenes are the sex scenes. 

I don’t mind reading them, I just don’t enjoy writing them. And there is the conundrum for me as an author. Sex sells, lets face it. And so does clean romance. I’m caught in the middle. Spanking, while simple and John Wayne style, is still not considered clean and wholesome. And its not truly erotica either. So I’m a hybrid caught in the middle. 

It can be difficult to find that audience that was once described to me as, “an audience who doesn’t mind reading a spanking with their romance.” Finding that target audience can be difficult!

What is your favorite book in the series?

I’d have to say Taming the Wind is my favorite book so far in this series. 

The modern young woman is much more demanding than those of yesteryear, and in a society that considers spanking to fall under the umbrella of abuse, it can be difficult to have the dominant husband have believability in a story. 

And yet so many women imagine and swoon over that exact male that they wouldn’t put up with in real life! But I suppose that’s what books are for. To take us into worlds where we can find the perfect escape from some of the pressures of our real lives.

I know that we aren’t supposed to have “favorites” as far as our children, but seriously, who’s your favorite character and why?

Nat was interesting for me as a character. He had much more patience than I ever intended him to have, but for some reason, he just didn’t want to come on that strong and masterful. I think his character still turned out perfect for April, who needed guidance and maturity, but was totally capable in the job she was doing.

Series question - Who is your favorite couple and why did you decide on their dynamics?

As far as a favorite couple in the series, that would be hard to make a choice. Each couple is different, yet have their own dynamic. 

Chessy is the hardheaded Irish brat determined to spurn her grandfather’s money because he failed to use it to save her parents. Her censure of the wealthy, and her inability to consider she might be wrong tries Ty’s patience to the limit. But he can see the hurt she carries, which makes him more tender. And he’s there for her when her world falls apart with her grandfather.

How do you get inside these character’s heads to find their perfect HEA?

Marsha has some of my insecurities from my high school days. With the extra weight she carries, she’s a lot like I was when I was her age. Of course Oliver loves her just the way she is and that makes him a great character. 

The scene in front of the mirror in Taming His Feisty Kitten could be one of my favorite scenes in the entire series. Oliver finally puts to rest her insecurities about her figure and how much he loves each and every part of her in ways she can’t imagine. She sees herself differently in those moments, looking through his eyes.

What scene in this book/series sticks out the most for you?  Why?

And of course Nat and April were so much fun to write. They have great chemistry all the way through the story and I really like them as a couple as well.

This question is if you write in MULTIPLE POVs not just the hero and heroine - I love the multiple POVs in a book.  It’s not just the hero and heroine, but we get inside the heads of multiple characters throughout this series.  I feel that it gives the story further depth.  Do you think you will write another book or series following this multiple POV outline? (if applicable)

I often write from supporting characters heads. 

In Taming His Feisty Kitten, we got to see inside Al’s head, and the issues he was having trying to make a living for his younger, disabled brother. He doesn’t want to be a bad guy, it’s just easier to make money that way! I’m afraid I have a sense of humor that always comes out in my books. That’s why I couldn’t write dark if I tried. I’d have all the characters turned inside out and rehabilitating by the end of the story. But that’s just me.

Can you give us a hint as to what we can expect next?  Whether a new book and series or a sequel to an existing series?  Can you share a small tease?

I do have plans for a 4th story, and maybe even a fifth. I’m not sure yet. But the next one will be Oliver’s sisters story with Sawyer. It’s not written yet, but it’s coming!

I might also do a fifth one with an older couple who were introduced in the third book.


Brandy Golden is an international bestselling author who has written numerous stories utilizing the domestic power exchange between her hero and heroine. Humor, suspense, mystery, and romance are all in the recipe for gripping stories that grab your heart and won't let go. And when a sexy spanking is thrown in, it's even better!

"Dashing knights, handsome billionaires, sexy cowboys, you name them. I love all those alpha males and the sassy women they fall in love with.

When I'm not working on a story, I'm enjoying being retired in the lovely state of Missouri with my husband, two dogs, and a snarly black cat.

The golden glow of romance is all around us, it's in the air, and our lives reflect it every day. And what's more romantic than a sexy spanking to spice it up? Enjoy the glow, my friends, and spanks to you for reading my stories!"

When Cheshire Huntington realizes that Tyrone Anderson is the architect trying to get the old Odd Fellows Lodge in downtown Boston torn down, the fight is on. 

Chessy, as she is known to her friends, is a red-headed Irish sprite with a chip on her shoulder regarding wealthy people. The old lodge has memories for Chessy that she isn’t ready to let go of yet, and a health spa catering to the sinfully rich is a poor substitute for the historic building. 

Tyone Anderson isn't about to let a cheeky little window washer who insists on dripping water on his new suit every morning from her scaffold get in the way of his new project. He'll take the fight regarding the Odd Fellows Lodge to her if necessary. 

It doesn't take Ty long to realize the little spitfire is hiding a painful secret. He wants to help her, but that's easier said than done when she thwarts him at every turn until he's ready to kiss her senseless or turn her over his knee!


He left her behind eight years ago, now he wants her back.

When Oliver Tremaine runs into his once sweet girlfriend from his high school senior year, the 
now sassy spitfire rekindles complicated feelings he'd left behind. He should never have let Marsha go, and he won’t make the same mistake twice. Even if it means taking her over his knee to remind her who she belongs to.

Marsha Pierson relives Oliver's painful rejection the instant the handsome vet strides back into her life. In eight long years, no man has fired her dormant desires as he has with a single smoldering look. He says he wants her back, but if she was too 
curvy for the football hero back then, why should she trust him now?

There is danger afoot in Hanover Park regarding the Christmas reindeer exhibit, and Marsha has gotten caught up in the middle of it. Can Oliver tame her feisty attitude and keep her safe?


The sexy detective is hot on her trail!

Private eye April Hudson was on the hunt for her father's killer, and she is determined that nothing will stop her. She'd regretfully left Nat Murphy behind after just a few dates, but now one small slip had put him instantly on her trail. With all the laws she's broken in her investigations, she can't afford to let him catch her!

Police detective Nathanial Murphy has been looking for April for seven long months. He fears the worst and blames himself. When he finally catches a glimpse of dark curls and a butterfly tattoo, he realizes she is still alive. Elation vies with anger. He will find her again, and when he does, leaving won't be an option.

Note: This book contains rudimentary elements of power exchange. If a deserving young lady going over a knee offends you, then you might not want to purchase this book. If not, grab this enticing romantic mystery and enjoy!
