Sunny Winslow knows exactly what she wants: a mature man, solid, reliable, true to his convictions, and handsome, who is established in her new town, Carrollton, Texas. When she meets the blacksmith, Abel Armstrong, she’s immediately hooked. Unfortunately, her mother has other plans for her that do not include a blacksmith. Her mother is determined to tie Sunny to a town counselor who has a suspicious past. Sunny is desperate to escape the counselor, so she embarks on a series of schemes to get what she wants.
Abel Armstrong has some skeletons in his closet. In the year of 1872, it’s quite the scandal to be a divorced man. Over the course of the last ten years, he’s had to work very hard to get his reputation back. Meeting Sunny is like a breath of fresh air, but he can’t afford to throw caution to the wind and force their joining by doing something disreputable.
Can spankings teach Sunny to have some patience and trust that Abel’s way is the right way? And, can Abel deal with Sunny’s impulsive scheming and keep his standing in the community intact?
