Marc Taite is shocked when Cassie Edwards, the only girl he’s ever loved, suddenly shows up in the club room of his Colorado vacation lodge for the first time since she broke off their romance without explanation and refused to answer his calls. He hauls her upstairs with the intention of spanking her soundly and then getting some answers, but when their old passion flares to life he ends up taking her up against the wall instead of taking her over his knee. The connection they once shared clearly still exists, but Marc has already lived through the pain of losing Cassie once and he is determined not to let himself be hurt again. Desperate to prove that this time she is truly ready to belong to him, Cassie promises Marc her complete submission, and she soon finds herself on her knees with her bright red bare bottom on display as she begs him to claim her in any way he pleases. Though he is reluctant to risk his heart again, Marc’s need to protect Cassie quickly overcomes his hesitation after he discovers that a stalker has followed her to Colorado. He takes it upon himself to watch out for her, punishing her sternly when she disobeys the rules he makes to keep her safe, but when a misunderstanding leads her to flee from him will he lose her a second time?
