Destitute after her father's death, Caroline Douglas finds herself in a bind when the sleazy, rich business owner wants her father's debt in full. He won’t take 'no' or ‘I owe you’ for an answer. She finds herself dragged to the Harlot and the Hero, forced to work off her payment. When she thinks things can't get worse, they do. To save her reputation, she finds herself saying 'I do' to a sexy, overbearing cowboy. Tired of following the rules of men, Caroline decides to push back.

Willing to stop at nothing to finally claim the beauty as his wife, in his bed, he makes a deal to get her out of the clutches of one of the richest men in town. However, marrying her is one thing; keeping Caroline out of trouble is another. He’ll just have to keep her over his knee until she learns. When danger strikes the area and threatens the safety of his wife, he will do what's needed to protect her.
