Since she inherited her parents’ home, Cara Eckford has used walks in the nearby woods as inspiration for her art, so she is shocked and upset upon finding that ‘No Trespassing’ signs have recently been put up on the property. But when she angrily confronts the land’s new owner, the infuriatingly sexy Luke McCrae, she merely earns herself a stern scolding and a sound spanking.
Despite her irritation, Luke’s bold dominance leaves Cara’s heart racing and her panties soaked.

The past collides with the present-will anything survive?
When Cara Eckford’s parents die in a freak plane crash, her world turns black. Not even Salt Spring Island helps. Even her art can only do so much. But it’s the McCrae boathouse that becomes her haven. Little does she know how her life’s about to change! One day, tired from sketching, she lies on the boathouse’s sofa, drifting into sleep. When she startles awake, why is she wearing different clothes, smelling a strange floral scent? As she tiptoes outside, she’s speechless! On the beach below, stand Frank McCrae and her great-grandmother, Amaruq! Impossible! Is this a hallucination? Somehow she knows it’s not. Shaken, she creeps to the boathouse, lies down, closes her eyes. When her eyes open again, she’s back where she belongs. She’s certain of one thing. She can’t say anything to anyone. Who would believe her? But that visit to the past breaks the darkness in her soul. That is, until Luke McCrae shows up. Seems his grandfather, who’d all but promised the McCrae land to Cara, has passed. Luke’s inherited, and his plans shatter Cara. No two people could be more different. Not only does Luke plan to destroy everything Cara holds dear, he’s very clear about his rules, as Cara soon learns. Could any man be more pigheaded? As the two battle back and forth, neither willing to give an iota, Cara’s pulled into the past again. This time, can there be a way to change the present? Even if true, will Luke accept it? Unlikely. When disaster strikes, Cara’s devastated. Is there any way to fix this? Or will Cara and Luke’s stubbornness destroy something beyond precious?
Libby Campbell’s a new author for me. I liked the premise of this story. Time travel, two people who couldn’t be more different, constantly at cross purposes. Cara has a deep abiding love for the island and its preservation. But it goes far deeper than just being a “tree hugger,” as Luke calls her. This is buried deep in her soul. It’s her inspiration, strength, connection to life. Luke’s absolutely hot and gorgeous, maybe too much so. Stubborn and oh, so sure of himself, getting his way is a daily occurrence. He’s not about to let anyone stand in his way, especially Cara. As strong and stubborn as Cara is, Luke is her match. The undeniable anger and attraction between these two make this story. As much as the island is Cara’s joy, to Luke it means just one thing. His world is the city, his job, his money. But is that really who he is? Secrets are buried in his past shape his every decision. Libby Campbell has a unique talent for painting word pictures. She makes the island come alive in every detail. I was transported, saw the natural beauty through Cara’s eyes, felt her connection to the land, the magic of her surroundings. Luke, his arrogance, dominance, and absolute certainty he knows everything shine through. That being said, while I really like this book, I had problems with several plot points. I want to emphasize these issues are completely subjective. I believe no one else would notice what bothered me. I will definitely be reading more of Ms. Campbell’s books. Her talent is evident, and I do recommend His Land, His Law.
A final note. This is an ADULT book. It contains explicit language with spanking, some BDSM tones, and sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy this genre, this may not be the book for you. There are book synopses and reviews available on Goodreads and all booksellers' websites. Please use these resources. I urge you to leave a review, but with a proviso. Please don’t leave a negative review when you know you won’t enjoy the book. It's not fair to the author. She works hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to a book's subject matter before you buy it, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
