After moving away for college, Sage Worthington settled down to a job in the city and only comes back to her parents’ ranch for weekends and holidays. After receiving a call that will change her life forever, she rushes back to the place she always thought of as home and to the two little siblings whom she loves dearly. This is where she is needed, and this is where she wants to be.
Clifton Welsh was raised by his grandparents who have retired to a smaller house built for them on their favourite patch of the family land, close enough that they can keep an eye on their pride and joy. Grandpa turned the ranch over to Cliff to run but that doesn’t mean his feisty grandma trusts him to run his own love life. The rancher has been Sage’s next door neighbour for as long as he can remember. Cliff remembers Sage as a pesky teenager who needed a good spanking. Now that she’s back, he sees her as a beautiful twenty-four-year-old who still needs a good spanking.
Sage needs a husband and she needs him fast, before she loses custody of her younger brother and sister. Cliff is determined to use any means necessary to stop her from doing something rash and dangerous. He is even willing to marry her himself – but is Sage ready to commit to an old-fashioned man who spanks?
I’ve read a few of Masters books in the past, and have enjoyed them all. This book was no exception.
The blurb really does sum up exactly what the book is about – Sage needs a husband and so Cliff is willing to “bite the bullet” and help her out in that matter. But is Sage willing to accept Cliff’s terms?
Throughout the book, there was sadness, happiness, joy, laughter, everything that I have come to expect in a Masters book.
Sage and Cliff were both characters that were easy to connect with and enjoy. The chemistry between them was off the charts, and Masters did a great job at making the story about the two of them learning and accepting each other.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and I can’t wait to read more from Masters in the future.
