After she takes a job at the Crooked Creek ranch, Melody Jackson quickly hits it off with handsome cowboy Luc Girard, and it isn’t long before she is begging shamefully for more as the ridiculously sexy rodeo champion gives her the ride of her life. But Luc is the kind of man who expects to be obeyed, and when Melody’s disregard for his instructions puts her in danger, she soon learns the hard way that he will not hesitate to punish her bare bottom both inside and out.
Luc’s stern correction leaves Melody blushing crimson yet deeply aroused, and her need for him only increases as he claims her ever more thoroughly over the coming weeks. But when she is finally forced to reveal the secret she has been keeping from her employers, will Melody end up losing not only her job but also the man who has both mastered her body and tamed her heart?

“Because you didn’t fuss overly much, I’m going to take the plug out before I spank you, but no, my darling girl, you’re about to get your first spanking.”
He marched her into the bedroom and directed her over the bed. He bared her bottom, slowly removed the rubber plug, and rubbed her in that same place to soothe the sting.
“I want you to get undressed and then go stand in the corner.”
“Luc, please. You didn’t tell me I had to stay on the porch.”
“That’s true. But the fact you picked up that bucket to take on that stallion tells me you knew it wasn’t safe to be down there… didn’t you?”
Melody thought he didn’t need an answer until she felt his hand connect with her backside, making her yelp.
“I asked you a question, Melody. I expect some kind of answer. You knew it wasn’t safe down there.”
“All right, I knew. But Queenie was scared.”
“Queenie was behind a sturdy steel fence panel and that stallion wasn’t going to get to her. Was she upset? Yes. Was she in danger? No. You do not put yourself in the way of a wild stallion like that.”
“You and Ryder both did.”
Luc shook his head. “Yes, two experienced horsemen mounted on well-trained horses both with lariats worked together to rope that stallion. We were not a lone woman on foot with a bucket. Now, get naked and go stand in the corner.”
Looking in Luc’s eyes, she knew that he was done talking and would not be swayed. She decided it was best to heed Sierra’s advice and accept that this was happening and that the sooner she did as she was told, the sooner it would be over.
She stood up and took off her clothes, putting them away while Luc went into the bath and washed and dried the butt plug and put it away.
Melody stood in the corner. This was almost as humiliating as having that plug up her ass. She didn’t like either… at least that’s what she wanted to believe. But with both she felt a pool of desire gather between her legs.
She could hear him undressing before he joined her in the corner. Standing directly behind her, he ran his hands up and down her body.
“You put yourself in danger this afternoon, didn’t you?” he asked quietly.
“Yes,” she admitted.
Luc took her by the hand and led her back to their bed. He too was stripped of all of his clothes except for his jeans. He sat down on the bed and pulled her back across his knees. He allowed her to get comfortable as he trapped her legs between his. Luc rubbed her backside until she relaxed and then raised his hand and brought down the first hard swat.
