A few weeks after witnessing her stepfather order a cold-blooded murder, Cassandra Bowlin hides aboard a luxury yacht to flee the men who are after her. Dashing into a closet, she trembles in fear of discovery until the owner enters the room with a woman intent on gaining his sexual favor. The scene she witnesses between the couple leaves her shaken with arousal, making her wonder what she has been missing from her own sexual encounters.
Zachary Allen-Vancuren returns to his new decked out yacht, eager to take her out on a maiden voyage before presenting her to his friends. After putting several miles between him and the mainland, he slips downstairs and finds he’s stuck with a stowaway, with secrets she refuses to divulge and a determination to wring as much from his planned four-day excursion as possible. His refusal to engage in any sexual activities is met with her constant, teasing antics until she finally wears him down and he gives her the lesson she thinks she’s been wanting.
It takes interference from a surprising source and two rescues by Zachary to free Cassandra of her stepfather’s threats and enable her to embrace a future with the one man she hasn’t been able to resist.

That did it. Zach slowed the yacht, throttled down until the large vessel decelerated enough he could cut the engine and still enjoy the slow glide on the water as they drifted. He’d managed to stay seated while Sandie propped herself on the lounge in his direct line of vision, teasing him with shapely legs he pictured wrapped around his back as he pounded between them. The quick strokes of her pencil made him as curious about her ability as an artist as he admitted to being about the rest of her body under that shirt. It had taken extreme effort on his part not to give in to that curiosity and he’d been priding himself on his control before she stood and stretched.
Ignoring his command to remain unaffected, his cock hardened into a painful erection pressing against his zipper. The final straw came when he watched her bend over the rail, just enough to tease him with a glimpse of the sweet, plump under curve of her soft buttocks. She’d been pushing him for a lesson, and as he strode across the deck, he decided it was high time he gave her one.
“What are you doing, Sandie?”
She turned, those green eyes conveying that indescribable ache he had no name for. The one that pulled at him from the moment he’d startled her awake in his room.
“Taking in the awesome view from your…” She paused, a light of mischief replacing the ache in her eyes and a small smile flirting with the corners of her mouth as she finished with, “boat.”
He narrowed his eyes, accepting the taunt as he strode forward. “I warned you.” Grasping her shoulders, he spun her around, placed her hands together back on the rail, and shackled them in place by wrapping his much larger hand over both hers. Without pausing, he flipped up the shirt and swatted her silk covered ass, the thin, see-through panties providing no cushiony barrier this time.
Her soft cry resonated across the water along with the slap of the next smack. “This is what comes when you don’t heed my warnings.” Two more sharp smacks that bounced her round globes. “This is just one of my favorite things to torment a woman with.” Another two, these reddening her sit-spots. “Sex with me is my way, whatever I demand, whenever I say, wherever I want it.” He tormented her thighs next, two swift swats on each before caressing his way up to cup one, spank-warm, malleable buttock.
Bending down, he nipped the soft flesh between her shoulder and neck. He felt her jump, heard her sudden, indrawn breath and could almost swear the slight breeze teased his nose with the pungent aroma of her arousal. A lesson, he reminded himself with a swift, brutal pushback of his body’s demands.
“You’ve been parading around out here wearing nothing but a shirt and panties to get my attention, haven’t you?”
