Lainie Sam dreams of becoming a brilliant doctor. Focused and driven, she cannot allow anything to distract her from her studies, until her part-time catering job puts her in the path of two powerful men: Hal Barmak, the handsome state governor, and Mason, a lecherous man who plans to bring Hal down.
Mason attacks her to keep her silent after she witnesses a murder. Hal tries to protect her, even tossing her over his knee for a bare bottom spanking when she won’t listen to him, but she is too independent for her own good.
Hal knows he’s falling in love with her, but fears that all the spankings in the world won’t be enough to mold her into a suitable wife for a governor. Lainie rebels against his rules, but can she escape the desires of her own heart?
