Product Description

Product Description

Trapped by duty and older brothers undermining her for too many years, Isabel Piper yearns to leave drudgery behind and become a modern woman, befitting of 1893. She wants freedom, and independence. With more determination than actual familiarity of how to do it, she heads off to start a new life in a western railroad town of Overton, Colorado. Unprepared by her eastern upbringing, she finds western men crude, and bossy. Determined that she will not be discouraged or tolerate interference of her plans, she forges ahead until she meets the one man that will not get out of her way.

After only one look at a pretty, green-eyed, redhead who flattened a man with an iron skillet, Deputy Hutch was captivated. He had a good idea what his perfect woman was supposed to be like, but the gal he’d decided on didn’t seem to want to fit into his plans. She didn’t particularly want anything to do with him. He’d have to find a way to bring her around, but that wasn’t going to easy if he kept having to warm her backside trying to keep her out of mischief.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 27 Aug 2014

I had no expectation that I would enjoy reading this book. I was doing so as research for someone else and spanking! Oh really! To my surprise this was an engaging novel of a much put upon young woman starting a new life. Although capable and loving she still has much to learn about just how to behave and who better to to teach her than Hutch the town sheriff. There are some interesting passages about marriage and how men and women need to treat one another. There is plenty of drama and spanking which actually work well in the plot. Historical detail abounds and I loved the character of Isabel. A good read.

This is a great book with a really substantial number of pages. The story's eponymous hero, Isabel Piper is an aspiring writer who has found herself trapped in a life of thankless drudgery playing housekeeper and cook to her four brothers following the death of her parents.

When her eldest brother decides to take a wife who has even less regard for Isabel than her brothers do, she decides to leave and begin a new life as an independent woman, made possible by a hitherto unknown inheritance and and several new unexpected income streams bestowed on her by her wealthy aunt.

Thanks to this, Isabel's new life in Overton, Colorado comes complete with a small fortune in the bank and a substantial interest in half the town's businesses.

As a new female in a male-dominated town, Isabel is the focus of plenty of men's attention. None more so than Deputy Bill 'Hutch' Hutchinson, the town's conscientious lawman.

Isabel and Hutch don't get off to a great start especially after Hutch spanks Isabel for endangering herself and then steals a kiss in front of the biggest gossip in town. Isabel may not be wholly convinced by Hutch but it is plain to see that Hutch has been head over heels with Isabel since the moment he laid eyes on her.

Circumstances, of course, push Hutch and Isabel closer and closer to one another. Isabel befriends Sarah, a teenager who has been abused by the local playboy and then shunned by the whole town. And the three of them become a close family unit. There are plenty of characters in this story. Some better drawn than others. The one bum note was the minister and his wife's story which I didn't think brought much to the book.
