Love at first sight really does exist, especially for those who dare to walk along the shores of Dolphin Island.
Demi Jones, an international translator, never felt more alive than when on Dolphin Island. The mystical sea breeze calls to the very core of her femininity. She doesn't understand the submissive sensations slowly overcoming her body, but when boyfriend Kal Durango asks for her hand in marriage, he explains the island's lifestyle as a small-knit community where everyone practices domestic discipline. Demi knows he's the man for her, but she has serious doubts about submitting herself to anyone and wonders if she is strong enough to submit her heart to his, especially when it includes placing herself over his knee for correction.
Kal Durango, a security contractor for NASH Global, fell hard for Demi the moment he saw her building sandcastles on the seashore, ass high in the air as she refilled her water bucket. She's intelligent, independent, fun, and a whole lot of sassy, but it is when she is careless and rude that he is glad he practices a lifestyle that approves of old-fashioned solution to correct her naughty behavior. He wants to make her his wife and teach her the island way. The only thing left to do is convince her to agree to a bare-bottom spanking, and lots of them.
Nancy always dreamed of becoming a doctor and planned to spend her life focusing on her career, giving little thought to marriage or having a family. Luckily love found her when she met Sebastian Zeal in college. Supportive, gentle and loving, Sebastian was her rock through her long years of medical school and residency, even leaving his own teaching career after an unexpected pregnancy.
Despite being a successful doctor, Nancy longs to give up control to her husband and have him spank her when she needs it. Unfortunately, Sebastian doesn't understand her desires, instead believing an equal partnership is the only path to a successful marriage.
He eventually agrees to give Nancy the occasional spanking, but she wants more, and ends up tricking her husband into moving to the spanking community of Corbin's Bend. When Sebastian discovers Nancy's deception he decides to embrace the lifestyle, but Nancy soon realizes there's a definite difference between dreams and reality. Will this couple find their balance and embrace their new lives in Corbin's Bend, or return to their old way of life at the first opportunity?
Anna wanted a job but was unprepared for the emotional labor she would endure when she convinced Carter to hire her to keep house and mind his small son after the death of his wife. She discovers that the gentle, teasing demeanor she'd witnessed from the cowboy previously has been buried along with his wife, forcing her to contend with the glowering, ill-tempered man who snaps at her and doesn't notice or appreciate her earnest efforts. She quietly suffers his apathy and impatience until a single snub pushes her to her breaking point, causing her to take drastic action to get his attention.
Carter didn't expect such behavior from this sweet, innocent girl. It startles him out of his stupor long enough to feel his palm itching to connect with her naughty backside. He finds himself slowly drawn out of his grief and depression thanks to the gutsy, but kind female presence in his life.
Anna discovers that the return of the cowboy's awareness and ability to care means he is on to her penchant for danger and recklessness, and he's not having it. She finds herself getting the bare-bottomed spanking of her life, and feels loved by a man for the first time. Then he abruptly ends her employment. Anna flees, devastated and confused, and Carter knows he must straighten her - and the situation - out before he can claim the infuriating and enchanting woman as his wife.
