All her life, the pampered mafia princess Perlita Moretti has lived in luxury and under the protection of her mob boss father’s home. The motto ‘an eye for an eye’ comes to light when her home is brutally attacked by another mafia family on the night of her birthday. Faced with the shock that her father and all the servants have been killed, Perl takes her new car and drives off into the dark of the night towards Las Vegas. There she planned of seeking protection with one of her father’s partners until the killers were brought to justice.
The ‘real’ world outside her Long Island mansion was much larger and more intimidating than she ever expected it could be. Lost and alone, she ends up at a small roadside diner in western Pennsylvania where she boldly runs into Henry ‘Hank’ Billings. Before he knows it, the visiting cowboy rescues the willful, spoiled young lady from the goons sent to retrieve her as a ‘prize.’
Against his better judgment, Hank allows Perl to accompany him south to his Texas ranch to keep her safe until the mob relinquishes the search. It does not take long for the girl’s attitude to present itself, or for the no-nonsense man to teach her some necessary lessons in basic manners and good behavior—starting with a trip across his knee for a Texas-style bare-bottom spanking.
Hank’s initial intentions are purely altruistic, particularly since the extensive age difference between him and Perl would seem inappropriate in the eyes of the little town of Great Price, Texas. Unaccustomed to hearing the word ‘no,’ Perl makes it clear that she will go to every extreme to gain what she desires and find a way to convince the handsome, gentle-hearted cowboy that knowing what was best for her also meant accepting what was best for himself.
When word circulates that the mob has located the young woman, the town flocks around to offer protection, but this doesn’t stop her from doing what she knows is necessary to free her from the past—facing her father’s murderer and discovering the truth behind the raid. The risk of being caught was high, but one that she was willing to take. No matter the cost, Perl has learned that love meant fighting for what she desired most in life—her beloved cowboy.
