The Demure Bride by Joannie Kay
Amanda Chambers is determined to take a dislike to the Englishman who bought the ranch next door to her father's ranch, but she takes things a step too far when she strikes Robert Thorne across the cheek with her little riding whip.
Robert isn't about to put up with such nonsense, and he puts her over his knee and uses the riding whip on her posterior while she screams bloody murder.
The incident with Rob is the last straw with her father, Matt Chambers. Ever since Mandy came to live with him after her mother's death, Mandy had been uppity and turning everyone against her. He was out of patience, and it appeared that there was at least one man who wasn't afraid of his daughter's temper.
Robert was determined to tame the pretty little redhead, but he had to admit he didn't know when he had ever met such a stubborn, hotheaded female!
