Description

Sometimes we all have to relax and let destiny take its course.

Chase is finished with his military service and has returned home, uncertain about where his life is heading. Everything seems gray and dull. But then Emma is thrust back into his world, bringing much-needed color and awakening his desire to protect her, even if it means punishing her with a session over his knee when she puts herself in dangerous situations.

Emma grew up on her uncle’s farm and has a gift when it comes to understanding people and animals. She had fallen in love with Chase while they were young and he worked for her uncle. In those days, he ignored her completely. Well, almost – there was the time he took he took her to task in an unforgettable way for jumping into a pen with a dangerous bull! But when she meets him again years later, he doesn’t even recognize her. At first.

As destiny works to bring them together, they are both surprised to find Emma over Chase’s knee again — and again and again . . .

Sample Chapter

Chapter One

Chase leaned on the tall counter in the ER watching everyone around him in motion. His only job at the moment was to make sure he kept out of their way. The thought bothered him a bit. He wasn’t used to being one of the people who stood by and did nothing.

He watched the doctor in charge digest the information she was receiving over the radio about a car accident. There was a young child involved. The young ones always seemed to make it worse for everyone. It intensified his reaction, made him care about someone he hadn’t even met. Hope the kid is okay.

A nurse scooted past him, touching his arm gently, and picked something up off the desk. She winked and smiled at him. He nodded and smiled back to be polite, but nothing more. He moved to a corner farther out of the way. He’d be there if they needed him. He wasn’t in the mood for idle chit-chat or flirty women. He hadn’t been for a while.

He could no longer hear the updates coming in over the radio from the scene of the accident, but he really didn’t need to. There wasn’t anything he could do to help unless someone needed security and so far tonight, everything had been quiet and boring, which gave him too much time to think.

The doctor stuck her head out of the little glass room in the middle of the ER and called to the nurse who had winked at him.

“Hey, Jan. Can you get a hold of Emma? I think we’re going to need her.”

“Will do my best,” she replied, pulling her phone out of her pocket.

Chase poured himself some coffee. He had a feeling civilian life was going to be harder than he’d thought it would be. He felt like he should be doing something to help prepare rather than just watch.

He turned back around in time to see Nurse Jan return her phone to her pocket and stick her head into the little glass room. The doctor nodded, relief apparent on her face.

“Our little angel on her way?” asked a large, mean-looking male nurse who had been giving Chase nasty looks all evening. Not that it mattered to him. He was just a temp filling in for a friend at the moment. He didn’t care if he got along with these people or not.

“Yeah, we got lucky. She happened to be in town grocery shopping. She should be here any minute.”

Chase moved again, feeling restless, even useless. This time he found himself a tall chair next to the swinging doors that led into the ER from the waiting room. He could stand behind it and rest his arms over the back, holding his cup of coffee while still being able to watch everything. He looked around, noticing the walls were white, the floor was white yet the place seemed gray. The lights were bright, but again, no color.

Everything seemed dull and drab in comparison to what he had been doing over the past twelve years. He took a deep breath and another swig of coffee. At least the coffee here is better than the military’s.

The door next to him from the hospital waiting room swung open, surprising Chase. Normally, he would have been called and asked to open it as a hospital security protocol. He held his coffee away to avoid spilling it on himself and stepped up against the wall to keep from being hit by the door’s wide swing. He watched as a woman wearing a long, colorful skirt swept past him. The door closed automatically behind her. He caught a faint, pleasant smell. Was it flowers? Maybe vanilla. He stepped back up to his chair. He watched her skirt swirl at her feet. She was greeted with hugs by a couple of the staff as she made her way to the glass room.

This must be Emma. Her light brown hair was long and wavy and hung down the back of her jean jacket. Her purse was slung across her body and rested low on her hip. People stepped aside to make room for her in the tiny radio room. He caught a glimpse of her face. She wore glasses and was rather ordinary looking, but something about her calmed his inner turmoil. Clipped to the pocket of her jacket was a white badge with a red line at the top. She’s a volunteer? Chase hadn’t expected her to be a volunteer. She reminded him a little bit of a hippie. One of those free-spirited people. He watched, mesmerized, not even knowing why.

He noticed the doctor seemed relieved she was there. Something intense was happening. He could tell by the way that everything had become so quiet. His stomach lurched. He offered a silent plea. God, please let the kid be okay. The woman’s gentle brown eyes were locked with the doctors. He waited to see what would happen next.

Another blast from the radio; everyone within hearing distance breathed a sigh of relief. He did, too. He watched Emma walk out of the room to stand in front of the huge window at the far end of the ER. The sun was setting and became a backdrop, surrounding her body with color. She seemed to be deep in thought. He took another swig of coffee, emptying the cup this time, and then stepped behind the counter to throw it away. It brought him closer to her, so he decided to stay put and leaned back up against the counter watching her. He still wondered why she was there.

She turned to scan the ER. He waited for her eyes to find him, and when they did, it was as if lightning had struck. It was apparent she knew who he was. He was stunned. Who could she be? She doesn’t look old enough to have gone to school with me. No, she couldn’t be from around here. Surely if she were, I would remember. He felt bad when her surprised, happy look turned to sadness. She knows I don’t recognize her. Her disappointment showed. Before he could react and offer her a smile of his own, she had already turned back to look out the window. The sun had fallen behind a distant building. The glass now reflected the ER and Emma’s face. Is she crying? He started to walk toward her, but all hell broke loose as the first ambulance arrived. He backed out of the way and noticed a rocking chair being dragged into a room down the hall.

    I absolutely fell in love with this book! Chase reminded me of many returning service men and women. Emma catches his attention without trying and he eventually remembers her, and realizes he loved her all along. He catches on fast to his need to take care of Emma, even though it\’s clear Emma can more than take care of herself. A woman always giving to others, I was happy to see her on the receiving end of concern. Chase is the man for the job, and Emma brings Chase back to life.

    I really enjoyed reading about Emma and Chase. They are both strong characters who really need each other to make them complete. I liked their growth and hope to read more about them in the future. I liked that both weren’t perfect, they each had flaws (or flaws they thought they had). It makes the characters believable. Loved the dog brought into to the story too.

    Emma had returned from her time as a nurse in the military to take care of her dying Uncle Joe, the man who has raised her on his ranch and treated like a daughter. After his death, she is financially stable and instead of returning to nursing, she works as a volunteer. She has a gifted way of dealing with animals and people, especially during crisis situations. Chase left his military career and has returned to town and is still looking for full time work but fills in where needed. Joe died while he was in the service and he returns to the pond that he and Joe fished out. Emma has had feelings for Chase since she was a girl, but the three year difference got in their way. Now Chase and Emma reconnect and realize that there are strong feelings between the two of them. This story is the beginnings of a relationship, exploring domestic discipline as a couple, learning to be honest, open and trusting. I liked that their acceptance and exploration into domestic discipline has them talking openly and admitting what works and doesn’t work. It is safe, sane and consensual and honest.

    Chase comes home from the military and while filling in as security at the hospital an accident with injuries is broadcast over the radio. When they realize that a child is involved, the Doctor on staff calls Emma in the help. Emma sees Chase there and gives him a big smile. Emma is hurt when she realizes that Chase doesn’t recognize her. Turns out that Chase spent a lot of time at Joe’s(Emma’s uncle) place during his teenage years and that Emma had lived there during that time.

    This is a sweet story. My one sticking point with this book is that Emma appears to be a normal sized woman. The author let us know this several times during the story. This is a personal pet peeve of mine because it seems as if many authors feel the need the regurgitate this information ad nauseam to their readers as if they deserve a special pat of the back for making the heroine of their story normal sized. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and while I thought the story was ok, I felt that she was learning about DD while she wrote about it.

    I liked this story. It was different. The main characters are Chase and Emma. Chase has returned from the military and doesn??t know what he wants to do. He meets Emma while working as security at the local hospital. Emma has come in to calm a child who was involved in a serious auto accident. Chase doesn??t recognize her, but she was the niece of the man who he had done odd jobs for and mentored. They eventually recognize one another and a relationship starts. Emma has daydreamed about a D/d relationship with Chase. Chase has never thought of a D/d relationship before, but he came from a home where D/d was practiced and his older brother used it as well. Chase has a long conversation with his brother and does research online. I liked how this story was about the evolution of a D/d relationship. Chase doesn??t have all the answers and neither does Emma. They have to work it out between them. I think this story deserves 4 stars.

    Emma and Chase knew each other as children/teenagers growing up on Emma’s uncles farm. They reunite years later, and they have both inherited land when the uncle dies. They realize they always had a connection and they are meant for each other. Their relationship is very sweet, and the story is focused on their romance. I wouldn’t mind seeing a sequel to this one as their relationship progresses.

    This delightful, sweet and sexy book was wonderful. Chase was somewhat lost after many years in the military and returning home wasn’t sure of anything. He runs into Emma who was a childhood friend and they reconnect. There is romance, love, spanking and erotic sex. I loved this story and only wanted it to be longer because I didn’t want it to end.
