Cast out of China, Chin knows all about how hard life in a foreign country can be, especially for a woman on her own. Given the name Jade and a job packing in the crowd as an exotic dancer at the Red Petticoat, Chin thinks she's finally carved a safe and secure place for herself when, looking out across the dance hall, she spies the son of the man who murdered her family. Panicking, she flees into the night, into the worst storm in living memory.
Struggling on a failing ranch, neither Cullen Drake nor his brother Garrett has any idea how to combat the illness ravaging their herd. But the night Cullen finds himself slogging after sick cows during the worst storm in California's history, he happens to be in the right place at the right time. At first, he thinks it's a child he's rescued from a flashflood. It's not until he gets her home that he realizes Chin is every inch a woman grown...and a woman on the run.
Chin knows better than anyone the risks of staying too long in one place or letting people get too close. Yet the harder she tries to escape, the worse off she becomes until finally, sick and wounded, she finds herself unable to run. Her past is closing in, but Cullen has a past of his own and a fearsome determination to protect her, whether she wants him to or not. Having been a bad man once himself, he knows he can handle whatever - or whoever - has Chin so afraid. Unfortunately for her, he also knows how to handle young ladies more interested in running than behaving.

Several Spanking Scenes..
Chin, the female lead, is running from her problems.
Cullen, the male lead, is having a few problems of his own on his ranch, especially when Chin runs straight into of Cullen's life.
The story line is centered on misunderstandings and secrets.
Cullen is very aware that Chin is running from something, or rather she is running from someone dangerous and yet this book has several spanking scenes that I found to be distasteful.
** I missed the disclaimer before requesting this book:
"This book contains the spanking of adult women and sexual scenes." **
I am so tired of reading books where the males beat up or spank the female leads.
It seems as though most authors are adding it into of their writings lately.
I don't find it erotic, sensual, or romantic, at all, that grown men smack grown women around.
This sentence was in the book description:
"Unfortunately for her, he also knows how to handle young ladies more interested in running than behaving."
Really? The female lead needs to behave as if she is an unruly child or new pet?
The story line was interesting and that's what drew me in, and, if the spanking scenes would have been omitted, I would have rated this book higher.
Anthony Lee did ok with the narration he needed a little more energy for the different characters.
