With her courting year over and no men on the horizon, DeLynn Straynar decides to do something different with her life and signs up to attend college. Her first day there, she runs into Zachary Styles, the school’s chaplain and feels attracted, but quickly tries to convince herself she feels nothing for him. Until they meet again and again. With school taking up so much of her attention, she tries to focus on it, but ignoring the gorgeous brown-eyed man is difficult and she’s not sure she wants to.
Zachary is working toward his doctorate. While aware of loving discipline, he never imagines he will physically discipline anyone, until falling for DeLynn. She thinks getting courted will be the hardest part, but their courting year turns out to be fraught with trouble. When her anxiety goes through the roof and she finds herself in a manic mode she cannot stop, it doesn’t take long before she realizes that while sometimes she needs to figure things out on her own, there are also times she needs to hand the reins over to someone else.
Warning: This book includes a formally structured society & scenes of loving discipline.
