Wes has come to the gripping realization that he would rather be a lifelong bachelor than to settle for anything less than his heart’s true desire—the love of a strong woman who can be a good little girl in his arms. Having decided that his type of woman does not exist, he represses his need by spending his days working dawn to dusk on his family’s ranch.
When Garrett, his younger brother, who left the ranch for a lucrative career on Wall Street, comes home to visit, he has a new girlfriend in tow. Carrie has an innocence that Garrett's women have never possessed. From her golden curls to her chocolate brown eyes, she is as sweet as they come. Wes is intrigued by her demeanor.
Wes discovers quickly that Carrie has a feisty side as well. When she demands to ride Mabel, his untamed horse, she doesn’t take Wes’ answer to heart. Wes threatens to take Carrie over his knee and her reply is only three little words, “Like a Daddy?” which turns Wes’ world upside down. When Carrie pushes Wes too far, the inevitable happens, and it unleashes a life-altering chain of events.
Will Wes be able to keep his feelings for Carrie to himself? Can Garrett stay true to Carrie, or will his wild ways return? Will the brothers be divided by unexpected circumstances? Will Carrie survive the ensuing turmoil? Or have their worlds indeed been turned upside down for good?

Like a Daddy
Carrie straightened herself to her full height. “I’ll ride her before I leave. Make no mistake.”
An angry, yet playful glint shone in her eyes as she was trying to tug her arm away.
“You make no mistake—you ride that horse, and I will spank your bottom until you aren’t
sitting comfortably for a week. Garrett’s girl, or not.” He held her arm firmly, rendering her tugging
useless. “My ranch, my rules, little girl.”
She stood, shocked, her eyes wide. In a breathless whisper, she said, “Like a Daddy.” Carrie
had dated few men. She held onto them for a few months, but none could fulfill her. Each man
lacked what Carrie desired most. It was something she could never quite put into words. Finally,
meeting Garrett, she had put those thoughts away. Time to settle down and no longer be looking
for something that didn’t exist.
