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.

A spanking good romance
I liked that the characters were from different backgrounds. Chin's journey from China to America and the circumstances that brought her there made the story more interesting. I also liked that she wasn't judged or belittled for the choices she made in order to survive.
I liked all the suspenseful moments and the big fight near the end of the book which was quite amusing. I didn't like that Chin got spanked a lot but I liked the rest of the story and I would be interested in reading/listening to some other titles in the series.
I received a copy via audio book boom in return for an honest review.
