Widow Alexandria Kirk is trying to get back into the dating scene. She meets and dates several men, much to the displeasure of her neighbor who seems to always be looking out for her even if she doesn't appreciate it.
Police Chief and neighbor Zachary Bentley, nicknamed 'the enemy,' spanked Alex when she was eleven and tried smoking. She's never forgotten or forgiven him. Since her cat, Muggins, periodically escapes and torments his dog, Sugar, Alex has no recourse but to deal with Zack's veiled threats.
Will Zack resort to the same punishment if he thinks Alex deserves it?
