After all that they have been through together, and in spite of Dani’s increasingly bratty behavior, Dani and Emma’s love grows stronger and steamier every day. Emma continues to spank Dani when necessary, slowly but surely helping her realize that their love is for keeps and running away when things get tough is not an option.
When Dani is contacted by an old family friend, who turns out to be part of the Italian mob, she discovers a past and a “family” she had forgotten long ago. This family becomes more important when Emma's extortionist father takes things too far and directly threatens their lives. Forced into hiding, they find refuge and acceptance with Zio Frankie and Zia Toni.
Although Dani’s new family is fun-loving and warm, life in hiding is tough on both women, especially Dani, whose restless personality resists the rules that have been put in place to keep her safe. Once Emma discovers that Dani has repeatedly broken those rules and has put her life in extreme danger, Dani knows she deserves the worst spanking of her life. But even if Emma can again follow through and provide the discipline she needs, will it be enough to ever stop Dani from running toward trouble?
