Stacy Adams's world collapsed with the sudden death of her father. She had to figure out what she wanted to do with her life now that she was wealthy and alone except for her dog and her horse. The secluded family cabin in a Texas valley seemed a perfect place to think. But when Stacy met the arrogant rancher, Cord Harris, all her hopes of peace and serenity vanished. Especially when Cord said, "Go back to the city, where you belong." It was exactly the wrong thing to say to Stacy. It made her fighting mad-and determined to stay!
