Lady Adelaide Berkeley’s life has changed drastically. Her father is dead and his unscrupulous business dealings have been paraded all over the newspapers. Destitute and alone, Adelaide makes the difficult decision to leave England until the scandal has passed. She feels the perfect place to visit is her aunt’s cattle ranch in the Wyoming Territory. However, when she arrives, she discovers that she is half-owner of Brisbane Ranch. The other half belongs to a handsome, but infuriatingly brooding cowboy.
Broderick Wakefield has worked hard to make Brisbane Ranch one of the most profitable cattle ranches in all of the Wyoming Territory. When the spoiled, pretentious Lady Adelaide shows up to claim her inheritance, he can’t believe she would give up her pampered life in England to live on a cattle ranch. He becomes determined to see her gone and will stop at nothing to ensure that happens.
As Broderick sets out to prove that Adelaide doesn’t belong on Brisbane Ranch, he is surprised by her tenacity, despite the rigorous demands of ranch life. When his life is threatened, he finds himself turning to the one person he wanted to see gone, forcing him to recognize that Adelaide isn’t as horrible as he first believed. When someone from Adelaide’s past shows up, can Broderick prove that he really is the man for her, or will it be too late?
