1800s – Texas
Margaret knows she’s too plain, too tall, and too outspoken for any man to want to marry her. All she wants is to prove to her father that she can manage their ranch as well as any man could.
But when her father hires Josiah Cutler as the new foreman, Margaret’s dreams are knocked flat. The newcomer seems determined to prove that she is not needed.
As the days go by, Margaret begins to suspect Josiah of a far more dangerous scheme as well, one that will endanger all her father’s hard-earned money. She’ll do anything to protect her father and his ranch – and yet for some reason her heart is torn. There’s something about Josiah Cutler that fascinates her.
