In 1885 Flint, Kansas, Amy Baxter finds her plans to marry the wrong man foiled by the arrival of her lifelong friend, Polly, back from school, and the return of her childhood nemesis Race Jordan, a handsome ex-Texas Ranger.
As willful as a wild horse, Amy has had her mind if not her heart set on marrying one man for years. But her fiance doesn't share her love for horses and wants her to move to the city. Race Jordan is a different story. A former Texas Ranger, he's at home in the saddle enough to land a job on Amy's farm. And though Amy sensibly reins in her attraction to Race, Polly can see the spark that ignites and the fire that burns every time the two are together. So, before her friend makes the mistake of a lifetime, she must come up with a devious scheme to rope two passionate hearts together forever.
