Elise Garver is about to see her father for the last time. But then again, she hasn't really spent too much time with him throughout her life. Raised to be a very proper young lady by her Aunt Claudia in Boston, Elise must now travel to Texas before Seth Garver dies. Before they lose the chance to ever love each other.
And what does Elise know of love? There's the kind of respectful love she feels for her fiance Percival Bennett, of the socially prominent Boston Bennetts. And then there's the kind she can't quite label, the kind she hasn't known until she meets handsome and surly Tanner Dalton.
Misunderstandings abound as soon as Aunt Claudia and Mr. Bennett descend on the Garver ranch. Will Elise be forced to return to Boston to live a life dictated by manners? Only her Father's love will set her free to become the woman her heart desires?
