"You become a true lady when you choose to be wise and kind!", Nate had written in the letter!
Leonie Trowbridge is a beautiful young debutante who’s enjoying the glittering social season in London. This world of sophisticated balls and parties couldn’t be more different from the Colorado ranch where she’s lived for the last three years, but when Leonie’s beloved brother and sister-in-law announce that they’ll soon be welcoming a baby, Leonie abandons the social whirl of London to return to America.
When she returns to the Circle T Ranch and the tiny town of Indian Rock, she finds that a year in Europe has affected her vision. She sees her old home through the eyes of the English aristocracy, and even her affections―such as the love she’d once cherished for ranch foreman Jem McClary―have changed. Now Jem is just another cowboy, and Leonie sets her sights on more sophisticated men.
But when a life-threatening fire and her uppity controlling aunt set them apart, he has to find some way to win her heart a second time.
And when Leonie falls for a rich Englishman, the plain-dealing Jem is faced with an impossible task: to turn himself into one of Leonie’s romance-novel heroes, before his sweet-talking rival wins her heart.
Will Leonie choose wisely? Will her rich suitor’s secret be exposed?
