Nellie Lancaster has been raised by her over-indulgent widowed father and it shows. She is known to be rude, arrogant, and so spoiled that no man within fifty miles is interested in courting her, much less marrying her. When her father grows terminally ill, he has to face the fact that it was his fault she turned out that way and it’s up to him to remedy the situation before he dies. He calls upon an old friend and business advisor from Big Rock to come help him liquidate his estate. He also wants Philip to take Nellie back to Big Rock with him and find a husband for her.

They all know any man set on marrying Nellie has his work cut out for him. Wes Hollicker has been in Big Rock less than two years, but it’s been long enough to build a successful cattle ranch. It is so successful that he has detailed plans of how to expand and nearly triple the size of his business within three years. He only lacks one thing to make his life happy: a wife. The first time Wes hears about Nellie, he sets his sights on her. So what if she has more spirit and fire than other men are willing to handle? Wes likes fire. He likes it a lot.

Publisher’s Note: This historical western romance contains a theme of power exchange as Nellie and Wes get to know one another.
