Rorie Campbell has a pleasant, predictable life in San Francisco, where she's seeing a pleasant, predictable man. Then, one vacation, her car breaks down on an Oregon country road and horse rancher Clay Franklin comes to her rescue. Rorie soon discovers that a city girl can fall in love with a country man. But Clay has no right to return her feelings--because he's engaged to another woman.
Kate Logan is devastated when Clay Franklin, her former fiance and the man she's always loved, marries Rorie Campbell instead. But at Clay's wedding--and after a glass of champagne too many-- Kate proposes to her longtime friend, rancher Luke Rivers. Luke accepts her proposal--and refuses to renege on his promise. What's more, he insists that Kate doesn't love Clay--she loves him.
