When champion bull rider Brody Caldera learns his stepfather has suffered a serious accident, he heads home to the ranch he'd left behind years before. Maybe the clean Montana air of the Six Buckles Ranch, near Yellowstone Park, will help him forget his cheating ex-girlfriend. But returning will also force him to confront another woman, the one he deserted when she needed him most.
Ten years ago, Brody had chosen bucking bulls over booties and bottles, leaving ranch worker Stef Chambers to raise their daughter alone. She's done her best to cowboy up for the sake of her daughter and build a good life for them. She can't let Brody's return change that. Damn the man for breaking her heart once. It won't happen again. But Stef's hero-worshipping ten-year-old is enamored by the famous cowboy, and Stef's best intentions are side-tracked from day one.
Is Brody ready to be the man Stef needs, or is he just taking her for a ride? Brody has troubles of his own, dealing with his injured stepfather and a stepbrother enraged that the family cattle ranch is now a dude ranch. Is he ready to settle down and trade bull riding for a bride?
