Dayton is one of the South's wealthiest cowboys. He gained his success from cattle ranching and is a rodeo boy at heart. Ronnie meets Dayton while doing an interview for a feature in the local paper on Dayton and it's love at first sight for him. Ronnie's curves and brown skin definitely catches his attention. Though he tries to impress Ronnie, he comes off as arrogant and leaves a bad impression, which is reflected in the feature Ronnie writes on him.
In response, Dayton tracks Ronnie down to ask her on a date so that he might redeem himself in her eyes, and soon Ronnie realizes she is just as attracted to the cowboy as he is to her. Dayton decides to take Ronnie to one of his rodeos, where she acts as his good luck charm. But then a disaster occurs that no one could have foreseen. Will Dayton make it out of the rodeo alive, and will Ronnie? Will the two lovers ever get to express how they feel about each other and try for a chance at happily ever after?
