Thanks to her attempt to make it as a freelance writer, Sara McGregor is on a tour of the west, ending it at a Wyoming dude ranch. She's just there to do an interview on the simple life, but things get very complicated when she meets Cal Pearson. He's nothing like the men she knows back in Berkley; he's arrogant, rude, and he calls her darlin', and she sets out to prove to the irritating cowboy that she's not one bit attracted to him. Too bad it isn't true. Sara and Cal fight it out with humor, stubbornness and a healthy dose of lust, finding out that you can make love work if you're just willing to find a little common ground, in or out of the bedroom, and Sara gets the one thing she never thought she'd want. Her very own cowboy.
