Crystal Stapleton has everything a princess could want: ski vacations, a suite to herself in her parents’ mansion, even her own Prince Charming. Too bad there’s a mean streak lurking under the surface of her fiancé, one that her parents refuse to see. With her father’s prodding to marry a well-connected and wealthy man and her mother’s constant, ugly, domineering attitude, Crystal is prepared to do as she’s told, regardless of how unhappy her future will be.
But a chance two-week stay at Carson Hill Ranch brings her not only a newfound sense of freedom and joy, it also brings her face to face with the decidedly good-looking and very unattached Jacob Carson. The more time she spends in Jacob’s presence, the less certain she is about the future her parents have laid out for her.
Will she accept the freedom a cowboy like Jacob can offer? Or will she do what she’s expected to do, no matter how much it hurts her heart?
