Ford Marshall returns to Wyoming temporarily to help his brothers run the Circle M. He's looking forward to some hard work, but also peace and quiet—until Caroline Donnelly hijacks his ranch for her program to help troubled teens.

So why can't Ford get the idea of a Wyoming wife, and coming home for good, off his mind?
