Handsome, eligible ranch owner Stuart York was not one to mince words. Ivy Conley, his younger sister's best friend, found out the hard way. During a night's stay at his Jacobsville ranch, Ivy wound up in Stuart's arms. The resulting fireworks singed them both...and knowing she was too young, Stuart closed his heart to her. Now, years later, Ivy is determined not to be treated like a little girl anymore. Although still an innocent, Ivy knows she has to fight her own battles, but for some reason Stuart is always fighting them for her, and keeping her from harm. And, safe in Stuart's arms, Ivy feels like a woman — a woman who belongs to him.
When Carson Wayne approached Miss Mandelyn Bush of Charleston with his outlandish proposal, it was My Fair Lady in reverse. The ornery, reclusive cattleman claimed he wanted to learn how to court a lady, and the genteel Miss Bush was the only one equal to the job. Who else would undertake the sentimental education of a confirmed bachelor who slurped his coffee, ate peas on his knife, and regularly indulged in barroom brawls? No other woman dared approach him. And even Mandelyn soon began to wonder whether a few lessons in manners could ever make a gentleman of an outlaw like Carson Wayne.
