Emily Harris is a privileged young woman who feels like she needs to do something with her life beyond getting married and having children, so she becomes the governess for a ranching family in Idaho. The mother of the two girls is terminally ill, and wants to provide her daughters a stable feminine influence after she dies – and, she hopes, her husband-of-convenience and close friend might fall in love with her. Gavin Blake doesn’t think Emily is up for the rough life of a ranch, but she continuously proves him wrong, and the two slowly, and secretly, begin to fall for each other, despite their own wishes. Gavin sees too many similarities between Emily and his uncaring mother, and knows that Emily is too refined to be with a man like him. Even after the death of Gavin’s wife, they question her wisdom and the sincerity of their feelings, and when the time comes to take action, they both must decide if love is worth the risk.
