A man needs someone to share his life. Rorie wanted to be that ''someone,'' wanted to be the woman in Clay Franklin's life. From the moment her car broke down on an Oregon country road and horse rancher Clay Franklin came to her rescue, Rorie's own life began to change. She discovered that a city girl could feel at home in a close-knit country community, that she'd be welcomed by people like Kate Logan, Clay's delightful neighbor. And Rorie discovered that a city girl could fall in love with a country man. But Clay Franklin had no right to return her feelings -- because he was engaged to Kate.
