Still, Chance is easy to love but problems arise as he's not the only McCarron male who pulls at her heart. Older brother Jake McCarron is an intrigue that is hard to resist, but when a series of 'accidents' threaten Chance's life can Amy trust her heart and believe in Jake, or does he want his brother out of the way so everything will be his.

But when his grandmother steps in and hires a new governess, he's not only faced with challenge of running the ranch but keeping Amy safe as he tries to make her his governess forever.
