Morie is a very rich heiress who is tired of her father's constant protection and treating her like she would break. He keeps pushing her to marry a man who he considers to be the 'right' man so it turns out that anyone she dates is really just interested in her money - not her. Even though Morie's dad owns a huge ranch, he will not let her do anything on the ranch except ride the horses so she leaves and gets a job as a ranch hand on the Kirk ranch to prove that she can succeed without her father's influence. She dresses and acts like a ranch hand so nobody knows who she really is.
She does pretty well at the job until her boss' girlfriend, Gelly, feels threatened by her and makes her life miserable, trying to get her fired. Gelly tries to intimidate Morie but she doesn't take it and talks back to Gelly. Gelly goes to Mallory to tell him what happened but changed the facts to make it look like Morie was to blame for the whole incident, trying to get her fired. Morie does finally get fired when a family heirloom was found planted in her bag. In the meantime, Morie has fallen in love with Mallory but changes her opinion of him when he fires her without letting her defend herself.
This story is cute and different with a rich girl pretending to be poor and working for her living (which she had never done before). I could really relate to the characters and liked them. Morie is a strong, fun character. Mallory and his brothers all have problems, but Mallory has more than the other two. He thinks that because he is not handsome, he doesn’t have much to offer, and that women are only interested in him for his money.
