Accustomed to the finer things that her daddy’s money can buy, Anya reluctantly agrees to a year on the family ranch, a rite of passage for heirs of the Brandywine fortune. Expecting to be met by a driver in a limousine, she sees a pickup truck covered with dried mud. The dirty vehicle reeks of manure, but one look at the sexy cowboy whose hands are on the wheel of the aromatic vehicle and Anya decides that a year away from the city may not be so bad.
When Anya first arrived at the Brandywine Ranch, it was Dylan who was assigned to show and teach her all aspects of a working ranch. He had volunteered for the job, a little too eagerly, once he had seen a photograph of the Brandywine princess. Anya was beautiful, with long flowing locks of auburn hair and bright blue eyes. But Dylan had no interest in anyone as young as Anya. He was in his mid thirties, and a twenty-two year old woman from the city was not part of his life plan. He preferred women of the region who knew how hard life on a ranch could be. He was ready to settle down, but a spoiled little rich girl was not wife material to a man like him.
Anya arrived in a frilly bright sundress and white open toed sandals, and Dylan tried not to laugh when she attempted to wipe the dirt off the seat of his truck. She finally gave up and sat down carefully, crossing her legs and holding her purse in her lap.
Dylan opened the door to his Montana home and waved Anya inside. She stepped inside and looked around for the woman with whom she was supposed to live.
“Where is Debbie?”
“Change of plans, I’m afraid. Debbie is home with her newborn baby.”
“I have to stay here alone?”
“Nah. I’ll be here.”
Anya backed away as if she had been threatened with a gun to her head.
“Honey, there are two bedrooms, and I’ll be out of here in the morning before your pretty blue eyes see the light of day.”
Anya managed a slight smile, but she stood as still as a statue as Dylan brought her bags inside and placed them in the front bedroom.
“All set. My room is way back there.” He pointed toward the back of the cabin past the kitchen.
As soon as Dylan turned his back, Anya scampered to the little room and closed the door.
The first morning on the ranch Anya was awakened at 5:00 in the morning, which was in stark contrast to her usual 10:00 in the morning. She looked at Dylan through half opened eyes. “Are you crazy?”
“Nope. I will see you outside in ten minutes.”
Anya placed her feet on the cold floor. “It’s dark outside,” she whined, but Dylan was already gone.

Michael Cartwright has made billions in the oil industry, but he never passes on an opportunity to make more. His latest venture takes him to Appalachia… coal country… where he meets Jenny, a sweet waitress who he can’t help but fall in love with. But can a girl far removed from the glamorous life that Michael has carved out for himself adjust to life in his world… and is it fair to ask her to?
Jenny turned and started to walk away but Michael pulled her back with an arm around her waist. He slowly raised his hands and gently touched her smooth young face. He wanted to kiss her slightly parted lips, but he feared rejection from the sweet innocent woman. He knew that he had to kiss her, though, or he would regret it. He held her tightly and ran his tongue along her parted lips. He pressed his lips to hers and kissed her the way that Jenny had been dying to be kissed. It was her first kiss with someone as mature and worldly as Michael. She kissed him, her mouth opening in a passionate response, and she imagined him being her first lover. Then she stopped and pulled back. What had she done? She didn’t want this beautiful stranger to think she was easy.
Michael continued to hold her as she tried to pull away. “Jenny?”
“I can’t, I’m sorry.” She started to walk away but Michael held her arm. “What are you afraid of?” A backward glance from her showed hurt in the young woman’s eyes. “I’m not fancy like you. I’m a coal miner’s daughter. I’m nothing special.”
