Houston, Texas – Present Day

Socialite Chloe Hemsworth wants to meet with wealthy rancher Sterling Perry to present a proposal to him, but the man delegates the assignment to his ranch foreman, Liam Morrow. Liam doesn't like pampered rich girls and figures Chloe will be the same, so he's not looking forward to the meeting. But the moment they meet, sparks fly between them. One day while meeting at the Texas Cattleman's Club in Houston, a sudden, fierce storm causes major flooding, trapping Liam and Chloe for hours together…alone. One thing leads to another and they're soon making love. Neither can get enough of the other and, after they're rescued, they agree to an affair. But Liam still hasn't changed his mind in thinking Chloe is just another spoiled rich girl.

The truth of the matter is that Chloe is a hard worker who doesn't want to depend on her father for help. She has visions of opening a riding center for disadvantaged girls and is stunned when Liam offers space on his own ranch. Turns out that he is wealthy in his own right and will soon be leaving his current job. Being around Liam both excites and scares Chloe. He makes her happier than she's ever been, but she's scared that she's fallen in love with him. Is she headed for heartbreak?

Liam and Chloe couldn't be more different in how they were raised but they are alike in how they care for others. Liam was helped through college with financial assistance from Sterling Perry and only remained working for the man to repay the debt. It's about paid off, so now he'll be able to work solely on his own ranch in a month. Liam had his hand in several inventions, which is where he earned his millions. Chloe's dad thinks she's wasting her time helping others and she's determined to not only prove him wrong, but that she can do it without his help. The sudden attraction between Liam and Chloe sizzles right from the start and they don't even think twice about resisting each other when they realize it's a good way to pass the time. Yet, as much as Liam is attracted to her, he still can't get past the idea that Chloe is just playing at being a hard worker. After all, that is exactly what happened with his ex…
