There are those who study her as if they know something she doesn’t. Approaching her twenty-second birthday, she is painfully aware she has never been courted and never been kissed.
After graduating from normal college, she accepts a teaching position close to Knights Ferry. Much to her dismay, during a community social, a well-dressed man she's never met before asks her to dance and then forces a kiss upon her. Rather than being flattered, she feels ruined.
After purchasing land east of Oakdale, James Hennessy, like his Italian mother’s side of the family, finds growing fruit trees and a small table grape vineyard competes with his love of practicing law. At a dance, he meets a delightful woman who reminds him of his Italian heritage. When he realizes she is the object of unwanted attention, the fiery Irish from his father’s side comes to the fore. He steps forward to rescue her. He soon finds himself representing members of her family in a cause important to his own interests—stopping the hydraulic mining that is clogging the Valley’s rivers and streams that provide the water the farmers need to irrigate their crops.
Madeline hires James to uncover the secrets that plague her. However, will what they learn drive him away? Fortunately, she has two young twin brothers, who, like their oldest brother, want to become cowboys. For now, they’ll settle for corralling a good husband for their big sister, even if they have to rope and hogtie Madeline and James to get them to the altar.
