You have always been admired; you are attractive and receive constant reassurance of your value and great looks. One day, it all comes to an end with a shattering auto wreck that leaves a large scar on your face.
Suddenly nothing is the same. When your fiancée breaks the engagement two months before the wedding, your confidence is shattered. Aren't you the same person? Were you only admired only because of your youth and good looks?
What is the most logical thing to do? Run and hide! Thus begins the story of Lily Brownfield. She leaves LA behind and takes a job as a temporary cook for a round-up in Oklahoma.
Lily arrives with an Oklahoma-sized chip on her shoulder and her emotions raw with rage. She literally dares anyone to comment on her face or show any interest in her personally. She is surprised when most of the cowboys are more concerned with her cooking skills than her looks.
The owner of the ranch, Case Longren, is attracted to Lily but senses there must be quite a story as to why a lady of quality would agree to come to the hinterlands of Oklahoma to cook for 3 months.
This is a fairly common story line but Sharon Sala breathes new life into it with her insights and writing style. This is Sala's first published book and is part of a short series.
