After Jenny's high-stress life as an interior designer in the big city ruins her health, she goes to a ranch in Texas to get back to nature and work as a housekeeper. But when she finally gets there, she doesn't meet the person she was expecting. Instead she's greeted by a burly and unsociable cowboy named Everett. When she asks to see the man who hired her, he tells her his brother died a week ago. Feeling pity for a girl who has nowhere else to go, Everett ultimately decides to honor his brother's dying wish and hire Jenny.
