Headstrong Mary Gates longs to once again make the family
stables the finest in England — so she bids on the famous
Spender stud. The only way to pay for the beast is to
marry, but her only prospect in the village is her equally
headstrong neighbor and chief rival, Tye Barlow. Mary's
been tempted by his masculine charms in the past, but
she's determined not to give in to him now.
So Mary boldly goes to where the husbands are — London.
She succeeds in taking the town by storm, but the marital
prospects are uninspiring when compared to Tye. He's
followed her...and is clearly determined to thwart her
plans at every turn. Still, she can't help but recall his
protective embrace whenever they waltz across a ballroom,
or dream of his tantalizing touch each time they kiss. And
soon, Mary realizes she might have to take the greatest
gamble of all...
