ONCE UPON A TIME, A GIRL FROM SMALLTOWN, TEXAS, WAS "AMERICA'S CINDERELLA." But Lacey McCoy traded her glass slippers for cowboy boots and vowed to make her own dreams come true. Trouble was, who'd hire an ex-countess with no experience? "Iron" Will Proffitt, that's who. Harboring a powerful grudge, the rugged rancher gave Lacey the dirtiest jobs, certain she wouldn't last. But Lacey flabbergasted him by working hard and refusing to be rescued. Suddenly Will's feelings for Lacey moved beyond grudging respect to an undeniable attraction. Sure as heck Will was no Prince Charming-but could he be the right man for Lacey?
