Rodeo Sweetheart is the story of Samantha Jenson, whose beloved ranch home has fallen into tough financial times since her bull-riding father’s death two years previous. To make ends meet, Sam and her mom reluctantly turn it into a dude ranch. Even this isn’t quite enough, and Sam’s mom is considering selling out. Sam will do nearly anything to keep this from happening–from being nice to the wannabe cowboy city slickers to making a dangerous plan of her own.
But Ethan Ames, vacationing with his family from New York City, has plans of his own, and they don’t include falling for the ranch girl. What will happen to him and Sam when she finds out why his parents are really here? But on the other hand, what will happen to his relationship to his folks if he bails on their lucrative plans?
