Years ago, Alex Diamond walked away from the family fortune and was considered an outcast. So, when he returns for his father's 80th birthday, he's careful to keep his distance. Leigh Ann Percival is Edward Diamond's long suffering administrative assistant. On top of trying to please the old man, she finds herself dodging the attention of Maxwell Diamond. The youngest of Edward's sons is relentless in his pursuit, driving Leigh to make a very big mistake. When she finds herself fired, Alex quickly asks her to take a position at his ranch in Manitoba. Leigh thinks the job is that of the ranch administrator. But Alex has something completely different in mind.
