A CATTLE DRIVE IS NO PLACE FOR A LADY IN BOWS AND BUTTONS... Newly independent city girl Josephine Whittaker succeeded in heading West, all on her own. But once she set foot in the crude cow town of Sienna, Wyoming, her first inclination was to board the next train back out -- and she would have, if she hadn't lost everything she owned. Suddenly, a job as a ranch cook seemed a good idea -- at least it was better than making money as a dance-hall girl. It didn't seem that important if she neglected to tell her new boss that she'd never so much as boiled an egg.... UNLESS SHE'S IN LOVE WITH A RANCHER IN DENIM AND RAWHIDE. J.D. McCall knew from the get-go that a pretty lady in the chuck wagon with a bunch of cowboys meant trouble. But he faced mutiny among his ranch hands if he didn't bring home a cook -- and she said fried beef was her specialty. How could he know he'd never want to let her go? J.D.'s own mother had abandoned his father and the harsh frontier life to go back East. Loving Josephine was sure to break his heart...unless this lady proved she had grit, gumption, and what it took to be a cattle rancher's wife -- his wife.
