ROBERT: The city slicker had big plans for Dubuque, Iowa -- starting with a hotel he would build on a piece of land owned by Caroline Watson.
At first it seemed a simple enough task -- if money didn't persuade the Watson woman, he'd charm her into selling her land. But he's fooled by his own game when his heart is touched by her sweet beauty, her unsinkable spirit, and her tender care for a runaway boy. Soon his grand schemes give way to a simple dream of a country house where his life with Caroline could take root. But would she ever believe it was her that he wanted -- and not her land?
