Marla Hazelton is a wealthy heiress from Boston. She grew up in a life of parties, and social functions, but she finds extremely difficult to trust men. She feels that they are always after her money. That’s why she decides to be brave by answering a mail order bride ad in the paper in order to start a new life away from all these riches.
Jake Randall is a wealthy rancher who inherited his successful ranch from his father only a couple of years ago. He’s had nothing but trouble with women throwing themselves at him because of his fortune. There’s one in particular that his mother has been pushing at him over and over. He is sick of it and wants to marry someone who doesn’t care about money.
So Marla and Jake start corresponding. They both tell the truth about themselves, but keep their fortunes as a secret. When Marla arrives, they get married and Jake takes her back to his ranch. She is shocked to see that Jake is wealthy and she is immediately furious that he lied to her about this.
At the same time, Jake’s mother is plotting against Marla by working together with the woman that she thinks is a better match for her son. Once Jake finds out that Marla lied to him gets so ticked off that she was so upset with him for not telling the truth when she had done the exact same thing.
Will they, and their precarious new feelings for each other, survive all the scheming from Jake’s family that aims to push them apart? Or will they both lose their only opportunity to find true love?
