Badly scarred from a car accident, Lily Brownfield finds that her shallow fiance wanted only a beautiful statue to hang on his arm.
Unsure of what to do, and unable to work with the man she was going to marry, she finds herself at home, thinking about her options. One day on the beach, a newspaper floats up the beach to her. It`s a newspaper from Oklahoma and someone is advertising for a cook on a ranch.
Having hired her over the phone, Case Longren never imagined what would happen when she showed up on his doorstep fresh from California. Unsure why she`s there, he hires her trying to ignore the things that she makes him think about. Like having her there when he came home every night.
After some hard times, Case finds out why Lily left California and is ready to punch someone`s nose in. And gets his chance when her ex-fiance shows up in Oklahoma, unable to believe that she would stoop so low as to work on a ranch.
Lily finds out about Case`s past, about the mother that had walked out on him when he was a mere boy because she wasn`t happy.
And together, they conquer fears and find that love was there waiting for them all along.
This is yet another wonderful story from Sharon Sala. Always A Lady tells the tell of how a woman can rise above anything and show the world that she is not afraid, and will not back down for anyone or anything. And Case is just what I`d envision in a cowboy - long and lean with a tender heart and a watchful eye.
I`d recommend this to anyone who loves cowboy romances and, well, to anyone else who wanted a good love story!
