Love versus ambition!
Bella Francis is an heiress whose duty is to marry a wealthy young man of her father’s choosing – which is why she ran from that life. Bella follows her friend and fellow suffragette to a western town in Texas, where she pursues owning her own bakery. She finds the perfect space, but the man who owns the building not only refuses to lease to her, but also had the nerve to spark her interest!
Luca Ruffini has a buyer for the family bakery and is in the process of selling the building to pursue his own dreams. His father, who doesn’t want to sell the building, insists Luca put his plans on hold for six weeks to give Bella a chance to fulfill her passion for baking. Yet Bella is a temptation he finds himself unable to deny.
In the end, whose dream will be fulfilled and who will give up their dream for love? Who will concede?
