As the new horticulturist at Rancho Lindo, Nora Torres is determined to make the garden a success. Plants take patience and care, and that should be Nora's focus, not Gabe Ortega, who is back home on his family's ranch after an injury ended his military career. His family hopes he's home for good, but Gabe has always wanted something more than working at Rancho Lindo. So he can't allow himself to be sidetracked by his feelings for Nora when he knows he'll be leaving again. But soon, rather than keeping his distance from the talented horticulturist, Gabe finds what he really wants is to change Nora's mind about him.
