Reuben has been searching for his mystery girl for twenty-four years. He knows he'll recognize her when he sees her, because he's had visions of her for more than half his life. But when he finds her, she isn't at all what he expects; she's mouthy and obnoxious with an attitude, and he yearns to tame her. Alice has sworn off bossy men. She's had too many awful experiences, and not a single guy has lived up to the promises they've made. But when Reuben Weston starts paying her attention, she can't help but give in and try one more time. Maybe, if she's very brave, or very lucky, she'll find someone worth breaking for.
