Lynn Devry is a single mother with a prickly attitude. As a result of her divorce, her happiness and health have dimmed. In an effort to get in shape and regain her happy fun-loving outlook, she follows the advice of a good friend and her daughter to take a summer job on a ranch in West Texas. She arrives to learn she’s been duped—her job description is not what she’d been led to believe. But she’s signed a contract and will stay until a replacement can be found. As the summer progresses, Lynn challenges her body, tackles old fears, and buries grudges to find the light that is to be her destiny.

Seth Williams, a psychologist and divorced ranch owner, has never gotten over his divorce and harbors a secret hope that he and his ex-wife will reconcile. During the summer, he runs a camp for problem kids. He needs a bread cook, and on the advice of a friend hires Lynn Devry. When the haughty school teacher is thrust into his life, he realizes his summer will be anything but dull. As mutual respect and friendship grows, he learns his happiness lies in the future, not in the past.

Set amid the stark beauty of West Texas, two people disenchanted with love find respect and attraction growing into something deeper. When the Ocotillo Bloom charters the journey of Lynn and Seth as they overcome obstacles and find self-renewal—the reward being love.
