Wade was finding it very difficult to look after his daughter, his house, and himself, in the absence of his mother. Things begin to turn even worse when the beautiful and the annoying daughter of the scam artist comes to his house and asks to stay in his house. She asks Wade Dalton to let her stay as the temporary nanny of his house until the newlyweds come back. This way she will get a shelter to live and will also take care of his 5 year old daughter. Now Wade begins to think whether he should trust the girl or not. He even wonders if he will be able to control himself while the beautiful girl stays in his house with him. Wade Dalton is described by the author as a widower living with 3 children and looking after his ranch. His children used to be watched by his mother for the past 2 years. But, she ran away one night with an artist. Wade did not know of her love affair with the scam artist. On one day, it is the occasion of his birthday and he finds himself very much busy with lots of work on the ranch for the whole week.
Wade’s daughter Nat is 5 years old and goes to elementary school. He also has a couple of sons who are too young to go to school, and a couple of brothers who work along with him on the ranch. The con artist’s daughter, Caroline Montgomery, works as a life coach, who comes to Wade’s town in order to stop his father from marrying his client, who is Wade’s mother. When she arrives at the door of Wade’s ranch to talk to him on the matter, she smells smoke. After a while, it is learned that Wade’s daughter has set the kitchen on fire. Seeing that Wade is finding it very difficult to raise his kids and look after the ranch at the same time, Caroline offers him a helping hand and asks him to let her stay in his house as a temporary nanny.
