Socialite Mercia Saunders got evicted due to a touchy situation--which she feels was justified because it was for the sake of her art. Now her Philadelphia landlady has shipped her belongings to the family's Newport, Rhode Island, home. Her father is livid and demands she choose between being courted by the hand-picked sons of prominent Newport business owners or live scandal-free with her oldest brother on a Texas cattle ranch. To a young woman raised with society, the ranch sounds like boring banishment, but she refuses to let her father choose her beau.
Pinkerton Agent Dominic Prentice is on the trail of a jewelry thief when he first meets the enticing Mercia - too bad he's wearing the disguise of an elderly Southern gentleman. Then he's assigned the task of keeping the art student under surveillance on a west-bound train to Texas. He can't resist a railroad flirtation as himself, and the two draw closer than Mercia's chaperones know. His allegiance to the Pinkerton National Detective Agency is tested when Dominic is forced to decide between tracking the jewelry or wooing the maiden.
