(from back cover)

A softhearted Baltimore Heiress--lovely but disastrously tenderhearted Diamond Wingate has terrible trouble saying "No": to the poor and unfortunate; to entrepreneures with big plans and no money: and worse, to the silver-tongued young men who line up to propose marriage. So far she has managed to keep her three fiances a secret, insisiting she cannot marry until she turns 23. But her birthday--and disaster--are looming...

A hardheaded westerner---Rugged, independent "Bear" McQuaid has never taken a dime he didn't earn by his own hard work. But now his dream of building a railroad, so close to coming true, is about to collapse from lack of funds. Approaching Baltimore's infamous "soft touch," he learns she has other assets as well: a delicate strawberry blond beauty and shining intelligence--and a facination for the romance of railroad. Then Bear uncovers Diamond's embarrassment of riches in fiances as well as money and charms. Now he must make a choice: finance his dream through a little genteel blackmail, or do it the hard falling in love.
