Foreman Dexter Sublette cannot understand why a Russian princess has bought the Piqon Ranch. Sonia Stephens, formerly Stephanovich, is indeed a princess. Ignorant of the cattle business, she's about as unlikely a boss as one could imagine. But the willful aristocrat is tough. The proof is in her survival of the revolution that destroyed her family. She desperately wants a fresh start on this ranch that she visited as a child. Things are going well for the Piqon Ranch until Serge Varoff, Sonia's ex-fiancee, follows her from Europe and moves in. He hates American equality and can't tolerate Sonia's growing affection for Sublette ---- a mere servant in Varoff's eyes. Adding to an already explosive situation is neighbor Don Diego Alviso who covets the Piqon's fine horses. He wants them, and he'll do whatever it takes to get them
