Virginia City gossip and meddling Aunt Lil combine with unexpected attention from another Cartwright to complicate Laura Dayton's already fragile romance with Adam, especially when his preoccupation with Ponderosa business appears to be hiding an unwillingness to marry her.


Laura Dayton´s Aunt Lil comes to visit, determined to get the hesitant Adam to propose to her favorite niece. Her scheme is to make Adam jealous by using his cousin Will as a rival for her affections. The plan goes awry when actual romantic sparks begin to fly between Laura and Will.
