After Dr. Becca Hart lost her assistant English professor position at Vassar, the only vacancy was at Oklahoma State University. She and her sibling Emma come to Stillwater for an interview. At a rodeo Emma meets divorced US Army Sergeant Tucker Jenkins while Emma enjoys the company of Jace Mills (see One Night With A Cowboy).

Ten months later, graphic designer Emma travels from New York to attend Becca’s wedding though angry with Jace who never contacted her after their super tryst. At the nuptials she meets Tucker’s ROTC superior officer LTC Logan Hunt and sees Jace again. After a tryst, she returns to the Big Apple at the same time Logan learns his father suffered a stroke. Needing her sister as she deals with a crisis, Emma goes back to Oklahoma where she and Logan see each and fall in love, but she owes him one truth that the New Yorker believes will end their relationship.

The second Oklahoma Nights is a wonderful contemporary due to fortyish Logan who lives the Army’s values (LDRSHIP). Emma’s behavior comes across as childish at times especially her anger with Jace over his assumption they shared a one night stand. Still this Big Apple-Sooner romance is a fun tale as love battles insecurity.
