This is a 244,006 word complete sorghum series novel created by joining its already published parts titled "Love's Lone Ranger," "Love in the Hornet's Nest," "Love and the Wheels of Redemption," "Love in the Crisis Mode" and "Love in the Lydia Devereaux College." English teacher Cynthia has a crush on Sorghum High football coach Rudy who finds her repulsive. Cynthia backs off from her crush but never gives up trying to gain favor with Rudy even when he falls for cute, charming cheerleader Kara, daughter of Sorghum Principal Horace Dowd. Rudy proposes to Kara in her English class while it's in session. At a party before the wedding, Rudy's quarterback Don tussles amorously with Kara who immediately believes she is pregnant. In conflict with Principal Dowd, Rudy whisks Kara off to a Justice of the Peace where they are married. On the wedding night, Kara fakes falling asleep at the crucial moment to justify annulment later so she can marry Don. Eventually, Don marries Kara and Rudy marries cheerleader Connie. Cynthia undergoes a makeover led by a personal trainer who builds her into a professional wrestler who consistently defeats male professional wrestlers. After building great wealth and fame as a wrestler, Cynthia feels empowered enough to relaunch her romantic interests in Rudy by offering Rudy's wife Connie a great deal of money to divorce her husband. Connie rejects this offer and goes to war against Cynthia, eventually exposing her as a rigged-match wrestler wearing a theatrical muscle suit to make her look intimidating. Rudy consoles the defeated Cynthia by assuming Rudy's long neglected role of Love's Lone Ranger to skillfully nurse her into seeing great merit in her long-term driver. Violent death shatters the whimsical, laugh-littered plot at a totally unexpected point.
