1880s Wyoming territory --
As strong as the ranch she runs, widow Rachel Terhune has one dream—to fulfill the legacy she inherited from her father. Hiring Nick Dusaq has nothing to do with the fierce pull between them and everything to do with saving her land.
The solitary cowboy recognizes a kindred heart scarred by cruelty. He would ride away – he should ride away – if only her ranch didn’t need him so damned badly. Her ranch—not the widow woman like none he’s encountered before—is the only need he’ll let himself consider.
Passion as powerful as the harsh beauty of the land around them bonds Rachel, the widow woman devoting every bit of her strength and courage to holding onto her Wyoming Territory ranch, and Nick, the loner cowhand with dreams of his own.
Yes, they have passion. But does it hold the promise of healing and love or the destruction of dreams?
