Shot and left for dead, Sam
Hixton stumbles into a general store on the Nebraska prairie and collapses into
the arms of Cassie Wilcox.
Cassie’s world is turned
upside down when the handsome stranger drops into her life. Sam is another
complication she doesn’t need: her business is dying and her trouble with the
townspeople is escalating. Yet she’s determined to keep the store open — no
matter what the cost.
As Sam recovers from his
injuries, he hides the truth about his identity and convinces Cassie to let him
work in the store. He’s attracted to her and admires her independent nature but
quickly realizes Cassie’s in way over her head. They fight their growing
attraction, and Cassie questions whether she can trust her fragile heart to a
mysterious stranger. Will he
accept her once he knows about her troubled past?
Cassie resists Sam’s advances
and represses her feelings until one fateful night when they give in to their
fiery passion. Together, they work out a plan to save the store but find their efforts
are thwarted—and their lives endangered—by the locals.
Sam’s secret returns to haunt
him and pulls him away just when Cassie needs him the most. Will he regain her trust when she
learns the truth? Cassie has everything invested in the store—can
she save it and find true love with Sam before it’s too late?
