Overview

Sarah Woodward is a mother with a mission. Two years after her husband is killed in a plane crash, Sarah decides to move her kids away from their fast paced life in suburban Atlanta to small town Hailey, Colorado. Her young sons aren’t happy to leave their friends, but Sarah feels the family needs a fresh start with fewer complications.
Sarah doesn’t know a Colorado Senator has earmarked her ranch for purchase and he’ll do anything to get it. Unwilling to sell, she dismisses his continued offers as an annoyance and moves ahead by improving the land with the help of a sexy stranger, A.J. Dodge, unwittingly sent her way by the very senator who needs her land.
A.J. Dodge is a man with a past. Twenty years ago, at the tender age of eighteen, Dodge was accused of bedding and impregnating one of Hailey’s most innocent girls. His family believed her lies and, under pressure to marry her, Dodge panicked and left town before he was forced into wedlock. The town blamed him for the girl’s suicide and he spent twenty years away from home, haunted by the senseless loss.
Dodge has recently returned to his hometown to begin again. The close-knit, traditional townspeople are not ready to forgive or forget the reason he left twenty years ago and he’s faced with their condemnation every day. Dodge is ready to set down roots and make things right with his family and whatever anyone else thinks he doesn’t give a damn.
Until his old friend Tommy Thornton asks a favor, a favor he can’t refuse, and Dodge becomes involved with the beautiful widow Sarah Woodward. She’s alone with her young sons on a dilapidated ranch she’s determined to get up and running, with or without his help. Dodge, busy working his own cattle on leased land, agrees to help her set up her cattle ranch. The more time they spend together, the more he's drawn to her looks, her sharp tongue and mind, and her unwavering support of him despite the rumors of his sordid past.
Senator Ben Burwick is desperate for the Woodward ranch. He’s in bed with a land developer with shady connections, and he’s made promises he may not be able to deliver. Feeling the squeeze to produce the Woodward land, Senator Burwick is willing to risk anything to convince Sarah Woodward to sell. Unbeknownst to Sarah, the senator arranges to have her hired man quit and, in an act of spite, forces the abrupt end to Dodge’s newly negotiated lease in Hailey, leaving him scrambling to find land for his cattle. When every door closes in Dodge’s face, he turns to Sarah for help, and she agrees to let him lease her land.
Sarah’s sons begin working the ranch with Dodge and soon come to respect him. When Dodge discovers a cut wire on Sarah's newly installed fence, he’s convinced his past has come back to haunt him and feels guilty for drawing Sarah and her sons into his problems. He ramps up his protectiveness of Sarah and the ranch. When they both sense danger in the night, they seek out the source and find themselves safe but unable to keep their desire in check. But Dodge won’t destroy another woman he cares for and stays away as long as he can. When avoidance becomes impossible, Sarah challenges Dodge to face their feelings and passion ignites.
Dodge and Sarah piece together Senator Burwick’s involvement with a shady land developer. They know to expect more trouble from Burwick, but are unable to ascertain what or when, and begin a hyper-vigilant watch over the ranch. Sarah sends her sons to her in-laws for an extended visit and she and Dodge face the danger they face on the ranch and in their hearts head on.
