Annabelle finds herself on the run. Her father wants her to marry a man she doesn’t love, as though she were a piece of property meant to be traded in the name of business.
Owen, a cowboy, discovers her all alone and takes her with him. She can see the gentility and nobility hiding beneath his rough exterior, can see the hurt behind his eyes.
Annabelle wants to help him, to save him like he saved her.
