Successful rancher Dorie Barnett thought if she married her hired hand it would offer protection from the man who had been relentlessly pursuing her, so she offered him a marriage of convenience.
Jonah Crandall thought if he accepted Dorie's proposal, it would put him a better position to find his sister's murderer without tipping off the enemy.
They were both wrong.
The marriage bargain put them in more danger than they could ever imagine. As they faced the challenges together, it was soon apparent that more than their lives would be at risk.
And when all threats had passed and it was time to end the marriage, it was their hearts that were at risk.
