At the edge of her father's property, Lyse Shelby finds Buck Warren, wounded, and agrees to secretly nurse him back to heath, if he takes her with him when he goes.
Buck is chasing the man who killed his best friend. He has no time for a scrawny damsel in distress, or for love.
That's fine with Lyse. All she needs is a little help escaping her abusive father so she can make a life of her own.
But as Buck seeks revenge upon a murderer, Lyse makes an unexpected discovery: her new life isn't as attractive as she'd hoped without the man she loves.
