Far Hills Ranch has bound together the Susland family for nearly a century and a half. For just as long, there’s been a legend that the ranch and its family are cursed. Now, says the legend, the current generation is the last with a chance to break the curse.

A stranger rescues her, then disappears when she needs him most... Until he knocks on her door, years later and half a world away...

On assignment in distant Santa Estella, hardheaded journalist Kendra Jenner finds herself in the middle of a vicious hurricane . . . and unexpectedly in the arms of a stranger who speaks virtually no English. Fear leads to passion that months later leads to a baby, which Kendra fully expects to raise on her own, since her search for the father is a fruitless one.

Three years later, "Paulo" shows up at her Wyoming home, speaking perfect English and identifying himself as Daniel Delligati. He says he's come for his son -- and for her.
