Texas Ranger Caleb Graham has been ordered to force the local blacksmith off of a government-seized property. Little does he know, the blacksmith is the woman he will inevitably fall head over spurs in love with. Aurora “Rory” Foster is widowed and has lost her parents thanks to the very same ranger she finds highly attractive. But when Rory gets hurt, the duo must move on to another ranch for assistance. When they meet Caleb’s long-lost brother Benjy and discover he’s on the run from a murderous man, the trio is forced to travel together. Caleb and Rory do everything they can to save Benjy as they’re hunted, but the most difficult part, besides fighting for their lives, is masking their love for each other and struggling to find happiness once and for all.
