When the stagecoach of proxy bride Skylar Connor Douglas is attacked by Indians in the Black Hills, she is carried away by a warrior who is actually her reluctant husband, Lord Andrew Douglas.

Skylar believes she married the elderly Lord Douglas who died shortly after their wedding. She has come to the Badlands to take control of the gold mine that is her legal inheritance.

Hawk (AKA Andrew Douglas), the son of a Sioux woman and a Scottish laird, loves the painted Dakota hills and has no use for the wife his father secretly foisted upon him.

Trapped in an isolated cabin, Hawk plans revenge on Skylar, except the feisty beauty has some plans of her own. Eventually the couple come to terms with their marriage and one another.
