This is the story of a young man and woman who unexpectantly
end up falling in love.
Victoria Waverly was a noble daughter of the war-ruined South, sold in marriage to a ruthless Western rancher by the name of Frank McLain.
Jake Roper was one of Frank McLain's hired gunman.
Honor and pride were the only things that could help Victoria endure her painful role as wife in name alone. But honor could not satiate her forbidden desire for the hired gunman Jake.
His narrow gaze was hard as ice, but the tender emotions he could not hide promised to unveil to Victoria the glorious mysteries of love. Not only does he want to kill McLain and take back the valley that was rightfully his, but now he wants McLain's wife too.
Ancient wrongs and blazing passions bind together the proud, aristocratic beauty and the lean, powerful cowboy. In a bloody Western land war they will fight for Jake's birthright...and sieze at last the love that is their hope, their dreams, their destiny!
