Thalia Mitchell is returning to her hometown of Shepherd's Pass after her divorce. She is a very serious person, with a very clear plan for her future. That plan does not include Luke Dalton. Her one spontaneous act as a teenager was to try to seduce him, and it failed horribly. Now that Thalia is back in town, she is determined to ignore Luke at all costs.
Luke, however, has different plans. He is determined to pick up where he and Thalia left off all of those years ago. He refused her proposition back then because she was only sixteen, but he has never forgotten about her.
Although Thalia continually tries to avoid Luke, he will not give up. Things are complicated further by the fact that their mothers are at war with each other over the development of their small town. Thalia is forced to seek Luke's help in overcoming the fued, and Luke finally gets his way when he and Thalia become romantically involved, despite Thalia's better judgement. Luke comes to realize that he is in love with Thalia, but she is still unwilling to admit her true feelings for him. She sees him and their relationship as a risk, and serious Thalia does not take risks. But can she really walk away from him as planned, or will her heart lead her to take the ultimate risk?
