Kane Hawthorne has no ties, nothing to anchor him, which is essential in his line of work. Except for a truck and a few horses, the bounty hunter has never found anything worth claiming. But that's before he lays eyes on the person he has been hired to find. Elizabeth Lawson, the wife of a shrewd bank president is missing-and her husband wants her back. But now that Kane has her in his sight, he doesn't think he can deliver on his promise, because the woman he is supposed to return to Boise has stolen his heart.
After three desperate and lonely months in hiding, Elizabeth Lawson isn't sure what to make of the man who offers to trade his skills fixing up her rundown ranch in exchange for room and board. But she finds she can't say no to the dark and handsome Kane-despite the inherent risk of taking in a stranger. Elizabeth is immediately and intensely drawn to the Native American journeyman, but the secrets each of them harbors could be their undoing.
