Handsome widower Clay Porter is sick of everyone trying to match him up. He doesn’t want marriage and family—not anymore.

When he is hired to transport a snobbish beauty to the far-distant Croft Ranch, he realizes she is completely in the dark about her fiancé’s character. Is Clay willing to risk his own dreams—and even his life—to persuade stubborn Madeline that she's making a mistake?
