Adam Kindrick has struggled all his life to find the place he belongs. It isn’t with his mother’s people, they’ve made that clear. Just as his father’s have never fully accepted him, either. But, Patrick Bailey took him in, even if only as another ranch hand. Now, war is looming between ranchers and homesteaders. When he finds a burned out cabin and two dead farmers, he’s torn between what he wants and what’s right.
Leah Kline has always lived the pampered life of a cattle baron’s daughter. And it’s smothering her. She grabs as much freedom as she can, and it brings her to find Adam on her father’s land. As well as a burned out cabin that had belonged to friends. She wants to find the truth as much as Adam but is afraid it could cost her everything she cares about.
Adam never expects to fall for his enemy’s daughter or come to care so much for the son the murdered homesteaders left behind. When the war is brought closer to home, he’ll do whatever it takes to keep those he loves, and the home he may have finally found, safe.
No matter what it costs him.
