Virginia Lake left town more than a decade ago - after a memorable night with a man her parents forbade her to see. Lucas Yellowfly, they said, was a troublemaker. Off-limits. Half-Native American and from the wrong side of town, he wasn't good enough for Dr. and Mrs. Lake. But now...everything's changed. Now Lucas is a successful lawyer in Glory. Practically a pillar of society.
And now Virginia's back, a single mother with a five-year-old son. She's looking for a job - and Lucas finds he needs someone with exactly her qualifications. Because he's always been half in love with the doctor's daughter.
He's finally got the chance to convince her that this man from Glory will make a good husband...and a good father. Her reasons for marrying him might have more to do with need than with love, but things can change. Who knows that better than Lucas Yellowfly?
