Struggling for survival in the unforgiving Rocky Mountains, orphan Caitlyn O'Shaunessy is unprepared for the arrival of blue-eyed stranger Jonathan Clay, a Virginia man seeking solace from a broken heart
Caitlyn O'Shaunessy was a born survivor. Orphaned at a young age, raised by a kindly old trapper, she'd fought hard to bury her demons as she eked out an existence in the unforgiving wilds of the Rocky Mountains. But while she'd faced down harsh elements and hostile Indians, she'd never met anyone like the blue-eyed stranger who stole her heart and forever changed her world.
Jonathan Clay traveled out West to ease the pain of betrayal and heartache he'd left behind at his Virginia home. But when a game of chance landed him a feisty beauty with a sharp tongue, Jonathan was left with more than he bargained for. Caitlyn was the most independent, muleheaded woman on the frontier, and her innocent touch aroused a desire like none he'd ever known.
