Renee Winfield returns to southern Arizona where she spent her happiest years as a child with the Camerons before being whisked away to another state. She runs into her childhood crush, Dan Cooper, who's now the county sheriff.
Dan rescues Renee from a nightmare situation, which was only getting worse by the minute. Jerry, her abusive ex-boyfriend and financial manager, has been using her money to buy shipments of illegal drugs, but no one can prove it.
And Jerry isn't ready to let go…of Renee's money. Unknowingly she signed a paper that makes him her sole beneficiary. She's worth more to him dead than alive. Dan's love and protection, and Renee's will to live, might not be enough.
