Tess Grady doesn't do playboy cowboys and as far as she's concerned that's exactly what Gage McBride is. Tess wants steady, stable, and secure in a man and Gage seems to be the farthest thing from that.
Gage has been waiting for the right woman, and he's sure Tess is the one. He's not the "cowboy with a woman in every town" that Tess believes he is and he intends to prove it to her.
Tess starts to fall for the sexy cowboy when things go desperately wrong. Harvey Norton, a man from Gage's past is seeking revenge. Not only did Gage help to put Harvey behind bars for embezzling, but Tess, the woman Harvey is attracted to, seems to be falling for Gage.
Gage's life is in danger and soon Tess's is, too. Gage must save Tess while at the same time trying to stay alive.
