"1875. When Emma Bradshaw's father gets 'Western fever' and moves his family to the utopian town of Greeley, Colorado, she sees no way out of her lonely prison--unless her childhood friend, handsome Randall Turnbull, might perchance fall in love with her. Randall, having moved to Greeley to work for her father, seems the perfect man for her, and she's eager for him to court her. Lucas Rawlings, veterinarian and horse lover, has lived on the Front Range for three years at Sarah Banks's ranch, after stumbling down from the Rockies consumed with grief. Since losing his precious wife and baby in childbirth, he doesn't think his heart can bear ever loving again. But Sarah, a half-Cheyenne with a medicine woman for a grandmother, has a vision showing it's time Lucas married again. He scoffs until he rescues Emma in a sudden hailstorm and their lives become intricately entwined. Emma yearns for the comfort and familiarity of Randall's company, but Lucas's easy confidence and gentle ways snag her heart. Facing a new life beset by grasshoppers, drought, and blizzards is hard enough. But when murderous ranchers try to force Sarah off her land, and her brother takes up dangerous company, the lives of her family and the man she's come to love are threatened. It will take a miracle--and the strength of true love--to come through unscathed in this untamed land."--Back cover.
