When adventurer, Eben St. Claire, discovers a dying man in the wilderness, they strike a bargain: a handsome reward in exchange for his cooperation. All that’s required is for him to provide protection to the man’s daughter. Only Eben soon learns that his newly acquired responsibility is not the dutiful child he’s been led to believe, but a headstrong beauty as untamed as the land Eben calls home.
