When his mom passed, roughneck Travis Cartwright thought he'd lost the only family he and his daughter Charlie had. That is until he discovers an estranged father and siblings living just a few hours away. They might be strangers, but they're blood, and Travis needs to protect Charlie should tragedy strike at his dangerous job.
Dominick Cartwright offers his son more than peace of mind. He gives Travis a new job, a place to live and a side project -- to convince Dominick's stubborn neighbor, Sara Sanders, to sell her ranch. Travis is confident he can smooth talk the plain-Jane teacher into selling quickly, but there's more to Sara than meets the eye. Soon Travis loses sight of his mission...and his heart.
As their relationship grows, they uncover painful family secrets, and Dominick's real motives.
Then, the sparks fly!
