After all Skylar Mathews has been through recently, she only wants her son, Cody, to get better. And visiting Montana is supposed to accomplish that. Yet thanks to the unexpected and larger-than-life presence of Marcus Whitefeather, her plan could be in jeopardy. She can't indulge the sparks flaring between them because reuniting with him is not an option. Not with the secret they share. But when Cody doesn't improve, Marcus suggests the unthinkable -- that they reveal the truth. Everything else has failed so maybe this will work. But how can Skylar be sure? With her son's welfare at stake, Marcus has to prove he's the hero she and Cody need him to be.
