When he is stranded outside Rockwood Springs, he encounters Rebecca Caldwell, whose family owns the local livery. Still healing from a broken past, Jake resists the strong attraction he feels for the prairie darling.
Rebecca has been too busy taking care of her family to think about love and marriage. At least that’s what she tells herself, but deep down, she knows she is getting to the age she has to make a choice whether or not to pursue love.
When Jake enters her life, she wonders if she is finally ready to do just that. Sparks fly as they get to know each other over the course of a weekend during the town’s anniversary celebration.
But once Jake can travel again, he must continue his search for the brothers. Shortly after leaving, he realizes the robbers are on their way to Rockwood Springs.
Will Jake be able to get back to Rebecca and the town in time to save the people he has grown to care for? And when it’s time for Jake to return to his life in Abilene, will he decide new love is worth fighting for?
