Anne was raised in England and back east. Her father, an attorney/judge takes her out west to the Nevada territory to visit with his old friend Thomas Stuart and his family on their ranch. Albert is Thomas Stuart's oldest son. As that he is in charge of making sure his father's friends children are entertained during their visit.
When Albert and Anne meet it is like two worlds collided. The two fall deeply in love. Both are headstrong, making the match anything but dull. Albert has finally met his match.
However, unknown to anyone, Anne's father has a secret. He's in Nevada territory for more than the landscape.
