Kristine is the eldest of three sisters, and she would do anything to keep them safe, but could she do this?
Their mother died many years ago which turned their father to drink and gambling. Now their fortune is gone and soon her sisters must leave their finishing school. What will happen to them? Where will they live? What will they eat? Will they be thrown onto the streets?
When her father tells her what he has done, she feels her heart break. It is preposterous to think that he would sell her to a man just to pay off his gambling debts. But what choice does she have? Keeping her pride she makes a deal with him and sets off to the Wild West to become nothing more than a maid and a wife in name only.
Robert Miller lost his wife and his one true love. Bringing up a daughter in the west is not a job for a rancher. But he gets more than he bargained for when Kristine arrives.
