It's the year 1866—the Civil War is over and slavery has ended…
Yet life for 18-year-old Gracie Shaw takes an unexpected turn when she is "encouraged" to marry a man sight unseen. To ensure the financial stability of her family, she agrees—until a handsome stranger captures her attention and makes going through with the marriage almost impossible.
Determined to start a new life far from his old one, former Confederate soldier Logan Finley boards a train headed west—to lawless territory. When he is entrusted with the duty to escort the loveliest woman he's ever met, he realizes he wants more than just a fresh start. He wants her.
While Gracie wrestles with her desires, she soon learns that there is more to Mr. Logan Finley than she could have ever imagined. Will she find the grace within to forgive their past—or will her anger and pain blind her to true love?
