Sam was a bounty hunter with a personal vendetta against Trace Arden's brother for killing her family. She caught him then got bitten by a rattle snake. Trace saved her life then changed her life.

All the changes came through the love of a good man with a tough choice to make. He had to choise between family and honor. He had to decide if he could really shoot his own brother for sleeping with his wife while he was away. He had to choose if he could convince Samamtha that he really had gotten over his dead wife ahd that he really did love her. He had to show the little tomboy that she was really a beautiful butterfly hidden on the inside of a hurt little girl. He had to be a MAN in the truest sense of the word.
