Ember had been oppressed her entire life. She just didn't realize it until she got older. She had obeyed without question. She had the picture perfect life to anyone looking from the outside, but behind closed doors, it was the exact opposite.
Something finally happens that sends her over the edge and she runs. She finds herself in small town North Carolina. She just wants to keep to herself, but a certain blonde cowboy and his sister won't let that happen.
Graham hasn't had an easy life. He lost his parents when he was only just an adult. He had to learn to take care of a whole ranch and help raise his sister.
Now a few years later, he owns a successful ranch and his sister is all grown up. Things seem to be going well for him. That is, until he runs into a girl he knows is going to change his life.
