Colorado, 1873. Marty West hopes his good fortune won’t run out. As a half-Indian who passes for white, he keeps his secret hidden in cowboy country. But when he witnesses a grief-stricken widow struggling to feed her children, he puts his own troubles aside and leaps to her rescue. 

Newly-widowed Emeline Mills has few options—and she must find a way to provide food and shelter for her children. Destitute and desperate, she accepts the gallant cowboy’s proposal even though he’s not a Christian. But when her new spouse comes under fire for employing Indians at their ranch, Emeline wonders if she’s made a tragic decision. 

As Marty and Emeline’s marriage of convenience turns into something deeper, the cowboy fears that confiding his secret could destroy his chance at true love.

Will prejudice trample their hearts or can they find faith and acceptance in each other’s arms?
