Kate was raised in sophistication in high society on fifth avenue in New York in the 1880s. Then her father died and everything changed. She had to move across the country to the wilds of California to live with her cousins. That's where she caught the eye of Everett King, a hardened cattle rancher. He worked hard and didn't have time for a woman, until he set eyes on Kate. They were two people from different backgrounds who were coming to terms with their feelings for one another. Only there was a problem. Kate was beautiful and Everett wasn't the only man who noticed.
