Chase Givens never again expected to see the ragged girl, Minnie, again, after she gave birth to triplets at High Mountain Ranch and promptly disappeared three years ago. Now, single and lonely, he sows his wild oats by holding a horse race through the center of town. Nothing new, but this time, Chase nearly runs down a young woman. Horrified, he runs to help her, intrigued and curious about this vaguely familiar stranger.
After abandoning her triplets, Jessamine (Minnie) Styles spent three years at a French finishing school, growing up and learning to deal with her past. At eighteen, she’s a stronger, well educated young woman planning to open a school of her own not far from High Mountain ranch. The bitter, defiant child is gone. Everything has changed, including her feelings toward her children. When she goes to High Mountain, asking to see them, old emotions re-emerge between her and Chase. Neither knows their lives are about to change forever.
