A lost, bedraggled stranger walks up to large animal vet Dr. Joshanne Ryan’s cabin on Carson Hill Ranch in the middle of the night. Romney Jens has been wandering for three days since his car broke down, and Joshanne knew she couldn’t just send him on his way. After his first food and drink in days, the stranger is allowed to spend the night in the barn until someone from the main ranch can come take him to his car.
When Joshanne learns that Romney will just have to sit tight for a few days until help can arrive, what does she do? She puts him to work! With her research into a disease that plagues the herd of Carson Hill on the line, there’s no time for playing games. But the more Joshanne and Romney learn about each other, the more they learn about themselves.
It’s a race against the clock to see if love really does overcome all obstacles, especially when disaster awaits.
