Cat Calder is grief stricken when her young fiance is killed in a car accident. Emotionally devastated and vulnerable, Cat's final evening in town - meant to be spent with close college friends - ends instead in the arms of a handsome, gray-eyed stranger. Nine months later, Cat gives birth to a healthy baby boy and raises him in the protective bosom of her powerful family; everything changes the day a lawman - with arresting gray eyes - arrives in Blue Moon, Montana. Logan Echohawk has never forgotten that night or the beautiful stranger, and it only takes one long look at the boy to know that the brief, passionate encounter had created a child. While Cat struggles to come to grips with Logan's appearance, an enemy's long-smouldering thirst for revenge flares to life, threatening Logan, Cat, and their beloved son. Will Logan's training as a lawman be enough to save his family? And even if everyone survives, will Cat have the courage to chance her heart and love again?
