Elke von Braun arrives in 1846 Texas with nothing but an indomitable will to survive. All alone in a harsh frontier, she isn't about to let hardship break her spirit...even if it means journeying across untamed lands in search of her future. Then Elke meets Patrick Pride, the richest rancher in Fredericksburg, and knows she's found it. And when the sparks begin to fly between a man and a woman as proud, willful and irresistibly attracted as Patrick and Elke
are, love can't be far behind.
