Libby Corbett is a high-powered attorney and she is now facing the case of her life. Her father David has been charged with contaminating the water at the Hopechest ranch. Libby knows that her dad is innocent, but she has a long way to go to prove it. It seems that Libby is alone in her fight until Rafe James enters the picture.
Rafe's brother River was in the first Colton series book (Beloved Wolf) and his sister Cheyenne was in yet another book (Wed to the Witness). Rafe lives on the Crooked Arrow Indian Reservation and is a private investigator. Rafe knows that David is a good man who has done many good things for the people living on the reservation. Rafe will do whatever he can to help Libby prove that her father is innocent. Rafe realizes that this case is more dangerous than he first thought. Rafe knows that he will protect Libby at all costs, but what he did not count on were his feelings for her. Rafe has had a very troubled childhood and does not feel that he can have a future with Libby. Unfortunately, it may take him almost losing Libby before he realizes what he is throwing away.
