Three lovely women are caught up in Roak Garfield's life. There is Hannah Furniss, daughter of the wealthiest rancher in all Texas; with her shining blue eyes and soft blonde hair, she is a vision -- a woman to love. There is black-haired Belen, the exquisite Mexican girl with eyes like nightsmoke, whose pride is powerless before the longing which Roak arouses in her. And Gwendolyn Heindrichs, once a reticent sweet school-teacher, who in her shame turns to depravity and despair.
There are men too, who have cause to challenge Roak Garfield; Bart Nevis, the broad-shouldered range boss, who has worshipped Hannah Furniss since they were children; Ramon Benevides, Belen's fiery brother who swears a bloody vengeance, and Fritz Heindrichs, who because of a long-past tragic error appoints himself Roak's cruel and relentless guardian angel.
