Price Venture romanced Vanessa’s mother and she married him on a whim. After all, she really had little choice. She and her two children had no idea how to manage the large ranch, but she didn’t realize how dangerous Price was until it was too late. Price drank excessively and was prone to violence.

One dark night, Price cornered Vanessa in her bedroom. Van fought furiously, clawing at her attacker and shrieking in fear, but her brother Miles was too afraid to help her. Foreman, Clay Proffitt, found Vanessa after the attack and spirited her away before Price could do any more damage.

Vanessa and Clay flee across the country, bound for a homestead in Colorado. Slowly, they get to know each other better and it seems a logical step for them to wed. If Price Venture finds them, carrying Clay’s name will help protect Vanessa from her stepfather’s wrath.

Mustering the forces of his former Civil War regiment, Clay enlists the aid of a shopkeeper and a rancher, who offer their assistance. Merritt’s huge ranch in Colorado seems the perfect haven for the young couple - until Vanessa reveals a terrible secret.

A not-so-real but very admirable honorable hero rescues a young woman in need. Enjoyable romance and western adventure story.
