Rosie’s Diner sits in the shadows of the Grand Teton Mountain range, in the small town center of Saddle Creek, Wyoming. It’s where horse rancher Chase Montgomery first lays eyes on a new waitress’s bruised and swollen face, and beautiful green eyes; his first instinct is to kiss the bruises away.
Lauren McCray flees Michigan and heads west to escape another beating from her ex-boyfriend, Clint Jackson. When she sees him looking inside her car outside the diner where she works, she runs again. This time, jumping into the bed of a nearby pickup truck hauling a horse trailer.
Chase’s life is enriched when he pulls back the tarp in the bed of his pick-up and finds the green-eyed beauty from the diner. Lauren is running from something or someone, and Chase is compelled to protect her, but can he?
