Can the raven of darkness turn into the white dove of peace?

At sixteen, Vivien Clinton lives in fear of her abusive uncle who is set on making sure she doesn’t follow in her mother's footsteps. Gabe Johnson is a stranger in town, injured and on the run from a posse. A chance meeting changes their lives forever.

At nineteen, Viv finds herself alone following the death of her uncle. She grasps the opportunity for a new beginning on her terms. Refusing marriage to a violent man is only the first step. To gain the freedom of her heart, Viv must confront her fears and prejudices, expose a past she never imagined, and prevent a climactic confrontation between brothers.
