Her grandfather wants her to move home, and Molly thinks she just might. His ranch will be a good place for her sons to grow up, a place to escape big-city influence. When she learns from a stranger named Sam Dakota that her grandfather is ill -- possibly dying -- Molly packs up the kids and makes the long drive to Sweetgrass, Montana. Once she arrives, she immediately has questions about Sam Dakota. Why is he working on her grandfather's ranch? Why doesn't the sheriff trust him? Just who is he? Despite everything, Molly can't deny her attraction to Sam -- until her ailing grandfather tries to push them into marriage.
