Nila—orphaned by a tornado, wary, with boundaries she doesn't want crossed with impunity, meets cowboy, Cody Gibson, who has repeatedly ridden off into the sunset risking all, as a third tour Marine Sargent, his shooting skills played out on a faraway battlefield. A man hard to rope and even then, who could break her heart. But for not knowing if or when she'd ever see him again and of all the men who'd made a pass at her, he was the one she wished who would.
Cody—a sharpshooter trained not to make a wrong move and chase away what he wants emboldened enough to edge closer before he pulls the trigger, finds Nila can take his mind off the mundane and the unspeakable and on to her faster than you can shout, "Incoming artillery!"
Each, war-torn in their own way, having been sent to the very gates of hell, struggles to prevail, and prove love offers them a future.
