After Vanessa is assaulted by her step-father, Clayton, the foreman on her family ranch, comforts her and offers to take her to safety. Knowing that Price will only continue to abuse her, nineteen-year-old Vanessa accepts. Vanessa and Clayton marry to protect her reputation, each of them hiding the fact that they have feelings for the other. Despite the dark beginning, this was an enjoyable read. The author dealt with Vanessa in a sympathetic manner, and wrote a realistic recovery. The book was immediately engaging, and easily held my interest with a likeable hero and heroine and an interesting cast of supporting characters.
