Idealistic and rebellious Victoria Fortune defied her legacy in favor of a nursing assignment on the tiny island nation of Santo Bonisto. When the nation erupts in rebellion, mercenary Quinn McCoy is hired to get Victoria safely back to Texas. It's a dangerous adventure that nearly costs both Victoria and Quinn their lives. The few days they spend trapped together become a lifetime, and passion becomes a lifeline.
But things change when they get back to the real world. Quinn, a loner and a tough guy, is convinced he has no place in the privileged world of the Texas Fortunes. He walks away, leaving a heartbroken Victoria with no choice but to live up to the name of her strong, proud family. She vows to go after the man she loves...because nothing stands between a Fortune and her heart.
