As the daughter of a high class family in South Carolina, the worst thing Callie has to worry about is surviving a ball or other social gathering without making a fool of herself. But when tragedy strikes in the fall of 1875, Callie decides to follow her best friend to Colorado to start a new life.
James has had enough with people stealing his life's work, and relocating to Denver is the perfect way to start over. Meeting Callie at the boarding house next door is just the icing on the cake.
When James invites Callie to help him with a new invention, sparks fly between them. But when their past comes back to haunt them, they must decide if they'll fight for each other, or if their former lives are too much to handle.
