Laura Jackson knows what it is like to give up her dreams. She has been doing that for most of her life due to her dad’s gambling addiction that started shortly after her mother’s death. She now works as an ER nurse, but her coworkers have told her she is not cut out for the job; she cares too much for each and every patient who enters the ER. She has also been dealing with a loan shark boss, who her father is indebted to, trying to make advances toward her. His advances are unwelcome and have become more forceful. While walking out to her car after work, she is almost kidnapped. If it weren’t for the intervention of a stranger, she fears she would be in big trouble about now. Laura wonders if there is any man out there she can trust.
Colton Blackwell has been asked to look out for Laura by her father. Colton is a former Army Ranger who now works as a rancher while sometimes helping those in desperate need. Laura is one of those people. He saves her from kidnapping and takes her to his ranch for safety until he can figure out who is after her. He thinks she will be safe as no one will know where she is. However, he thinks wrong as another attempt is made to kidnap Laura. Colton thwarts this attempt, but the kidnappers get away. He knows it is just a matter of time before they try again. Before the next attempt, he and Laura get to know one another, and he likes what he learns about her. He fears that she would never give him a chance at romance due to his past.
