Book III of the Behind the Ranges series.

A valley where gold gleams in every creek becomes the arena for a thrilling encounter between East and West. Silas Dewitt, newly arrived in an Idaho gold camp, saves two Chinese boys from a mob of drunken miners. But one of them turns out to an independent, stubborn, lovely woman who decides her role is to protect him.

Soomey, shaped by poverty and sexual slavery, sees Silas as her means to freedom and independence until she falls in love with him. Knowing that she is assisting in her own heartbreak, she guards his back as he searches for a cache of gold nuggets. A vicious killer stalks them both, hating Soomey for her race, Silas for his wealth. Silas faces him in a desperate knife battle, but is too late to save Soomey from painful torture. Scarred in body and soul, Soomey tries to leave him. Can Silas hold her with passion, tenderness,and a promise of eternal love?
