This story follows the life and romance of EMILEE EVANS, and her best friend, SALLY WYATT, who meet a well-known horse whisperer, DYLAN MURPHY, at an equine clinic one weekend in Sundance, Wyoming. That in turn leads them on a ride they will not soon forget, with Emilee's loyal companion, Juniper, by her side. Meeting Dylan brings her back into the world of horses that she had given up years ago, after an emotional falling out with her father. Dylan happens upon an injured wild Mustang, and after bringing it home, Dylan mentors and coaches Emilee along, as they work together to enter a fierce competition. A romance soon blossoms between Dylan and Emilee, which proves to be fate. After wandering off the road, looking for work and a bunk, Shane proves to be a challenge and an ongoing problem for Dylan and Emilee. Dylan, with his trustworthy foreman Cody, and his two hands, end up fighting for the ranch left to Dylan and his estranged brother, years before. Meanwhile, a family secret the two brothers bear threatens to get in the way of the couple's newfound happiness. Some messy predicaments prove to be a challenge along the way, for both Dylan and Emilee, trying to keep the beloved ranch and their relationship intact. Finally, combining their fortitude and strengths, and a surprisingly generous gift from her father, they find a life of rewards and peace in the wild high country of Wyoming.
