Being a veterinarian in the late 1800's is difficult
enough, but for Jillian Matthews it's impossible. Not
allowed in the vet schools, she trained at her father's
side until she had the skills needed to move west. Jillian
accepts an advertisement for a position in Montana, using
only her initials which happen to be same as her father's.
Convinced that in the untamed west, her skills will be
valued and appreciated, regardless of her gender, she's
quickly proved wrong.
Wade Parker is sure the pretty redhead claiming to be
the vet he sent for is one of his ranch hands' practical
jokes but the fiery woman very quickly puts him in his
place. His impression, however, turns south when the animal
she operated on later dies. With a ranch on the verge of
bankruptcy, losing an animal was the last thing he could
afford and he can't help thinking the old vet, the male
doctor, wouldn't have let his animal die.
With Wade's initial reaction guiding them, the town is
quick to want Jillian out. But the more Wade gets to know
Jillian, the more he sees her grit and compassion, the
harder he falls for her. When Wade realizes he was too
hasty in his judgment and urges the town to give Jillian
another chance, he makes more than few enemies. Enemies
that would do almost anything to get her out, and to make
sure Wade doesn't take her side again.
Soon threats turn to violence and both Wade and Jillian
must make a stand. The problem is, at what cost?
