Wichita Ranger Nathan Johnson was shot by the notorious Bruce Cobb and left for dead. Now the Cache Police Department's top priority is capturing Cobb and bringing justice to the injured ranger.
With no viable leads, Sheriff Stockton turns to Lee Rogers, who offers to investigate the beautiful Laura Brooks, whose Native American father, Old Wil, knows the Wichita Mountains inside and out. But Lee gets more than he bargained for in the fiery father and daughter. Soon, his attachment to the pair almost surpasses his love for the Wichitas and one of his favorite mountains, Sunset Peak. Almost.
Wil and Laura fall suspect because of their constant presence in the mountains. Lee must decide whether to come clean to the girl he's falling for or keep his secret and possibly realize his dream of remaining in Oklahoma, the land he loves, because he can't have both.
When Cobb is spotted in the mountains, the search resumes in full force. The mountains are soon filled with chaos, bloodshed, and secrets only Laura and Wil know.
Will Cobb be caught and justice brought to Ranger Johnson? Can Laura trust Lee with the family secret of Sunset Peak?
