Now how has it come to this, you will love reading this wonderful romance that starts when Meredith is a child in school, well starts for her anyway. She is the little girl the boys pick on and they grabbed her lunchpail and threw it onto Archer land and dared her to go get it...boys should never dare a girl. She went and met one of the big bad Archer men, only he was just a kid himself a little older then her, he carried her home when she met a trap that had been set on property too that day and injured her ankle. Mere dreams of this young man as she matures into a young woman.

And...years later she again dares to step on Archer land when she feels the need to warn them.. "Someone wants to burn their barn so they will sell their property", can she help as he had helped her long ago. She feels she must take that chance.

Travis Archer and his brothers didnt leave their land-a promise made long ago to his father to take care of his brothers and never leave the land. Now He must figure out why this girl has came and if she is telling the truth, She wants to help them and gets hurt when a stubborn mule kicks out when she gets too close and she is injured,making a stay on Archer land imperative....her family doesn't feel the same way.
