When James Laurie came home from the SEAL's, the last thing he expected was to find his longtime mentor, the man he considered more of a father than his own, on his death bed. He'd been told over the years, time and time again, that the Ranch where the man helped raise him from a boy to the man he'd become, would be his one day. With the reading of the Will, the man had kept his word, and left everything to James.
James Laurie was used to life being hard, so he never assumed anything would come easy. When the old man's estranged kids decided to contest the Will, James knew he should've saw it coming, but he didn't.
Evelyn Pierce was struggling to find her place in the world. The daughter of high-powered attorney's in New York, she only knew, that wasn't what she wanted.

Corruption and deceit in the judicial system would rattle her core, causing her to rethink her career path. The man she represented, James Laurie, would clench her heart with an iron fist, causing her to question her future.
