Millie Powell quit medical college just weeks before graduation. With a plan to save her family farm, Millie stow away on a wagon train to get to Nebraska Territory, so she could marry Matt Hudson. Marrying Matt would secure her family farm. That is until she met Joe Modoc, a half-breed Indian scout for the wagon train. Even though they clashed mightily, Joe was determined to muck up her plans. Captured by Indians, Joe had to rescue Millie, but there was only one way to save her. He'd have to marry Millie himself. Being a breed, Joe told Millie she could go on with her plans, but how could she when he took his vows so seriously? She'd given up medicine for her family, but could she give up her heart?
