After her last relationship ends in disaster, travel nurse Sarah Drexel swears off men and takes a job in the Navajo Nation, believing it far enough away from civilization for anyone to recognize her.
But that's before environmental protection specialist Benny Turner walks into her clinic in need of stitches and a tetanus shot. He used to be her best friend in college until the night she told him her deepest darkest secrets and disappeared.
But Sarah's not the only one with secrets.
For Benny, being the son of a Navajo woman and a non-Navajo man means straddling two worlds. It means never quite belonging to either one without having to prove himself constantly.
And just when he decides to settle down in the reservation for good, he runs into the only woman he's always wanted but always told himself he could never have.
Duty or love? Can one live without the other?
