In the kind of rough and tumble life they lead, Raiden knows there is no place for love…
Raiden refuses his connection to Ash Winsor. She's mean. She insults him. And she carries a big gun. He won't have her. He should get away from her, but how? As soon as they can find the man who tied their heartstrings together, they'll go their separate ways. All they have to do is get to H.S.P.C. headquarters building and pay him off. Raiden hopes that once he's free, he'll be able to go back to trekking on the surface of the planet and sending money home to his dad. He should be able to forget all about Ash and her handsome shadow.
Love has kept Stone as Ash Winsor's shadow for two years. He can't bring himself to leave her even though the relationship is painful and going in circles. When he finds out that Ash is now tied to another man, Stone wants nothing more than to see Raiden gone. Together they will both follow King Winsor from train to train. Stone is hoping against hope that the rough and troubled harvester will one day choose him, and Raiden will no longer be at their side.
Lying has become as natural to Ashley Winsor as breathing. Ash had made sure Stone thinks she's a man. She has also made sure Raiden doesn't know how much she needs him. If Ash can just make the trek to the headquarters building, she will be free of the two men who want her more than anything. The only problem is, the closer she gets to her goal, the more she wonders if she wants them gone.
