Megan Shannon is no stranger to struggle. Having lost everything and everyone she ever held dear, she set out from her beloved Ireland to seek a new life in America. When her thirst for new life lands her in the untamed frontier of Whiskey River, she finds that a free spirit has no merit in her new husband's home. Emboldened by her desire to be her own woman, Megan clashes against the powerful men who would see her demure and silent.
For Dallas King, Whiskey River is not a safe haven for the bold and the brave, but rather a chance to rise as a powerful man of society.

In the pursuit of his narrow dream, Dallas finds himself at odds with the beautiful woman he has called to the frontier to be his wife.
An epic battle ensues between what one wants and what one expects. Will Megan and Dallas come to terms with their troubled pasts in pursuit of a perfect future? Or does Whiskey River have something entirely different in store for them?
