As the daughter of the founder and leader of The Ridge, one of the most successful settlements since the collapse which brought down the civilized world, twenty-one-year-old Olivia VanWyck is used to living by her own set of rules. But when fever strikes her community while she is away on an unauthorized scouting expedition, Olivia ends up trapped outside the walls of The Ridge. With nowhere else to go, she finds herself under the care and protection of a traveling trader by the name of Token.
As Olivia and Token seek out shelter in this harsh world, the feisty young woman soon learns that he will tolerate no defiance during their journey and that disobedience will earn her a sound spanking. But as her feelings for Token grow and evolve from grudging respect to romance, she wonders if he could ever settle down in a place like The Ridge, and even if he did, would she be happy as the wife of a rough, firm-handed explorer?
