After getting an unexpected new ranch, he spends his days with only ex-gunslinger and a runaway boy for company. When an unexpected injury lays him out, Doctor Alexandra Brighton arrives to treat him. Too bad she was his long lost love he’d long since given up on or he might be tempted to fall for her again.
