When she is put in charge of the new mounted division, dissension in the ranks seems to guarantee the program's failure.

Cal's attraction to Rachel grows, but both their future together and the future of the mounted unit are uncertain, plagued by "accidents" and threats.

As Rachel and Cal battle a corrupt politician's greed in the face of mounting danger, can their love prevail?
