He has grand plans for the abundant waters flowing into Angel Creek from the mountains. However, Lucas’ ambitions for Angel Creek put him at odds with its striking owner and her phenomenal strength of will. Dee belongs to Angel Creek as much as it belongs to her. Their first meeting reveals a strong unexpected mutual desire that sets them on a journey of discovery and a fierce love as untamable as nature itself.
