Accompanying her new found friend down the Snake River, Laila settles into a neighboring mining town named Venture. There life is anything but boring. She is faced with the hardships of frontier life, guardianship of an abandoned child, and a reluctant attraction to Ash Corbett, the owner of Ruby Gold, who is currently engaged to a beautiful socialite.
Determined to ignore her heart, and make her own way, Laila ministers to a town grateful for her nursing skills. But Ash finds himself drawn to Laila as well, and battles his conflicting emotions and questions his future.
