Sheriff Roan Benedict comes from a family of hardheaded men who have a habit of rescuing, and falling for, equally hardheaded women. And sure enough, he's falling for a woman he just shot. This mysterious stranger just helped rob a convenience store. But that doesn't explain the bruises on her jaw and rope burns on her wrist. Though intrigued, Roan is suspicious of her claim that she doesn't remember what happened. Two things are clear to Roan. One: She's lying. Two: Someone is trying to kill her.
