All Roads Lead Back to You
When a saddled but riderless quarter horse turns up on Alice Anderson's stand fast ranch during a harsh Washington blizzard, Alice knows the lost rider's chances for survival are slim. Bracing for the worst, she sets out to find the mare's owner dead or alive.
On the run from immigration authorities, Mexican ranch hand, Domingo Rogue would surely have frozen to death in the blinding storm if not for Alices' determined rescue. Keen to repay her, Domingo pits his "vaquero" skills against the unforgiving weather and brutal work load that is the lot of any rancher. As he works side by side with Alice through the seasons, he finds himself struggling to match the heart and tenacity of his new "patrona."
What begins as mutual respect thaws into an unlikely friendship, despite their cultural differences and misunderstandings. For the first time, Domingo feels he may have found a true home in his adopted country. Then, as hopeful and unexpected as the first crocus in spring, love blossoms between the unlikely pair. But with the Immigration Service closing in and with Domingo's many unexplained disappearances, Alice can't tell what tomorrow will bring. All she knows for sure is that Domingo has rekindled emotions she thought she'd never experience again. Will her fierce loyalty to the rugged cowboy who entered her world by storm cost her everything she has?
