When Taylor turned fourteen and announced she was gay, James and Sara stood by her. When James and Sara began dating, Taylor hid her love for Sara and moved on with her life.
Now, fourteen years later, Sara and James are about to be married and Taylor is trying to deal with the upcoming wedding by rushing into a new relationship.
As Sara and James begin to face the truth about their relationship, Sara begins to realize who her love interest really is.
Will Sara and Taylor hide their feelings for each other to protect their friendship or will they realize they can’t run from love?
November, 2007: Carter weaves an interesting subplot into the story, centered on a ranch owned by two older lesbians, life partners and wonderful role models for the younger women in the story. A tale of the Old West involving the ranch has twists and turns, with rumors of buried treasure and people who are quite different from conventional history. In the end, it falls to Sara to find a way to protect the women and their land from the exploits of gold-diggers while juggling the turmoil in her own life.
