Greg Sloan leads a simple life.
Working in Lamberts store in Belmont, Arizona, he plans to marry his boss’s daughter, Fran.
Deep down though, he knows he’s not cut out for the life of a mere store-keeper.
So when trouble begins to brew in Long Valley – where his parents and brother run the Box S ranch – he puts his job on holder and rushes to defend his family instead.
An old family feud has been reignited between the Sloans and their neighbours, Hank Podd and his three brutish sons, Jake, Butch, and Bully.
With tensions flaring and war on the horizon, there couldn’t be a worse time for Podd’s daughter Dixie and Greg’s brother Todd to fall in love.
Hank Podd is fiercely protective of his only daughter and will fight any man who tries to win her heart – especially if that man is a Sloan.
It falls to Greg to protect his brother and settle the feud that threatens to spill blood.
But his worries don’t end there – it becomes clear that someone else is willing to stir up even more trouble in Long Valley.
Can the families reconcile long enough to put an end to the danger and war that is beginning to engulf the county?
