Everyone knows Victor Vicario--he is the scarred loner who is on his way to the National Finals Rodeo in Vegas. But no one knows, about the guilt that drives him. And until he achieves his goal, there is no room in his life for attachments. So when Vic is given temporary custody of his young nephew, he is torn. He cannot turn his back on family, but how can he look after a kid when he is traveling the rodeo circuit? Then he runs into feisty barrel racer Tanya McGee and makes her an offer. She helps him with Alex, and he will pay her rodeo expenses. The problem is their little family starts to feel all too real.
