Brutally dispossessed during the Highland Clearances, Tam Sutherland comes to the hiring fair at Oban, Scotland, hoping to find a job for the season. But his maimed right hand, inflicted by the same cruel factor responsible for his parents' deaths, means he's one of few men available when a beautiful woman makes her surprising announcement: She's looking not for a hand but a husband, not just for the season but forever.
Annie MacCallum is under threat from a brutal factor also, back at her home farm - one who preys on unmarried women. If she's to protect all those who rely on her, including her beloved animals, she must have a husband, if only in name. Secretly glad when the attractive Tam takes up her proposition, she doesn't realize she's dragging him into a situation that will trigger old demons. Nor does she expect to give him her heart.
