Kit Masters, born and brought up on an Aspen ranch, left to pursue an acting career in Hollywood but she is a woman with a strong sense of family, loyalty, and integrity and had deep ties to the land where she grew up. After ten years, she returns home to settle her father's estate and realizes she must choose between her career and Tom Bannon, a man she has not seen for ten years, the man who broke her heart by marrying someone else—the man she still loves. Kit has gotten a golden opportunity, the lead role in a movie opposite famous actor-producer-and legendary seducer—John Travis. The movie will be filming in Aspen. She meets Bannon again, and they rediscover their romance, though she is still feeling the pain of his betrayal and he is haunted by the memory of his dead wife--and John Travis has begun to pursue Kit, ardently.
