At the hands of her abusive husband, Gabriella almost loses her life. She has just enough energy left to run. When she runs away, she takes his son, Nicky,
with her. She is rescued by a handsome man, Taylor Boudreaux, who controls over three thousand acres of farmland in rural Louisiana. The Boudreaux family
are so caring. They take her and Nicky in until she is well enough to leave. However, Taylor Boudreaux decides she should stay. He makes her an offer: one
year of marriage and an heir for enough money for Gabriella and Nicky to go anywhere they desire. Will she take his offer? Can she ever trust a man again?
