Stormy Merrill‚ having outdistanced the pursuit caused by the daring robbery he had committed in the town of Colville‚ pauses on a ridge above Marais Valley. The two large ranches that comprise all the land in Marais Valley are rich and will be inherited by two single women — daughters — or their husbands. Stormy could gain control of one‚ within the law‚ by marrying Geraldine Proctor of the MVP Ranch. But Merrill also wants possession of the Big B Ranch that will be inherited by Toni Buttrick. Step by devious step in an atmosphere of passion‚ intrigue‚ love‚ and hate, Stormy Merrill’s grand scheme for incredible personal enrichment is about to be played out in Marais Valley.
