Julia Larson doesn't like Wolf McCloud. He may be the best man her father ever hired, but he's dangerous. With her sister Josette around, Julia knows it's only a matter of time before there's another baby on the way. Josette has already had one baby out of wedlock-- a baby that Julia cares for as if it were her own. Josette is irresponsible and selfish, but the men seem to like her. Since her father refuses to acknowledge that Josette is becoming a tramp, it is up to Julia to make sure that Wolf McCloud stays away from her sister. Wolf doesn't wait for Amos Larson to fire him, he leaves on his own. But when he receives a note a short time later from the old man asking to meet him, he's puzzled. Then Amos gives him a proposition. He knows he is dying and offers Wolf a piece of land in exchange for being Julia's foreman. Wolf is a half-breed, abandoned at birth by a mother he has been searching for. The chance to own land is an offer he cannot refuse. But Amos doesn't tell him all his plans. Amos dies mysteriously and Julia is left alone to deal with it. Josette has run off with a man, leaving Julia to take care of her baby. Then Wolf shows up, offering to work for free. She doesn't know what his intentions are-- especially since Josette is gone, but she can't refuse free help. Then she reads her father's will and finds out that in order to keep the ranch, she has to marry Wolf. How can she marry a man she hardly knows who likes her sister better anyway? Julia is distraught, but determined to keep her ranch. A marriage in name only is what Wolf and Julia agree to. But the feelings between them spark a passion that refuses to go away. Julia, always living in Josette's shadow, starts to feel beautiful because of Wolf. And Wolf, who has never known kindness and love, finds in Julia everything he ever wanted. As they get to know each other, they become closer. But their new found happiness is threatened when someone starts sabotaging the ranch, and long held secrets are revealed.
