Sparks fly when a runaway slave paves her own destiny by becoming the most notorious painted lady in the territory and attracting the love and lust of two dangerous rivals.
Traveling west on the Oregon Trail, slave Lucy Bowman dreams of a life of freedom in California, but when her owner dies an untimely death, she is left at the mercy of the wagon master. As fate would have it, an outlaw known as Dangerous Dan comes to her rescue, but his idea of freedom and hers clash mightily.
Lucy doesn't want an owner, she doesn't want a husband, and she most certainly doesn't want to be a poor cowboy's bed-warmer. Parting ways with Dan, she is determined to write her own destiny. With scheming, wiles, and a little unlawful behavior, she manages to buy a brothel and attract the attention of the recently appointed sheriff, Raging Thunder.
Dangerous Dan and Raging Thunder collide as both men compete to save the woman they both see as more ingénue than prostitute. The lawless mining camp of Jimtown might not be big enough for the two men bidding for the attention of the painted lady known as Madam Lucille.
