Julie Mortoff is the daughter of a man who has blocked his heart off from everyone. Even her. Her father runs a farm that is worked by the workers hired. Some are paid workers or convicts working through their sentence. Some are there for life, others a few years, others longer.
But when Julie comes across a very attractive runaway convict she tried to protect him from the law and things tend to heat up between them; and not from the heat of Austrailia. But can their love survive or will it be forgotton as they both head down their own dangerous roads?
