Posy McVey left the Kaw village where she was raised and came to live at the Brody Hotel to escape the unwanted advances of a brave in her tribe. She is happy to live near her brother and his new wife, but she misses the freedom she had out on the prairie, and chafes at the restrictions of living in the white man's world.
Parker Monroe is looking for a new job and finds one as a deputy for Topeka's marshal. He and his sister will be moving from the home where they grew up to start a new life in a new place, and meeting the pretty waitress at the Brody Hotel makes the transition easier.
But as pasts are revealed and prejudices come to light, will Posy and Parker be able to sort through their differences? Or are the things keeping them apart too great to overcome?
