Frankie Staple has a secret. A year ago he shot a man to protect the woman he loves. Facing the death penalty, he flees, changes his name, and tries to avoid attention from anyone, especially law enforcement. Everything is going well until a mysterious message and a federal agent appear in his life on the same night.
Working with a powerful family, he finds himself on Avondale and facing the most difficult decision in his life: his freedom, or a chance to be with Felina again.
Felina Sanchez has been working to rebuild her life since a gunfight stole her best chance at happiness with a man who loved her. She moves to Avondale and opens a small cafe of her own, looking forward to a life of peace and quiet. All is well until Frankie reappears, bringing hope and danger with him.
