A dilapidated house, a city girl looking for a tree change, and a rugged vet with a past. Just another day in rural Australia...Just ten days after her fresh start in the isolated Snowy Mountains, Samantha Walker trips over a three hundred pound pig and lands in the arms of Dr. Ethan Granger -- and the firing line for gossip. It was hardly a 'date' but sparks of the sensual kind are difficult to smother in a community of only 87 people. Now there's a bet running on how long she'll stay and what she'll get up to while she's in town. Ethan has his own issues -- Sammy's presence in his childhood home brings with it painful recollections of family scandals and a bad boy youth. When the gossip around them heightens, his life is suddenly a deck of cards spread on the table for all to see. Then Sammy's past catches up with her...and it looks like all bets are off.
