Wild Rain follows the story of a Black female rancher, Spring, in Wyoming after the Civil War. Spring has triumphed over a turbulent past.  But now Spring owns her own ranch, wears jeans instead of dresses and is not looking for love. Then in walks Garrett McCray, an escaped slave, now reporter in Washington who has come to Wyoming to do a story on doctors for his Black newspaper. Garrett thinks Dr. Colton Lee will be an interesting subject – until he meets Dr. Lee’s sister Spring.  

 

As their attraction grows, Spring is reluctant to give in to someone like Garrett, who makes her question her decision to avoid love. Garrett, however, is certain that Spring is the most fascinating woman he’s ever met and certain she feels the passion that is blazing between them. But when a dark cloud from Spring’s past returns – her ranch, her well-being and fierce love are on the line.
