Wesson Campbell always says the wrong thing at the wrong time when under pressure. Because of that, he has a reputation for being a bit of a dumb meathead. He's a good cop, a master marksman, and spends his free time taking care of his mother, but his social skills and English language proficiency (for a third generation American raised in Montana) are somewhat lacking. Because of this, he doesn't think he has any chance with the smart, beautiful Dr. Molly Mooney. Molly Mooney is usually the smartest person in the room. After years of school and residency, Molly made the decision to open her own psychiatry practice in her hometown of Imminence. With contracts with the Montana Department of Corrections and the Bounty County Jail, Molly's career has become much more interesting and much more lucrative.
But a secret she's kept for years keeps her from really opening up to her new group of friends. She decides, during one drunken night, that Wesson is the one to help her. When Wesson's father is released from prison unexpectedly, a series of events puts Molly's job (and liberty) in jeopardy. Will Wesson be able to get Molly out of a sticky situation? Will Molly's secret be too much for him to handle? Will the two of them find love where they least expect it?
