Zakia and The cowboy is a heartwarming story about young love gone wrong and second chances.
Spending her days alone while the men worked on the ranch wasn't exactly what Zakia had in mind when she married Luke. Visions of snuggling in their rustic cabin all but vanished the minute they said their "I do's". A deep seated fear that she would never fit into Luke's life like a wife should seeps into Zakia's mind and takes hold. She felt he didn't love her, didn't want to spend time with her. So, she did what every young girl driven by emotion and imaginary rejection does....she left.
Zakia sets out to start a new life on her own. Not long after she leaves, she realizes she is pregnant. She desperately hopes Luke will come after her and whisk her into his arms, shouting to the rooftops that she is his wife, she belongs with him, he loves her more than anything in the world. But he doesn't. She wants to call him, but she doesn't. Pride infects both of them and envelops their hearts with tangled webs of misconception. Luke feels rejected and abandoned. Zakia feels foolish forever thinking Luke loved her. Their stubbornness gets in the way of their love for each other....as it often does for some of us in real life.
Years later, Zakia begrudgingly realizes the only one she can run to in her time of need is her ex-husband Luke. A crazed stalker has her running back to the ranch and into Luke's arms. But will he accept her and help her? Or will he let his pride control him once more?
