The new novel from the bestselling author of Lone Rider.

Sometimes the war comes to you . . .

After serving as a Navy medic, Dawson Callahan is back in the States and ready to start over. Leaving his native Texas, he heads for the wide open spaces of Wyoming, where he finds work as a wrangler. True, he'll mainly be wrangling chickens--and wrangling Sarah Carter's granny, who's still spry, but in need of a little caregiving. But ranch work is ranch work, and it's hard to turn down a job offer from the beautiful Sheriff Carter--especially when she deputizes him as one of her lawmen.

Sarah loves her grandmother, but with her law enforcement career keeping her busy, they could both use some help from a strong, steady man. And policing Lincoln County has only gotten tougher since a merciless drug lord arrived in the area. When Sarah takes a bullet on the job, it's Dawson who comes to her rescue--and though they both thought they left war behind in Afghanistan, they'll do whatever it takes to protect what's theirs, even if it means facing down traumas they've buried for years. Because love isn't for the faint of heart . . .

Publishers Weekly Review

McKenna's suspenseful sixth contemporary set in Wind River Valley, Wyo. (after Lone Rider), features a fearless sheriff who discovers love with a kindhearted former combat corpsman. Sheriff Sarah Carter first considers hiring Dawson Callahan, a cattle wrangler who learned paramedic skills in the Navy, to help her aging grandmother. When Sarah gets a 911 call about a car crash while she's chatting with Dawson, she asks him to come along and help care for the wounded, but it's a setup by local drug lords, who nearly take them down. Their near brush with death draws them closer, and attraction builds. Sarah then goes to handle a domestic dispute at the home of Brian Elson, but Brian is killed and Sarah is gravely wounded. Once she's released from the hospital, Dawson and Sarah hole up in a mountain cabin so she can heal emotionally and physically and stay safe from Brian's son Hiram, who's plotting to kill her to avenge his father's death. McKenna's refreshing, fast-paced romance is enhanced by fully developed characters, affable protagonists, and the subtle development of love. Agent: Claire Gerus, Claire Gerus Literary.
