Two years ago, Josey Starr lost her husband. She’ll be damned if she loses her ranch too. The wolves are after her cattle, and someone is out for her land. Josey knows she needs help but she doesn’t want it from Hawk Marlow. She trusted him once – and vowed she never would again. She’s better off alone – isn’t she?
Hawk thinks he’s just checking his investment. But he’s invested more than he realizes. The land he acquired by default belongs to “The one that got away.” Hawk has something to prove – old flames never die; they just burn hotter on the Second Strike Ranch.
