Ex-Navy SEAL Talon Holt, knows all about heart rending loss. He lost his rancher father at age eleven. When his mother, Sandy Holt remarries, his foster father, Bradley, becomes a powerful and positive, loving father figure as he grows up on their family owned Triple H Ranch near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Talon leaves and joins the US Navy, becoming a vaunted SEAL. While he’s away, his foster father dies of a heart attack, leaving his mother, Sandy Holt, to run the large ranch by herself. Later, she contracts breast cancer and is forced to sell their ranch to pay her escalating medical bills. Through it all, Talon tries to be there for her, but is on deployment in Afghanistan, unable to support her as much as he wants. He sends most of his monthly pay check home to her, saving none for himself.

At twenty-eight years old, Talon is wounded and so is his combat assault dog, Zeke, on a deadly mission in Afghanistan. Both are discharged from the military, the nature of their wounds never allowing them to remain in the SEALs. Talon gets words when he’s recovering in the hospital, that his mother’s breast cancer has returned. She is nearly penniless and he must get home to be there for her; to help her. He must find a job to help earn money to pay her mounting medical bills. Yet, he’s gotten PTSD from an incident, that he can’t stand to be enclosed places like a plane, bus or train. Further, he’s been given Zeke, a Belgium Malinois, who can never do his job again because of his own war wounds. The two walk from San Diego, California to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Talon is stubbornly committed to getting home even though he’s weakened and has very little money on him. His loyal dog, Zeke, is always at his side.

Cat Edwin, paramedic and firefighter for the Jackson Hole Fire Department, driving to the Bar H during a late May snowstorm. She works there a part-time wrangler for Gus Hunter, who owns it. Griff and Val McPherson run the ranch for the eighty-four year old elder. Val is her granddaughter. What Cat doesn’t expect to find on the blizzard like conditions a mile away from the ranch, on the snow covered highway, is a man with a dog on a leash.

Little does she realize as she stops to rescue them from the blizzard, that this one compassionate act on her part will begin to change her life. She is good friends with Sandy Holt, and has never met her son, who is returning home from the military to be with his struggling mother. Gus Hunter is happy to see Talon home, offering him help from the blizzard. Zeke, his dog, is another thing all together, but the Hunter family adjusts to having an ex-SEAL combat attack dog among them. Cat is powerfully drawn to Talon, and yet, fights it. She’s got problem with an ended relationship she walked away from a year ago, but the man is now stalking her.

With help from the Hunters, Talon gets back on his feet to become a wrangler working to make money to help, once more, pay for his mother’s medical bills. He’s glad to be home to be with her, their relationship always strong and loving. What he doesn’t expect, however, is to find love for himself with Cat Edwin. The struggles, challenges and the heartbreak of coming home could weaken a lesser man, but Talon calls on his years as a SEAL. What he doesn’t realize is that Cat’s stalker is lethal. And that more than his strength and hard work as a SEAL are going to be called upon to protect her. When Cat is surrounded by danger, all Talon can think is that, once again, he will lose someone he loves. And that just can’t happen again…

If you have been reading my Wyoming Series, you will see returning people such as Gus, Val’s grandmother, Val and Griff McPherson and Cat Edwin.
