Cowboy and woman on grassy valley

He’s looking for the one thing she’s done with: family.

Brade Oliver arrives in Grand, Montana, looking for blood—and answers. Genetic tests reveal that his biological family may reside in the small, western town, and he’s on a mission to finally discover the one thing his adoptive family couldn’t give him: the truth.

Kendall McKinley craves a normal life, free of the demands, drama, and constraints of her dysfunctional family. Despite being focused on building her career and working on a restoration project, Kendall can’t help herself from noticing a handsome stranger the first night he arrives. But when Brade starts asking uncomfortable questions around town, Kendall is determined to protect her community and friends. The harder she tries to steer Brade away from the answers he seeks, the more he pushes back…and the more irresistible he becomes.

Brade is determined to uncover the truth no matter what, and Kendall finds herself torn between keeping the secrets of people she cares for and finding answers for the man she loves.

Read on for an excerpt from THE COWBOY’S LOST FAMILY:

She watched him walk away, his stride strong and long, not so much a swagger as a promise. His was a bruised, jagged life among crude men and animals, bloodstained, sweat-marked, and harsh. He said she was strong, yet he treated her as if she were made of glass.

He stirred something in her that she couldn’t identify. More than desire, not quite love, not anger, but a slow-growing sense of outrage.

Maybe she wasn’t a joke or a liability, though she couldn’t quite believe that yet. But she wasn’t a treasure, either, or a miracle or the eighth wonder of the world.

She was flesh and blood and questions and hopes and fears.

She was a woman.

And she was ready to figure out just what that meant.
