In the small town of River Black, Texas, sits the Triple C—a working cattle ranch that sustains the town. But it also
When the Cavanaugh brothers return home for their father’s funeral, they discover unexpected evidence of the
old man’s surprising double life—a son named Blue, who wants the Triple C Ranch as much as they do. The eldest
son, Deacon, a wealthy businessman who couldn’t wait to leave the ranch and move on with his life, is looking to
use his powerful connections to stop Blue at any cost. He never expected the ranch’s forewoman, Mackenzie Byrd,
to get in his way.
Mac knows Deacon means to destroy the ranch and therefore destroy her livelihood. But as the two battle for
control, their attraction builds. Now Deacon is faced with the choice of a lifetime: Take down the Triple C to feed
his need for revenge, or embrace the love of the one person who has broken down every barrier to his heart.
Mackenzie had broken away from the cowboy, who remained staring
out at the sunset – or what he thought he was about to inherit -
and was walking back toward the house, her shoes dangling from the
fingers on her right hand. The late afternoon sun blazed red and
pink behind her, making strands of her dark hair flash copper as
it whipped in the wind. Her hips swayed in her gray dress as she
walked, and her long legs and bare feet had his mind conjuring up
country songs he hadn’t heard or thought about in ages.
It was damn unfortunate how beautiful she’d become. Granted,
he was pretty exceptional at resisting the things that were bad for
him. But in that moment, he wasn’t sure how he’d react if Mackenzie
Byrd put her head on his shoulder like she had the cowboy’s. Wasn’t
sure if his arm would steal around her waist too, or he’d pull her
close to his side and brush his lips over the curve of her right
He frowned. Thoughts like that were dangerous. This was Mac
we were talking about. The foreman of the Triple C. Cass’s best
friend. Blue Perez’s...friend. She was annoying, muddy little
Mac. Sure, she’d grown, in all sorts of ways he couldn’t help but
notice. But she was and would always be troublesome. And he didn’t
have time for troublesome.
A yard or two before she hit the bottom stair of the porch,
she looked up and spotted him. Her expression tightened instantly,
and even in the shadowed light, Deacon noticed how stormy her blue
eyes had turned. She was pissed. As usual. But this time, he wasn’t
exactly sure who she was pissed at.
“Giving my new baby brother a little comfort?” he called out.
“That’s how friendship works,” she returned, her tone as
thunderous as her gaze. She moved up the steps, and around the
porch railing to face him. “All right, Deacon. Let’s have it. What
are you going to do?”
He inhaled deeply, glanced at the driveway and his truck parked
there. “I haven’t decided. Get to bed early, or maybe head into
town for some supper.”
“Dammit, that’s not what I’m talking about and you know it!"

The Cavanaugh brothers left behind River Black, Texas, long ago. But after their father dies, bequeathing them
the Triple C, a cattle ranch that sustains their small town, they return—and confront the painful memories of their
childhood home and the truth about their sister’s murder…
For years, James Cavanaugh has traveled the world as a horse whisperer, but even the millions he’s earned hasn’t
healed the pain he hides behind his stoic exterior. Forced to tackle old demons at the ranch, James throws himself
into work to avoid his true feelings. Until he meets a woman who shakes the foundations of his well-built walls…

ready to swear off men. But after being rescued from a horse stampede by the most beautiful cowboy she’s ever
met, her resolve wavers. Only, as Sheridan uncovers James’s belief that no woman is safe with him, she wonders if
such a wounded man could ever give in to love, or if some hearts are too broken to be healed…
