"Wind River Cowboy" was an easy but hard read. It dealt with soldiers coming back from the war, PTSD, survivor's guilt and dealing with sexual harassment in the Army. Kira lost all but one other person on her team in an ambush and wound up losing them as well when they changed hospitals. When she gets a job at a ranch she winds up running into that last team member, Garret.
Garret gets the shock of his life when he comes into the kitchen and meets the eyes of Kira. He had no idea she was still alive having suffered some trauma himself. He’s naturally upset to have Kira there and gets even more frustrated when they wind up sharing a space.
I tell you the sexual tension between these two was steaming and I felt for both of them. They went through so much and were still going through some things. They are true fighters and have survived through a lot. I recommend "Wind River Cowboy", for those who love cowboys, soldiers and survivors.
Don't miss the next book, "Wrangler’s Challenge".
The new novel from the bestselling author of Wind River Rancher
An unexpected reunion . . .
Kira Duval was part of a Special Forces team that got caught in an ambush—leaving only two wounded survivors: herself and Weapons Sergeant Garret Fleming. Losing her team was traumatic, and in the chaotic aftermath, as the Army moved them from hospital to hospital, she lost Garret too. But she never lost her secret yearning for him.
Finally, she gave up trying to track him down back in the States. But as she settles in at the Bar C cattle ranch in Wyoming, a place where veterans can find a home and a place to heal, she’s introduced to her sandy-haired, hazel-eyed housemate: none other than Garret Fleming.
They’re a long way from Afghanistan—and a long way from the people they used to be before tragedy changed their lives. But as Kira earns her keep by caregiving for the ranch owner’s bedridden, alcoholic father—a task that sometimes feels more challenging than any black ops mission—she finds that even in peacetime Garret still has her back, and that in this warm, welcoming place, the passion she resisted in the heat of battle may finally have a chance to flouish . . .
