About the Book


Oh, a whole new cast of characters to love as well as some appearances by old favorites that make me want to go back and read previous series. Mrs. Warren put far more than real-feeling people full of realistic issues in these pages. She put a lot of heart, some tough but love-filled conversations, and at least one “Ouch!” moment for me as a comment between characters hit a little too close to home.

Perhaps the conversation that will stick with me the most was between Reuben and Knox after the fire in the barn. I won’t say more to spoil anything, but I wonder what life could be like if we all had those kinds of conversations in our family, that honest, loving communication. If we all determined to see love in each other rather than focus on all the places we didn’t feel like we measured up.

At any rate, this was classic Susan May Warren: high action, a touch of heat, a bit of romance, and a roller coaster ride that partially ends but promises to keep going into the next book. I love it!


Montana rancher Knox Marshall’s danger years are behind him. A former bull-rider, he now runs the Marshall family ranch, raising champion bucking bulls for the National Professional Bullrider’s Expo (NBR-X). Wealth and success are his, but life is stable, expected, and…ordinary. He can’t help but wonder if his best years are behind him.

Kelsey Jones just wants a safe life, a family, a home. Onstage, the beautiful rising star of the Yankee Belles becomes the person she longs to be—vivacious and confident—burying the brokenness she carries from a violent assault. Becoming NBR-X’s next country act is key to outrunning her past and achieving the success and security she craves.

Knox and Kelsey’s paths collide when an explosion at an NBR-X event traps them in the rubble and leaves them reeling. Kelsey’s crippling nightmares return, but for Knox, an obsession to find the bomber is ignited.

When Kelsey’s past threatens Knox’s family, he’ll have to choose between saving the Marshall legacy or becoming the protector he’s always longed to be.

The explosive beginning to the Montana Marshall series.
