From the moment Roan Taggart picked up the pretty redhead at the Jackson Hole airport, his training and experience told him she was spooked. She's left New York City to visit the Wind River Ranch, where Roan is a wrangler, and just as he can pick up a horse's mood, he can feel the tension coming off her body.

But she's been scarred by trauma and her mother's murder . . . and knows a strong man can be dangerous. She came to wide-open Wyoming to flee a threat that's left her unable to write her novels. Now, as she rides horses with Roan and helps him build an isolated cabin, she's slowly letting down her guard. But danger has followed her west, and they won't have a future together unless they defeat a killer from her past. . .

McKenna’s captivating first Wind River contemporary shows that opposites do attract as a war-weary cowboy meets a New York City author. Shiloh Gallagher has had writer’s block for the past six months, ever since she was spooked by a stalker. She decides to visit a friend of her mother’s at her Wyoming ranch, Wind River. There is just one catch: Shiloh must reside in an employee’s cabin with Roan Taggart, the hunky, stoic cowboy who picked her up at the airport. Roan, a former Special Forces sergeant, exudes power, and his gentleness and caring toward Shiloh surprises and appeals to her. As she opens up to him about her past, which includes seeing her stepfather murder her mother, Roan begins to care for her even more, but they’re both uncertain about the possibility of their mutual attraction evolving into a life-changing relationship. When Shiloh’s stalker tracks her to Wyoming, Roan promises to do everything he can to keep her safe. The ever-present sensuality is a magnetic force that propels the novel forward amid simmering suspense. Agent: Ethan Ellenberg, Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency. (Nov.)
