Self-made tycoon Landry Sutton heads to Hangman Bend's Ranch to sell his land to his brother Zane. Though he's got cowboy in his blood, Landry plans to return to city life before the dust even settles on his boots. Of course, he didn't count on falling for Big Sky Country...or Ria Manning.
Ria's starting to settle into country life herself...until she has a close encounter of the terrifying kind with a buffalo. Turns out the peeping monster belongs to the cowboy next door--and he has her running even more scared than his bison. She wants a home where the buffalo don't roam, and the men don't either. Could Landry's homecoming be her heart's undoing?

Veteran bestseller Miller caps off her Big Sky series (Big Sky Country, etc.) with a sweet love story about trust, family, and forgiveness. Landry Sutton, brother of Big Sky Wedding protagonist Zane, and his neighbor Ria Manning have both been in Parable County, Mont., for a year. Formerly a Chicago investment executive, Landry left his competitive city lifestyle behind after his divorce, but he finds himself still longing for something more as he works out his relationships with his family. Ria is equally burdened; she’s a widow who bears complex grief for her imperfect husband’s memory and wrestles with loyalty to her cold half-sister, Meredith. When Landry decides to pursue Ria, the relationship gives both of them the support to forgive the past and move on. Though the quiet story doesn’t quite live up to the dramatic title, Miller’s fans will find all her comforting standbys: romance with a dollop of humor, a few charming animals, and an optimistic happy ending.
