He’s heartsick and battle weary. Maverick Carson returned home from war with too much pain and not enough honor. Searching for a way to forgive and forget, he quits The Team. He's in Wyoming when the sight of a pretty girl atop a massive draft horse steals his breath away - until the hillside gives way beneath beast and maiden. When he rushes to her aid, he runs straight into the world of China Wolf, the headstrong owner of the Wild Wolf Ranch and the owner of the finest Percherons in the country.
She doesn’t need a man in her life. Never has. Never will. China Wolf has responsibility enough between the rowdy horses she loves, the wayward sister she tolerates, and the precocious niece she adores. Besides, Maverick made it clear he’d rather hit the road. Why should she care? She doesn’t - not until she glimpses the cowboy in his eyes. Maybe she needs a man after all. Just. This. One.
