Wind River Cowboy

Book 3, Wind River

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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 flourish . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 27, 2017 – McKenna revisits the beautiful landscape of Wyoming in her sensitive, powerful third Wind River Valley contemporary (after Wind River Rancher). Kira Duval is a decorated veteran grappling with PTSD. She finds a job on a ranch started by fellow veteran Shaylene Lockhart; it's a working ranch where veterans can hold meaningful jobs and begin to heal. Kira is pleasantly surprised when she learns that Garret Fleming, the only other member of her Special Forces team to survive an ambush in Afghanistan, is also working on the ranch, and they will be sharing a house together. Kira is assigned to cook and clean for Shay's difficult, alcoholic father, who is recovering from a stroke. When his abusive behavior triggers her PTSD, Garret stays by her side to support her. As Kira and Garret reveal that they have harbored romantic feelings for each other for years, they begin to heal from the wounds of the past and the trauma of survivor guilt. McKenna has carefully interwoven the devastation of trauma with the power of healing love.

OK read

I've really enjoyed all the books in this series, including this one, however this one wasn't my favorite. It took quite a while for the relationship to develop between Kira and Garrett to develop even though they have known each other and cared about each other for a long time. The whole thing was too drawn out in my opinion. The secondary storyline of the ranch owner and her father was far more interesting and I can't wait to see how this works out. There are also several secondary characters that are intriguing and left me wanting more so I will definitely be looking for the next in the series.

This is one I would recommend with the caveat that it takes a while to get going but worth the wait.

No insta-love here! Awesome!

This awesome book #3 in the Wind River Valley series features Kira Duval and Garrett Fleming. They spent three years on the same team in Afghanistan and the last they saw each other was during an ambush fire fight. Imagine their surprise when they meet, nearly a year later, at a ranch in Montana aimed at helping veterans struggling to put their lives back together again.

This is a fantastic story that sheds light on the struggles our veterans go through. Also knowing that there are REAL places like the Bar C Ranch is amazing. It's a beautiful thing!

This is a great romance with a touching story. It all felt so real. I can't wait to read the next one.
