On a dark, lonely stretch of Midwest interstate, Nick Red
Shield swerves his pickup and empty horse trailer to avoid
a pair of eyes. They belong to a woman--battered, bruised
and barely conscious--in desperate need of a lift.
Lauren Davis grew up in the high-stakes world of horse
racing, a world that took her to fame as a jockey and into
a relationship with a dangerous high roller. Life with
Raymond Vargas has turned deadly, forcing her on the run,
but she can't abandon her son, and now she'll do anything
to get him back safe.
While Nick's instincts as a
loner kick into high gear, Lauren's vulnerability tugs at
him in ways he'd shut down long ago. A man more
comfortable with horses than people, unable to make peace
with a past that's left him scarred, Nick's not sure about
secretive Lauren. But he can't just leave her. And he
really doesn't want her to go.
In the safe haven of
his South Dakota ranch, among the magnificent painted
horses of Western legend, a bond of trust, truth and
passion becomes a lifeline for them both. But soon the
danger that shadows Lauren's life and her desperate
attempt to save her son will force Nick to confront his
own demons. Only then can he fight to save Lauren from
