Devorah McGuire and Sloan Rankin meet on the side of the
highway when Dev blows a tire on her horse trailer. Sloan
had seen the tire blow and stops to offer her a hand in
changing it. There is an instant attraction for both of
them, but neither is interested in a relationship right
now, both trying to heal from hurts in their past. In
conversation, Sloan learns that Dev will be the new
Ranger at Teton Park, where he is also a Ranger and the
park farrier. As they work together, they learn they have
many other things in common as well.
Dev left the Smokey Mountains National Park, where she
had been a Ranger, because of a stalker who attacked her
there. Bart Gordon didn't get much more than a slap on
the wrist from the judicial system. Dev just couldn't
stay. She's trying to rebuild her life and move forward.
But Bart is out for revenge. He shows up in Jackson Hole
with plans to kidnap Dev, then rape and kill her. Can
Sloan keep her safe? Can he keep his heart safe from
falling in love with Dev?
OUT RIDER is another wonderful installment in Lindsay
McKenna's Wyoming series. Ms. McKenna has created several
military veteran characters and assimilated them into the
fabric of everyday life. Sometimes that is very hard for
her characters, as they have experienced great tragedies
that civilians can't begin to understand. Dev and Sloan
are both ex-military and very strong, but fractured
characters. They are surrounded by several supporting
characters that are also ex-military. Some of their
stories have already been told in this series, and new
characters are introduced.
OUT RIDER is a story about
trust, about letting your guard down and being truthful
with others and yourself. It's about choosing whether it
let the wounds in our lives run them or determining to
rise above them. You will love the military dogs that Ms.
McKenna incorporates into this story and how brave,
faithful and trustworthy they are. OUT RIDER can be read
as a great military romance stand-along, but I wouldn't
want to miss any of them!
