The final book in the Where the Trail Ends series by Anna
Schmidt is titled LAST CHANCE COWBOYS: THE RANCHER. A highly
ending to the historical western romance series. It's a
story that is set
in the late 1890's when cattle ranchers and sheepherders are
having a hard time coexisting in the Arizona Territory. The
tension is at an all-time high for everyone trying to make a
Trey and Neil own ranches that border each other. They both are

strong resilient woman that manages to persevere through tough
times. She is known to stand her ground and not back down.
When her attraction to Trey turns serious, they decide to marry
because it would be best for her son Joshua.
LAST CHANCE COWBOYS: THE RANCHER is a compelling story
describing the rough
and ruggedness of the American West during a time of
uncertainty. Somehow a beautiful romance blossoms in the middle
of the dust, dirt, and unknowns of the time. Trey and Neil are
two intriguing and complex characters that are well developed.
Trey is described as a dreamer, but Neil seems to be attracted
to the bigger picture overall. Neil knows that together they
can build a future worth fighting for.
LAST CHANCE COWBOYS: THE RANCHER is the last book in a
series that is full
of drama with the ups and downs of living in a time when work
was hard and the pay was little to none. A time where dreamers
were few and far between. A time when working with your hands
meant providing for your family. It's a story that is full
emotion and hopes for a better life. This adventure was an eye-
opening read that shows a slice of history and a loving family
grow. A truly enlightening read.

The world is changing, and the West isn't as wild as it used
to be. Trey Porterfield welcomes a new era of law and

territory. But not everyone is willing to see the old ways
change, and as the cattlemen and the herders take sides, a
full-blown range war may be inevitable. There's only one way
Trey can see to bring peace to his feuding neighbors.
Marry the enemy.
Nell Stokes is a young widow fighting just to stay alive. In

Love was never in the cards, yet as Trey and Nell fight to

has ever known.
