Medicine Bow

When an injury puts paid to Flynn Black's professional fighting career, he retreats to his hometown to lick his wounds. Angry and bitter at the loss of the only thing he's ever known, he withdraws from the world, becoming as cold and aloof as the Colorado mountains that surround his home. But then he discovers the one thing that he wants more than fighting. He knows he's going to have to make some changes - and he's going to need help.

No one is more surprised than the perfectly poised Molly McIntosh when Flynn Black - her reclusive neighbor - comes to her with an unusual request. He’s decided he needs help becoming more civilized, and that Molly is just the woman for the job. Flynn is as coarse as Molly is refined, as foul-mouthed as she is cultivated, yet there's something about the prickly ex-fighter that intrigues her. He's a challenge she can't resist. She thinks her privileged upbringing has prepared her for anything, but it never prepared her for her growing feelings for the surprisingly sensitive man that lurks beneath Flynn's hard exterior - a man she knows can never be hers.

When rancher Travis Walker gave Sophie Wells a Colorado-sized brush off, she fled their hometown of Medicine Bow, her heart-broken and her dreams of happily-ever-after in his arms in tatters. Inheriting his ailing family ranch after the unexpected death of his father uncovered secrets that left Travis bitter and resentful. His new responsibilities weighed heavily on him, leaving him no option but to push Sophie away. She was the kind of woman who deserved the best in life – something he was in no position to offer her.

Now, years later, Sophie’s back, no longer the naïve sixteen-year-old who offered her heart and soul to Travis that fateful night, but an accomplished veterinary technician with a promising career. Sparks fly when the former childhood friends are thrown together again following the death of Travis’s prize bull under suspicious circumstances. He knows he’s going to need Sophie’s help to uncover the truth - but the truth turns out to be far more complicated than either of them could have anticipated. By the time Travis realizes how much he stands to lose, he knows it may take a miracle to win Sophie back, but it’s a challenge he’s willing to accept for the woman he needs more than his next breath…
