RELEASES JULY 5TH!The Fight for the Cimarron Ranch Has Just Begun!
When Cimarron ranch patriarch Chance Boden is caught in an avalanche, only the quick actions of hired hand Heath Kincaid save him. Before leaving by train to receive treatment to save his leg--and possibly his life--Chance demands that his three bickering adult children, Justin, Sadie, and Cole, live and work at home for an entire year, or lose ownership of the ranch .
Then Heath discovers that the avalanche may have been set--and more danger lurks. Finding his own future--and a desired future with Sadie--locked up in saving the Cimarron Ranch, Heath and the Boden siblings must work together against outside forces that threaten them all.
