Malik "Steel" Thompson is staring down his twenty year mark as a Navy SEAL. He has a life choice to make...re-up or retire. His folks urge him to take over the family blacksmith business back home in Montana. Steel's never been anything but a military man, and the thought of a civilian life, especially in Eagle Rock--the place he couldn't wait to get out of at eighteen--is not the way he wants to go.
LeTeisha "Letty" Stephens' life is circling out of control faster than her horse running barrels at the rodeo. An ailing mother, a failing ranch, and her World Champion title on the line, she must win the purse at the finals or she'll lose everything.
When Letty witnesses something she shouldn't, she'll lose more than the race. She could lose her life. Steel, with the help of Hank Patterson and the Brotherhood Protectors, take on the fight of his life, one he's familiar with--taking down the bad guys. And one he's not--fighting for his heart.
