Fans of bestseller Dailey's romantic westerns will relish this ninth entry (after Lone Calder Star ) in her series about the Montana ranching dynasty of the title. When Trey Calder, fifth generation scion and handsome heir to Triple C Ranch, falls for sexy photographer Sloan Davis, he brings her home to the ranch to meet his tight-knit clan. All seems idyllic after the young couple marry, until Trey learns of a connection from Sloan's past that erodes trust between them. Meanwhile, Trey, Sloan and the rest of the Calders face increasing danger from a man with a score to settle with the family. While the action unfolds slowly, juicy romance, the looming threat of vengeance on the Calders and vivid descriptions of big sky country will hold readers' attention until the dramatic conclusion.
