THE RANCHER AND THE VET
THE RANCHER AND THE VET (4) by Julie Benson: Reed Montgomery had good reasons for fleeing his family ranch for San Francisco and leaving behind a brokenhearted Avery McAlister — mainly a drunken and abusive father. Then his brother Colt is deployed to Afghanistan, and he needs to return to the Rocking M to care for his teenage niece. Reed comes back home, only to run into the family vet, Avery.
