Image of The Wrangler (Jackson Hole, Wyoming)

With a beautiful Wyoming setting and memorable characters — including a hero who’s reinventing himself and a heroine who’s learning to trust — McKenna skillfully shows that it’s all about the romance and not only the sex. After all, hard work, honesty and trust is what western romance is all about.

Val Hunter lands in the one place she hates and never planned on returning to: her hometown. But she has no choice now that her grandmother needs her to run the family ranch. Now all they need is a wrangler. With nowhere to run after losing everything in the Wall Street crash, Griff McPherson returns home to Wyoming. He needs a job that can help him rebuild his faith in himself and prove where he belongs. He may have found it on the Bar H. Together Val and Griff work side by side to rebuild the ranch, against the odds and a villain who wants the land. Along the way, they may find what they’ve been missing, if they can break through their barriers. (HQN, Jul., 384 pp., $7.99)
