Justin made the ultimate sacrifice for his country, battling domestic terrorism, never the man he really was, using hate to avenge the death of his best friend. The friend he'd killed.
What he doesn’t count on is getting shot, and if he's going to die he wants it to be on Crooked Tree soil. Home.
Sam is as much a part of Crooked Tree as any of the families, and the offer to buy into the ranch is a dream come true. But falling for a hidden, secretive, injured man isn’t the way to keep his head in the game.
A Cowboy's Home, the third book in RJ Scott's Montana series, tells the story of Justin's return to Crooked Tree Ranch.
Having disappeared along with Adam, Justin sneaks back to the outskirts of the ranch while injured. Enter Sam. Swoon. Sam finds him and saves him, literally.
Justin's struggles are many, he doesn't feel worthy of being back with his friends and family, and he certainly doesn't feel worthy of love. He's living with the guilt of his past and it's haunting him. He's also in danger and fears bringing that danger back to the ranch.
Justin and Sam's story is about finding the strength to forgive oneself. It's about saving a stranger and falling in love with him. It's also about a troubled past and missing years.
RJ Scott excels in setting the scenery which is well described, transplanting directly me to Montana. A Cowboy's Home definitely adds to the fun of the Montana series, and it's great to see returning characters.
