Overview

Dev Summers wants nothing more than to quit the grind of the rodeo and return to his grandfather's Nevada ranch. At thirty-five, and battling serious injuries, his decision to retire from professional bull riding thrusts him into conflict with his freewheeling dad and brother. . .and into the arms of July Jones, a woman he dare not love.

Running from a failed marriage and an empty life, July is searching for meaning to her existence. She seeks sanctuary at the ranch with Dev, her long-time friend and confidante. As she struggles with her own inner conflict and her growing desire to be more than Dev's friend, she becomes the catalyst that sets his family on a course they did not seek, nor could have foreseen. But before their broken lives can mend, tragedy and a murderous plot will force them to face what they have become.

Filled with heartbreak, passion, and hope, The Last Rodeo is an enthralling story of love, regret, conviction, and the unforgettable journey of a family in transition.

"Great story-telling, a stunning sense of place . . . one of the finest and most authentic western novels to come along in ages."

Irene Bennett Brown, author of The Bargain

"The Last Rodeo brings the world of professional bull riders into sharp focus¿the swagger, the glory, the danger, the pain¿along with the pride and heartache of the women who love them."

Dee Marvine, author of The Lady Rode Bucking Horses
