Ethan: Black Sheep Cowboy (Parker Ranches, Inc.) Book 4
Black Sheep Cowboy
(Sweet Grass Ranch)
Navy SEAL Ethan Mackay returns to Sweet Grass Ranch to recuperate from an injury obtained on a mission, and eventually help manage the family South Dakota ranch with his identical twin brother, Evan. But at age thirty-one, he’s been gone way too long, and he’s not the man who left the ranch all those years ago. Not by a long shot. His body broken, and hopefully not his mind, he prays what they say is true—that cowboy runs deep in your blood—because this black sheep cowboy could sure use something familiar to hang his hat on.
But being back home at Sweet Grass is almost more of a challenge than heading up a special ops mission in Libya. Especially when something familiar turns out to be the main challenge—his ex-wife, Brandley Mendoza.
Brandley and Ethan’s marriage quickly unraveled when Ethan headed into SEAL training and by the time of his first deployment, their relationship was fatally severed. Still, she keeps in close contact with the MacKays and considers them family. Hired under the pretense of fixing the ranch’s accounting books after Hap MacKay’s death, Brandley questions Ethan’s twin brother, Evan’s, motive. Why Evan thinks she is the person to help Ethan get his head back on straight, she doesn’t know—especially when she’s dealing with her own problems. But she risks coming down from her Black Hills safe haven to find out—only to realize her heart is still vulnerable, and Ethan is not the cowboy she married fresh out of high school.
Her work is cut out for her. Can she tease out the cowboy in Ethan’s black sheep heart and rediscover the man she once knew and loved? Can she resolve the issues of her own shaky past, to let herself trust again? Or are they both too far gone to even try?
