Damien returns from duty as a Marine, thinking he would slip right back in on the Laughing P and fill the shoes that Granddaddy once did. His family and the small town he calls home have moved on without him though, and there's no easy position for him to fill, not even Granddaddy's.
Lexi, the quiet girl next door, has held his heart since high school. Stepping in and taking the burden that was once Granddaddy's, she's now the ranch manager with rustlers and secrets of her own, leaving little time to entertain a high-school romance.
When secrets Damien thought were safely buried rear up, he can no longer tell friend from foe.
A stranger in a town that should be home, with no one on his side, can love save him, or will he be consumed by his demons?
