Cattle Valley Series

Book Reviews

Of all the stories about Ryan, Rio, and Nate, this is the one that touches me the most...I truly enjoyed this book and recommend it, not just to Cattle Valley fans, but to everyone who appreciates a story with three men, very devoted to each other, who will stop at nothing to ensure their partners happiness
