Barrett Iron Feather hardly has time for romance between busting drug rings as a veteran police officer and maintaining his roping winning streak at rodeos. Then his world turns upside down when the police chief goes behind his back and makes Barrett head of security for a Hollywood movie set. Skystone Canyon is a historical western being filmed in the picturesque mountain town of Bandits Hollow, and Barrett's furious he's been relegated to supervising "pampered city slickers". Yet he never dreamed duty would force him to run smack-dab into his first boyhood crush, former child star Lainey Neil. All grown up now, Lainey's no longer the chubby teen driven by her abusive father to attend "fat camp" at a Colorado horse ranch. She's a beautiful film star, and she's shocked to come face to face with Barrett, that unforgettable cowboy who taught her the grit she needed to survive her hellish childhood. Can a second chance at first love possibly blossom into forever love? Only destiny knows if Hollywood-style happy endings can become real...

Skystone Canyon is Book 2 in the Iron Feather Brothers contemporary western romance series.


A feisty cop, an actress and and a reunion of their childhood first love! With the second book in the Iron Feather Brothers series, we get Barrett’s story. It wasn’t quite as compelling as Dillon’s story in the first book of the series, but still really good. The characters were well developed and the plot was action packed!

Police officer Barrett Iron Feather is fit to be tied when he finds out the police chief has volunteered him to keep peace and order on the set of a movie being filmed in town. He has much better things to be doing than babysitting a bunch of self-righteous city slickers!

Former child star Lainey Nieil has a special affinity to Bandits Holllow and is thrilled to be there filming the movie she hopes will carry her into a whole new realm of acting jobs. Skystone Canyon is a historical western with a heroine full of sass and grit who proves how strong a woman can be no matter what adversity she’s faced with. Exactly the type of jobs she’s wanting to play!

It turns out Lainey went to camp in Bandits Hollow years ago and Barrett befriended her, so when they see each other again, it’s something special! Neither ever forgot the other, and the things they experienced with each other in their youth led each of them to be the person they are today. Will spending time together again lead to something more?
