Some nightmares you don’t wake up from.

Noah Scott spent two months in an enemy prison camp but made it out alive—unlike most of his SEAL team. He’s one of the lucky ones but doesn’t always feel that way with his scarred body and daily fight against PTSD.

Working with the animals at the Resting Warrior Ranch helps. So what if he trains service dogs, fosters a couple of kittens, and has an alpaca as one of his best friends?

He’ll take whatever holds back the darkness.

When beautiful Kate Tillbeck arrives at the Resting Warrior Ranch neck deep in danger, Noah knows he can’t stand by silently. Especially when the threat centers around a dog fighting ring—and some of the pups he trained may be involved.

But to save the animals he loves and the woman he can’t get out of his mind, Noah will have to embrace the darkness he’s pushed down for years.

And hope he doesn’t lose himself in the process.


Chock full of suspense, danger and sexual chemistry! The fourth book in the Resting Warrior Ranch series continues to delve into the former soldier’s lives that founded this ranch to help fellow soldiers suffering from PTSD as they are hot on the heals of a dog fighting ring in the neighboring area. I wasn’t as invested in this book as I normally have been the ones earlier in the series. It was intriguing and a solid read, but something fell a little flat for me. I’m still looking forward to the next in the series though.

Noah is a solid character with a heart of gold, but I don’t think his background was developed quite enough to really make his suffering gut-wrenching to the reader.

Kate is a bit naive in the trust she places in her brother, but I liked her regardless.

I recommend this book and the rest of the series to anyone that enjoys a group of former soldiers coming together to make a connection for life and help others who might have suffered their same experiences. The intrigue is high, the emotional connections are satisfying and the romance is sweet and sassy.
