Some things are worth fighting for…
After three years of travelling through Mexico, Hugh Devlin returns to Arizona, hoping to finally find somewhere peaceful to settle.
Reigning in his horse he looks down on the lovely landscape of Thunder Valley and finally feels like he’s home.
But no sooner does he arrive than he stumbles upon a near-dead man hanging from a tree and hears the unmistakeable sound of gunshots.
Not exactly the peaceful town he had imagined.
Undeterred, Devlin determines to purchase the Rocking S Ranch, deciding to bring justice on the notorious Pete Coffin.
As the town’s largest and most notorious landowner, Coffin’s men run riot against Thunder Valley’s settlers.
He soon finds himself tangled in a web of violence and deceit, not to mention a popular target for the towns’ mistrust.
To complicate matters further, he inadvertently catches the attention of two of the town’s most beautiful and headstrong women.
In this fast-paced, action-packed Western, will Devlin defeat his enemies and bring peace to Thunder Valley?
And which woman will capture his heart?
