Love can heal the deepest wounds…
A sense of duty brings a soldier home…but a passionate cowboy makes him want to stay.
After his brother’s tragic death, Tripp has to leave the army and return to New Mexico to take care of his mother while his father is in prison for arson. Seeking work at the J-Bar Ranch, Tripp is immediately drawn to injured cowboy Lucho Reyes, whose foot was accidentally crushed by a rescue horse. But will the sins of the father interfere with the desires of the son? Tripp’s father may be responsible for the death of Lucho’s grandfather. Now Tripp must balance caring for his mother, repairing his father’s damages, and trying to win the heart of a man who has every reason to hate him and his family.

Leaving home to join the Army at eighteen was one of the best things Tripp ever did for himself. The life he had at home wasn’t what anyone would ever define as ideal or healthy. In a way Tripp was running. He had to get away from his father and his hate. Now eight years later Tripp has to return home. One tragic event after another has left his mother alone. Being the honorable man that he is Tripp returns to the one place he has no desire to be.
Work at the J-Bar Ranch puts Tripp right in the line of fire of Lucho Reyes. The whole Reyes family loathes every Tripplehorn ever to set foot in New Mexico, all with good reason. Tripp’s father caused many people pain and Lucho’s family experienced that hate first hand. Lucho may like looking at the new hired hand but he knows that it is impossible for the apple son to fall far from the tree father.
This is the only book in the Cowboys series that I have read. Z.A. Maxfield has created a story within a series that works just fine as a stand-alone. There was plenty of time I wanted to strangle Lucho while reading My Cowboy Homecoming. He is horribly cruel to Tripp simply because of who his father is. The mean snips eventually turn into playful quips but it did that these two cowboys a while to get there.
Tripp to Lucho “You’re not just a dick in the barn.”
Lucho to Tripp “You are one song short of a Disney movie, homeboy.”
