In Houston Carlin Reed went out on a couple of dates with Brad Hendersen, but ended their relationship as he frightened her. She moved to Dallas to stay away from him, but she is unaware that he followed her patiently; waiting for the right moment to pounce as no one dumps Brad. When he sees her leaving her place of work, he shoots and kills her. Only Brad makes his first error as he kills Carlin’s cubicle mate Jina Matthews instead of his intended target.

Ten months later, Carlin has moved several times to stay off the radar as she knows her psychopath hunts her to finish the job. With winter arriving, Carlin obtains a position as a housekeeper and cook at Zeke Decker’s ranch in Battle Ridge, Wyoming. Zeke knows the woman he is falling in love with is in trouble and wishes she would tell him so he could protect her. Carlin thinks of leaving as she fears Brad will come to kill her and harm her beloved employer.

The first Men from Battle Ridge is an exhilarating ranch romantic suspense starring a woman in peril, the cowboy who vows to protect his beloved, and a predatory psychopath. Though the premise has been done before, Team Linda keeps it fresh as fans await a triangular confrontation in the Cowboy State.
