There aren't many things that scare Steve Garrett, but with an enemy like Carlos Romero, Steve has good reason to be looking over his shoulder and on the move again. This time, he heads through high country to Montana, where for a short while he can enjoy doing what he like best--training horses.
With his new friend Reece, Steve works to have a chuckwagon team in shape for the Calgary Stampede. But inevitably, Steve's thoughts turn to memories of home, his past, his father and brother, and of course Lynne--always Lynne.
Ready to come to terms with it all, Steve heads back to Alberta hauling the most unlikely team of horses ever to enter a chuckwagon race. As if the odds against them weren't high enough, Romero is still waiting to settle a score.
