Wife. Mother. Leader. In this stunning sophomore novel by the author of Bull Mountain, hell hath no fury like a woman.
It’s been more than a year since a rogue government agent systematically crippled the Burroughs family’s criminal empire on Bull Mountain. Two of the brothers were left dead, and Clayton, the youngest and only surviving member of the clan, is broken and haunted by wounds that may never heal.
Just three months after the birth of her infant son, what should be the happiest days of her life soon become the darkest when Kate Burroughs realizes there is no one left to carry on the family’s legacy, and the people of Bull Mountain are looking to her for leadership. And for good reason: The wolves are circling.
One year ago, Kate survived the darkness that almost killed her husband, and she used that same darkness to avenge him. Now, in order to protect her home and preserve the birthright of the one true heir to the mountain—her infant son—Kate has to tap into that darkness again . . . but this time it would seem she’s developing a taste for it.
