After a seven year absence, Mark Talbot returns to the Dakota Territory looking for a little peace a quiet. But peace isnt' what he finds: Greedy landholder King Magnussen of the Double-X ranch wants sole reign of the Bench, a fertile and prosperous region in the Dakota Territory. And Magnussen always gets what he wants.
So when Talbot meets beautiful young Suzanne, King's beloved daughter, he learns quickly that Suzanne always gets what she wants, too. And she wants Talbot. Then there's Jacy Kincaid, the little-girl-next-door, who has grown into a stunning strong-willed woman, fighting against King and his thugs for turning the Dakota Territory into Dakota Kill.
Before Talbot can rest his tired bones, he finds himself not only confronted with a land war, but a love war too. . . .
