Annie Peacock is the strong willed young judge who heads up Yellowstone National Park's judicial system, and Will McCarroll is a longtime backcountry ranger who's obsessed with stopping poachers. Will's willingness to break every rule in the book has earned him a formidable reputation. It's also earned him Annie's disdain.
When Annie's mother is kidnapped by someone wanting to scare her off the bench, Will helps her search, and a common respect, understanding, and attraction develops between these two former enemies.
But when Will learns of a plan for trophy hunters to shoot the park's cherished "alpha female" wolf, Number 22, he disappears into the back country to stop them. Number 22 is on the move to find a new mate, after the killing of her pack leader, Number 21. The price on her head grows into the high five-figures, and her safety rests with Will finding the poachers before they find her. As Will tracks Number 22 into the wilds of Yellowstone, he discovers the true extent of the danger-and that there is far more at risk than the life of the alpha female.
