After a year in medical school, Dakota Holden returned home to take care of the family business full time and help his father cope with multiple sclerosis. Devoted to his family, Dakota allows himself just one week of vacation a year, which he spends in some exotic location having all the fun he can stand. On his last vacation, a cruise, Dakota struck up a friendship with Phillip Reardon, and it fills an important role in Dakota’s life.

So when Phillip decides to take Dakota up on his invitation to visit the ranch, Dakota is happy to see him and meet his veterinarian friend, Wally Schumacher. Despite Wally’s inclination to help the wolves Dakota’s men shoot to protect the cattle, he and Dakota find they have a lot in common, including a fierce attraction. But they’ll have to decide if the Wyoming range is big enough for Dakota’s cattle, Wally’s wolves, and their love.


Book Review

This is another great book by Andrew Grey. A sweet story with normal, everyday characters that are both driven by a need to do what is right. Except, what each believes to be right, puts them into opposition where the discussion 'farm animals versus wild wolves' is concerned

Dakota is easy to like. He is incredibly dedicated to his father, and making the the family farm a success. He hardly ever even takes a vacation. I loved his sense of loyalty and the care he takes with Wally, even though Wally has a very different point of view where the wolves that have been attacking the farm are concerned.  

Wally was just adorable. His determination to save the wolves, his love for the wild animals was clear, but he also began to see how a cattle owner might look at them. His growing love for Dakota didn't stop him from fighting for the wolves, and I was very relieved to see that they were able to work it all out in the end.

I love how Andrew Grey takes average people and shows how they can become extraordinary, given the right situation. His stories are never flashy, but always about the deeper human condition. I love that about them, and A Shared Range was no exception.
