Headstrong horse rescue director Bren Ryan has been a red-headed streak of trouble for more than one man in Clear Spring. She’s grown up needling local “kill buyer” Wes Connelly, and since the sheriff ruled her husband’s sudden death an accident, Bren’s been investigating things herself. She’s certain Tom was murdered, and she’s hell-bent on cornering his killer the only way she knows how—by tempting him to do it again. And she’s the bait.

Rafe Langston came to Maryland looking for land and a fresh start. Or so he says. The sexy cowboy isn’t generous with details, but Bren couldn’t care less—until he buys half her farm at auction and moves into her childhood home. Suddenly, the last man she should befriend becomes her only ally in solving her husband’s murder. Soon their cozy stakeouts sizzle with unexpected desire neither one can ignore, threatening his mysterious plans and her promise to never fall in love again—especially with a handsome stranger whose secrets could shatter what family she has left.

“Loved it! Just the right balance of suspense to romance with the true reality of horse slaughter as it is today. I could relate well to Bren and her passionate mission of rescuing equines destined for an awful, undignified end. Loved Bren’s strong and somewhat tempestuous personality, which is why I guess I could relate so well. The dark, handsome cowboy was a bonus and the deepening plot had a great twist that was totally unexpected. It was the first novel I have read in a while and once I started reading, it was hard to stop.
Looking forward to seeing Relentless on the shelves so other romantic horse lovers can also share the literary experience. Will definitely be recommending Relentless to those wanting a great read! Great work!”—Nicki Cherrington, President and Founder, Last Chance Equine (Rotorua, New Zealand)

“Thank you, P. J. O’Dwyer, for writing this book. You have truly captured the essence of those of us who have cried many times for those we couldn’t save. Make my job obsolete. Read Relentless—feel the pain, experience the joy, and eliminate horse slaughter.”—Raven W. Jackson, Farm Manager, Earth ARC Horse Rescue Unit, (Nova Scotia, Canada)

Relentless is a stirring and intriguing story that intertwines the important issues facing our horses. It made me laugh, cry, and left me hanging on the edge of my seat more times than I can count. It has everything a book should have and more: intrigue, love, deception, mystery, unexpected twists, and an underlying truth of the horrors faced by horses.”—Shelley Sawhook, President, American Horse Defense Fund (Washington, D.C.)

“O’Dwyer is a master at putting emotion to paper and making it convincing. Relentless is high intensity at its best. It gives the heart a workout in every possible way—suspense that has it pounding nonstop, romance that has it thumping, and frustration, anger, and deep sorrow that holds it clenched in a vise. I could not put it down!”—Cindy Taylor, All Book Reviews

Relentless is an enthralling read, with twists and turns that keep you in suspense. O’Dwyer has crafted a wonderful story that takes you from the countryside of Maryland to the drug wars of Mexico, all because of the love of the horse. Her research for her subject matter is exceptional in this wonderful tale.”—Alex Brown, author of Greatness and Goodness: Barbaro and His Legacy
