祸从天降,双亲故去,姑姑的到来将为她撑起一片天,自己的弟弟却不知所踪。青梅竹马的英雄警长出手相助,然而峰回路转,却发现他与这一切灾难逃不了关系。待一切水落石出,曾共度苦难的二人是否能够携手走进幸福?

萨米和本在达拉斯发生严重车祸,留下了他们的孩子——不到一岁的婴儿汉娜。作为萨米的妹妹,克里•米勒承担起了抚养汉娜的责任,而事实上,她面对的现实更糟糕,因为现在唯一的亲人——弟弟卡特不知身在何方。警长西蒙•蒂格和克里很小就认识,他觉得自己一直都很了解她,并竭尽全力帮助她。虽然几乎所有人都被西蒙的魅力折服,克里在少女时期也喜欢过他,但她还是刻意与西蒙保持距离,不愿接受他的帮助,因为正是这个人让卡特毁了自己的生活,让她现在几乎失去了所有的家人。尽管这样,西蒙十分坚定诚恳地帮助克里渡过难关。随着往事谜团的解开,以及现实问题的共同面对,两人逐渐拉近了距离。

作为作者的系列牛仔小说之一,《牛仔警长》生动刻画了主人公克里和西蒙的复杂的内心体验。他们就是普通人,尽他们所能面对生活的不测、失去的痛苦,讲述了爱、原谅、家庭等贴近生活的话题。

西蒙•蒂格注视着电脑上的雷达图像,叹息着。

“真是五彩缤纷。”副警长皮特•凯恩走到西蒙的身后说道,手里拿着一杯刚冲好的咖啡。

“有点儿太五彩缤纷了。”在西蒙看来,图像上有太多的蓝色和粉色。如果大雪或者更糟的冰暴天气进一步南移,他们就将面临一个恐怖的夜晚。

“我在路上听人们说,至少冰会停留在北边。”

西蒙咕哝着说。达拉斯和沃思堡在冬季遭遇恶劣天气,真是太糟糕了。冰雪天气很少会向南移动到他们现在所在的奥斯汀、圣安东尼奥和希尔镇,人们快要崩溃了,好像世界末日到来了。这样的天气会造成交通事故,会让他和助手们在户外严寒中度过痛苦的数小时。

他刚点击查看了按小时更新的天气预报,电话铃声就响了。他一边伸手去拿听筒,一边滚动页面查看气温,这么低的温度本不该越过红河进入得克萨斯州的。

“警察局。”

“是蒂格警长吗?”

“请讲。”西蒙把电脑网页最小化,将注意力全部都转移到电话上。

“我是达拉斯警察局的詹姆斯•戴尔。”

“我刚刚看到你们那里遭到重创的消息。”

“是的,这就是我打电话的原因,”戴尔说道,语气听起来很严肃。

一股寒气顺着西蒙的背部渗下来。这不是什么好情况。

"I'M divorced." Rachel Palmer raised her chin after saying so and affected a smile.

Simon Teague eyed the radar image on his computer and groaned.

“Colorful,” said Deputy Pete Kayneas he walked behind Simon with a fresh cup of coffee.

“Little too colorful.” The image showed too much blue and pink for his taste. If the snow and, worse, ice dipped down much farther, they were going to have a devil of a night.

“I heard on the way that they think at least the ice will stay north.”

Simon grunted. It was bad enough when Dallas and Fort Worth got socked with winter weather. On the rare occasion that it ventured as far south as Austin, San Antonio and the Hill Country where they now sat, people tended to freak out as if the apocalypse had arrived. That led to wrecks, which led to his deputies and him spending miserable hours out in the cold.

He’d just clicked on the hourly forecast when the phone rang. He reached for the receiver as he scrolled through temperatures that should never cross the Red River into Texas.

“Sheriff’s Department.”

“May I speak to Sheriff Teague?”

“Speaking.” Simon minimized the computer screen and shifted his focus fully to the phone call.

“This is James Dial with the Dallas P.D.”

“Just saw you all are getting slammed up there.”

“Yeah, that’s why I’m calling,” Dial said, sounding serious.

A chill went down Simon’s back. This wasn’t going to be good.
