Wolf-shifter Luka is lying in the snow under a tree.  He hadn't been strong enough to hunt for some time, his body racked with pain from a bullet wound in his back. Luka knows he is dying, but dying in freedom is better than dying in captivity. Luka’s redemption comes when he is recued by the human of his dreams, nature reserve land owner Charlie Danvers, Luka’s mate. 

Wounded Cowboy is book four in the Uncommon Cowboys series.  In this episode, the plot illustrates a villain’s attempt to subdue his opponents.  Luka’s abusive past, Charlie’s lonely life, sensual lovemaking and a fight to the death. Each of the main characters is gifted.  Luka dreamed of Charlie long before the two of them actually met.  Luka referred to Charlie as a healer.  In fact, Charlie did have a healing touch but Charlie’s true gift is a psychological healing, using yoga exercises.  Charlie felt a special connection with Luka, although Charlie did not understand where these feelings were coming from.   

Characters from the previous stories made a brief appearance in Wounded Cowboy continuing the theme of werewolves finding and claiming their human cowboy mates. Jan Irving’s Wounded Cowboy exhibits a blend of exceptionally arousing romance along with a precarious dilemma for the community.
