    Carlin Reed lives in fear, off the grid, moving from place to place. So Battle Ridge, Wyoming, a small town in the middle of nowhere, seems like a good place to lie low for a while. But after becoming cook and housekeeper to cattle rancher Zeke Decker, Carlin suspects that she’s made her first mistake. Rugged, sexy, and too distracting for his own good, Zeke is pure temptation mixed with something deep and primal that makes Carlin feel almost safe. Soon things are getting way too hot in the kitchen.

    Story

    Three years ago, Dare returned home to rural western Montana and opened a hunting business to rival Angie’s. Complicating matters is the fact that Dare has asked Angie out (not once but twice) and has given her a gift of butterflies in the process. Angie has no patience for butterflies. They only lead to foolish decisions. And now the infuriatingly handsome Iraq war vet has siphoned away Angie’s livelihood, forcing her to close up shop. Before Angie is to leave town, she organizes one last trip into the wilderness....

    Story
    Where does Prey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Above the top!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely, the heroine went through serious obstacles any other romance heroine would never be allowed to face. She didn't have a knight in shining armor. She saved herself. Then the knight showed up to help finish her saving. They were real people.


    What does Abby Craden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The gruff voice of Dare and the sarcastic nature of Angie.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Dare tells Angie he loves her.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book mostly because it gives you a good solid story that's believable, and real. Gives you a sweet romance with just a touch of good sex thrown in. No over the top, describe every sexual detail down to the guys freckle between his but cheeks! It was refreshing to read a book that leaned much more on its story instead of how raunchy the author could make the sex scenes.

    Only a very wicked woman would stop for a hitchhiking cowboy. But Lauren Baker is no good girl - not anymore. Playing it safe never got her anywhere, except alone and broke. So when sexy Brett Wallace asks for a ride to a nearby hotel, she knows it's time to get naughty.
