Danica Jensen dreams of a man she knows she can never have. After one brief encounter five years ago, her heart is lost to him forever, and she won't give up hope of seeing him again. Raised by a bitter father, she's learned to be strong and resourceful on her own. When a pleasure trip to the newly created Yellowstone National Park turns into a battle for survival, her inner strength is tested like never before.
A woman like Danica doesn't interest Josh Osborne. He'd be crazy to get involved with a bossy, strong-willed white woman. His mixed heritage has always made people wary of him. He prefers to be on his own, and his role as protector of the national park's game allows for no attachments.
Danica's dream of ever winning Josh's heart shatters after a cruel twist of fate changes her life forever. Suddenly forced together, they must confront their deepest secrets. Josh can't deny his growing respect and admiration for this brave woman, but will the bond they've forged be powerful enough to turn his feelings into love? When an unforeseen danger threatens their lives, Josh must protect more than the wild inhabitants of the park.

Danica and Josh are a great couple. This story is captivating and exciting.
Danica has had a horrible year, experiencing a significant amount of violence before she's rescued by Josh. Living in Yellowstone is dangerous, and all the characters involved have to be tough and smart to survive.
This is the second book in the series with no time travel. This is also the second book in the series that was difficult to read because of the violence the heroine had to endure. I really did like Danica's character. I admired her in Yellowstone Awakening and was pleased to see her again. The way that she loved her baby despite the way she was conceived was just beautiful. The reunion between Danica and Kate was also sweet. It was Josh that I couldn't bring myself to like. I have loved the Hero in the other 10 books by Peggy by not Josh. His inability to reason things out really bothered me. Given the way that his mother died, I would have thought that Danica didn't need to actually spell out how she an unwed woman came to be pregnant and had killed the father of her child....
Although, the story was hard to read, it was well written and Danica makes it worth reading.
I enjoyed this book but not as much as others in the series. It just didn't have the same level of engagement, suspense or plot development that the first three did. Perhaps it is just me, since I'm now half way through the next book in the series and am finding it even bit as entertaining as the first three. Nick Sarando does an okay job of narrating but I prefer Alexandra Haag who narrated the first book.
Yes, I enjoy listening to audio books while working around the house. If I have read the book, this just adds another wonderful way to enjoy the story. I also enjoy listening to Nick Sarando narrating. He has a nice way of describing what a character is thinking and I like his voice for the different characters. I would never hesitate to purchase an audio book if I knew he was the narrator.
Dani may be one of my favorite heroines in the Yellowstone Series. I liked her the first time I met her in Yellowstone Awakening and I am so happy the Author gave Dani, her own story. Dani is a beautiful, strong, brave and independent young woman that takes the hard knocks of life and deals with them with courage and hope, that things will get better. When she meets Josh in the wilderness of Yellowstone, she realizes who he is and that she met and fell in love with him five years ago, but never expected to see him again.
Josh, handsome and rugged, but a hard mountain man, (but below the surface a very loving and supportive man with those he cares about) doesn't remember Dani and wouldn't care if he did. He always swore he would never get married unless he had a shotgun held to his head. He likes his independence too much. Little did he know what the future held for him.
Yellowstone National Park in 1877 is the background for this story, of a sweet and passionate romance with danger and suspense to keep us turning the pages, as our hero and heroine dodge bullets, trying to save each other from the enemy.
I loved this audio book and will be enjoying it again. I highly recommend. JudyE
