As the seasons change and the years roll, Lil stays steadfast to her dreams of becoming a wildlife biologist and protecting her family land, while Coop struggles with his father's demand that he attend law school and join the family firm. Twelve years after they walked together hand in hand, fate has brought them back to the Black Hills when people and things they hold most dear need them most.
An investigator in New York, Coop recently left his fast-paced life to care for his aging grandparents and the ranch he has come to call home. Though the memory of his touch still haunts her, Lil has let nothing stop her dream of opening the Chance Wildlife Refuge, but something . . . or someone . . . has been keeping a close watch. When small pranks and acts of destruction escalate into the heartless killing of Lil's beloved cougar, recollections of an unsolved murder in these very hills have Coop springing to action to keep Lil safe.
Lil and Coop both know the natural dangers that lurk in the wild landscape of the Black Hills. But now they must work together to unearth a killer of twisted and unnatural instincts who has singled them out as prey.

The story was okay and kept my interest. I found the characters okay, too. But the "he hurt me" relationship struggles went on a bit too long for me.
This was a well written and well read book, but the production has way to many flaws. Words and sylables were dropped out. You could still understand and follow the story but with the current technology this should not be happening.
I listened to this book on a road trip and loved it. It was my first Nora Roberts read, and I really enjoyed. It's one of those stories that could have went on and on. Maybe a sequel could happen.Hint Hint
Very slow start to a tiresome relational conflict and an anti-climactic ending make this book mostly tedious.
Other reviewers blame the narrator but the material would probably be hard for anyone to salvage.
Oh man... it took all I had to finish this audio book! It was like many of the other reviews comments, predictable, tedious and boring to the very end. The only redeeming quality was the fact that... what fact?
The book failed to deliver after what seemed to be a very promising read in the beginning. Maybe it was not meant for a male reader. Sorry!
This story as I kept listening reminded me of my daughter because she is studying psychology of animals an is wanting to have a safe place for wild animals and all animals she has away to go but it is her dream. I hope her dream of helping animals and being able to study them goes as well as this story ended.
I am a big Nora Roberts fan, so was looking forward to listening to her latest... the core of the story was interesting, but the book was SO long, and the telling very slow... if I hadn't had a couple of long car rides, I don't think I would have finished listening to it, because frankly, I lost interest.
I usually enjoy Nora Roberts but I felt this story dragged and focused on the relationship of the main characters more than what you knew was going to happen eventually. When it did happen, it was not a surprise and the ending was anti-climatic.
I was disappointed in a story I thought would be very enjoyable.
