Publisher's Summary

As the middle child, Pepper Prescott's rebellious nature helped her survive when her parents disappeared and she and her siblings were sent to different foster homes around the country. Now an independent young woman, Pepper finds herself on the run after witnessing a shooting. Fearing for her life, Pepper flees to the only place she ever considered home and is shocked to find her old lover, Dan Graham, living on the remote mountain ranch.

A battle-hardened ex-Special Forces soldier, Dan no longer strikes Pepper as a man she can trust with her secrets, her life, and her love. But as long-simmering desires flare into a deep, sensual passion, Pepper realizes the only way she can reclaim her life is to ally herself with the enigmatic warrior who's willing to help fight for her future by solving the mysteries of her past - and making her his wife today.

    "I enjoyed it!"

    Good second installment to this series. Just a tad bit long, but a very interesting story nonetheless. And the male lead had a "hot" factor that was off the charts! This book will make a lot more sense if you read it in succession to the first book of the series.

    Again, Natalie Ross does a really good job with the narration which, in my opinion, can make or break an audio book.

    "Excellent and engaging"

    The story was very well written and the pace was near perfect. I liked Pepper a lot even though I did want to shake her a time or two for giving in to her inner demons. Then again, having experienced what she did over so many of her formative years, it's understandable.
    Dan was extremely likeable, tough, and sexy with just enough jerk in him not to let Pepper fears overwhelm them.
    I would have liked more close calls from the General Napier angle...maybe a betrayal from a townsperson or something but that's just me.
    Lastly, Natalie Ross is a fantastic narrator, absolutely fantastic. I've listened to several stories she has narrated and all of her voices male and female are really well done.
    I'm looking forward to the next book in this series both for the story (tying up loose ends...who killed their parents and why???) and to hear Natalie Ross's interpretation of the characters.
    My advice? Get the book, heck, get the series AND listen to the audio. You'll be glad you did.

    "A great listen"

    I really enjoyed all three books in this series. I was lucky enough to happen upon the first book as my first listen in this series and was eager to listen to this one. With regard to the individual books it really doesn't matter if you have listend to the first one. This one, the second in the series truly stands on its own.

    "Fun, but unsatisfying"

    I've enjoyed Dodd's books in the past, but I've always read them. This was the first time I'd listened to one of her books, and I think that may have had something to do with my impatience at times. The book was light, fun, and enjoyable, but not something I'd go out of my way to recommend to friends. The mystery element was present but felt overly contrived and the romance was a little too stilted. However, I listened to it from start to finish and don't feel like I "wasted" a credit.

    "A little too long"

    I actually enjoyed this story, but nearing the end, I was getting very tired of the lead female and her annoying whining about her tough life and inability to love. This book could have been done better and shorter. The narration was good though
