In her new romantic action adventure, Terry Odell spins her popular Blackthorne, Inc. series off into a new world of adventures filled with mystery and suspense. The Triple-D Ranch novels are set against the backdrop of a Colorado cattle ranch, where cowboys find love and danger while they're working the range.
Derek Cooper has left the violent life of an Army Ranger and a covert ops agent for Blackthorne, Inc. in favor of the more peaceful life of a cowboy, running the family cattle ranch in the Colorado mountains. However, when he rescues a stranded motorist, he has no idea this blonde pixie is going to bring violence to his doorstep - or work her way into his heart. Unable to resist helping her discover why she's in danger ends up with him unable to resist her...period. When they discover a potential bioterrorism plot, they'll have to put their attraction on hold while they search for a way to prevent it.
Sabrina Barton believes in second chances, and she's running a vocational culinary school to prove it. But when her brother dies in a mysterious hit-and-run, and she's beset by an unsettling series of accidents, she can't believe in coincidences. She goes in search of the one man her brother told her to seek if she ever needed help. Trouble is, the letter with that advice was delivered at her brother's funeral, more than 10 years after he wrote it. Will cattle rancher Derek Cooper be able to help her? And will she be able to resist this handsome cowboy who seems to be no stranger to violence?

I wasn't sure what to expect, it did sound like same old, same old.
Derek has left the Rangers to become a Ranger.
Sabrina is running from some un-known bad guy and searching for Derek.
It was not predictable, or boring and the Narrator did an awesome job with all the voices and characters
Sabrina was not at all what I expected, she is selfless and yet realises she has been selfish in many ways where her brother is concerned.
Yes she is attracted to Derek (who wouldn't be) but it flows and evolves in a very natural way and even gets a nice little bit of steamy happening very tastefully.
Sabrina also has her inner demons to battle and is not at all happy when guns and violence enter her life.
The way she handles all this, I thought, was quite realistic and really interesting to read.
Derek, D-man, hotness personified, whatever you want to call him is another well rounded, well written character.
Working his family farm after retiring from the Army Rangers, his story also un-folds with it's own demons and scars in a realistic manner.
His loyalties and work ethic along with his un-willingness to get back into that old life but the fact that he will help out for a good cause goes well together with Sabrina and her battle to get to know her brother and what he was involved in that has put her in danger.
There is some humour, some sadness, that bit of steam and excitement and it all comes together to make a read that kept me listening right to the end.
I really enjoyed it and will certainly be keep an "ear" out for the next instalment.
I'm new into audiobooks but now I'm hooked and listen to everything!
I'll listen to the rest of the books if they come out in audio but only if the story line isn't quite as bizarre. I liked Rachel and the cowboys but thought the whole biological terrorist group was a little hokey.
I liked the individual voices and they were all easy to recognize. She gets me into the action and I like the deeper voice in a female reader.
This a little too far-fetched for my liking but the romance was fun and the plot of special forces types turning cowboys was interesting. Maybe they could get involved in more believable investigations for the rest of the books.
It was a good strong narrstion but the story was a little far-fetched. It was fast-moving, though and could have done without the germ warfare extremist group.
The cowboy delta force characters and the good smooth voice that was easy to listen to.
Sabrina had a little touch of sass but was still scared and vulnerable sometimes. The cowboys were all likable and good voices.
I received this audiobook in return for an honest review.
