Publisher's Summary

In book 1 of this steamy new contemporary Western romance series by two blockbuster authors, a cowboy and a woman on the run take a stand and fight for love.

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.

Zeke doesn’t challenge Carlin’s terms: cash, dead bolts, and no questions. It is easy to see that she’s a woman in trouble. Problem is, he’s so blindsided by his attraction to her he can’t think straight. Zeke tries to stay all business, no complications - but that game plan is sabotaged the second Carlin gets under his skin. And when her terrifying past follows her to the ranch, Carlin faces a heartbreaking choice: run away from the man she loves, or put him in the crosshairs of a madman.

    "Linda Howard disappoints."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone in a coma.


    What could Linda Howard and Linda Jones have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Linda Howard should just write by herself. Characters were shallow and was boring.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Complete waste of a credit.

    "Great read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Running Wild to be better than the print version?

    Although I haven't read the print version, I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I have always been a huge Linda Howard fan.


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

    Loved the narrator's style. Added so much more than just reading the book would.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Dialogue humorous yet emotions of characters very apparent.

    Story
    "Get on with it"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not compared to her other books.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have included more about Brad.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Maggie Wheeler?

    Joyce bean. Honestly she is so much better.


    Do you think Running Wild needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. I'm surprised I finished the first one. The cover was the best part about the book.


    Any additional comments?

    It was the first book I have read by Linda Howard and Linda jones. I think Linda Howard should stay on her own.

    "Not Wild about the Story"

    I love Linda Howard's writing but this must be one of her older books that was updated. The story is good but the characters do not have the chemistry that some of her newer books seem to have. The narrator was good but not my favorite. Most of LH's books are so good you can't put it down because you want to find out what happens next...this isn't one of them.

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the characters. By the end of the book I was so totally absorbed, I lost my self and was yelling at my IPhone. I so love an action packed romance with a twist.

    "Horrible Narrator!! Good Story!"

    This was a very enjoyable book, however the narrator was horrible, their were times where I just wanted to turn off my iPod. The narrator made the main female character sound like a whinny 13 yr old brat.

    "Not enough story"
    Any additional comments?

    There was not enough story to fill 2 audio files; too bad since the essential story was interesting, but you get bored waiting for something to happen.
