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.

    "Very Disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    I read everything Linda Howard, she is one of my favorite authors. Is this an older book that's been reworked? The writing was sophomoric, the plot had promise but never delivered, and the narration was awful. I would suggest you save your credits and try a different Linda Howard novel.

    "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.

    After starting this book adventure based on my long drives, it has become an obsession, a method for relaxation and enjoyment.

    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.
