Beautiful and self-confident businesswoman Rusty Carlson was hurt, terrified and alone with a man she feared. But one thing was certain – she would surely die without his help. Vietnam vet Cooper Landry had a deep-rooted grudge against beautiful women like Rusty. Experience had taught him they were takers. But he’d survived far worse dangers, and this time he’d be damned if he’d let her risk his chance for survival. But there were predators in the dense woods – both animals and human – and the odds were against them. They could handle that. What Rusty and Cooper weren’t prepared for was the discovery that they desired more than just survival….

I love books, it's my great escape.
Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors and paired with Joyce Bean I felt confident in making this purchase. This is another great love story by Brown and Bean is an excellent narrator. On a steamy scale with one being the least amount of steam and 10 being totally hot. This story gets a ten from me because of its sensuality and believable characters. I don’t know how Sandra Brown could make someone hopping around on crunches in the kitchen into a hot scene; well you will just have to hear it for yourself. I am about to do a rewind and listen to this one again.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
This is one of Brown's earlier books. Its a rerelease. For its time it is an ok read. Plot was predictable. I have said before its not the ending so much as it is the journey. If you are a Brown fan, you know how far her writing has come today. This story revolved around an aircraft crash and the two people who survive. Totally predicatable, but a good read nonetheless.
50 something listener loves ending the day lost in a good book.
Love story with a twist and lots of drama. Weekend read that i enjoyed on the deck
Probably, because I typically miss some of the details on my first read. But I wouldn't read it a third time. This is one of Sandra Brown's early novels, and while entertaining, can't compete with her later ones, like Lethal, my favorite.
I think it was when Cooper came crashing through the cabin door and threw a knife into the mountain man's chest.
I liked the one when Rusty opens the front door of her L.A. home and finds Cooper standing there, as well as the ones that immediately followed.
I have mixed emotions about this book. There were number of times when I thought Cooper was unbearably crude and verbally abusive. At the same time, there were moments when Rusty came across as unbelievabaly naive and not too bright. That was especially true in her failure to detect anything wrong with the two mountain men, and her faulting Cooper for killing them. It was also true in her failure to recognize, or at least admit, that her occasional and inadvertent nudity had any effect on Cooper. One begins to wonder what world she's been living in. Even so, some of their conversations were amusing and sometimes even funny. This was kind of a microcosm of the war between the sexes: a very masculine guy irresistibly attracted to a very feminine woman and the unavoidable conflict that engenders.
I always choose Sandra Brown's audiobooks. Her stories always keep you listening.
Nora Roberts - both enjoyable, easy listening. No brainers!
Narrators are always good. Joyce Bean, especially!
I usually laugh out loud - by myself!
Keep them coming!!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Sandra opens with a description of this classic core romance. If you love her current works, this is not it. S.B. first wrote as a romance writer with her stories having a H.E.A.E.
Cooper our hero, makes you want to go camping in the great outdoors.
when Cooper protects Rusty from raunchy father and son.
this is a classic I have re read in hard copy. Joyce Bean voice is a bit deeper in this recording than her 2008 reads and she is JUST wonderful in this book.
Joyce reads S.B. Witness and is fantastic. Try her read of Linda Howards Cry No More both are not to be missed.
It was nice to revisit a novel that was an actual romance instead of a sex manual . I found nothing missing even though most of the love scenes were implied rather than being explicit. This was an easy read and is just as satisfying as an audio.
I truly disliked this book. Truly. I wanted to like it but the voice used for the female lead drove me crazy. The plot itself was good but I couldn't help twitching at some of the gender role stuff. That might be a problem with the date the book was originally written, though. I can swallow that difference, I just can't handle hours of Ms. Bubblegum in my ear.
Tell us about yourself!
It was a good listen. Story believable. Good characters. Would read another Sandra Brown book.
