Publisher's Summary

Bailey Wingate's scheming adult stepchildren are surprised when their father's will leaves Bailey in control of their fortune, and war ensues. A year later, while flying from Seattle to Denver in a small plane, Bailey nearly dies herself when the engine sputters - and then fails.

Cam Justice, her sexy Texan pilot, manages to crash-land the aircraft. Stranded in the wilderness, and struggling to douse her feelings for the ruggedly handsome man by her side, Bailey begins to wonder whether this was a mere accident.

Sure enough, upon her return to civilization, Bailey's suspicions mount: Who tampered with their plane? Who's trying to reunite Bailey and her husband in the afterlife?

Trusting her life - and heart - to Cam, Bailey must outwit a killer who will stop at nothing to finish the job.

    "Great survival romance"

    When I was (much) younger, I did some backpacking in some very remote areas. So I enjoyed this story a lot. The whole "strangers struggling to survive under terrible conditions and falling in love" plot was great fun. And I feel like she did a good job of it. I really enjoyed seeing the heroine figuring out how to make do with what was on hand in order to survive. And I enjoyed the way the two of them worked together, and I liked the way they verbally sparred with one another.

    In short, I liked this book. A lot. Try it. I don't think you'll regret it.

    Story
    "More a survival story than a romance."
    What did you love best about Up Close and Dangerous?

    The characterization was good. Like many of Linda Howard's novels, it gives you a detailed look at the main characters thought process.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are really only two characters through most of the book, Cam and Bailey. I liked them both. They came across as very real. Linda Howard has a knack for putting normal people into unusual situations and letting us watch the outcome.


    Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many of her performances and loved them all. I find she has a nice range and I never catch myself cringing at her male/female voices as sometimes happens with other narrators.


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

    I found i had a hard time putting this down. Or turning it off as the case may be. I wanted the drive to last longer so I wouldn't have to pause the book.


    Any additional comments?

    The romance itself felt rushed. There was a nice twist at the end.

    "Interesting Story -- Great Narrator!"

    Up Close and Dangerous is not a predictable story, but a well written story of survival, romance and mystery.

    Although fiction, it's very believable, as a person never knows what they are capable of until circumstances necessitate a need for strength beyond what's normal, as in this story.

    Natalie Ross gave a wonderful performance.
