Publisher's Summary

Trapped with a woman whose scent tempts his wolf...

When smokejumper Carl Jensen’s parachute accident leaves him with a badly-hurt leg, he's forced to take shelter on a remote mountain ranch. The ranch's owner, a lush, curvy woman, intrigues him. He’d like nothing more than to keep her warm through the cold nights.

Too bad Michelle wants nothing to do with him.

Maybe that’s because she saw him shift from wolf to human. Or maybe because she guards a fragile heart.

When Carl coaxes a kiss from her tempting lips, his wolf demands that Carl claim her as their fated mate. In that instant, Carl realizes he must find a way to stay with her and woo his woman. 

But when an evil bear shifter threatens Michelle, Carl must set aside his plans for a slow seduction.

Now that he's found his true mate, he’ll fight to the death to protect her.

Can she resist the sexiest man she’s ever seen? 

Michelle Hernandez came to the mountains of Colorado to heal her broken heart. After a bitter betrayal and divorce, she’s sworn off men. On her Rocky Mountain ranch, she cares for the younger brother she’s taken in. Together they try to keep her business afloat.

Not easy when something - or someone - keeps ruining her fences and attacking her livestock.

Or when a handsome, rugged smokejumper crash-lands on her ranch and needs a place to recuperate. Michelle tells herself she can resist the wolf shifter even though he’s the sexiest man she’s ever seen. She’ll keep her distance and ignore his promise to protect her.

But when Carl claims her lips, her world tilts. Can she take a chance on a wolf shifter who promises forever?

Hard Landing

This was a great start to the Rocky Mountain Smokejumpers series. I love stories where the woman doesn’t want anything to do with the man/shifter but how long will this last? Beth Roeg did a great job with the narration. I received this this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

WELCOME TO BEARPAW RIDGE!

You will truly enjoy all the books from Ophelia Sexton's BearPaw Ridge. I found the boxed sets before covid and I am so happy I did! I seem to be stuck, that is, I can't seem to start new books and I have a few that I've been waiting for. Maybe too much on my mind. so, for me hanging out in BPR has been keeping me sane. Since I read and listen to these books while sewing masks, I don't have to worry about what happens next. the books have very explicit sex scenes. If you don't like them just skip over, I do. These are not indepth mind boggling books. just really good HEA BOOKS THE. END! BTW, the narrator does these books proud. Once again THE END

Sexy start to new series

I liked that their were facts about smoke jumpers randomly in the story. Carl gets injured on a jump and switches into his wolf to get back to his buddies. Michelle sees him near her goats and alpacas and shoots him. When he turns into a man she thinks she's losing it. He wakes up in her house and his wolf insists she is his mate. He struggles at first as his parents set up someone for him to meet. He ends up staying a few days and realizes she is having trouble with a bear. Also he does not like how her neighbor keeps coming on to her. Add to her problems her brother Beto and there are all kinds of problems to solve before a happy ending can be found.

Another winner

I have always enjoyed Ms. Sexton books about her bears and wolves. What a great place to live. (Love the bakery and the BBQ place.) Now I am enjoying her new series about the Rocky Mountain Smoke jumpers. I loved the humor. The story is well written. The characters are well developed. And the narration is great. I recommend this audible and the book.

Was good at the beginning, but ended corny

I really liked the idea behind the story at the beginning and for the most part liked the story about 4 hrs in, but that is where it lost me. Some of the big issues and conflicts of the story were resolved to easily. To many things were wrapped up in a big beautiful bow that was unrealistic. I’m all for a happy ending, but if it ends too easily and nicely it makes me lose interest. Also, how fast the fell in love was a bit corny.
