Dark. Daunting. Unforgettable. Survival adds a demanding edge to love in the wilds.
Cara, a mountain guide with a hard luck past, and John, a doctor running as hard as he can from his own demons, become unlikely allies. Fire raging through the Sierras forces them away from their planned route and makes escape a dicey proposition.
Cara struggles to outwit the inferno before it's too late. John's long-denied psychic side escapes its bonds, refusing to be ignored any longer. He recognizes the fire for what it is: magical creatures bearing the worst news of all. Fire dragons want Earth for themselves, and they'll stop at nothing to make it theirs. Protecting Cara from the destiny that's finally hunted him down turns into John's top priority, but spirit guides shanghai him, forcing his hand.
He never wanted a woman in his life. Too many complications - but something about Cara touches his heart.
She was burnt out on men and vowed she'd spend the rest of her life in the mountains guiding clients - but something about John sings to her soul.
If they can survive the dragons that set the earth ablaze, a different kind of heat just might bind them to each other.
The fun part about this series is that you have no idea what you are going to get. All of these stories involve very capable women who are comfortable in the wilderness and the men that fall in love with them. However, that is the end of the similarities or connection. This story involves spirit guides, Shamans, and dragons.... yes dragons. The story wasn't one of my favorites of hers but as usual Ann Gimpel is an excellent author whose descriptions and knowledge of the great outdoors is out of this world and it was an entertaining listen.
