Publisher's Summary

When security expert Sean Wilson takes his wife, Amanda, along on a business trip to an isolated bed and breakfast, he's hoping to combine work and pleasure. But when four armed men storm the inn and take the staff and his wife hostage, the romantic getaway is over. A former army Ranger, Sean will do anything to save his wife, and when he finds the seven-year-old granddaughter of the innkeeper in the snowy woods, the situation becomes more dire. Sean must get the child to safety, but as the armed men become increasingly hostile and violent, Amanda's life is also on the line. Cut off from help and spurred by desperation, Sean and Amanda must make hard choices that could get them all killed.

Thriller Award nominee and bestselling romantic suspense author Melinda Leigh delivers a pause-resister story of love, fear, and desperate choices.

Great short story!

Tense and Thriller

Well paced story with engaging characters. The hero couple have a loving relationship and the villains are frightening. The setting was great. I once spent a romantic late spring weekend at a lodge on a lake in the Adirondacks. Story brings back good memories.

minus 5. one of the most boring books.

I suffered through it but it never got better. some books are harder to get captivated by. this book started and end entirely boring.

Odds against doesn't always mean losing

A really enthralling short story full of action and evil intent. Fast paced the excitement builds to a dynamic finale . Very enjoyable and a great listen on a short journey or rainy afternoon by the fire .
