Publisher's Summary

A new heart-pounding, suspenseful, and supremely romantic novel from New York Times best seller Mia Sheridan.

When wilderness guide Harper Ward is summoned to the small town sheriff's office in Helena Springs, Montana, to provide assistance on a case, she is shocked to find that their only suspect in the double murder investigation is a man described as a savage.

But the longer she watches the man known only as Lucas, on the station surveillance camera, the more intrigued she becomes. He certainly looks primitive with his unkempt appearance and animal skin attire, but she also sees intelligence in his eyes, sensitivity in his expression. Who is he? And how is it possible that he's lived alone in the forest since he was a small child?

As secrets begin to emerge, Harper is thrust into something bigger and more diabolical than she ever could have imagined. And standing right at the center of it all is Lucas. But is he truly the wild man he appears to be? A cold-blooded killer? An innocent victim? Or a perplexing mix of all three?

Harper must find out the answers to these questions, because the more time she spends with him, the more she risks losing her heart.

Thought-provoking & emotional

Mia Sheridan aimed this one directly at my core. The word that keeps coming to mind is depth. Many romances explore how love helps traumatized people to survive hardships and overwhelming loneliness, but sometimes the main character’s connection seems shallow, an insta-lust that isn’t justified as the story progresses. Sheridan really impressed me with the patience and care she took in developing Jack’s distinct voice and perspective as he learned about the world beyond his limited experience, and she gave Harper and Jack great dialogue as well as inner monologues. Their connection touches on something ancient and primal, and the writing admirably reflects their journey to accept all parts of themselves and each other. The narration was also excellent, especially in Jack’s chapters performed by Christian Fox.

Content warning with mild spoiler: There’s violence against humans as one might expect in a tale about survival, but some readers may want to know there’s a wrenching scene involving an animal. I waffled on whether to mention this, but I know quite a few people skip books entirely due to this type of content.

A HAUNTING & EMOTIONAL JOURNEY OF SURVIVAL & LOVE

Wow.. what a unique, unpredictable and emotionally gripping story this was as you learn what little boy Luke (aka Jack) went through to survive alone in the wilderness, what heartbreaking challenges he faced and what evil lies he was fed to manipulate him into becoming an unsuspecting pawn. Told in past and present chapters to give you depth and a true sense of what Luke endured to become the skilled 23 yr old survivor he is today.. and how he kept his humanity, sanity and his childlike naïveté. He’s kind and loving despite never being shown either.. and when he sees his mate it will change his life forever. Because she’s got a damaged backstory too with threads that will chillingly link them together.. but she will be the loving anchor he will desperately need when he eventually leaves his wilderness home.

The revelations, twists and non-stop action were thought provoking emotional minefields, the tenderness, passion and love between Luke and Harper was beautiful and Luke’s character growth and acceptance really moved me. The suspenseful breadcrumbs of clues was intricately woven together as the main and secondary multi-layered characters slowly pieced together a villainous plot, revealed a murderer and, despite a HEA ending, left the story slightly ajar to perhaps continue the plot.

Worth a credit? Although the story is totally implausible and obviously fictitious.. it’s still riveting and compelling stuff. And this tragic, touching, moving, suspenseful, tender, sweet and exceptionally well-narrated multiple POV story, IMO, would definitely be creditworthy.. but it’s another fantastic free Audible Escape listen.. so yay, cheers and celebrations all round.

Unique Tarzan type mystery romance

I really enjoyed this audiobook. I found the story of this child who survived in the wilderness and how he came to be there fascinating. Enjoyable characters, a little bit of a mystery, and some romance thrown in for good measure. If the book had a weakness it is that the end felt a little rushed. I was still happy with the ending, it just felt a little slim when compared to the rest of the book.

Great story

I truly enjoyed this story. I had been looking for a story that would hold my attention and this one did just that. Characters were fully developed. The story was well done even moving backward and forward in time. The twist and turns added to the and continued up to the end.
