Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Devney Perry writing as Willa Nash comes a small town Montana romance.

Duke Evans didn’t expect to find a beautiful woman in a staring contest with a bison on his favorite hiking trail. He also didn’t expect to see her again after rescuing her from the surly beast. As the sheriff in Calamity, Montana, he’s had his fair share of surprises but none as pleasant as pulling over a shiny black car and finding his mysterious hiking companion behind the wheel.

Only she lied to Duke. She gave him a name as fake as her hair color. According to her driver’s license, her real name is Lucy Ross, the famous country music singer whose sudden disappearance has been a hot topic on the radio over the past two weeks.

He’s not sure why Lucy lied about her identity or why she’s in Calamity. And she’s not talking. Instead, she offers him a bribe to keep her secret.

Duke doesn’t want her money. He wants to know why this beautiful woman is on the run. And as long as the star shines on his badge, he’s going to find out.

Nothing orig'l; storyline missing, erotica present

Started out interesting, then the storyline waned and was finally gone, and it turned into erotica. The characters were no longer respectable, admirable, intriguing...Narrators were good, but the material was just, well, same old, same old. Wish there had been more character development, more organic relationship building, characters that weren't one dimensional. Really, do authors think we enjoy a book simply because the author can write erotica? ANYONE CAN WRITE EROTICA. A good author knows his or her readers want to be invested; but when the author can't even invest in his or her own characters, it's time to throw the book back.

*Sigh*...Jason Clarke Need I Say More!!!!

This is the first book in a new series by Willa Nash. This story was great. Willa put a new spin on the famous heroine trope, and I totally approve. I really liked Duke and Lucy's banter and the build of their relationship. As always, the side characters are amazing, present, but they don't take away from the main characters. I enjoyed the suspense in this story as well. I read this book in one sitting, and I don't even regret skipping a meal or two. I was totally immersed in this story, and I cannot wait for book 2. The narration in this book is amazing!! Ava and Jason make a great pair, and make these characters seem so very real. Dive in, you won't be disappointed!!!!

Under the covers

Sadly a formulaic tale so often found in chic-lit, beautifully narrated but failed to hold my interest past 2 hrs. NOT FOR ME.
