Publisher's Summary

Garrick Rodenheiser crashed, burned, and found a second chance when he crawled away from the wreckage of his life four years ago. And while he hasn't exactly escaped his past, he's kept it far enough away. Until trouble in the form of a rain-soaked, bleeding woman comes banging on the door of his remote cabin. True, she doesn't look like a reporter. But the word trust simply isn't in Garrick's vocabulary anymore.

Crossword puzzle creator Leah Gates has a few words of her own for her reluctant savior: adamantine, irresistible. She isn't sure if it's cabin fever, loneliness, or just plain fate that drew them so magically together. But she does know that falling in love is the easy part. Trusting the future is a different challenge entirely.

Likable

12 Across was predictable, but pleasant. It's definitely a "romance" and not so much suspense - thank you. A lot of the novels now have too much suspense in order to tell the story. I just want a true romance novel - this one was good.

Idiotic

Unless this book was written by a 12 year old - it's an embarassment. Two people meet, fall in love, and have a baby. The male lead is a recovering alcoholic and the feminine lead had a controling first husband - that's it for dramatic tension. It's jaw-droppingly bad.
