Suspense-filled and Romantic! Nothing will stop a McAllister cowboy from protecting the woman he loves.
Hannah Hudson has a distorted view of home and family due to her odd, impoverished upbringing. She longs for her own Happily Ever After, but she’s willing to settle for escaping the Phoenix heat and her dreary job. Then, along comes a miracle, and her life is changed forever. With her heart filled with hope, she heads for a ranch in the cool hills of Colorado.
Shortly after arriving, her luck runs out. A tragic accident occurs—or was it a murder? A troubling reality sets her reeling. She’s alone. There is no Dairy Queen, no Circle K along the winding mountain road that links the remote ranch to the nearest town. The seclusion of her new world is frightening.
Trace McAllister, a wise, local cowboy, shows up and helps her learn the ropes around the ranch and in the bedroom. Love is in the Rocky Mountain air. A brilliant cattle dog and an intuitive palomino horse add fun and excitement to their days. But their fast-blooming chemistry is fraught with conflict, secrets, and a relentless, unidentified evil.
A brilliant cattle dog and an intuitive palomino horse add a touch of fun and relief from the conflicts and danger that keep popping up.
“Rohman steadily builds tension, stringing together unnerving scenes and introducing intriguing coincidences to keep readers engaged.” — Kirkus Reviews
