Product Description

Resort wrangler Brittany Lucas was looking forward to one last summer of freedom before returning to Chicago to work for her demanding CEO father. Instead, her independence is stripped when a new ranger restricts park access while he searches for a poacher killing animals in Rocky Mountain National Park. She understands Tall, Dark, and Sexy has a job to do, but his cocky, my-way-or-the-highway authority fuels her resentment.

Ranger Joel Morgan is used to having the upper hand in all his cases, so he’s thoroughly frustrated by the beautiful, stubborn blond complicating the hell out of his investigation. The constant desire to kiss her smart mouth shut isn’t helping matters.

Sparks fly as the two fight each other for the upper hand while doing their best to resist a sizzling chemistry that refuses to be ignored. Then the stalker turns his sights on Brittany, and Joel discovers he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her—even give his own life.


“Find anything interesting up there?” Randy Gifford asked.

“Just a camper in a restricted area.”

“You think it could be the guy you’re looking for?”

“It’s a woman. Camping where she shouldn’t be. I’m going to make sure she leaves in the morning, then return to my original route.”

“You may want to reconsider. That storm front I mentioned earlier is moving a lot faster than expected. It’s over the Never Summer Mountain Range and will reach your area tonight. Temperature’s dropping, too, so be prepared.”

Joel surveyed the heavy, gray clouds he’d noticed earlier. “What are they forecasting?”

“If it keeps moving, a couple inches. If it stalls, up to a foot.”

He muttered a curse. That would be a problem. “If that happens, we could be up here for a few days, so yeah, scrap the original route. The closest trailhead is Longs Peak, can you get someone to drop off my truck and trailer over there in the morning?”

“Will do.”

Five minutes later, he rode back into Brittany Lucas’s camp as she threw a couple pieces of wood on the campfire that’d been nothing but banked coals when he left. She brushed off her hands before bracing them on her hips.

“Now what?”

He dismounted to unpack his gear. “I’ll be camping here with you tonight.”

“Ranger Morgan, let me assure you, I have every intention of leaving in the morning.”

“And until then, I’ll make sure you stay safe.”

“I don’t need you to babysit me,” she insisted, irritation flooding her voice as she sat by the fire.

Ignoring the fact she’d heard him earlier, he met her stare over the top of Nobel’s saddle. “You got a gun?”

Her gaze faltered. “No.”

“Well, the poacher does, so I’m staying.” That shut her up, until he tossed his sleeping bag inside her tent.

Trust makes all the difference when love and danger collide.

This was quite dramatic & suspenseful. A love/hate thing going on with the H & h. I didn't quite connect with the characters but it wasn't too bad.

Amazingly perfect romantic suspense. I did not put this book down once I started it. Story line very well developed and the characters will make you fall in love. Truly enjoyed this author's writing style and am looking forward to reading more. I love that it is a series but also appreciated the fact that it had NO cliffhanger. Perfect amount of suspense and romance . Love it and highly recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm debating on whether to continue... 25 October 2015
By Bibliophile - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm on page 98 which is the beginning of chapter 13 and it's getting harder and harder to stomach the male main character of this novel, notice I didn't say hero? I've never encountered a more boorish, conceited, hot-headed and judgmental lead.

I happen to agree with another review in regards to his manhandling of the heroine. I don't find it sexy at all. I think I've made up my mind not to go any further reading this one even with the mystery (which really isn't one) of who is illegally killing animals in the park unsolved. I don't see how this guy could ever redeem himself or how the heroine should ever find it in her heart to forgive him for manhandling her but I know the author will allow it, and this won't give me my HEA.

I can't recommend this one and will delete it from my kindle. I'm glad it was free!

2.0 out of 5 stars Evidence of Trust 3 April 2015
By Lily - Published on

The story moved way too slowly for me; I did not finish the book. Ranger Joel Morgan decides that he needs to protect Brittany Lucas, a young woman who is camping out in the park. He believes her to be a rich, spoiled city girl; in fact, she is the daughter of a rich man, CEO of Lucas Technologies. She is taking some time away to soothe her hurts; rejection of her father and breakup with her boyfriend, who has just received a promotion at her father's company. Brittany is helping a friend, Mark Jennings, at his ranch in Colorado; she is training some of his horses.; so she considers this an opportunity to pull away from her hurt. The parts of the book that I read were so predictable; it just did not hold my interest. Actually the word hopeful doesn't describe the mood of the book; but I kept trying to feel hopeful that the book would eventually draw my interest-didn't happen.

An excellent story with the setting in the Mountains of Colorado and the National Park Service. Someone is killing the animals for sport, taking the horns and leaving the bodies. A special investigator has come to the high country to find the killer. The surrounding ranches near the parks, have taken on quests who they provide horses for day and overnight trips into the National parks. The wranglers for the ranches, both male and female make sure the quests have a great time and the accommodations are everything their quests need to keep them safe and happy. Most of the seasonal hires are college students who enjoy this way of living and come back year after year to take on these responsibilities. Is the killer one of them?

5.0 out of 5 stars very good book 8 September 2014
By Sheriea - Published on

This is the first I read this author. I was impressed. The character development was good, you came to care about the characters. She was actually running two stories here. One was their budding romance and the sexual tension. Which I liked how they didn't just jump into bed but actually got to know one another. The one sex scene was not erotic, which is a nice change. I personally like somethings left to the imagination. The second story running was who is killing the animals. It kept me guessing throughout the book. It made me have to curb the desire to scan ahead to find the culprit. I didn't, I was good but it was hard. This part of the story made the book hard to put down.

If you like a PG romance with a good plot and who done it, you will like this story. If you like a book without the vulgar words or explicit sex scenes you will love this book. Even though it is the first in a series it does not have a cliffhanger. The writing style is similar to a Catherine Anderson type of story, except the heroine is not hiding or been abused. I hope the rest of the series is as good.
