Some people are just not cut out for ranching in the high country, and Baylor McCullough learned the hard way that his late wife was one of those people. They may not have been well suited for each other, but he will never forgive himself for not being able to save her life.
Being a detective is something that Mariah Ellis does for a living, and to appease her father, but it is not her passion. Her true passion is her art, but it is becoming increasingly clear that she feels another kind of passion for her number-one suspect in the disappearance of a prosecuting attorney.
If it were not for Baylor, Mariah would most certainly be dead, and in the course of her investigation, he saves her life on more than one occasion. She quickly falls head over heels, but something just does not add up. His wife’s death, the disappearance of James Endicott, and the repeated attempts on both of their lives, have her floundering for answers. She wants more than anything to clear his name, but neither of them may live long enough for it to matter.
Get hold of your reins, because you are in for one wild ride. This story begins with a blizzard and ends with bang, and is filled with one heart-pounding event after another. Baylor is rugged, tough, and thoroughly sexy, and Mariah, who may be just a little too innocent for a cop, is exuberant and fun to read. They make a fantastic couple, and their story is nonstop excitement clear to the end.
