As the new deputy sheriff, he's sworn to protect every inch of this rough terrain--starting with unraveling a mystery that has left Maddie a wide-open target. Maddie's as beautiful--and untamable--as the land around them. Like Jamison, she won't back down from danger. But desire that flares hotter than their tempers only raises the stakes when a fierce storm traps them in the high mountains.
Caught in a killer's sights, Jamison and Maddie must trust one another, because now survival--and love--are all that matter.
