Releasing March 5th
Frontierwoman Penny Scott and a Pinkerton Agent from Philadelphia John McCall are kidnapped and taken on a twisting turning ride, deep into the wilderness. He’s unconscious. She’s blindfolded and under a tarp. They manage to escape but running for their lives takes them over a cliff, down a river and finally into a violent rainstorm.
They are so lost.
When Penny manages to drag them both out of the wilderness a week later, they find the whole state of Nevada searching for Penny and her kidnapper…John.
Now a fire-and-brimstone breathing sheriff–goaded by his fervently scandalized wife (a man and a woman, alone together, for DAYS!!! And not even ashamed??? And right in front of the woman’s seven children???) Either John’s a kidnapper and needs to be hanged on the spot…or there needs to be a wedding.
A week spent with the city boy about drove Penny mad. Now she’s supposed to spend a LIFETIME WITH HIM??? After enough hesitation to seriously annoy John, Penny agrees to the wedding.
John’s not sure where that law about a hanging or a wedding is in the Nevada state constitution or the Bible. But right now the sheriff’s got a gun and a noose and John’s got to marry a woman in leather britches, with a big old gun and a mean attitude…especially toward him.
Now, unhappily married, they’ve still got a kidnapper to find. John may not know his way around in the woods, but he’s blue blazes investigating a crime and no one’s going to knock him out, kidnap him and almost murder him and not go to jail.
This is a side of her incompetent “husband” Penny’s never seen before. Now he’s the one who knows where he’s going and she’s the incompetent one being dragged along.
They were taken by a shadowy figure looking for evidence they don’t have and he’s still coming. Only by the time John and Penny are done, he’s going to wish he’d’ve never started this whole thing.
They must bring a powerful, ruthless man to justice, even as this city man and country woman fight a very inconvenient attraction to each other.
In my research for this book I just grew deeply fascinated with the extend of the wilderness in this country. Could you do it? In a lush land, in good weather, with a gun and a skinning knife…with food all around you although in very raw form….could you survive? For a week?
