When her sister, Pippa, goes missing, Nella Freling tells her boss she’s taking time off from her job as a research librarian, hops in her sensible van, and heads south of the border to Montana. However, local police don’t seem too concerned about a missing woman living in her motorhome. So Nella will have to look for Pippa by herself, unless she can convince a highly recommended tracker to help her, but sadly the rude and angry cowboy won’t even listen to her at first.
But Nella can be persuasive.
The first time High Mountain Tracker, Fletch Boone, laid eyes on Nella, her ass was stuck in his grocery cart. The next time was at the ranch; she was wearing mud, head to toe. But when he catches sight of her a third time, hanging off a cliff, he can’t turn his back again. What Nella lacks in survival skills she makes up for in sheer determination. Unfortunately, neither of those is enough protection when bullets start flying.
Fletch has no choice but to jump in before the woman gets herself killed.
And that would be a damn shame.
Nella is concerned when she can’t locate her sister but what she perceives as the lack of interest by local law enforcement has her even more concerned. She doesn’t hesitate to put her life on hold and journey to Montana to commence her own search and hopefully convince the High Mountain Trackers to aid in her search.
After his military career came to an end Fletch has settled in Montana and divides his time between his ranch and the Mountain Trackers. Although his first meeting with Nella did not go well he is determined to protect her from herself as she isn’t about to back away from discovering the truth about her sister.
The characters are compelling, and the storyline is captivating as they take us on a romantic and suspenseful ride that will entertain from beginning to end.
