I liked the premise of an ex-Special Ops turned a hermit into the wilderness of Wyoming that finds a beaten-up woman stumbling on the road, takes her home, nurses her back to health, and helps her get rid of a pesky problem.

Unfortunately it dragged for too long before anything significant happened. There was no major buildup to the climax, no slow escalating of suspense and dread, everything was okay one moment, there was the big showdown (only a couple of pages length), and then it ended.

Rachel Lee is one of my favorite go-to authors! She writes old-style romances that are so satisfying I almost want to hide the books like a guilty secret!

This book in particular made my cry & cry...and then feel so sickeningly happy by the end, I thought I would go into a diabetic coma.

So many books fall flat for me, since I read around 1 book a day--that finding an author who can evoke such an emotional response is a real gem. Definitely must-read!

"This story was riveting. It was emotional. It took place almost entirely in the living room of Clint's home. You could feel the tension. I loved it." From a review posted by an member, to read more go here.

Part of the Conard County series, a favorite of mine. The hero, a disillusioned vet, helps a woman on the run from an abusive ex-boyfriend. The protagonists are intelligent and likeable, and the isolated ranch setting adds to the suspenseful atmosphere.

Wished there had been more of an ending. I guess it's so you read the next book. This is the first from this author I've read. I may read more from her cause the story was good!

it was ok. Not impressed.

Well it was ok, I like the ESP angle and it did give suspense which I liked. But I wanted more romance and if there had been I would have enjoyed it more.

It was good but I felt it was a bit Meh. Then again Im probably not really the target market for mills and boon

This was actually very good. The author managed to avoid a formula plot. The love story was touching and the suspense was great.

The author has really portrayed well about how the hero suffers from effects of the war but the book is really slow.
