Back Cover Blurb:
George Holloway has spent his life alone, exploring the treacherous beauty of the Colorado Rockies. He's the best survival expert Search and Rescue has, which makes him the obvious choice to lead Ellie Price through deadly terrain to find her missing father. There's just one problem-Ellie's everything George isn't. She's a city girl, charming, gregarious, delicate,small. And when she looks up at him with those big, dark eyes, he swears he would tear the world apart to keep her safe.
With a killer on the loose, he may have no choice.
Ellie's determined to find her father no matter the cost. But as she and her gorgeous mountain of a guide fight their way through an unforgiving wilderness, they find themselves in the crosshairs of a dangerous man in search of revenge. And they are now his prey...
I love how this story ties into the series as a whole yet also stands out on its own. Ruggle has woven an absolutely unforgettable tale that had me on pins and needles throughout. The plot was intense and well crafted. The suspense permeated every page yet never overshadowed the romance and chemistry that we find between the main characters.
I loved the differences between our hero and heroine and how they seem to balance one another. The strong, silent, and drool-worthyness of George had me swooning while Ellie’s bubbly, caring nature shook things up. The way that they were able to seamlessly work together made the story even better. Oh, and their chemistry? Something we’d all kill for in our everyday lives, yet also very believable. And you can’t forget the supporting cast. Lou is still priceless. Everyone that you meet (or reencounter from past novels) becomes a fast friend.
This story was excitingly suspenseful. It was everything that a romantic suspense should be. Ruggle is quickly becoming a go-to for romantic suspense.
