He opened his home. She stole his heart…and his money. Many would envy veterinarian Russ Gray’s life in rural Montana’s wide-open spaces. Russ calls it lonely. In a country with more cattle than eligible females, he doesn’t envision his seven years as a widower ending anytime soon. Until a mysterious woman lands at his door in the dead of night, riddled with buckshot. Sarah Novak hates lying to such a kind, handsome man, but if an upstanding citizen like Russ finds out why she’s been three weeks on the run, he’d surely turn her in. Yet she can’t refuse his offer to let her stay until she heals, no questions asked. From the start they fall into an easy companionship, then teasing flirtation flares into an unexpected intimate connection. But no matter how right it feels in his arms, guilt tugs at Sarah’s heart. Russ doesn’t deserve what she must do next. When Russ wakes up with an empty bed—and an empty wallet—his first instinct isn’t to call the cops…it’s to catch her and find out why his urge to protect her overshadows all reason. Because he’s had a taste of real passion, and he’s not letting it slip away without a fight.

Great cabin romance! I love that Sarah and Russ were the sole focus. It allowed their characters to be fully developed so I was really able to root for their HEA. The romantic and sexual tension was pitch perfect and believable. There were some plot points that weren't so believable but I was too ...
★★★★½ stars! After I switched gears and realized it was an erotic novel, I loved it. Not you standard “hook-up” and nothing too kinky for me. Just lots of smoking words that burned up the screen on my computer. This one had an intriguing premise and a story with some punch when I least expected ...
I think this book is a "put up, or shut up" for anyone who's called for flawed characters, physical imperfection or morally ambiguous heroines. It defies a whole host of genre conventions in a way I found refreshing, but anyone looking for a placeholder heroine to indulge in female fantasy would be ...
