Bailey Wingate’s scheming adult stepchildren are surprised when their father’s will leaves Bailey in control of their fortune, and war ensues. A year later, while flying from Seattle to Denver in a small plane, Bailey nearly dies herself when the engine sputters—and then fails.

Cam Justice, her sexy Texan pilot, manages to crash-land the aircraft. Stranded in the wilderness, and struggling to douse her feelings for the ruggedly handsome man by her side, Bailey begins to wonder whether this was a mere accident. Sure enough, upon her return to civilization, Bailey’s suspicions mount: Who tampered with their plane? Who’s trying to reunite Bailey and her husband in the afterlife? Trusting her life—and heart—to Cam, Bailey must outwit a killer who will stop at nothing to finish the job.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacqueline | 2/15/2014

    " One of my favorite tropes. Survival in the wilderness. Here the actions of the heroine to save them are detailed and what's more they make sense. The emotion and relationship that builds between the two characters seems realistic and believable. Totally enjoy this and highly recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 2/6/2014

    " I cannot stop thinking about this book. It was amazing, very surprising plot twist, the descriptions and realistic events and relationship progression really made this book above 5 star. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 1/23/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. There was just enough romantic suspense in there to keep a girl happy, and just enough mystery to keep you guessing until the end. I always figure out who the bad guys are but this I totally did not see coming. Great book!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine US | 1/17/2014

    " I felt relatively lied to by the description...but ultimately it was a decent read. Totally different than expected, but the reader of romance novels will enjoy it. It was nice to see a strong woman for a chance, instead of a simpering wuss -- or someone pretending to be strong until they find a man to take care of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy Walker | 1/15/2014

    " This book is sort of a throwback to some of Linda Howard's MUCH earlier books. They were quick romances involving a guy with some sort of military background and a woman both in some peril, usually in a jungle or in this case, a mountain forest. The woman usually ends up having to care for the man at some point...in this instance after a plane crash. They dislike each other at first, but always fall in lust and then love, they survive, the mystery is solved...the end. She is capable of writing much more comlex novels and has in the past. I'm not sure why the latest ones have gone back to that earlier formula. Hopefully we'll get more of her best work next time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 1/4/2014

    " Great light beach reading "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridgett | 12/30/2013

    " Again a good book, but not a great one when traveling via plane. I think Linda Howard has plane issues...maybe why I like her "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paulette | 8/13/2012

    " It had a good surprise ending but overalol it was only fair. Too much dialog. Probably don't need to read more of hers other than one that is still on the shelf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elise Logan | 2/10/2012

    " Okay but not great. Nice tension and some fun dialogue, but the whole premise was...outlandish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miss Kim | 1/7/2012

    " I've never read Howard before, and I was pleasantly surprised. Very good story and it was one of those 'can't put it down' books. It has a surprise ending, and a nice HEA. I recommend for any romance-suspense lovers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Todd | 9/2/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 7/26/2011

    " It is what it is, a quick read, random sex scenes, interesting story line and then a quick hurry up and wrap it up ending "
