Back of the Book
Framed for embezzlement and on the run from cops and crooks, Deanna Manetti is run off the road by a wild mustang and rescued by a rugged outfitter named Jones. If being stranded in a Montana ‘ghost town turned ranch’ with a guy who hangs dead animal heads on his wall can be considered rescue to the diehard Fifth Avenue ad exec. At least if she doesn’t know where she is, no one else does either.
Instinct tells ex-U.S. Marshall Shep Jones that this comely Duchess of Disaster to hearth and barn is on the run and that the sparks kindling between them are going to blow up in his face. He ought to turn her in before her past catches up with her, but Shep never shied from putting his life on the line before. The only difference this time is that his heart could go down with it.
Yep, that is pretty much the book. I was looking for a bit of a thriller, and judging by the back of the book you would assume that was what you would get, but that's not the case. I really think the fact that I just read another book where the girl was ran off the road by an animal and rescued, made me think "been there, read that". The book is a little long, but only spanned a few weeks. I had to read the last chapter a few times because it had so much detail, and overwhelmed with new characters that I could not keep up with what was going on.
