A week-long getaway…
City girl Claudia Cade’s carefree life is plunged into chaos when a camping trip with her brother in the national forests of Northern California turns into a deadly dash for her survival.
A solitary world turned upside down…
Nature photographer Shepard Olsen has resigned himself to a quiet existence, with only his dog by his side, until a woman in need of his protection shows up on his doorstep and throws his universe into disarray.
Two lives linked by tragedy…
Claudia is desperate to heal from her traumatic loss, but can’t stop thinking about her run-in with evil….or the grizzled mountain man whose quick thinking and good aim saved her life. When she shows up on Shep’s doorstep again, she finds she isn’t the only one who can’t move on.
… saved by bliss.
The two begin an intense, passionate relationship of Dominance and submission, pleasure and pain, but with dark memories haunting them and decisions about the future rapidly approaching, Claudia can’t help but wonder…how long can they be each other’s haven?
Point of view:
1st person. Alternating perspectives, clearly defined.
I love this book so much. I love Shep. I love Claudia. I love Shep & Claudia together. I might hate Rebekah Weatherspoon for putting me through everything that Claudia and Shep go through to get to their HEA – but it was glorious and I can’t find one critical thing to say about it. So, I’m pretty sure I love Rebekah Weatherspoon too.
This is a super gritty and angsty romance where, if it weren’t for a horrific tragedy, these two people should never have met. The road they travel – physically, emotionally, and psychologically is so painful and authentic. You can’t help to want to hug them one moment and smack their heads together the next. Are the sex scenes kinky & smoking? You betcha!
The ending was perfect and at the same time I feel like I’d read an entire series about Claudia and Shep. I’ll settle for more about Claudia’s BFF, Liz in Sanctuary.
This is the first time I’ve listened to Rolando Brown or Phoenix McKay and I loved both of their performances. McKay doesn’t have a lot of chapters, but she did a great job as Claudia. There’s some really emotional scenes for her and she really brings depth to those parts. Brown as Shep is so good. His deep, gravely, smooth delivery is the perfect fit for the mountain man. I will definitely be listening to this again.
