"You can't go wrong picking up a Susan Fox book." --Romance Reviews Today
In her latest contemporary romance, Susan Fox welcomes readers back to Caribou Crossing, the ruggedly sexy Western town that seems made for starting over. . .
Brooke Kincaid knows second chances don't come cheap. She's spent five years repairing past mistakes and making her life in Caribou Crossing steady and predictable. But now a stranger's Harley has shattered her fence and her peace of mind in one swoop. Brooke is drawn to everything about wounded undercover cop Jake Brannon--his raw masculinity, his tenderness, and the undisguised desire that makes her feel more alive than she's ever been.
By rights, Brooke should curse Jake for complicating her life. Instead she's offered him a place to heal and a cover story as he searches for a wanted man. Jake knows she's vulnerable, but she's also strong, kind, and hotter than hellfire. It's a combination that could make even a die-hard loner long to put up his boots and put down roots at last, and show her just how good a second chance can get. . .
"Smart, sexy, funny and touching. I loved this book!" --Susan Wiggs on Home on the Range
Fox follows Home on the Range (2013) with an entertaining romance starring Brooke Kincaid, aged 43, a recovering alcoholic living with bipolar disorder, and redeemed mother of the first book's hero. Dedicated to keeping herself stable, Brooke is shaken when RCMP corporal Jake Brannon crashes through her fence on his motorcycle, bleeding from a gunshot wound. He needs help with a drug-related murder investigation; she knows Caribou Crossing, British Columbia, and can give him valuable inside information. Their inconvenient attraction is swiftly resolved by sex that demonstrates Brooke's increasing self-confidence and Jake's unconscious desire for family despite believing himself incapable of love. Jake sees Brooke more clearly than she sees herself, and Brooke teaches Jake that he is worthy of affection. Their realistic romance is emotionally engaging, particularly their pain after Jake leaves Brooke to return to undercover work. Fox's unconventional heroine and successful blending of thriller elements with smalltown romance elevate this offering above its predecessor.
