Cooper Sullivan and Lil Chance were unlikely childhood friends - thrown together each summer when Coop visited his grandparents' South Dakota ranch. But with every year, their friendship deepened from innocent games to stolen kisses and the promise of something special... until fate, and a terrible tragedy, pulled them apart.
Twelve years later Coop - now a private investigator in New York - returns to the ranch to care for his grandparents. Though the memory of Coop's touch still haunts her, Lil has let nothing stop her dream of opening a Wildlife Refuge on her family's land. But someone else has been keeping a close watch on Lil Chance, and Coop's return has unleashed more than just old passions. There's a hunter lurking out in the Black Hills, and Lil and Coop have been singled out as prey...
It's not just a sure-fire formula that's kept the crown atop the queen of romance, as this thriller proves. The gushy love-conquers-all story of South Dakota wildlife biologist Lil Chance and ex-cop/PI Coop Sullivan takes a back seat to the taut, gritty chase of a serial killer. There's never a doubt that Lil and Coop childhood sweethearts who fall in love, drift apart and then reconnect will help each other mend their wounded hearts: "It was a good day, she thought, when you opened yourself to both the joys and the risks of love," Lil discovers. Nor is it surprising that a crazed killer will meet his match in feisty Lil. But this premier storyteller proves an ordinary love story can still win your heart, and even an inevitable confrontation may scare you silly.
