Lacy Buchanan sets out to prove she’s a tough cookie by swapping the mean streets of Manhattan for the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming for a week-long survivalist hiking trip. The last thing she needed was to get lost, forcing her to spend the hike alone with surly, too-sexy mountain man, Becker, who blames her for their predicament. After Becker saves her from a rattlesnake and calms her fears, Lacy has a change of heart and feels lucky to be in his experienced hands.
But Sam Becker isn’t really a hiking expert; he’s strictly the moneyman in Back To Nature Guided Hiking Tours and a last minute, temporary fill-in guide. He can’t believe his bad luck when his lag-behind charge—a mouthy, but hot, blonde bombshell—pulverizes their only compass, destroying their chances of following the coordinates to base camp. Yet something about Lacy makes him want uphold her ideal image that he’s her rugged hero and a man she can count on.
As Sam and Lacy attempt to find a way out of the treacherous mountain passes, their natural instincts take them farther away from civilized behavior and straight into the mating calls of the wild.
