Josy Warner has to get out of town—fast. A favor for a friend has plunged her into deadly danger—and sent the topflight fashion designer fleeing New York to a place where no one knows her name. The tiny Wyoming town of Thunder Creek may be more than the answer to a prayer. It could hold the key to her past…and the only family she has left in the world. The last thing she expects is to fall for a rugged man of the land—a handsome widowed sheriff who calls to the wild places in her own heart.
Josy Warner’s arrival in Thunder Creek has set tongues wagging and ranchers vying for her attention. But if there’s one thing Ty Barclay knows, it’s a woman in trouble. As his attraction to the secretive beauty deepens into fierce desire, Ty vows to keep Josy safe at all costs…even when the dangers of his job bring a killer after them. Now, with perilous night crashing around them, Ty and Josy are fighting for their lives—and a love that can lead to the most glorious future of all: forever in each other’s arms.
A typical suspense scenario receives a fresh spin in Gregory's newest contemporary romantic intrigue (after Thunder Creek), which gallops out of the starting gate when up-and-coming New York fashion designer Josy Warner gets a frantic call from Ricky Sabatini, her old friend from when they were both in foster care. Having been framed for a crime he didn't commit, Ricky needs Josy to hold on to a package, the contents of which could clear his name. The request is simple enough, until the danger escalates, forcing Josy to flee to Thunder Creek, Wyo., the home of her only living relative, her birth grandmother Ada Scott. The suspense gives way to tension of another sort as Josy becomes involved with Ty Barclay, the recently widowed town sheriff, and tries to figure out how to introduce herself to Ada. Gregory expertly weaves the various plot threads together, creating a tight, well-balanced story that packs an emotional punch. Though the contents of Ricky's package prove worth the wait, the happenings in Thunder Creek steal the show. Indeed, with its sage-scented beauty and down-home friendliness, Thunder Creek stands out as one of the book's most compelling characters. Fortunately for readers, Gregory packs her tale with so many twists and turns that life is never dull in Thunder Creek.
