Jonah Gray Wolf is on the run from a man who wishes to use Jonah’s special talents for himself. Jonah has made very sure that he has never gotten close to anyone because he knows that if he does that person would be used against him like his father was ten years ago. Jonah stops in Little Top, West Virginia because winter is coming and he needs a place to stay and earn some money before he moves on again.

Luce doesn’t trust easily and her only true companion is her dog, Hobo. Luce has a stalker that she knows is getting more and more dangerous. Trying to get help from the sheriff didn’t do her any good so now she knows that this is something she is going to have to take care of for herself. What she doesn’t expect is to find someone that is willing to help. Now she just has to decide if she can trust Jonah. Jonah helps Luce when Hobo gets caught in a trap. Hobo doesn’t let anyone near him but Luce only now he is fine with Jonah which goes a long way to helping Luce trust Jonah.

What neither Jonah nor Luce expected was the attraction that they would feel for each other. Now they are going to have to find a way to get rid of the threats to both of them so they will have a chance for the future. Getting rid of Luce’s stalker ends up being the easier one of the two problems and taken care of quickly. Now they just have find out whom Jonah’s enemy is going to send after him this time and make sure that they don’t succeed because Jonah knows that this time they will use Luce against him and he knows that if he lost her he wouldn’t survive it.

This story really pulls you into the world of the characters with some twist you don’t see coming. You get to watch Jonah and Luce as they work through all that is going on gets you rooting for them to overcome all the obstacles in their way. With some great secondary characters that help this story come to life. This one is hard to put done once you start to read it.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
