Fiction. Romance. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:For breathless action, gripping suspense, and intense romance, bestselling author Linda Howard never misses a beat??and her thrilling new novel will have your heart racing.

In the charming rural town of Trail Stop, Idaho, accessible to the outside world by only a single road, young widow Cate Nightingale lives peacefully with her four-year-old twin boys, running a bed-and-breakfast. Though the overnight guests are few and far between??occasional hunters and lake fishermen??Cate always manages to make ends meet with the help of the local jack-of-all-trades, Calvin Harris, who can handle everything from carpentry to plumbing. But Calvin is not what he seems, and Cate??s luck is about to run out.

One morning, the B&B??s only guest inexplicably vanishes, leaving behind his personal effects. A few days later Cate is shocked when armed men storm the house, demanding the mystery man??s belongings. Fearing for her children??s lives, Cate agrees to cooperate??until Calvin saves the day, forcing the intruders to scatter into the surrounding woods.

The nightmare, however, is just beginning. Cate, Calvin, and their entire community find themselves cut off and alone with no means to call for help as the threat gathers intensity and first blood is drawn.

With their fellow residents trapped and the entire town held hostage, Cate and Calvin have no choice but to take the fight to their enemies under the cover of night. While reticent Cal becomes a fearless protector, Cate makes the most daring move of her life . . . into t

All of Linda Howard's stories seem to be filled with lots of dangerous people, hard-core emotions, and some really well-done writing. Oh, and let's not forget the sexy romance. This one was certainly no exception. The character of Cate was a strong heroine who holds her own when it comes to building a new life as a widow and getting out into the wilderness to help save the town. If you read many of this genre of books you will figure out fairly quick how it was going to end. You will laugh, maybe shed a few tears, but above all you'll cheer. ( )

This romantic suspense novel had all the things I hate most about the genre: two people falling in love in a matter of days while they face dangerous bad guys, a small town full of busy-bodies trying to get them together, various issues that could be resolved if people just _talked to each other_, a hero with improbable military skills that make him pretty much invincible, and a heroine who is quite capable, but acquiesces to the hero's idea of how things should go when push comes to shove. Also, the bad guys' plot was pretty laughable and unrealistic.
However, I didn't have a bad time reading it. Cate's rambunctious twin boys added sweetness and humor to the beginning chapters, even though they were safely bundled away as soon as the action started. Cal's improbable military skills were at least accompanied by an almost-believable explanation, the miscommunications were mostly between the bad guys and secondary characters instead of our two lovebirds, and Cate's being forced to use her rock climbing skills for the first time since her husband's death was a nice bit of character development. Oh, and the resilience and genuinely believable close relationships between the townspeople were nicely handled as well.
Not the best book ever, but not a waste of time, either. ( )

I was captivated by this romantic suspense from beginning to end. An endearing yet alpha hero, a clever capable heroine with the cutest kids and an exciting layered plot. Widow Cate owner of a bed-and-breakfast seems to always need her shy handyman Cal whose tool box is a magnet for her four-year-old twin boys.

Very suspenseful and great audio w dick hill playing the guys. Cal is an ex marine and Kate owns a b&b. The ending is a little anticlimactic but very good book ( )

This book is a special favorite of mine. I've read it many times and always find something to enjoy. I love the pacing, the plot, the characters of the whole dang town. They were funny and sad and resillent and courageous. This book is a keeper. ( )
