THE DANGER WITHIN
When Layla Dixon returns to Colorado, she knows it's just for a short visit. But when she meets Michael Vance, her heart skips a beat. Michael has lost quite a few cattle from his ranch to mysterious circumstances. He asks Layla, a trained veterinarian, to help discover the cause, but an unlikely love kindles between the nomadic vegetarian and homespun cattle rancher. Valerie Hansen's The Danger Within (4) provides heartpounding action and heartwarming romance. The myriad characters from previous series novels can cause confusion, but down-to-earth Layla and Michael really appeal.
