Ambrose’s latest novel brings us a strong hero, a sassy heroine and snappy dialogue that sizzles, along with celebrity, paparazzi, murder and a dose of mayhem all set in the Colorado Rockies. Add in a sexy romance and what you’re left with is one fun read that will keep you entertained for hours.
Cal Drummond rescues impulsive Maggie Larkin from a potentially dangerous situation after she breaks the nose of handsome reality TV star Rafe DeLuca.
