Romance novelist Shiloh Gallagher is being terrorized by a stalker. Nearly every day for the past two weeks, she hears someone lurking outside her apartment door. She watches helplessly as the doorknob turns back and forth, slowly, menacingly, a hint of worse things to come. Her repeated calls to the police turn up nothing, leaving her powerless to stop the attacker. Frightened and running out of options, she is invited by an old friend to escape New York City and take refuge at Wind River Ranch in Jackson Hole.
Roan Taggart, the ranch’s foreman and a Marine veteran, is assigned to helping Shiloh settle into the employee living quarters and adjust to life on the ranch. Compared to the bustling pace of the city, and the circumstances that brought her here, Wind River’s peaceful, laid back style is pure bliss to Shiloh. And then there’s easy-on-the-eyes Roan, who shares her living quarters. But here’s the thing about stalkers…they keep on stalking.
McKenna’s latest Jackson Hole novel is Ranch Life 101, filled with lush scenery and homey comforts. Capable, patient and protective Roan is perfectly suited for vulnerable Shiloh who needs a hero to cover her six. The ever-present threat of the stalker simmers in the background, building suspense as the plot unfolds to a satisfying conclusion, McKenna style. Gotta love Karma.
