Not Without You
Book One, Silver Creek Series
Grad student, Lisa Richardson, scours the high country in search of her beloved boreal toad. The amphibian is in danger of extinction, a fate she is determined to change. Single-minded in her focus, Lisa doesn’t realize that she’s being followed by a mysterious stranger.
Enter McIntyre Walsh. Ex-marine with a heart of gold, this man lives and breathes duty. Protection. Content with his self-exile on a mountaintop in Colorado, he inadvertently witnesses a female hiker in danger, a situation he cannot ignore yet is unable to rectify. When their paths cross, Lisa and Walsh refuse to stray from their avowed goals and carry on–despite the other.
It isn’t until a killer ramps up his game that both are forced to relent. Battling the rugged terrain of the Rocky Mountains and an undeniable attraction between them, Lisa and Walsh must work together against the odds if they intend to get off the mountain alive.
“The adventure they encounter with a killer on the loose is daringly exciting! The ending when Walsh & Lisa got together was not how I expected it to come together but it was a great ending to a great book. Looking forward to the next in the series!” ~ 5 stars – Amazon review
“The author describes the scenery so well that I could (and did) imagine myself climbing the mountains, listening to the sounds of nature, and putting my hands into a cold stream.” ~ 5 stars – Goodreads review
