I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart.
My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a week-long wilderness retreat.
She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner bad-asses.
It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was.
Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears.
I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life…and my heart as soon as I ventured into the unknown.
I was a pro at hiding from my feelings but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl.
Retreat is a standalone novel, the first in the Getaway series which centers on the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women that dare to love them.
These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.
Cyrus Warner is the oldest brother, and he redefines the term "cowboy"! He feels more at home behind the desk of the business but he goes on the trail with the last group when the middle brother, Sutton, a single dad gets called away at the last minute. Cyrus is saddled with an unusual group of tourists, including Leora (Leo). The story is told from Leo's perspective, and it is fantastic. Leo is a city girl, through and through. Leo comes with her friend Emrys (Em) to get away after a nasty breakup with her boyfriend.
This isn't the typical boy-meets-girl story. This is action packed, mystery inclusive, cannot stop reading, romance thriller. The sparks between the couples is enough to start a forest fire. Cy may not look like a typical cowboy, but he is John Wayne cowboy through and through. I can't wait to read Escape. This is the beginning a new series and it is fantastic!
