Kate Wylandabout this book: Two dead bodies. One dirty cop. Is she next?
Mikela Richards' morning run in the woods ends abruptly with gunfire, a man with a gun and a dead body. The next day she spies a police officer leaving her locked catering business. She then finds her office trashed and the man from the park lying in a pool of blood with her gun nearby. Already with good reason to distrust the police, she runs rather than risk being at the mercy of a dirty cop.
A week later, she encounters a Wyoming dude ranch owner who needs a cook and agrees to help out. She also meets Shawn Saunders, a Marine home from Afghanistan on medical leave. He recognizes the survival fear in Mikela's eyes—it's one of the things he's come home to forget. They both fight their attraction. He, because he needs to forget and heal, and she, because she's learned the hard way not to trust. When the killer finds Mikela, she must decide if she can trust Shawn and his ranch family or if she should continue to go it alone.
WYOMING ESCAPE was inspired by a stay at a Wyoming dude ranch. Even though we have horses of our own, my husband and I enjoyed the experience—the people, the laid-back atmosphere and the environment—so much we didn't want to go back to our pressured lives. So, I put aside the book I was working on and started writing ESCAPE. This way I was able to stay "on vacation" for the time it took to finish it.
ESCAPE is the first in a series of books set at the Triple H Ranch. I am also working on another series, with the theme of Horses and Healing. FOREWARNING, the first book in that series will be coming soon.
