If only she can learn to trust again and is willing to make the right choice for her future. Yet when she takes a step in that direction, the last of Madeleine's world crumbles.
Fighting off a rogue bear that has terrorized the area is tough, but it's the least of her worries. Madeleine soon discovers she is not safe. There is a danger far worse than a restless bear. Someone is out to get her. People aren't what they seem. And she doesn't know who to believe anymore.
Set in the mountainous Pecos Wilderness of northern New Mexico; discover Madeleine's wild and desperate love for the Land of Enchantment, and the man who captures her heart there.
