An attempt to salvage a failing relationship leaves city girl, Carla Benevito stranded, injured, and lost in the woodlands of Wisconsin. Starving, she struggles for survival even as she gives up all hope of ever finding the man of her dreams. After years spent conducting search and rescue missions for the Cooper Valley Fire Department, Jamie Roberts is resolved to a life as a bachelor with is partner--his only female companion--a gentle wolfhound named Pixie. But that was before a missing woman stumbles across his campsite ... and straight into his heart.
Another awwww-sound-inspiring, sex-fest with a pretty solid plot. I seem to have found another solid author to keep me company with her short stories.
This shorty was cute, incredibly unrealistic (come on, who falls in love after two days of boinking in the woods?), but sweet nevertheless. I want to know if this Cooper Valley truly exists, because if it does, I'm on my way there. It seems to be the town with most eligible, hunky, caring, sexy, one-right-woman men in the US. And they all seem to work either for the fire department or for the police force.
Out of the three stories I've read in this series, this was by far my favorite. It didn't have a stuck-up or mercurial heroine, it had plenty of humor, some outdoor sex, an ugly dog, and a HEA (in the making).
Loved it and can't wait for more.
