As the middle child, Pepper Prescott's rebellious nature helped her survive when her parents disappeared and she and her siblings were sent to different foster homes around the country. Now an independent young woman, Pepper finds herself on the run after witnessing a shooting. Fearing for her life, Pepper flees to the only place she ever considered home and is shocked to find her old lover, Dan Graham, living on the remote mountain ranch. A battle-hardened ex-Special Forces soldier, Dan no longer strikes Pepper as a man she can trust with her secrets, her life, and her love. But as long-simmering desires flare into a deep, sensual passion, Pepper realizes the only way she can reclaim her life is to ally herself with the enigmatic warrior who's willing to help fight for her future by solving the mysteries of her past - and making her his wife today.

"Pepper Prescott was separated from her other siblings as a child when their parents were mysteriously killed. She has grown up street-smart but is feeling abandoned. When she witnesses a murder, she goes into hiding at her foster mother's ranch, where she must deal with her childhood love, who is now a soldier on a secret mission to trap international terrorists--in Idaho. This improbable, clichŽ-ridden story will be a big disappointment to Dodd fans, who are used to better fare. It's not helped one whit by Natalie Ross's smooth but uninspired narration. Although she puts plenty of energy into portraying the various characters, her uninteresting vocal differentiations do little to salvage the audio experience. A.C.P.
