Main Characters: Mikayla Grey and Calvin Bartlett

Description from the book:

From the New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann comes a thrilling tale of romance and suspense, filled with all the surprise, passion, and mystery of a new love.

When Kayla Grey travels from Boston to Montana, the last place she expects to end up is huddled beneath a blanket of dirt in the middle of a fierce snowstorm. And the last person she expects to rescue her is the very man she’d come to find. Cal Bartlett was a true-blue cowboy, complete with a horse, and the most amazing eyes Kayla had ever seen. He was also the brother of the man who’d wanted to marry her. But she didnt’ discover that until it was too late – after they’d kissed by a roaring fire and Kayla felt a desire she’d never known. Cal could handle Mother Nature, but could he handle the news Kayla brought with her? That his dead brother might not be dead after all?

Cal couldn’t imagine why he was being tested in this way – irresistibly drawn to the woman his brother had loved. Now she was insisting he might be alive, asking Cal to join her on a dangerous search based on a rumor from a stranger . . . And torn between guilt and longing, Cal would do just that, hoping against hope that wanting this woman wouldn’t mean losing his brother once again.

My Thoughts:

It took me all of an hour to read this book. Kayla comes to Montana to enlist Cal’s help to see if his brother Liam is alive. She gets lost and is saved by Cal. Not having exchanged names, the two briefly give in to their attraction. When Cal discovers that Kayla is the woman his brother asked to marry before he died, Cal has difficulty dealing with the situation. He has always sacrificed everything he could for his brother. In hopes that a rumor about Liam being alive is true, Cal and Kayla travel to San Salustiano. Fortunately, Liam is alive. Of course, this brings added complications. Cal is determined not to get between Liam and Kayla. Of course, Kayla had never really loved Liam. Of course, Cal finally sees the light – and all’s well that ends well.
