How can a hunting trip go terribly wrong?

Evie loves to hunt, and she's a better shot than any man. Scott is fun-loving and sexy--the perfect companion. But what starts out as a wonderful date turns deadly when they witness a terrible crime and must flee for their lives.

Evie and Scott begin their day laughing and teasing, but car trouble and a freak blizzard force them to seek refuge in a deserted farmhouse. Once they get a fire started, the farmhouse seems like the perfect--and perfectly romantic--place to wait for help. Until three strangers arrive carrying assault weapons.

When they witness a murder, Evie and Scott must escape back into the frigid, snowy darkness to hide from the criminals. Only by relying on each other can they survive.

A shot rang. Evie cried out.

“Quiet.” He pulled her to him, putting a hand over her mouth. “Shhh.”

She nodded.

Scott turned from her and walked to the window. Crouching low to make sure he wasn’t seen, he peered out the window. “My lord, one of them is dead.”

A shiver passed over her.

He turned to face her. “We’ve got to get out of here.”

“What if they see us? We’re witnesses to a murder.” Evie’s voice broke. “What are we going to do?”

“Be calm. We’re going to be okay, but we’ve got to go before they do see us.” He pulled on his boots, lacing them as quickly as possible.

“Where will we go? They’ll find us for sure. There’s no place to hide out there.”

“They won’t find us if we’re careful. It’s our only chance. Evie,” he said her name low, “don’t panic. Breathe. Right now no one is out there. Give me five minutes, then go out the front door and start running. Okay?” Scott waited for her response.

“What if you get caught?” She grabbed his arm and hated the fear that resonated in her voice.

“I won’t.”

Anxiety showed in his face, which scared her more. Slowly, she nodded, but her heart lurched, and she had to take a deep breath to keep from passing out. Fear spread through her. Her heart pounded so loud in her chest she thought it might explode.

Picking up her shotgun, she clutched it to her. Meeting Scott’s gaze, she whispered, “Okay.”
