Drake's Retreat--Out now!

Maggie Reynolds needs a place to hide. Drake's Retreat is the perfect solution. Nestled deep in the back country of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Drake Strong's couple's retreat is the ideal location for Maggie to regain control of her shattered life. But, convincing the intimidating resort owner to allow her to attend the retreat, without a partner, is the first of many obstacles she must overcome in the heart of the wilderness.

Drake Strong's responsibility to his guests includes keeping them safe from the dangers they may encounter at his retreat. When Maggie shows up alone and unprepared for his remote resort, his responsibility to her becomes much more personal than he had ever intended.

excerpt

"You'd better get settled and ready for supper," Drake's voice cut into her thoughts as he mysteriously appeared behind her. "It's getting close to five and Aunt Cammie always has the meal ready on time."

Maggie just about jumped out of her new boots and twisted around. "I didn't see you
behind me."

"You should be more alert. I could have been a bear," he growled as he carried the
crate of supplies past her.

"You are a bear Mr. Strong," Maggie made sure she spoke loud and clear as she
posted her hands on her hips.

Drake immediately stopped and dropped the crate to the ground. He stood tall and held
his back rigid to her for a moment. He turned to face her with a smile on his lips that didn't quite reach his eyes. He slowly stepped toward her and she had to make a conscious effort not to retreat. "I should warn you, Maggie," he stepped within the realm of her personal space and continued, "as your host, I can make your stay here pleasurable. Or, I can make it a living nightmare. Which do you prefer?"

Maggie closed the gaping hole in her mouth to speak, "P-probably the former, Mr.
Strong. I mean Drake. I apologize. My runaway mouth has gotten me into trouble more
than once."

Drake's eyes lowered to her lips. "I don't doubt that for a minute." His eyes turned a
shade darker as they made their way back to hers.

She moistened her dry lips. He watched.

Maggie fought hard to find her voice. "I've been a bit on edge lately. With all that's been happening..." Maggie trailed off. "Maybe we can start over."

"You're mistaken. There is no we," Drake said as he turned and picked up the crate. He
walked away without a backward glance.
