A Montana man always protects the woman he loves.
He discovered her during a Montana blizzard, freezing cold, impossibly vulnerable, a little boy by her side. Undercover DEA Agent Beck “Trigger” Cooke is astonished to recognize Ashley Swan—award-winning actress, famous beauty—and missing for over a year. To keep her and the child hidden from a sadistic madman, he secrets the pair away to his isolated home.
No longer a prisoner, and protected at Hope Ranch, Ashley recovers and learns the tall, tempting federal agent may have a dark past, but it hasn’t destroyed his sense of honor.
As they shed past roles and find common ground, Ashley and Trigger can’t help but fall slowly, carefully, in love. But danger still lurks outside the boundaries of Hope Ranch, for until her crazed captor is brought to justice, and Trigger’s undercover past is laid to rest, none of them will ever be truly safe…
“What’s wrong?” Trigger asked.
The softness in his voice made Ashley look up at him. Way up. The man was so tall.
She found her voice under the wave of fear gripping her. “I know you don’t mean to, but you’re scaring me.”
“Look at me, Ashley.”
She sucked in a breath, found a shred of bravery from the tatters of her will, and raised her gaze to meet his.
“I will never hurt you.”
She fell into the depths of gray and flecks of blue in his eyes and drowned in the sincerity and promise she found there. Deep down, she believed him. Part of her needed to believe him, because she needed something real to hold on to before she sank any deeper into despair and the paranoia that everyone wanted to hurt her.
She nodded. “If he finds me, he’ll kill me.”
“He’ll have to get past me first.”

Review of Montana Heat: Escape To You
Review (5 Stars): Jennifer Ryan has always been one of my favorite writers, who has an amazing talent to create suspenseful romances that will keep you on the edge of your seat. With her new title, Montana Heat: Escape To You, she has two characters that have found each other at a time when they both needed someone to depend on. For Ashley, she was running away from a madman that has held her captive for almost a year and Trigger was trying to heal from his troubled past in the line of duty. Together, they were able to find love and a sense of peace with each other and Ashley couldn’t have found a better person than Trigger to help her deal with danger that she was still running from.
This book had everything for me and I was hooked from the very first page of this story. Escape To You is a well-written tale of romantic suspense and I know that you will be swept along with the story as I was. Ms. Ryan is definitely an author to watch in the future and I can’t wait to get my hands on her next book because I know it will be a winner.
