So what's it about? :: As a white water rafting guide, Katie Gallagher must battle the forces of nature on a daily basis. When sabotage becomes apparent on a weekend rafting trip, Katie must determine who she can trust--and who has their own agenda. Hunter Malone has a mission on a business adventure trip on the Gauley River, a mission that didn't include a spunky guide who could handle the class-five rapids better than he'd ever imagined.

Content Sample :: Thunder crashed over the West Virginia sky. Clouds cast eerie shadows, foreboding and ominous. Katie Gallagher quickened her pace down the gravel path. The approaching storm interfered with her determined strides. Shadow, her Blue Heeler and ever-present companion, trotted at her side.
She pushed into the store with Shadow on her heels, headed to the counter, and dropped onto the stool. She flipped to this evening's appointment log and grabbed a pencil from the holder, rolling it between her thumb and forefinger.
Her elder brother Gabe's soft smile enhanced his tanned face. "Your group should arrive after seven tonight. Ready?"
Katie's gaze moved to the bank of windows across the front of the store.
Lightning flashed in the bright afternoon sky over the Gauley River. While no rain pelted the area yet, foul weather would arrive soon enough. Gabe adjusted the display rack of wetsuits a fraction of an inch, then hobbled back to study his handiwork, dragging his walking cast.
She scuffed the toe of her sandal against the tile, letting the shoe slip to the floor. "I still don't see why Christian can't take this group. I need to run the projection numbers for next month." Seemed like as of late, their younger brother constantly shirked his duties.
"We've been over this." While Gabe didn't sigh aloud, the implication was clear.
"But you and I aren't the only Gallaghers working Gauley Guides. Dad left the business to all three of us." She let out an exaggerated breath and tapped her pencil against the cash register. "I hate baby-sitting power
executives who think they can tame the river."
"It's not like I asked to have my leg broken, Katie. I'd do it if I could." And he would. Gabe carried the brunt of the responsibility for the family business. Good thing he had such broad shoulders. Katie didn't envy his load.
Guilt circled her heart, but the tight knot of irritation wouldn't let loose of her nerves. She had a stack of bills she needed to figure out how they were going to pay, and she wanted to check out the new equipment they'd just received. Besides, she yearned for some solitude after last weekend's trip with a group of rowdy college kids.
What's on the Horizon? :: A Christmas--themed romantic suspense novella should be releasing late October 2015!
