Book number four in the Wild Mountain Men series will be a combination of a new relationship, one between Cutthroat Police Detective Eve Miranski, Shane Nickels, and Fitch Anderson. While this story might be read as a stand-alone, it will have many people from the previous three books, and also plenty of mention of the unsolved murder of Erin Mills--an ongoing case in Cutthroat. Since this is the last story in the series, it will unravel the mystery, the motive, and the murderer of Erin Mills.
Eve Miranski is good friends with Poppy Nickels and will be staying at her house during the Winter party hosted by Poppy. While Poppy is outside checking on preparations, Eve will be inside changing for the party. When she hears noises downstairs and comes upon two men breaking into Poppy’s home, she will grab her gun and handcuffs to arrest them—while only wearing underwear. The men don’t fight her, but what a surprise when Poppy comes into the scene—of her friend, her brother and his friend. That will set this tale in motion. It doesn’t take much for Shane and Fitch to know they want Eve and pursue her—but she has been hurt, and avoids relationships. What will it take for these two men to change her opinion and give them a chance?
“We could start with a no-strings sex. If that was how she wanted to play it, to keep her heart out of it for now, that worked. Once we were in her bed, we could take our time and show her how real men treated a lady. To prove that we wouldn’t hurt her. That we were playing for keeps.”
Eve will leave them at the party and hide after they have an intimate encounter, but she is overwhelmed by the emotions, the raw sex-appeal of the three of them together, and the chemistry is more than she can handle. But what happens when she is on her way to Poppy’s the next day after a meeting, and runs off the road? Poppy will call Shane to rescue Poppy, but the men won’t take her to Poppy. Instead, they take her to Finch’s ranch, and they will continue what they started the night before.
“They might be two men who wanted me, but they were two different men. Unique in their own way. Yet both of them were attracted to me. Were eager to satisfy me.”
The story is mostly concentrated on the new relationship between Eve, Shane, and Fitch, but also has some flashbacks to the past. Eve will share with them about her reluctance to become involved with a man because of her ex-Chad and his abusive ways. She will learn a secret about Fitch, and that will set off alarm bells. The story is about learning to put the past behind you, accept that sometimes bad things happen to good people when they are trying to do the right thing and that happiness is worth taking a risk.
The murderer of Erin Mills will be caught; the town will be shocked but relieved to learn that a killer is no longer running loose, and Cutthroat has a new triad couple with Eve, Shane, and Fitch. There are explicit sex scenes that include ménage.
