Matthew Tucker is on his way back up to his cabin in the mountains when he is attacked by a mama grizzly. In order to survive, he jumps off a cliff into a raging river, unintentionally sweeping Shannon Wilde along with him. Fighting through rapids, waterfalls, and caves bonds the pair together in a way that Tucker certainly didn't expect. Especially when they are found five days after having gone missing and Shannon's reputation compromised. The mountain man finds himself married hastily to a young woman with a homestead, a flock of sheep, and more relatives than he cares to have. Forced to recover from his injuries at Shannon's cabin, Tucker soon realizes that someone wants to drive Shannon and her sisters off their land. Yet the culprit didn't count on Shannon having an experienced tracker as her husband. And Tucker gets mad when he is underestimated about those he cares about especially when he's starting to fall in love with his new wife.
I'm really enjoying this series. I love the humor in these books. And the circumstances that are causing the sisters to cast off their masquerading as men and find love.
Shannon was my favorite in the first book and I was delighted to read her story in this one. Especially learning of what she did during the war. I also enjoyed seeing sparks starting to fly between Bailey and Gage. I know their story is next and I'm excited about it.
Tucker was interesting. I actually found him rather charming really. I wasn't expecting the gruff mountain man to have a soft spot for Shannon's sheep, but he did. And his horse is pretty awesome!
Still the way Tucker and Shannon have yet to figure out to talk to each other is rather annoying. I kept wanting to shake them and force them to talk to each other.
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of historical romance, comedies, Mary Connealy, Karen Witemeyer.
