Christmas in Rose County
Amber Root & Ellen Wilder
Rose County #1
Romantic Suspense, Holiday Romance
Four months after Shannon O’Riley and her daughter were taken hostage, an opportunity to escape finally presents itself, sending the pair out into a cold December night with nothing more than two thin blankets and a few items of clothing, a small amount of cash, and the little girl’s teddy bear.
Sheriff Karl Muller’s quick stop at the local supermarket went from grabbing a few groceries to taking an unconscious woman and her frightened young child to the county hospital, adding a new case to his workload. As Karl learns more about Shannon and her captor, his want to find the monster grows, as does the urge to keep them safe.
Despite the terror that lies ahead, Shannon and Karl quickly find themselves denying their growing attraction toward the other. When things go from bad to worse, Karl fights to keep his feelings in check while protecting the woman and her child who are stealing his heart.
