Professor Charlotte "Charlie" Reynolds assumes that weather is the only thing she has to worry about when she leads the last backpacking group of the season up Tempest Mountain. Joined at the last minute by sinfully sexy Jake Nelson, Charlie is caught up in a dangerous whirlwind of nature, drug trafficking and a man she can't seem to resist.

Agent Jake Nelson knows his latest mission to secure evidence will be dangerous and potentially put the entire group of hikers at risk. When the feisty Dr. Reynolds catches his eye, he's torn between the need to protect and the desire to possess.

This story began as a serial novel at my blog, The Variety Pages in the summer of 2009. I created the plot "out of thin air" using Holly Lisle's Create-a-Plot course, and the action just never stopped. When the serial ended, I decided to revise and edit it into a novella, and I'm pleased with how it turned out. I hope you enjoy meeting Charlie & Jake, and sharing their adventures.
