Raising The Stakes
By Karen Rock
Hiding from the world…
Tucking herself away in the Adirondack woods was supposed to keep Vivienne Harris safe. From dark memories of the Bronx, from danger, from entanglements. But when an orphaned bear cub raids her pantry and conservation officer Liam Walsh appears with news of poachers nearby, her private, peaceful world is turned upside down!
Suddenly two forces are drawing her out—Button, the cub who needs her help, and Liam, the man who's dead set against her rehabilitating the bear. If she can just win Liam's support, Vivie knows she can give Button a good life. And maybe find the courage to embrace a future with Liam…
Between The Pages
Animal lovers will adore this heartwarming story. The interaction between the characters and the bear were endearing. A beautiful romance builds between Vivie and Liam as they overcome emotional pain from their pasts. The Adirondack setting is picturesque and places the reader on the woodsy trail. This story will hold your attention from beginning to end. Speaking of the ending, I won’t give away any spoilers, but you might want a box of tissue handy. The ending is so great, I read it twice!
