She isn't afraid of the big, bad wolf.
But he's a little concerned about her.
When Uli's impoverished family left Russia for America, she was only ten years old. From that point on, she's been determined to make the American dream hers. When Headline Magazine offers the perfect story with which to launch her new writing career, Uli travels across Oregon to find out exactly how wolf and cowboy mix. As she finds her spirit guide in the wolf and her soul mate in the cattle rancher, a mysterious danger seems bent on finding her.
Movie-star handsome, Jackson Holt owns one of the largest ranches in eastern Oregon and like most ranchers, is none too happy with wolves crossing over the Idaho border near his livestock. The last thing he needs is a semi-environmentalist, journalist wannabe dogging his footsteps. Sure, Uli may be bright and sexy, but her need to prove herself and help her family threaten to lead her into the kind of harm he can't protect her from-when all he wants to give her is ... a place to land.
Love and Gold. Mystery and Passion. All famous mystery author Stanton Black wanted was to leave the flashbulbs of Hollywood behind. Hiding out in the wilds of northeast Oregon seemed like the perfect way to get over the attempt on his life while researching his work. His latest novel would draw on the history of his ancestors and the lore of gold country. Now, all he needed was a suitable tour guide. Special education teacher Maya Valentine was no tour guide. After the death of her parents, Maya has come home to Salisbury Junction for the summer only to have an ailing friend talk her into escorting Stanton around the area. As a pattern of crime around her and the newfound gold on her property leads to a real-life mystery, her relationship with Stanton turns to thoughts of romance. A romance too impossible to consider. "MAYA'S GOLD is a wonderful read, which I thoroughly enjoyed. This is a sweet love story with a hunky hero, a loveable heroine and a cozy mystery. Mary Vine weaves an interesting tale and beautifully captures small-town life. There's a wonderful balance of suspense, humor and romance. I'll definitely look forward to reading more from this author." Lisa McCaskill Romance Junkies "Mary Vine has assembled a fine cast of tightly-drawn characters in MAYA'S GOLD. The story glows with vividly told episodes that sparkle with humor, suspense and passion. Richard Mack Author of QUAIL SONG and AGAINST A WESTERN SKY
