Kerrie Gowen decided to take a position with the Parks Department in the early summer. She worked at Glacier National Park located in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Montana. She had a little apartment not far from work and she started to settle in to her new surroundings.
While working at the park, Kerrie met quite a few rangers that were kind and friendly to her. One specific person took very well to her and they started talking. His name was Dace Mitchell and he was one of the permanent park rangers. He sensed though that something was going on with Kerrie because she would always be a bundle of nerves around him.
As they were both working and getting to know each other, they both started developing feelings for one another. She felt that Dace was too good for her and she was undeserving of him. She couldn't bring herself to open up to him and tell him how she felt. Then the unthinkable happened.
What happened to Kerrie and Dace? Were they both okay in the end? Did Kerri and Dace ever admit their true feelings for each other?
Ms. McBride outdid herself with this story. I immediately felt drawn to Kerrie because of everything she had gone through over the years. I felt bad for her that she had such lack of self-esteem for herself. I also fell in love with Dace because he was the perfect knight in shining armor for Kerrie. He was everything that she had hoped to find in a man and so much more. Ms. McBride wrote this story from the heart and she even had me laughing at loud during some of the scenes. Pick up a copy of this story. I assure you that you won't be disappointed. You did a fantastic job, Bess!
Kerrie is on the run from a painful past, and she hides in plain sight as a summer employee in the majestic setting of Glacier National Park. Lonely and isolated from the family and friends she left behind, she dreams of the day when a kind and gentle man will say to her: “I fell in love with you the first time I saw you across the room.” Dace Mitchell could be that man! When the handsome bear ranger rescues Kerrie from her own foolish behavior...more than once, she finds herself drawn to him against her will...until she discovers he’s already involved with someone else. When Kerrie begins to get mysterious silent phone calls, it seems likely that the past has caught up to her. Can Dace save her from a violent man who will stop at nothing to have her?
