The Bribe by Willa Nash
From USA Today Bestselling Author Devney Perry writing as Willa Nash comes a small town Montana romance.
Duke Evans didn’t expect to find a beautiful woman in a staring contest with a bison on his favorite hiking trail. He also didn’t expect to see her again after rescuing her from the surly beast. As the sheriff in Calamity, Montana, he’s had his fair share of surprises but none as pleasant as pulling over a shiny black car and finding his mysterious hiking companion behind the wheel.
Only she lied to Duke. She gave him a name as fake as her hair color. According to her driver’s license, her real name is Lucy Ross, the famous country music singer whose sudden disappearance has been a hot topic on the radio over the past two weeks.
He’s not sure why Lucy lied about her identity or why she’s in Calamity. And she’s not talking. Instead, she offers him a bribe to keep her secret.
Duke doesn’t want her money. He wants to know why this beautiful woman is on the run. And as long as the star shines on his badge, he’s going to find out.
****4 Star Review****
I love me some Devney and now I love me some Willa!
This book was hard to put down. I literally finished it within the day. I was so caught up with this story, I forgot to adult. 🤷♀️
The Bride has the perfect amount of romance, steam and suspense that I love in my books.
Jade is running from her life. Bad things have happened and she just needed an escape. She find her peace in Calamity and Duke. Duke is the sheriff and he will stop at nothing to figure out why Jade ran and help her get through it all.
Their chemistry was magnetic. I loved watching their love grow while trying to connect the dots on who was after Jade. I definitely wasn't expecting that person but it was a nice little spin. As always, I trust no one and everyone was a suspect. I am soooooo glad it wasn't who I thought. Whew!!!!
I am so excited to continue this series. These next two characters have me scratching my chin but I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!
