Now and Forever (Wild at Heart)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Saddle up for romance and adventure with the Wilde sisters!
Shannon Wilde is the middle sister--and the one who loves animals. She's established her own homestead and is raising sheep for their wool. Things are going fine...until Shannon gets swept over a cliff by Matthew Tucker!
Tucker seizes every opportunity to get away from civilization, but one particular walk in the woods ends with him sprinting away from an angry grizzly and plunging into a raging river, accidentally taking Shannon Wilde with him. Their adventure in the wilderness results in the solitary mountain man finding himself hitched to a young woman with a passel of relatives, a homestead, and a flock of sheep to care for.
As Tucker and Shannon learn to live with each other, strange things begin to happen on Shannon's land. Someone clearly wants to drive her off, but whoever it is apparently didn't count on Tucker. Trying to scare Matthew Tucker just makes him mad--and trying to hurt the woman he's falling in love with sets off something even he never expected.

It was possible that if she fell asleep and they woke up in the pitch-dark, it would stay dark. Her decision to stay put might end up killing them. She just needed to stay in this tunnel. Keep her eyes wide open for it to split and look for a supply of coal, grab it, and get back to Tucker. Tucker had demanded she promise him she wouldn’t leave. She wondered if he’d remember that she’d
narrow tunnel. Shannon, having a nightmare. Tucker ignored his leg, took her by the shoulders and shook her, firmly, but careful not to hurt her. She wasn’t broken like he was, yet she was probably as battered and probably having nightmares about going over another waterfall. “Not the saw. No! Don’t make me!” “Saw?” Tucker decided shaking wasn’t enough on its own. “Shannon, wake up. You’re having a dream. Wake up.” She wrenched against him and managed to kick his broken leg. He thought about
sister.” Shannon was glad for the britches though, as it was much easier to swim in pants than in a skirt. Tucker smiled a little wider. “I said you don’t have to call me Miss Wilde because, considering what we’re going through together, you can call me Shannon. So there’s more to come then?” “They call this the Slaughter River, and I am mighty afraid there is a lot more to come for you and me. Miss Shannon Wilde, you should have let me go look at the eagles.” Which made no sense at all.

He’d spent most of this fight either riding or knocked to the ground. Shannon looked at him, at the woods, at the dead wolves. Tucker counted four carcasses. “You got one out in the clearing and two more in here.” She saw his pistol on the ground, grabbed it, and handed it to him. “I got one close to the barn and two here.” He holstered the gun, disgusted with
