Ricki Sheridan traveled a long way to seek refuge at Wolf Den's Lodge high in the mountains after a devastating betrayal. Heartbroken, she signed up for a survivalist backpacking trip to live off the land and forget.

An injury on the first day puts her in the capable hands of the handsome trail boss, Kory Littleton. The attraction is instant, mutual, and terrifying. She trusted her emotions once and vowed never to make the same mistake again.

Kory's heart, trampled and bruised, is unprepared to ever love again, until his unexpected reaction to Ricki reveals some things are worth taking a chance on.

When evil finds its way back into Ricki's world, their fragile bond is tested, forcing them to face their greatest fear: can a wounded heart ever trust anew?

Betrayal. Desire. Revenge. Which one prevails?

Praise for That One Moment:
Patty Wiseman, as well as anyone and better than most, sure knows how to write the three basic ingredients of a page-turning and unforgettable novel: mystery, suspense, and romance. 
-- Caleb & Linda Pirtle ~ Here Comes a Mystery

"It was pure perfection!-- Jessa, Amazon Reviewer

"Author Patty Wiseman does a good job of injecting so much action into just the first two pages that I had high expectations for this story. And That One Moment does not disappoint.
-- Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite

Ricki’s squirming slowed as the breath left her body to the point of unconsciousness. As blackness overtook her, the grip on her mouth and chest suddenly released.

She gasped for air.

“Ricki, breath deep, relax. You’re gonna be fine. I’m here.”

Air filtered back in her lungs and the cloudiness in her brain cleared. “Who…who—?”

“It’s me, darling. Russ. We need to talk.”

She struggled for balance and scooted away as quickly as she could, still gulping in the night air, trying to talk, to shout, but she was too weak.

Russ sat on a log and watched her. “I know I shouldn’t have sneaked up on you, but you left me no choice. If you will give me a chance to explain everything we can put this behind us.”

She blinked at him, unable to comprehend what he was talking about. As the fog lifted from her brain, she clutched at the whistle around her neck. It was gone.

A whisper was all she could manage, but she made it count. “You bastard!”

He reached her in a split second and put a hand over her mouth again. “Now, sweetheart. We don’t have to alert the whole camp. This is between you and me. I took the whistle because I knew you’d try to use it. Come on. Can’t we have a civil conversation? I just want to explain. You didn’t give me the chance back home. You just disappeared.”

She shook her head vigorously, fear beating an erratic rhythm in her ears.

His grip softened. “Look, I’ll let you go if you just promise to sit down and give me a chance to tell my side. If you don’t like my explanation I’ll leave, and you can go back to camp. I’m a reasonable man. What do you say?”

This might be the only chance I have to get away from this lunatic.

She nodded.

He kept his hand over her mouth. “Do you promise?”

She nodded again.

Slowly he removed his hand but gripped her arm. “Okay, good. Much better.”

Her breath remained ragged, but her heart rate slowed a bit. He’s lost his mind!

As she tried to calm down, his hand relaxed its grip until it released completely.

He handed her a canteen. “This will help. Take a swig.”

The water slid down her parched throat restoring her voice. “Why are you doing this? You could have come to my tent and asked to talk to me.”

“Really, Ricki? First of all, you were pretty worked up. Second, your lady friend looked as though she wanted to clobber me. And last, but not least, trail boy was a little too eager to come to your defense. With the whistle around your neck, I would have been surrounded in a split second with one blow. This was the best way.”

She shook her head. “No, this is kidnapping.”

The scowl returned to his face. He reached for the canteen and jerked it back. “Cut it out, Ricki. I didn’t kidnap you. You’re free to go, if you want. But, you did promise to talk to me.”

“And you promised never to cheat on me.”
