Dig deep enough and you will strike danger.

It was the middle of January in Southeastern Alaska. Sara Eckert anticipated at least another two months of vacancy in her remote bed & breakfast. Until he showed up. A man not interested in hiking, fishing, or hunting. So, why was he there?

Two miners have gone missing. Their disappearance has been ruled accidental. To the firm that sent them to Alaska, that answer is unacceptable. Luke Reis has been dispatched to learn more. Gaining access to the remote wilderness isn’t so simple, though. He’ll have to enlist the owner of the Marmot Hideaway to help get him started.

As Luke and Sara dig deeper into the disappearance of the miners, they edge closer to passion. But the abandoned network of underground mines may stake the ultimate claim…their lives.

This is a standalone romantic suspense included a series with a similar theme.

EXCERPT:
You’re here for business.

Not a bed and breakfast vacay. 

Luke climbed the slippery rocks, and then the flagstone path to the porch stairs. Grasping the wooden railing, he jarred it slightly, pleased to see that it held firm under his force.

A bell jingled as he opened the storm door. Then he was inside—inhaling the scent of burning wood before the heat from the fireplace even reached him.

For a man that made his living remaining alert, he was startled by the sound of a throat clearing close by.

“Hello, Mr. Reis,” the proprietor said from behind her antique desk.

It had been easy to miss her. The door opened in, nearly hitting the desk tucked up tight against the wall. It must have been positioned there by design, to offer as much space as possible to the open living area.

“Luke,” he repeated automatically.

Hah. His employers preached discretion, and yet he was here under his own name. They had shoved him on a plane before there was any time to worry about ID. It didn’t matter. There wasn’t much to dig up on him in an internet search. No Facebook. No Instagram. No, here is my resume, look how great I am post.

“Do you want to schedule any activities for tomorrow?” Skeptical eyes glanced up at him.

It was the first time he was getting a good look at the proprietor of the Marmot Hideaway. She wasn’t bulked up in her outerwear and hat. Now she sat in a red flannel shirt with a white turtleneck under it. Long tawny hair was flattened on top from the knit hat, with bright blue eyes and rosy cheeks from the cold. Even her lips were blushed from the fire’s benevolence.

Those eyes dropped to her open notebook. The page was blank except for a few scrawled lines he couldn’t decipher.

“I mean—” she flailed her hands helplessly, “—there isn’t a lot to offer this time of year. “I can try to take you hiking up this trail–”

She reached for a brochure, opening it to a map that had her bed and breakfast marked with a caricature of a smiling squirrel. Oh, maybe not a squirrel. It must be a marmot. 

A series of paths jutted out from that nexus like worm trails.

“—but the path will be treacherous. It will have patches of mud and ice the whole way.” She lifted off the chair enough to peek over the desk. “Those are good boots, though.”

Luke glanced down at his boots as though he’d never seen them before. Yeah, they were damn good boots. They had touched down on almost every corner of the world.
