Then one of the suspects is found dead, stripped to his boxers and socks in a vat of apricot brandy.

12 Days of Free Romance - Day 9

It's the ninth day of All Romance's 12 Days of Christmas giveaways:

In The Arms of Danger, by Jaydyn Chelcee, is book one of her Montana Men series. The price shows as $5.95, but when you click on Buy Now, you should see the discount for the 12 Days of Christmas sale. This one is in PDF format only. UPDATE: This is now available in PDF and EPUB and the discount is still working.

This one has a "heat index" of 3 and is romantic suspense in genre.

Book Description
Every woman needs a little danger in her life, but what's perilous about a wildlife shoot in the beautiful Montana wilderness? Armed with only a camera, Lacey Weston treks through the rough terrain and captures more on film than she bargains for-the murder of another young woman.

Fearing for her life, Lacey flees the scene and stumbles straight into the path of a man who strongly resembles the murderer. Sheriff Danger Blackstone, with his piercing gray eyes and rugged physique, could be the man in her undeveloped pictures.

With nowhere else to run and hide, Lacey must decide if she dares to trust her life to the only person who can protect her, one whose apparent grudge against Anglo females makes him less than approachable-the very man she suspects of murder.

This suspenseful romance-packed with action, hard-bodied cowboys and long, hot nights-gives a whole new meaning to the Wild West.
