Tess Marsh is driving on an isolated and deserted Montana highway when she runs out of gas. A biker stops to offer assistance just prior to the arrival of a motorcycle gang, notorious for white slavery and drug trafficking. Dallas forces himself on Tess by pretending she is his alone.
When they enter the gang's hideout, Dallas pleads with Tess to trust him in spite of her current predicament apparently caused by him. Weeks later there is a FBI raid on the compound and Tess learns that Dallas is Federal agent Grey Thomas who has worked undercover for years seeking evidence to incarcerate these nasty criminals. Tess is subpoenaed to testify at the trials, but someone wants her dead before she gives testimony. Grey is determined to keep her safe.
Lauren Bach has written an exciting romantic adventure reminiscent of a Big Sky version of Romancing the Stone. The heroine is feisty and brave while the hero intrepidly will do what it takes to keep the woman he loves unharmed. LONE RIDER is a fantastic reading experience for those fans that enjoy action in their romances.
