Wild Card, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!
Wild Card is a standalone novel and the first book in the North Ridge Trilogy about rough and rugged Canadian mountain men, the Nelson brothers. Canada’s never felt so hot.
She swore she’d never go back home.
She swore she’d never see the man who broke her all those years ago.
But you don’t always get to choose your path.
And sometimes that path is as wild and rugged as the heart.
Rachel Waters thought she saw the last of the small mountain town of North Ridge, British Columbia, when she left six years ago. But while her advertising career blossomed beneath the skyscrapers of Toronto, her mother’s sudden illness has the 26-year old returning to North Ridge to care for her, putting her career on hold while dealing with family secrets, regrets and unresolved goodbyes.
Shane Nelson has always been a bit of a wild card. The youngest of three brothers, Shane’s spent most of his life being underestimated and misunderstood. With his quiet intensity, classic good looks and thoughtful demeanor, he’s an enigma on horseback, managing his father’s sprawling ranch on the slopes of North Ridge.
But while Shane remains the quintessential brooding cowboy, complete with an arsenal of inner demons, all of that changes when Rachel steps back into his life.
She was the girl he pushed away.
Now she’s the girl who wishes she could leave.
Despite the odds, Shane will do everything to convince Rachel he needs a second chance that he doesn’t deserve but when the two of them head off into the wilderness together in search of lost cattle, more than just their hearts are at stake.
Whether it's love or lives on the line, one thing is for sure: always bet on the wild card.
Get ready for a wild ride. Karina Halle delivers a story packed with wild passion, wild chemistry, wild raw emotions, wild sex and one wild sexy man that will steal your heart.
From the very beginning I was sucked in by the undeniable vulnerability and heartache that I sensed was to come. This author did such a great job with these characters and bringing them life and expressing their emotions that you can feel everything they’re going through. My heart ached when theirs were breaking. I cried when they were sad, confused, or hurt. My heart filled with hope when they were picking up the pieces. Shane and Rachel had so much history, so much love for each other.
This was such a great story line. I loved how the author not only used dual POV but also gave us past and present and everything flowed so flawlessly. This was just such a great second chance romance story. I read this in a matter of hours because I was just so consumed in Shane and Rachel’s journey. Not to mention they were scorching hot together.
Wild Card is absolutely a beautifully written story about love, forgiveness and finding your forever home. Looking forward to seeing what Ms. Halle has in store for the next Nelson brother.
