BOOK ONE of THE AUSTIN-STONER FILES series She expected to find a manuscript that would rock the publishing world and boost her career. But the real surprise was the bronc-buster, rodeo cowboy who guided her through canyon country to find it. When he first walks into the plush New York offices of Atlantic-Hampton Publishing Company, no one takes the eccentric stranger seriously. Until he mentions the manuscript — the famously missing last works of Martin Taylor Harrison. The publishers decide not to risk their reputation on what could be a fake. Outraged, editor Lynda Austin determines to recover the original herself ... hidden away in a remote cabin somewhere in the Arizona Strip canyons. So Lynda heads west. To adventure. To fear. To danger. To primitive conditions far removed from her urbane, sophisticated life. And nothing has prepared her for Brady Stoner.
