A Story of Romantic Suspense
by Ember Stokes
Lady Clara Amadroz is travelling with the charming but unscrupulous financier Gerald “Ger” McKenzie. They are in a luxury Pullman car headed west through the Cascade mountains to Seattle. When the train is delayed for nine days by heavy snows, Clara’s plans to cement her relationship with Ger get derailed by an inquisitive reporter when her past comes to light. Meanwhile, fear of an avalanche stalks the motionless train. Snow mounts up in unstable layers on the slopes above, and tensions escalate. Clara and Ger’s scenic business trip dissolves into a hart-pounding storm of dread, greed, and passion.
