Barrett Cole

Stranded on a lonely road, Barrett Turk isn’t looking for the love of his life—just a ride to the airstrip where his crew of smokejumpers is waiting. With a forest fire eating its way toward his family ranch and the rest of Willow Gap, he’ll do whatever it takes to stop the next vehicle that drives by.

Fleeing a broken life in Los Angeles, Quinn Whitaker doesn’t know what to make of the hulking, axe-wielding maniac who jumps in front of her truck.

Is he a serial killer?

A crazed car jacker?

Mr. Right?

  1. You have been missed. Hope everything is good in your life and that of your family. And hey is that bathroom still blue/green or have you changed your mind again?
    Be Well 🍁

    • Thank you <3

      Re: the bathroom, we moved from that house in MI to TN end of 2015 and finally managed to sell the house in April 2016. But with the blue tile, I imagine the new owner kept the walls the same color 🙂 Now I have reddish-beige, medium dark walls and I am itching to paint them but my hands won't allow it.

  2. I am SOOOO glad you are back. I just bought all three and signed up for your new newsletter! You have just made my whole weekend!

    • Clare, that is so sweet of you 🙂 As I said in email, you gave me my biggest smile of the week. <3

  3. Hi Christa! I was so bummed to read on your Facebook page that you weren’t going to be writing anymore. I just finished reading Adler James and I really enjoyed it. Does this new series mean you will be publishing regularly again? Hope you’re doing well!

  4. Hi Christa
    Glad to see you back.
    I’ve missed the books under that name
    Looking forward to getting to know you again through
    you book..
    I’ve signed up again to received your newsletter looking forward
    to reading them

  5. Am I the only person who purchased Walker Pierce, but inside the cover is actually Adler James?

    • Edina –

      OMG! Kobo – yes? I just went through all the previews and only saw it there. I am updating the file there immediately, but I don’t know that KOBO lets you redownload? gmail wickedchrista and I will send you the epub for Walker Pierce. I am mortified and sorry!

  6. Hi Christa,
    Just purchased Walker Pierce from the Kobo bookstore but inside the cover is is Adler James. As I write this comment I see that someone else had the same problem last week. Just FYI that Kobo still hasn’t corrected it.

    • Sue, I just replied to your email with the fixed file. Kobo can take up to 72 hours from the time I replaced it with the right file. Hopefully with this being Thanksgiving (well, for US readers at least) and so many people busy with that, the next sales will come after the right file is in place.

      I apologize (profusely, I’m prostrate as I type this) for the goof up!
