Finding a valuable fossil should lead to fame and fortune, but Cassie Ashton discovers finding is one thing, keeping quite another in Michele Albert's One Way Out. Her troubles begin when she's forced to go to the man most likely to drive her crazy, paleontologist Dr. Alex Martinelli. The verbal jabs that characterize their non-relationship barely scratch the surface, however. When the fossil becomes the target of thieves and Cassie and Alex themselves are taken captive, they're forced to work together to outwit and escape the bad guys. On the run, they uncover layers of attraction and passion as primitive as the Wyoming backcountry and as enduring and strong as the mountainous wilderness. Fast-paced adventure with plenty of local color and character, One Way Out is a zesty read.
