Night Hunt by Carey Decevito
Two disappearances… Lives forever altered… A witness leads to a manhunt that’ll shape what’s to come. She disappeared so long ago, but she’d never faded from his mind. Search and Rescue handler Caden Summers loved his life for the most part. He owns a little piece of wildlife heaven on the outskirts of town, has great friends, a side gig with Nightshade Securities and best of all—Renegade—his four-legged search partner and best friend. Suspected, ridiculed and dismissed. No one can blame Aspen Ridge for resorting to a corner in the middle of nowhere to live her life after her sister’s kidnapping. Her cottage keeps her away from the society that once ostracized her. Her career moonlighting as Penny Sexton helps her keep a pulse on the outside world, becoming the person she always wanted to be. Her only complaint in life is that her past surrounds her everywhere she looks. Rescued from a suspect retrieval attempt gone wrong, Cade finds himself nursed by a spitfire of a woman who isn’t afraid to wield a weapon in front of his friends—something he’d found oddly attractive—yet a little foolish considering their background. When past and present collide, submersing him into the longest unsolved manhunt of his career, Cade knows one thing is sure. No one involved with this case will ever be the same again. All it took was three days with the feisty Amazon for him to make up his mind. He’d help her find her peace. Then he’d help himself to a piece. Hopefully, before all hell breaks loose.
