This episode is brought to you by Wind River Undercover by Lindsay McKenna.

For native Guatemalan Anna Navarro, nothing is more satisfying than capturing drug traffickers for the U.S. DEA. Her career has always been her focus, but just as she’s beginning to yearn for something more, she’s given a brand-new assignment with DEA agent Gabe Whitcomb. In his well-worn Stetson and boots, he’s part cowboy and part law enforcement. But desire has no place on a job as dangerous as this one, because the drug lord they’re after is the violent fugitive who killed her father.

Gabe’s worked some treacherous assignments in the past, but this one raises every alarm. Posing as new ranch-owners to uncover evidence where a local family has been recruited into a drug cartel, Anna and Gabe can only fight the heat flaring between them until they realize that building a life together in Wind River, is worth risking everything for.

Each installment of the Wind River Valley series has landed on the Publisher’s Weekly bestseller list, and the last four were USA Today bestseller list. Join a growing readership in love with Wind River Valley, from a writer known as The Top Gun of Women’s Military Fiction.
