Overview

Hazard, Wyoming, is a quiet mountain town where there's snow on the ground from October until June, the wind blows all the time, and nothing much ever happens. But that's all about to change. Because, just when the wind suddenly stops, a killer comes to Hazard — a hunter as deadly and primal as evil itself.

When Sheriff Will Bridger sees the murdered teenage girl, it's the worst scene he's ever witnessed. But there's worse to come. Much, much worse. While the nights grow longer ...

Overview

Hazard, Wyoming, is a quiet mountain town where there's snow on the ground from October until June, the wind blows all the time, and nothing much ever happens. But that's all about to change. Because, just when the wind suddenly stops, a killer comes to Hazard — a hunter as deadly and primal as evil itself.

When Sheriff Will Bridger sees the murdered teenage girl, it's the worst scene he's ever witnessed. But there's worse to come. Much, much worse. While the nights grow longer and the winter snow gets deeper, the violence intensifies. As does the blazing passion between Will and late-night radio host Faith Prescott. Harboring secrets as potentially dangerous as his own, Faith knows all too well the dark side of the human heart. She can help Will. If he'll only let her.

It won't be easy, though. The man who was once the boy raised by wolves is no ordinary serial killer. Fortunately, Will Bridger is no ordinary cop.

Read an Excerpt

PROLOGUE

It was the wind that woke him. Or, more precisely, a sudden hush as startling in its silence as the crack of a rifle shot shattering a dark and moonless night. When you lived on the rooftop of America, which Hazard, Wyoming, population 2,642 was — didn't the Chamber of Commerce even proclaim its status on the welcome sign at the city limits? — you lived with eternal wind.

Night and day it roared like a freight train, wailed like a banshee, screamed like a horde of insane berserkers. It hurled itself over the winter landscape, turning snowfields into a violent sea, creating churning swells that swiftly transformed vehicles, cattle, and the occasional foolhardy human into lumps of frozen white.

The same wind that ripped away tree limbs, fence lines, and peeled trailer roofs open like sardine cans also tore apart hope, love, and dreams, hurling them into the Big Sky land of Montana, across the high plains to the Dakotas, and beyond. A geography professor at Wind River College had published a paper asserting dust from ancient buffalo bones had been found as far away as the Highland peaks of Scotland. Not a single person in northwestern Wyoming doubted the claim.

But every so often, just when even the most optimistic soul was ready to put a bullet into his skull to end his misery, the wind would stop.

Just like that.

As if God, or Fate, or whoever the hell controlled the weather in this wild, isolated part of the world had hit the pause button.

Unlike those lesser beings, who'd stumble out of their homes, confused and grumpy, snarling and snapping like feral animals being too early awakened from a deep winter's sleep, the man who'd once been the boy raised by wolves was not confused by the wind's sudden and silent cessation.

He'd been waiting for it.

Planning for it.

And now, with bloodthirst singing in his veins, he was ready.

    Very good!

    I won¿t go into the plot as that¿s already been covered. This was definitely suspense/thriller at its very best. The chemistry between Will and Faith was intense. There were a few things that could have used more background information: 1. The boy raised by wolves. 2. Will and Faith in Georgia. 3. Faith¿s life in Las Vegas. I was a little confused.

    Wonderful Romantic Suspense

    JoAnn Ross¿s fans will not be disappointed in her current release Impulse. Sheriff Will Bridger after nearly losing his life on the job back in Savannah, Georgia has moved back to Hazard, Wyoming. Back with him is his 16-year-old son that he just found out about. Now there is a killer on the prowl and its going to take all Will has to solve these gruesome murders. Late night talk radio host Faith Prescott thought she was safe in tranquil Hazard. Faith is trying to out run her past. Faith had a previous relationship with Sheriff Will left her burned. She is not sure what was real back then since Will was under cover. A terrible murder brings them face to face again. The passion is still there, stronger then ever. A danger from Faith¿s past is threatening her newfound relationship with Will. As the killer grows more daring it takes every thing Will has to keep his town and his family safe. Impulse is a fast paced, gripping and a wonderfully moving sensual tale. JoAnn Ross is an auto buy for me.

    A strong romantic crime thriller.

    In Savannah, Georgia, undercover cop Will Bridger is an adrenalin junkie who loves his rush especially when he deals with a dangerous suspect. That changes when the widower is shot and nearly killed. As he heals, he realizes he is not afraid of dying, but fears that if he dies no one would be there for his teenage son Josh.---------------- Will accepts the job of Sheriff of his hometown Hazard, Wyoming ignoring the objections of a hostile Josh. However, Will¿s assumption of nothing dangerous happening here is quickly destroyed when someone mutilates and murders Olympic caliber ice skater Erin Gallagher. As he investigates the gruesome homicide that has shaken the 2642 residents of the ¿Rooftop of America¿, radio talk host Faith Prescott also investigates. Will knows he is dealing with a dangerous serial killer and fears that the feisty reporter he is falling in love with could be next.--------------- Though serial killers have become too frequent as the underpinning of police procedural romances, JoAnn Ross refreshes the sub-genre with the locale, an isolated small town where the image remains just what Will remembers where nothing bad happens. As Will learns you can¿t go home since that memory is never the same as the return. He struggles with stopping a killer in front of media frenzy, keeping his son safe and in line, and falling in love with the enemy, a reporter. Fans will appreciate Ms. Ross¿ strong romantic crime thriller.---------------------- Harriet Klausner
