Monday Book Review: Daredevil’s Run

Daredevil’s Run (Silhouette Romantic Suspense) by Kathleen Creighton Review… Summary: Former partners and lovers who ran an adventure business together (offering rock climbing lessons and white water rafting tours), have not seen each other in five years.  Not since Matt was paralyzed in a freak climbing accident.
