Author’s Note: The hero, Colter Gray Wolf, was a secondary character in Any Thursday, Hannah Donovan’s story in the best-selling Donovans of the Delta romantic comedy series. It is my pleasure to bring him back in this second book of the Mississippi McGills series. This book also introduces Jo Beth McGill and her dog Zar. I’m a dog lover, and always have at least one great dog as companion/protector/friend/foot-warmer under my desk on cold winter days. Zar (short for some exotic name I no longer remember) was my first beloved golden retriever.
“Hold it right there.”
Colter Gray Wolf thought he was hearing things. Maybe he'd been in the desert too long. He shook his head to clear it and knelt closer to the stream.
“I'm talking to you, Indian.”
He felt something poke into his bare back. It was unmistakably the barrel of a gun. Automatically, he lifted his hands above his head in an act of surrender. The person speaking was obviously a maniac, and he wasn't going to take any chances.
