Cara Pax never wanted to be a bounty hunter. She's happy to leave chasing criminals and tackling skips to her sisters. But if she wants her dreams of escaping the family business to come true, she's got one last job to finish... Only problem is, she doesn't think her bounty is guilty.

Henry Kavenski is a man with innocence to prove. When he realizes that Cara believes him, he'll do anything to keep her out of harm's way. Escaping criminals and dodging cops might not be the best time to fall in love, but Henry and Cara won't give up, not when there's a chance at a new life ahead--if they can survive the fall.

The story of the Pax sister bounty hunters continues in the Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters series. Cara is the heroine of this story. For someone who is studying to be a kindergarten teacher, who does computer research for bounty hunting, she has guts. She wants to help since things are dire financially.  She decides to do some surveillance of some skips and things go downhill from there.

Henry is the hot skip for a murder charge who shouldn’t be so attractive. Once he began getting Cara out of trouble, I saw exactly who he was. You’ll have to read the story for yourself.  Their romance happens fast but in the adrenaline of romantic suspense it seems right. The life and death situations they face together makes them a team.

Risk It All is a bit ridiculous as far as being realistic but all kinds of fun and thrilling action. Cara made me laugh.  She may have been out of her depth at times but she wasn’t stupid or careless.  Henry really was a great guy in a rough situation.  I loved how he treated Cara.  I was also pleased with his straightforward honesty at the end.

The epilogue is about Nora and it had me snickering.  I’m guessing she will be next to find her man.  The overall story arc of the business and cases will carry through the series, with a new couple in each book.  I liked this better than the first book and I’m looking forward to more.


I have heard this narrator before on other books by Katie Ruggle.  The primary voice was Cara and she performed it well.  It sounded very similar to Molly from the first book, but it’s been awhile.  I was comfortable with the other female and male voices. The emotional status of Cara was well performed with the narration adding to my enjoyment of the story.  I listened at my usual 1.5x speed.

About Katie Ruggle

A fan of the old adage “write what you know”, Katie Ruggle lived in an off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains until her family lured her back to Minnesota. When she’s not writing, Katie rides horses, shoots guns (not while riding, although that would be awesome), cross-country skis (badly) and travels to warm places where she can scuba dive. A graduate of the Police Academy, Katie received her ice-rescue certification and can attest that the reservoirs in the Colorado mountains really are that cold. A fan of anything that makes her feel like a bad-ass, she has trained in Krav Maga, boxing and gymnastics.
