Marooned with the Maverick by Christine Rimmer
Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys continuity series.
Marooned with the Maverick was a good story. I liked the plot. The characters. Could have done withou love scenes. Like the town coming together to take care of each other in a crisis.
Willa for the last four years every time she saw Collin come into a room she would leave. She wanted no part of him. Willa is trying to get out to her folks ranch to check on her runaway dog and gets trapped in her car.
Collin is right behind her going to check on his family ranch while they are gone to a family wedding. He sees Willa trapped and rescues her. The river has flooded and levee breached. He parks his truck out of danger and then joins Willa headed up the hill to her family barn.
They are both soaked because of all the rain and cold flood water. The barn is full of animals taking shelter. Their are plenty of blankets in the tack room to keep them dry. First time in four years that Willa has been in the same room and talking to him.
As Willa learns from watching Collin she realizes that their is more to the man than just the family troublemaker. He saved her life from being trapped and washed away in her car. Got her warm and comfort him and helped her get to her family ranch and then check on others and help where he was needed.
They are both willing to take care of others as they rescue people and animals trapped from flood water and clean up. The story was easy to follow. Kept you interested in the community and wanting to know what happens next to the town. Has drama, humor and fun.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it from Netgalley.

RUST CREEK RAMBLINGS
Seducing the Schoolteacher?
We apologize, dear readers, for our brief hiatus in publication. The offices of the Rust Creek Rambler were damaged in the Great Flood, but we are now filing our reports from a bar stool at the Ace in the Hole. And do we have scandalous news for you!
We have it on good authority that during the storm, gorgeous rapscallion Collin Traub was stranded with our beloved kindergarten teacher Willa Christensen-alone. In a barn. Overnight. No one knows why, but Willa could barely stand the sight of Collin before. And now? Oh, readers-we don't like to kiss and tell. But our sources tell us that the sexy Rust Creek cowboy has set his sights on lassoing the sweet schoolmarm...for good!
