Duke Evans didn’t expect to interrupt a beautiful woman in a staring contest with a bison on his favorite hiking trail. He also didn’t expect to see her again after rescuing her from the surly beast. As the sheriff in Calamity, Montana, he’s had his fair share of surprises but none as pleasant as pulling over a shiny black car and finding his mysterious hiking companion behind the wheel.
Only, she lied to Duke. She gave him a name as fake as her hair color. According to her driver’s license, her real name is Lucy Ross, the famous country music singer whose sudden disappearance has been a hot topic in the media over the past two weeks.
He’s not sure why Lucy lied about her identity or why she’s in Calamity. And she’s not talking. Instead, she offers him a bribe to keep her secret.
But Duke doesn’t want her money. He wants to know why this woman is on the run. And as long as the star shines on his badge, he’s going to find out.

Hiking can be an adventure or your greatest nemesis. For Duke Evans – a trek on the trails would leave a lasting impression in more ways than one. That unexpected encounter in the wilderness would follow Duke right back to Calamity.
Imagine the surprise when Duke pulls over a car for speeding and discovers his ‘hiking partner’ behind the wheel. Lucy wasn’t prepared to have her identity outed from a traffic stop and will do anything to keep Duke from spilling her secret. In spite of the circumstances, Duke can’t help feeling as if danger is lurking around the corner. With a bribe laid out before him, Duke knows that he has to uncover the secrets that Lucy is hiding.
The Bribe is the first in a series from Willa Nash, and it sets the pace for a series that is too good to miss!! There is nothing ordinary about the way Duke and Jade meet. An instant attraction leads the two on a path that is sure to combust. With danger lurking around the corner, Duke is determined to keep Jade in town as long as possible.
When delving into The Bribe, I found myself glued to my reader. I adored the unique story plot that enveloped Duke and Jade. Their story started out making me laugh and kept me wanting to know where their story would lead. As the danger from Jade’s past came knocking, I found myself desperate to learn where this couple’s path would lead. Now – that brings me to the glimpse into what is in store for The Bluff. Holy cow…..I cannot wait to uncover what transpires in Calamity next!!
“Let me hit him a few pop flies, then I’ll drive you home.”
“Oh, that’s okay. I can walk.” She took a step away, waving as she walked backward. “See you around.”
“Lucy,” I said, her name—the sweet one—loud enough for only her to hear. “I’m driving you home.”
She arched an eyebrow. “Please?”
I strode into her space, this time so close that the cotton of my T-shirt brushed against the fabric of her tank top. Close enough that I heard the hitch in her breath. “That wasn’t a request.”
“Bossy,” she whispered. “That’s a new look for you.”
“It’s not entirely unattractive.”
