About The Outpost
Trapped in his tiny mountain cabin, she didn’t expect to fall for his big heart.
Exposing a prominent criminal family with an investigative news report didn’t exactly work out the way Sabrina had hoped. Instead of basking in the glory of her article’s success, she’s on the run from a powerful man who wants her dead. To stay safe, she’s forced to trade one bad situation for another. Stuck in the Montana wilderness, she’s secluded from anything resembling civilization or the modern-day world. The only good thing about her situation is the gorgeous mountain man assigned to protect her. Too bad he isn’t the slightest bit interested in a city girl like her.
Beau likes his life quiet and simple. Give him a peaceful day hiking in the woods with his dog, and he’s a happy man. He has no use for large crowds, noisy cities or dramatic women. So when a hotshot reporter rolls into town, dragging her big-time problems with her, he should have run for the hills. Instead, he volunteered to keep her safe. Bringing her into his world won’t be easy, but if he can convince her that Montana isn’t as terrifying as she believes, they might just be the perfect match.

Beau Holt and Sabrina Mackenzie may come from different worlds and they may even understand that anything between them will only be temporary, but the desire they feel to build a connection pulses through them both and it will not be denied – one way or another, Beau and Sabrina will give into their attraction for each other and risk losing their hearts in a small outpost in Prescott, Montana, because living in the now given all that Sabrina has been through makes Beau beyond protective of her and it allows Sabrina to feel safe in Beau’s arms for however long she has to remain out of sight.
Beau is definitely a modern-day mountain man and Sabrina’s nickname for the broody guy, Goliath, is quite fitting given his desire to protect those he loves and the strong will that seems to resonate off of him. It’s easy to understand why he’s so conflicted over her feelings for Sabrina because where they live, how they live, and what they live for make their lives strikingly different. But her pull is too much for him to deny and even though he knows their time is fleeting, he can no longer push Sabrina away when all he wants to do is pull her close and never let her go.
Sabrina is a fantastic heroine; her independence is extremely important to her and her fight and her snark are still present even after everything she’s been through to get her story published and to get to Montana. She is completely out of her element and she’s on the run from men who want payback for exposing their evil deeds. She’s battered, bruised, and fragile when she arrives in Prescott to see her best friend, Felicity, and she definitely doesn’t know what ‘roughing it’ truly means BUT she follows orders, puts on a brave face, and does what needs to be done in order to protect not only herself but those she loves who can potentially get caught in the crosshairs.
Beau and Sabrina make a perfect team; Beau refuses to let anything happen to her and Sabrina refuses to be a burden on him or anyone else. They’re out in the middle of nowhere but when they’re together, it just feels right and neither of them can get enough of it, but the times that Beau is back in Prescott and Sabrina’s left to her own devices, is when she begins to question everything she did to get herself into this situation and what it’s going to take to get herself out of it and still keep her heart intact when she heads back to Seattle.
The setting of Beau and Sabrina’s story is just as important as the characters themselves. The secluded, uninhabited Outpost and the land that surrounds it becomes its own character in the story line; it’s supposed to be Sabrina’s refuge…her super-secret hideout…her off the grid oasis and it becomes that the more comfortable she gets with being out in the wilderness by herself, but it also turns into so much more, in both positive and negative ways, and her fear is that once she leaves her little hideaway haven, she’ll not know how to live in society again and she’ll lose her one saving grace of everything she endured to expose a wrong…the man who has come to mean everything to her, even when she told herself he couldn’t be anything more than temporary.
Devney Perry is a fantastic storyteller; it’s easy to imagine the settings she creates in her Jamison Valley series because her eye for detail and her ability to transfer that into descriptive words makes each scene come to life around her characters.
I’m excited for Maisy’s story; it will be interesting to see the kind of man Perry chooses for this single mom and what it means for her overprotective brothers and the little boy who means everything to her.
