She's loved him forever...
The last thing traveling nurse Evie Steele expects to find when she boards her mobile health clinic is her brother's best friend. As always, Deke's close proximity stirs her forbidden desires and long-suppressed dreams. But his sudden reappearance in her life and curious interest in her patients makes Evie wonder what he's hiding.
...but now his secrets could destroy them both
Special agent Deke Conrad is in big trouble. Not only does he have a thing for his friend's little sister, but what should be a routine mission is turning into a tour of temptation and survival. He fooled himself into thinking he could keep the beautiful and dynamic Evie in the dark while he used the cover of her Med Mobile to track down a merciless wildlife trafficker. But he didn't anticipate the lure of her scent or the warmth of her smile...or the string of dead bodies littering their path.
When Evie winds up in his enemy's crosshairs, Deke must unleash every weapon in his arsenal to save her, including his heart. But will he be too late?
Grab a hold for a break neck ride
The Steel Ridge series grows more riveting with each new story...Ms Devlyn had me completely captivated from the onset, literally taking my breath away with the perfect combination of romance, intense intrigue, and familial loyalties.
There was not one aspect of Derek and Evie's story that didn't surpass all expectations of what this sixth book in the series held. Their draw to each other was as heartwarming as it was heart stopping. Derek's strength and Evie's boldness created a unique couple who drew me into their depth of the long held pull towards each other.
Ms Devlyn provided a roller coaster ride that was perfectly crafted to keep me hanging on page after page so completely engrossed in what action was just around the corner. Each aspect of the story was so believable that at times I needed a break to catch my breath before continuing.
There is a certain sadness in knowing that only one more book, Jonah's story, remains in the series. The Steels have become a pseudo family...that'll be sure missed.
This ARC book is a complimentary copy provided by the author. I am voluntarily providing my honest review.
Another winner for Ms Devlyn
Loved this story. I have only read two of the Steel Ridge books, and have loved each one as well.
This one is not for the faint of heart. But if you are looking for a story filled with suspense, intrigue, whodunit, evil characters, wildlife trafficking, strong female characters as well as hunky male characters, this one is for you. A book that you will not want to put down.
The main characters are Evie and Deke. Evie has been in love with Deke for most of her life, but he is 12 years older and best friends with Britt, one of Evie’s brothers. Which meant, best friend’s little sisters where not to be messed with. Evie is about to graduate from nursing school and is working in a mobile clinic that goes to small towns in the mountains.
Deke, is a Wild Life special ops agent that frequently goes undercover. He posses as a journalist .
It’s been a year since Deke has been back home .This time due to an injury . He too has been attracted to Evie, but feels he’s too old and jaded for her. Plus, she is just starting her career and her life.
The bad guys will make your hair stand up but thank God, the good prevails. In the midst of all the drama, and suspense, family loyalties are strong and these two realize that obstacles can be overcome and that their HEA can be achieved.
Once again, Ms Devlyn demonstrates her talent and shines in her skill as an author.

Deep breath. That is exactly what I had to do when I finished reading Roaming Wild by Tracey Devlyn. My heart was beating out of my chest and I almost couldn’t blink or read fast enough for fear of missing something near the end of the book. Devlyn writes a dark, romantic suspense filled with evil villains that make you shudder but balances it out well with a romance between life long friends.
Roaming Wild is Evie Steele’s story. If you have read the other books in the Steele Ridge Series you have met Evie already and know she is the youngest sister of four brothers and a sister. She doesn’t back down from things easily and is sick of being treated like a little girl. As the best friend of Evie’s older brother, Britt, Deke Conrad has played it cool with Evie, not wanting to mess things up. His job as a Special Agent takes him away for long periods of time and requires him to keep secrets. Evie is just starting her nursing career. Deke is a decade older than Evie and would like to start a family. They are in different places, according to Deke and just doesn’t think it will work. Evie won’t give up.
Devlyn writes a very creative mystery with many different connections and somehow keeps it all straight, allows the reader to easily follow along, and entertains us from start to finish. She really takes your emotions on a ride, so make sure you are ready! Devlyn always brings me new and exciting careers for her characters and I end up with a new appreciation for things in life that I know nothing about. In this story, she teaches me about wildlife trafficking. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. Nor did I know about Special Agents other than those in the FBI or CIA!
The romance between Deke and Evie is fun to watch. It’s not super flashy or sexy, but it fits the two of them and how long they have known one another. I love Evie’s tenacity and Deke’s soft spot for Evie. He doesn’t even stand a chance. It was a nice give and take between the two of them with a few passionate moments that were exactly what we needed to give us a break from the evil Harwood family. If you are looking for an original, emotional, romantic suspense give Roaming Wild a read.
