Teaser Tuesday 56: Wyoming Manhunt

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

These are the opening few sentences from this older book by Ann Voss Peterson, a favorite local author, read over the weekend.

Shanna felt the sound of the gunshot more than she heard it. The first sharp report jangled her nerves. The second cracked through her ear and jaw, so close she could almost feel the air stirred by the bullet.

About the book:
Genre: Rom Suspense

Cop turned rancher Jace Lantry had no idea how Shanna Clarke--a seemingly law-abiding single mother--ended up on the run from a rifle-wielding boss hell-bent on killing her. But when Shanna came to him, desperate for help, one look in her emerald eyes and Jace was powerless to resist. As the manhunt across Wyoming intensified, the more Jace believed in Shanna's claims of being framed. The question was, why was she a target? Now with both of them being hunted, Jace knew the quiet future he desired was no longer possible thanks to the deadly repercussions of this tempting woman's past.
