A mysterious plane crash . . . a dangerous trek through the Idaho wilderness . . . a smoldering attraction . . . and a deadly game of cat and mouse. In her latest tour de force of romantic suspense, New York Times bestselling author Linda Howard blends these elements into a gripping story that will keep readers breathless–and leave them begging for more. For in Linda Howard’s world, trust can be a weapon, a kiss can be a threat, and intimacy can be deadly.

Bailey Wingate’s scheming adult stepchildren are surprised when their father’s will leaves Bailey in control of their fortune, and war ensues. A year later, while flying from Seattle to Denver in a small plane, Bailey nearly dies herself when the engine sputters–and then fails.

Cam Justice, her sexy Texan pilot, manages to crash-land the aircraft. Stranded in the wilderness, and struggling to douse her feelings for the ruggedly handsome man by her side, Bailey begins to wonder whether this was a mere accident. Who tampered with their plane? Who’s trying to reunite Bailey and her husband in the afterlife? Cut off from the world, and with little hope of rescue, Bailey must trust her life–and heart–to Cam, as they battle the harsh elements to find a way out of the unforgiving wilds and back to civilization . . . where a killer may be waiting to finish the job.

Sexy, suspenseful, and lightning fast, Up Close and Dangerous showcases a beloved author at her dazzling best.

Here's a lesson of how to survive a plane crash, near the top of a snow covered mountain. Like most of Linda Howard's books, this seemed to end to quickly for me., but striving to survive was what kep the story interesting, rather than the romance part. more
Very touching story of the love shared between two people who at the beginning couldn't care less about each other. An easy read that is a bit slow, but will keep you interested to find out the ending. A twist at the end makes you a bit surprised. A lot of time spent just making do with the environment and natural instinct to survive. Truely shows that teamwork is the answer to success and happiness.more
Very Entertaining with a survival course thrown in!When I bought Up Close and Dangerous there were mixed reviews, but since I have enjoyed a number of Linda Howard's earlier novels, and I'm a big fan of Ms. Howard I purchased this book. Overall, I thought that Up Close and Dangerous was very entertaining. It may not be one of her best works and her creative mind just didn't thrill me as much as other books, still the story kept my interest, plus it was very educational. Cam is the pilot of a small plane and his passenger is Bailey. The planes crashes and now these two must learn survival skills if they are to get off the mountain alive. Romance blossoms between these characters. The story was a little slow toward the ending, but I read it over a three day period and I was thrilled with the book.more

I have read most of Linda Howard’s books since the release of Mr.Perfect. I have enjoyed most of them. Open Season and Cry No More being my favorites. I pre-ordered Up Close And Dangerous, so I was really looking forward to reading it. Overall I enjoyed the book. I found the two main characters; Bailey and Cam to be fun. I laughed a few times well reading. They had tons of chemistry as well. Their love scenes could have been a little more spicy. I suppose that wasn’t realistic, being in the mountains freezing and all. Speaking of being in the mountains freezing. They had to brave mother natures elements in regards to weather and try to function with their injuries. What about wildlife? There was no mention of being in danger from bears, wolves. Not Ms. Howard’s best work, but not her worst either.more
