knows he has no room in his life for her as long as the mystery of his missing niece goes unsolved. The only problem is, Sierra has solved it, but a promise to Esme to keep her whereabouts secret has made it impossible to be around Ian.
When the PEAK chopper is damaged and Sierra lacks the funds to repair it, Ian offers a fundraising junket for large donors on his yacht in the Caribbean. But the three-day excursion turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave cripples the yacht and sends the passengers overboard. Shaken up and soaked to the bone, Ian finally has a chance to test his theory when he and Sierra do indeed find themselves washed up on a strange, empty shore.
It will take guts and gumption for the PEAK team to rescue the duo. But it will take a miracle to rescue Ian and Sierra's relationship.

"She just had to escape Ian Shaw before she started crying."
It's always been this way between Sierra Rose and Ian Shaw; love and admiration gone the way of utter frustration. He comes and he goes, he employs her and then he fires her, he lights a fire in her heart and manages to completely douse it out with his over bearing, over protective, over controlling personality. Can it be any different this time? Apparently not.
For once, self-made billionaire Ian Shaw is a man on the verge of implosion. He has returned to his Montana ranch with the notion of selling it; his liquid assets having been frozen by the government after an unfortunate accident on one of his oil fields, and his long search for his missing niece at a complete standstill. And Sierra? She will hardly give him the time of day.
When a PEAK rescue helicopter suffers extensive damage following a freak accident, Sierra manages to convince Ian to host a weekend yachting excursion on his "Montana Rose", with the intention of securing a few large donations from his wealthy acquaintances towards the necessary repairs. What happens on those troubled waters serves to prove that "God is our refuge and our portion", for "it's never a bad thing to have only God to turn to".
Enjoy this much anticipated story, filled with romantic and climatic suspense of the heart and helm!

“Troubled Waters”, the fourth installment in Susan May Warren’s Montana Rescue Series, continues the story of the Mercy Falls PEAK team. Opening with Sierra trying to convince Esme Shaw, billionaire Ian Shaw’s niece, to come home, we finally get a chance to hear more about her disappearance and why she is hiding from her uncle. Searching for her has been Ian’s obsession and the destruction of his other relationships.
Sierra, Ian’s former assistant and love interest, has been trying to get her footing ever since Ian found out she lied about knowing Esme was running away with her boyfriend. Now that she knows where she is and hasn’t told him, Sierra knows there is no future with him even though she continues to love him.
Ian is facing money problems and hasn’t been able to to support the PEAK team. When the only chopper is damaged, Ian doesn’t have the funds to repair it. Sierra plans a fundraiser on Ian’s yacht. Then things go terribly wrong…
Other than the characters, my favorite part of Susan May Warren’s series is how she ties them all together. Each book focuses on a particular person or people but the others also have their continuing struggles and also introduction to a possible story of their own. I can’t wait to see whose story she writes next.
