Blurb: When two strangers are trapped in a blizzard, heat rises.
Haunted by what he lost in Afghanistan, Captain Jack Turner is at a crossroads. While the last place he wants to go is the Arctic, at least the routine mission gets him out from behind his new desk. But he starts off on the wrong foot with the Canadian Ranger guiding him across the forbidding and dangerous land, and Jack would rather be anywhere than sharing a tent with Sergeant Kin Carsen.
The Arctic is in Kin’s blood, and he can’t seem to leave the tundra behind. He wishes he could live openly as a gay man, but the North isn’t as accepting as the rest of Canada. Although he’s lonely, he loves his responsibility as a Ranger, patrolling the vast land he knows so well. But he’s on unfamiliar ground with Jack, and when they’re stranded alone by a blizzard, unexpected desire begins to burn. Soon they’re in a struggle to survive, and all these strangers have is each other.
I am a huge Keira Andrews fan and will continue to be so even though this shortie fell, well… a little short for me. My hope is that this is just a long prelude into the budding romance of Jack and Kin.
What I loved is the way the guys started off with a little bit of animosity between them until circumstances forced the guys into close proximity to one another for a few days…really all up in each others personal space. Kin is born and raised in the arctic and Jack is a lost and floundering Afghan veteran. These two need each other, they just don’t like each other too much…at first.
This is a fast-paced story and one that finds the guys going from indifference to life changing decisions in a matter of days. I struggle with that unless I know it’s just a teaser for a future book. I am hoping there is more to come and if not, it is still a good little story that Andrews fans will want to read.
Overall Impression: I liked it
