Ava Faraday has spent her life running- from love, from her past, from herself. Now she has only one place left to go: home. She arrives in Nome, Alaska, determined to make a fresh start. The last thing she needs is to fall in love.
Gold dredger Ethan Calhoun has struggled to put the ghosts of his own troubled past to rest. When Ava comes to town, she stirs up feelings in him he can't control, and isn't sure he wants to. The closer they become, the more Ethan wonders: will those feelings destroy everything he's worked for?
In Nome's dredging community, loyalties change, and trust is anything but guaranteed. When they are faced with a common threat, Ethan and Ava realize they must work together to survive. Can two lifelong runners trust each other? Can they convince each other- and themselves- that love is worth the risk?
If you think Mr. McSteamy on the cover looks good, check out the rest of her book. I know some of you may take a glance at the cover and assume typical romance novel but that it is not. This book has all the essentials: a really interesting story filled with suspense and romance (at times, her words just set the pages on fire), developed characters that you can really sink into and the book overall is just the right length. Not only is this an easy and quick read but what a really amazing story teller she is between the descriptions and dialogue. You really get a great picture of who the characters are and where the story is going. She did such an exceptional job making the story engaging that it not only keeps you interested but is really addictive where you can’t stop flipping the pages. Your curiosity definitely make you want to read.
