Playing Dirty in Alaska

I'm a sucker for hero-in-pursuit stories and I've been a fan of Samanthe Beck since she wrote for the Entangled Brazen line (which were some of the first steamier romances I read back in the mid 2010s). I read and enjoyed the first in the Captivity Alaska series so I'd been waiting for another book ...

Bold Fortune

I'm a fan of author Megan Crane whether she writes under this pen name or as Caitlin Crews. While the recent Crane books I've read have been Western style romances, I saw that she has a new series The Fortunes of Lost Lake (with a slight variation on a pen name as the author of Bold Fortune is liste ...

Dangerous Ground

Given the number of disappointing romantic suspense reads I’ve experienced lately, it’s no understatement to say that I’ve been very eagerly awaiting the next book from Rachel Grant, someone I know I can rely on to deliver a fast-paced and tightly-plotted story of mystery and suspense alongsid ...

An Alaskan Christmas

An Alaskan Christmas has an interesting premise and a lot of fun with its gripping action scenes.  Its romance is pretty decent too. But the book contains some distractingly weak research when it comes to medical procedures. Workaholic surgeon Dr. Erika Sheraton is an intense woman working in a ...

Arctic Heat

Arctic Heat is the third and final book in Annabeth Albert’s Frozen Hearts trilogy of romances set in and around the spectacular landscapes of Alaska, and in it, we meet winter state park volunteer, Owen Han, an energetic, outgoing guy who has recently survived testicular cancer, and the reserved ...

Arctic Wild

Arctic Wild, book two in Annabeth Albert’s Frozen Hearts series, is a gently moving, slow-burn romance between two very different men who find themselves re-evaluating their lives following an almost fatal accident.  There are places where perhaps the pacing could have been a little faster and th ...

Sniper's Pride

Sniper's Pride was about thirty pages short of a B grade review. I like Ms. Crane's books, for the most part. I was a big fan of her Edge series and thought the Alaska Force books sounded like a good bet, made appealing by the different setting with similarly rugged heroes. And while I did like the ...

Arctic Sun

Sometimes, if I’m familiar with an author, I can overlook flaws in a story - especially if/when the author is trying something new; I’ll round up and qualify the recommendation to AAR readers with the reasons why.  But that familiarity can be a problem when I can’t quite decide if the problem ...

Witness on the Run

I'm fascinated by books set in the harsh wilderness of Alaska, so Susan Cliff's Witness on the Run seemed like the perfect book for me. It features a slow-burn romance between interesting leads and a healthy dose of suspense. It's not a perfect book, but I enjoyed it just the same. Tala Walker ha ...

Alaskan Holiday

Every Debbie Macomber Christmas story has a comforting traditional familiarity that her fans relish - and I am one of them. Alaskan Holiday reaches its conclusion during the holiday season, but its focus is very modern. Before Josie Avery starts working at Seattle’s hottest chef-owned restauran ...
