Goodreads synopsis: 

Stranded in the Alaskan wilderness,


they must rely on each other to survive.


When Blackhawk operative Vincent Kalani boarded an airplane, he never expected it to crash into the Alaskan mountains. On the ground, by-the-book police officer Shea Ramsey becomes his unlikely partner in survival. Shea was headed to New York to fight for custody of her son, but now she’s fighting for her life with an ex-cop who’s equal parts inscrutable and unpredictable.

4.5 stars


This is a book in the Harlequin Intrigue line by Nichole Severn.


This book was pretty convoluted in truth. There was a ton of backstory that happened before the story even started. I felt like I was struggling to keep up. I wasn’t exactly sure how connected Vincent and Shea were but she had a son he didn’t know about so I assumed not as connected as I initially thought.


Shea is heading to New York to go to a hearing so she can retain joint custody with her ex-husband. Apparently, her big secret that has a mental health overtone is what kept her from being the best mom she could be. A lot of the problems she had were of her own making due to this mental health problem. Vincent got burned pretty badly previous to this story starting and it impacted him greatly. Both of these characters have wounds, whether visible or not that have kept them from living their best life.


Life has come full circle here when Vincent’s past collides with Shea’s and they are running for their lives in the mountains, evading the bad guys, trying not to freeze to death and get back to civilization alive.


Definitely a thrilling read. I wish the story had started earlier so I could have learned a lot more about these characters and their pasts.


If you like romantic suspense, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
