About the book:
With a storm coming and a killer on the loose, every step could be their last...
Angel Smith is finally ready to leave Antarctica for a second chance at life. But on what was meant to be her last day, the remote research station she's been calling home is attacked. Hunted and scared, she and irritatingly gorgeous glaciologist Ford Cooper barely make it out with their lives...only to realize that in a place this remote, there's nowhere left to run.
Isolated with no power, no way to contact the outside world, and a madman on their heels, Angel and Ford must fight to survive in the most inhospitable--and beautiful--place on earth. But what starts as a partnership born of necessity quickly turns into an urgent connection that burns bright and hot. They both know there's little chance of making it out alive, and yet they are determined to weather the coming storm--no matter the cost.
Angel Smith is just about to end her time as the cook for Burke-Ruhe research base at the South Pole in Antarctica. Winter is about to start and instead of all days they’ll switch to all nights and only a skeleton crew will be staying on, but before she can get on the plane the base is attacked leaving her and Ford Cooper stranded. Now they must get to safety and survive in the harsh elements before their food runs out and before the bad guys hunt them down and finish them off.
Ford Cooper tried to keep his distance from Angel because of his intense attraction to her, because nothing could come of it, but now that they’re thrown together and on the run for their lives he doesn’t have much hope he’ll be able to resist her.
This was a thrilling, fast-paced, action filled read, and I loved every minute of it! At the beginning of the story Angel and Ford have a bit of an antagonistic relationship. Angel’s attracted to Ford, but thinks he hates her as all he does is scowl and avoid her as much as possible. She doesn’t realize that he’s attracted to her as well and has some fears about getting together. Of course, when all hell breaks loose, and they’re thrown together under life and death circumstances they get close and the sparks fly! Very steamy when they weren’t running for their lives! I was just worried about them surviving long enough for the relationship to go anywhere and let me tell you it was pretty intense and shaky there for a while!
As a side note I alternately listened and read the story, and I really enjoyed Coleen Marlo's performance. She sort of reminded me of Lorelei King.
