Merci Carson doesn’t have a clue—but she knows she owes her life to the quiet man who roared to her rescue in his snowmobile. EMT Nathan McCormick is used to handling challenging situations, but between the unexpected blizzard that stranded the lovely student and the desperate men chasing her, he has his hands full. Yet for Nathan, failure is not an option. Merci’s bravery and kindness challenge his guarded heart, bringing every protective instinct forward and making him start to hope for the future. Together, they could be something special—if they can solve the mystery in time.
Another satisfying Harlequin romance.
The characters were fun to read. For a short, Harlequin title, I found the characters easier to connect wiht than some others (aka all those lonely, playboy millionaires/ royalty that’s in never ending supply with Harlequin). Merci is an adorably resilient, optimistic character, a heroine easy to sympathize with. Even though she’s great and naively optimistic, as a reader, I’m not compelled to hide her away from the bad parts in life because of how she’s so resilient.
One of the things that irked me a little was the repetition over their concerson whether this attraction was one forged due to extreme conditions or something that could last. While the concern is refreshing, it felt to cursory. Like Dunn wanted to work that aspect in without actually planning a way to show the reader that concern more than them just telling us it existed. In the end, it was, for the most part, just brushed off in favor of a “we’ll see how this goes and try to make a relationship work”.
This is a good book for anyone who’s in the mood for a short romance with enough action to get the adrenaline pumping.
