This could work, whispered the little voice in the back of her mind, the voice that had been silent for seven years…
SHE SOUGHT SOLACE IN SOLITUDE
Years ago, former Marine Captain Cecily Knight fled her dark past and the nightmares forever haunting her nights. Alone in the remote Canadian wilderness, she survives day to day…until Ian Fairchild comes storming into her life and shatters her protective seclusion.
UNTIL ONE TOUCH BARED HER SOUL
Aloof but intriguing, defensive but undeniable, Ian is everything Cecily shouldn’t want but can’t ignore. He watches her with shrewd blue eyes, as if determined to decipher her secrets…and for the first time in years, she finds herself coming alive beneath the hands of a man with too many scars to count.
As the hushed and harsh winter closes in around them, two lost souls find themselves on the precipice of a love that could save their lives…or destroy them forever.
I loved the survival parts of this book. Getting to experience the way Cecily has lived her life off the grid for the past seven years was very interesting and exciting at times. She is a strong confident woman who has been doing her best to deal with life after experiencing some extreme trauma while in the Marines. Ian is cocky and arrogant, but it was great to see him taking such care to get to know Cecily and what she needed. I was cheering both of them on throughout since it was clear they both could benefit from some real companionship. I think my only real complaint is that towards the end it felt like a pretty ute change happened a little too easily and a little too quickly. There was also a strange sense of time in this book. The author did a good job of giving the reader a sense of how time passing feels different in the wilderness, but it was sometimes challenging to get a sense of just how much time had passed. Overall, I enjoyed spending time with both of these characters and getting to see them both change and grow.
