Romance Suspense | Romance Contemporary

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.

Re: Whiteout

I cannot even imagine how I would survive. I love to read
these types of stories for inspiration and ideas.
(Nancy Reynolds 9:31am January 28, 2020)

love these kind of stories
Margo Beredjiklian 1:48pm January 28, 2020)

one of my favorite types of books to read
Vickie Couturier 6:02pm January 28, 2020)

I can't imagine but in such cold conditions.
Cynthia St. Germain 9:09pm January 28, 2020)

I would not be able to survive.
Melanie Rosen 1:49am January 29, 2020)

Need to find a spot that is blocking some of the snow. Build a snow wall around in. small opening for air. Rake out the snow from ground inside. Most likely have a Backpack and some supplies. Main thing stay out of weather and warm as possible.
Vera Wilson 3:48am January 29, 2020)

I would die. No survival skills.
Anna Budziak 7:36am January 29, 2020)

Have no idea how I would cope. Just try to fine a way to stay warm and dry.
Blanche Nixon 9:53am January 29, 2020)

I don't know what I'd do if I found myself stranded in the
cold wilderness, but I'd definitely find any way possible
to survive.
Tina Rucci 3:25pm January 29, 2020)

Hopefully would have a firestarter, some really warm
clothes, and some type of hatchet or axe
Jean Patton 7:54pm January 29, 2020)

If I were to be stranded in Antarctica, I'd get out my Girl
Scout common sense and figure out how to create a shelter.
It would be difficult if food, water and shelter were not
easily accessible. I would probably have a thick book and
keep rereading it.
Alyson Widen 12:53pm January 30, 2020)

I'm used to snow and cold temps after growing up in Wisconsin but that nowhere
near would prepare me for the Antarctic.
Tracy Urschler 8:27pm January 30, 2020)

I grew up on the Canadian border, so am used to snow and cold. I have been stranded in blizzards several times and have no desire to repeat the experience any time soon. If by being stranded, you mean inside, I would make sure there was a sufficient fuel supply for heat, food, and a well stocked library. If outside, I would be desperately be trying to make a snow shelter and would hopefully have some means to keep warm - sleeping bag, warm clothing, a heat source of some type (even a candle). A supply of food and some hope of being rescued would certainly be desirable. If none of the above were possible, I would expect to be found as a popsicle some time in the future.
Patricia Barraclough 3:06am January 31, 2020)

Thank you for the chance to win!
Jamie Rincker 11:45pm January 31, 2020)

I can’t imagine being stranded there. Of course, the first thing I would do is
search for shelter or a way to make a shelter. After that, I have no idea. Lol
Amanda Wimer 8:23am February 1, 2020)

I'm from the deep south, so I have no idea how I would be able to live in a place that cold, but I do want some good books to read to pass the time.
Anna Speed 1:35pm February 1, 2020)

I could not survive that barren land.
Sharon Good 2:35pm February 1, 2020)

I hope someone is stranded with me, so we could help each other.
Jana B 7:16pm February 1, 2020)

I would find a way to THRIVE!
Martin Bodnar 7:57am February 3, 2020)

Looks like New York during thanksgiving. Im from the south and nobody
mentioned how cold it gets up here. I would probably not thrive
Audra Spencer 10:17am February 3, 2020)

Love to read this type of story but would not like to
experience it myself!Thanks for the contest!!
Teresa Ward 6:51pm February 3, 2020)

I would hope that someone that knows how to survive in that
would be with me!
Sherry Haut 10:49pm February 3, 2020)

I guess the best thing to do would be not to get stranded
in the first place? But be prepared in case you do!
Lyssa H 11:08pm February 4, 2020)

looking forward to reading this book
Kim Hansen 4:54pm February 5, 2020)

I would probably dig myself a snow cave and hope to be
rescued! Thank you for the giveaway.
Margie Takala 5:02pm February 5, 2020)

Love these kind of stories. This book sounds like a
fantastic read. Reading and analyzing and rating books is
what I like to do. Would love to read and review the
paperback version of this book. Wow very suspenseful.
Usually don't care for book covers like this but you made
the book cover look interesting and intriguing. Book
blurb and excerpt is interesting and intriguing too.
How would I cope in the Antarctic being stranded? I would
walk and walk until found the closest building to stay in
temporarily or until rescued and stayed warm by chopping
wood for the wood stove or fireplace to keep warm. If I
had a snow dog with me or made friends with one while
trying to find a place to stay warm, I would snuggle up
to the animal to stay warm. Staying warm under blankets
and snuggling with an animal to stay warm while stranded
would help anyone and I would do this until rescued. I
would not use a kerosene heater because it could burn the
place down.
Hope I win.
Crystal Stewart 5:12pm February 5, 2020)

I was lucky enough to read an e-ARC of this book. It was
very good. I'm looking forward to the next book.

I'm from the South...I would never survive the Antarctic.
Ann Ivey 5:26pm February 5, 2020)

I don't think I could cope!
Lindsey Andronak 5:55pm February 5, 2020)

Since I'm 77 and hate cold weather & wouldn't have my 2 dogs to keep me warm, I don't think I would make it.
Pat Wilson 6:34pm February 5, 2020)

I am past the age where I would or could survive stranded in that kind of cold environment. My only saving grace is that I very likely wouldn't even be there.
Susan Beamon 7:47pm February 5, 2020)

David Fredendall 8:21pm February 5, 2020)

I would TRY to remember all of the survival tactics my
husband has told me...he is big on being prepared. If I was
totally alone, I am just not sure if I WOULD survive. I
absolutely LOVE reading/reviewing books like this one. I
love reading about Antarctica and snow!
Jamie Gillespie 8:25pm February 5, 2020)

I wouldn't. I can't imagine a way I'd survive.
Linda Townsend 8:27pm February 5, 2020)

Although, I live in Canada, I live closer to the US border. I do not think I would be able to cope in the Antarctic wilderness.
Susan Jang 10:07pm February 5, 2020)

I love survival movies (especially in the snow) but I don't
think I've actually read a book on the subject but it
definitely sounds awesome. I live in the south and don't
have much experience with snow and freezing temps....lol. I
hope that I would be able to bring forth any survival
techniques that I would have learned from movies or tv and
apply that to the best of my ability or hopefully I wouldn't
be alone and would have someone like Ford/hero to help me.
Thanks for the chance and congrats on your book.
Tina Alicea 10:37pm February 5, 2020)

Not well at all. Just bury me now. LOL
Linda Poindexter 10:31am February 6, 2020)

I am afraid I wouldn't survive. I dislike cold weather
Patty Wright 1:53pm February 6, 2020)

I don't mind the cold and if I had a hot guy to help me stay
warm...even better!
Rosie Hoskins 8:36pm February 6, 2020)

Going to the Antarctic would be horrible way to get a second
chance at life. Like my grandpa always said, "When Hell
freezes over."
Thomas Gibson 1:40am February 7, 2020)

Find somewhere warm and read books.
Susan Clickner 12:27pm February 7, 2020)

While I like to think I'd build an igloo or something
resourceful like that, I'd probably freeze to death in
Jill Miller 3:39pm February 7, 2020)

I don't think I would make it, I'd probably die pretty quickly.
Jennifer Cecil 10:31am February 8, 2020)

Im not sure I would cope well. I hate being cold. Thank you!
Beth Shepherd 7:41pm February 8, 2020)

I'm not sure how I would make it. I hate being cold. I guess I would try to find shelter and stay warm.
Victoria Kondovski 7:43pm February 8, 2020)

Shelter and warmth makes or breaks it here obviously. If I had a parka
and could make a snow shelter I'd have a shot.
Sandy Klocinski 6:35am February 9, 2020)

I wouldn’t be able to cope in those conditions. I guess I’d die.
Lori Byrd 5:20pm February 9, 2020)

I would try to survive with the skills I have learned from watching survival
shows, but I know they make it looks easier than it is.
Angela Saver 7:51pm February 9, 2020)

I guess I'd stay warm and read. I wouldn't like it there though!
Heather Amos 2:41pm February 10, 2020)

Does crying count ;) Thank you
