How does an elegant Manhattan reporter deal with the fact that two rows behind her in the airplane is a guy out of her dreams and he’s staring at her legs? How does an Alaskan traveling to New York to advertise for potential wives deal with the fact that a dream woman is sitting two rows ahead of him and he’s just caught a glimpse of stockings and – a garter!
As you can see, the romance begins to boil between uptown woman Kay Freemont and wilderness guy Quinn Scofield right from the start of this fun novel! Kay is all city-girl, from her Ferragamos to her carefully manicured nails and her Sassoon haircut. Quinn is Alaska all the way, with a body made for snowshoeing, shearling jackets and long winter nights in front of the fire! They are totally wrong for each other – and of course, rapidly falling in lust!!!
Quinn has come to New York on behalf of the bachelors from his hometown of Bear Creek, Alaska – he needs to attract women to the tiny town, but has to be honest – it’s a wild life under less than luxurious conditions. Kay has to follow the story, and where else can she do that but in Bear Creek? The fact that she has also decided it’s time for some sexual enlightenment in her life is a nice, and convenient, coincidence.
Watching the merry dance between these two under crisp Alaskan skies is marvelous fun – here is a book that has all the elements of a true romance. Mismatched hero and heroine, picture-perfect settings, delightful secondary characters, and a great plot involving the development of self-awareness and the awakening of true love – can we ask for more?
This is a perfect beach read, or anytime read, and I can’t wait to find out about the rest of the Bear Creek Bachelors – if they have as much fun as Quinn, I know I won’t be disappointed.
