It didn’t take long to realize Lafortune skillfully blends suspense throughout her novel. Sure, there are steamy sex scenes one would expect to find in any romance novel, but it is the ever-present uncertainty and surprise that kept me reading.
Lyra, an angelic wisp of a woman, loses control of her car on a winter road far from home and careens to what appears to be an icy death--that is, until she’s rescued by Ryker Steel. Ryker is a rugged man’s man living with his dog in the middle of nowhere. A former DEA officer, Ryker dropped off the grid to escape the death of his wife, Bella, a victim of a hit-and-run driver. He also feared whoever targeted Bella may also be looking for him.
By rescuing Lyra, she became Ryker’s prisoner. Allowing her to leave would disclose Ryker’s location, risking his life. To say Lyra warmed up to the idea of being Ryker’s prisoner would be an understatement. Even though Lyra had a long-term lover, Gage, waiting for her at home, she made the best of her captivity. Lyra quickly fell in lust and then in love with Ryker. The book started out like Stephen King’s novel “Misery,” with the snowy crash and the rescued victim becoming a prisoner. The big difference was Lyra came to enjoy being bound to the bed.
Lyra’s quickly forsaking what appeared to be a happy life, was a bit of a stretch, but one I was willing to make to get to the heart of the story. The uncertainty of Ryker and Lyra’s fate kept the novel twisting and turning, providing sufficient suspense to keep me flipping pages on my Kindle Fire.
I’m new to romance novels, but I thought the book could’ve contained fewer sex scenes. Halfway through, I found myself skipping from the first hint of clothes being removed to the final erotic moan. Still, the novel was well written with interesting characters and ample suspense, even for someone who favors action adventure and suspense novels.
Lyra Harper was driving home to spend the holidays with her family. She lost control of her car on an icy mountain road, leaving her in a very precarious situation.
Ryker Steel is living the life of a hermit. His cabin is remote from neighbors or civilization. His only companion his faithful dog Cody. On a cold January morning, after burying his wife, Ryker had climbed into his black SUV, never to be seen or heard from again. It is his dog Cody that alerts Ryker that there is a car sitting precariously close to the edge of falling into Lake Lucerne.
Ryker's life had been tedious and tiresome. Until he rescued a dainty girl with golden hair and hazel eyes, that looked uncannily like his dead wife. Now his quiet life has been turned upside down and inside out. I'll say no more but let you all enjoy the story as it unfolds.
There was clearly more of a suspense element to this novel. And there were more twists than a fairground ride. So much so, that at times, it was a little difficult to keep up.
That said, the character development and connections were both cohesive and electric. I am not generally a big fan of love triangle scenarios, but that extra dimension made a difference to the overall narrative, and turned what could have been a mediocre read into something a little more enticing.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
