Call Hawkings enjoys the quiet of the Yukon. The previous owner of the cabin that Charity bought was an old man who never bothered Call at all. Now, all his new neighbor did was bother him. It has been four years since the auto accident in Lake Tahoe that took the lives of his wife and daughter, and Call is just starting to live again. Now that Charity is in his life it feels like his heart has been jump started, and he knows he doesn't like the feeling. After being celibate for four years, all Call wanted was a sexual relationship with no strings attached. Unfortunatley the only person he wanted wasn't into one night stands.
Martin keeps the sexual tension running high in Midnight Sun. The reader will be fascinated by the description of the rugged country that these two come together in. The suspense was enjoyable, but not enough to keep a suspense lover hooked. The book starts off slow at first with, in my opinion, too much information on the Yukon and gold panning. Martin also includes 'inherited memory' in which Charity gets memories from one of her descendants. She then embarks on the task of finding out which ancestor was on the Yukon in the late 1800's. The reason I gave it four stars is because it didn't hook me like all her other contemporary novels, or even her historicals.
Above all, I would give it a try!
McCall Hawkins, powerhouse CEO in the software industry, is living in self-imposed exile in the Yukon, unable to cope with the loss of his wife and daughter in a car accident four years ago. In the past several months, he has resumed work on a project he was involved with at the time of the accident, and ever so slowly re-emerging in the tech world. Along comes Charity, disrupting his quiet world by banging away on repairs to her property. Call decides to see what the new neighbor is up to, and is unable from that point on to stay out of her life. They get off to a tumultuous start, but the relationship quickly turns passionate. Unknowingly, the past is once again coming back to haunt Call, and after two attempts on his and Charity's lives, Call has to lay it all on the line to keep Charity safe. Once the dust settles, Charity is forced back to Manhattan, leaving the man she knows she loves beyond all others behind. Call still swears never to love again, but will this journey end here?
This wilderness journey captivates, and makes you wish you were there to experience the sights. The balance of romance outweighs the suspense, but not by much. Secondary characters, Maude and Toby add whit and humor, and even a touch of paranormal is thrown in for good measure. True romantics will savor the ending, along with all the events leading up to it. Another great read from this compelling author!
