2.0 out of 5 stars Unrealistic to the extreme
This book has been written to be a thriller/suspense novel with a romance at the heart of it. Set in Alaska it concerns Wade, a member of the military who rescues people by jumping out of a helicopter and Sunny who lives in a secluded village and becomes involved in a rescue when she is mistaken for part of a stricken party of walkers.

There is much more to this book that the previous reviewer didnt cover. It is a must read.

Pararescuman Wade Rocha thought he was on a simple mission. He parachutes from the back of a helicopter to rescue a climber stranded on an Aleutan Island during a blizzard and is put in a precarious situation with a woman - Sunny Foster - who doesnt want to be rescued. Sunny has other ideas and insists she can take care of herself.

The snowstorm kicks into overdrive and they find a cave to shelter for the night. They can't resist the urge to keep each other warm....... but Wade knows Sunny is in trouble and is running from something. What is she hiding from Wade?

The discovery of frozen remains and the inablility to trust the local police Sunny and Wade start their own investigation.

I was hooked from the opening sentence of the first page "A wolf like snarl cut the thickly howling air. Sunny Foster stayed statue still. Five feet away, fangs flashed white as piercing icicles glinting through the dusky evening sunset".

This book has it all for me. A bracing thriller with a difference. A strong willed heroine, a sensitive hard boiled hero, a real bad guy.
I cant wait for number two to be released on 6 December.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cover me - steamy thriller despite the cold climate backdrop!, 18 Oct. 2011

Pararescue jumper Wade Rocha literally jumps from a helicopter to rescue Sunny. The extreme weather means they are stranded overnight and during that time Wade finds out she didn't need rescuing. An intriguing thriller as Wade sets out to find Sunny's secrets, meanwhile plenty of near brushes with death and lots of hot hot sex!

This book has been written to be a thriller/suspense novel with a romance at the heart of it. Set in Alaska it concerns Wade, a member of the military who rescues people by jumping out of a helicopter and Sunny who lives in a secluded village and becomes involved in a rescue when she is mistaken for part of a stricken party of walkers.

The implausibilities and inconsistencies are legion - you really wonder if anyone has checked this book before publication.

Sunny is supposed to come from a secluded village in Alaska with a population of 150. No one in authority is supposed to know that it exists - difficult to believe in the days of satellites. There is no description of how those people earn a living nor how they import food and other necessities without anyone knowing that they are there - but they do have a gym and a small hospital although the number of inhabitants seems inadequate to sustain these facilities. Sunny is determined to keep the existence of the village secret but when she discovers that a number of people she thought had left the village had actually been killed she immediately tells all the authorities about it and shows them the location.

Wade decides that since Sunny has been protecting her brother who is a deserter he cannot have a relationship with her - although no one seems to take any time to find out why he has deserted. He also thinks that a relationship is doomed because he is shortly to be deployed to Afghanistan. By the end of the novel he seems to have overcome both these barriers although we are not quite sure how as after they are mentioned once he seems to forget about them altogether and they are never alluded to again.

The bad guy is a computer whizz who can intercept e-mail messages from the village and send back messages of his own, pretending to be the people who have left. He doesn't intercept all the messages though and there seems no logic to this. When he plants a bomb in a power station the authorities evacuate the inhabitant of the "secret" village who may be able to assist and then take them to a location where the FBI, etc. can speak to them, and where is this location - right next to the power station !

The above is just a sample of the stupidities which litter this book. Romantic suspense/thillers are not required to be brutally realistic but they should be substantially better than this.
