Find out why readers say “picking up a Northstar book feels like coming home” with this two-book series-starting box set:
FIRST INSTINCT (Northstar - Book 1)
Life-long friends Beth Carlyle and Nick Hammond haven’t ever pushed the limits of their relationship. But when her boyfriend turns violent and Nick jumps in to protect her, everything changes.
In the chaos following that horrible night, Nick becomes Beth’s anchor as she pulls the pieces of herself together. She never imagined he’d be anything more than her best friend, but with her trust shattered, there’s only one place she feels safe—in his arms. Boundaries crumble and new desires ignite. With her heart a tangled mess, how can she know what’s real?
Nick is willing to do whatever it takes to help Beth recover, no matter the cost to himself, but in the face of undeserved consequences, he may be the one who needs saving. Protecting the man she loves means bringing her nightmare into the light. Will she find the courage to reveal the truth before Nick pays the ultimate price?
MOUNTAIN ANGEL (Northstar - Book 2)
A strong-willed woman, a heart-weary deputy, and a cozy mountain cabin. What could possibly go wrong… or right?
Fiercely independent, Aelissm Davis prefers to manage her own affairs. But when an obsessive friend refuses to take no for an answer, it’s time to call in reinforcements. Unfortunately, her meddling uncle’s solution—send his best deputy “on vacation” to protect her—could be an even bigger complication.
For three years, Pat O’Neil has buried himself in his work to get past a violent relationship, and it hasn’t done him any good. This assignment to protect his boss’s niece could be just what he needs. Aelissm is an irresistible breath of fresh mountain air, but as his heart learns how to breathe again, her past entwines with his and trouble comes knocking. Will she let him do his job or will her stubbornness put them both in danger?
A NOTE ON THE CONTENT: The Northstar books are contemporary romances and contain some profanity and sensual scenes that may not be suitable for sensitive readers.
Neither one thing or the other
On the one hand these books are light weight love stories, on the other they deal with rape, attempted rape, stalking, abuse, assault etc. It just doesn’t gel.
The rape story comes with a trigger warning, but even though I have no experience of this issue it made for unpleasant reading. In both books I felt like it flipped between the two storylines and dragged on.
This author approaches difficult subjects in a thoughtful and kind manner. Well worth reading.
