He’s all about second chances…
Anders loves winter and the wilderness, so a trip to the Swiss Alps to retrieve a glaciologist is right up his alley. When he realizes who he’s picking up, he can’t help but smile at fate.
He’d walked away last time he’d seen her because staying was so damn wrong… Now he can’t wait for a chance to reconnect – especially now that she’s no longer engaged…
An expert in an otherwise male-dominated field, Angela has spent her life studying snow and ice in order to cope with the never-ending heartaches associated with her parents’ divorce and her own ex-fiancé’s betrayal. When Anders comes barreling back into her life, to take her home on her father’s orders, she’s not amused... and she has absolutely no intention of obeying.
Particularly not when she understands why her father demands her return.
Anders can feel the undercurrents, but she won’t explain what’s going on…
Can they bury their differences before danger overtakes them both and his dream of a future together dies before it’s ever had a chance to start?
The next guy on the soon to be losing his single status is up!
Anders and and team head to to the Swiss Alps to save a woman from being killed.
The catch is.....a year ago they met!
Angelica (Angel) met Anders a year ago and felt a connection, but she was engaged.
Anders walked away and now needs to save her life.
Angel broke off her engagement and is not happy to go to home to be saved from death. She still feels sparks from him and Anders knows that they belong together.
Together they must stay alive and unravel the mystery of why she is wanted dead.
Good, fast read
I was kindly provided this book as an ARC; in exchange for my honest review. This is book 16 of 17 in the Heroes for Hire series. This book centers around Anders and Angelica (Angel). Anders is a newer hire for the Texas based Heroes for Hire paramilitary group run by Levi and Ice. Angel is a woman Anders met the year before; he kind of started something hot with her, only for her to “blast” him with the info that she’s become engaged to the other guy she’d been dating. Angel works as a scientist measuring glacier shrinking & movement. Anders & his team of 4 men (Harrison, Reyes, Dezi, & North (who was written to appear in beginning-but was left out??)) ate hired to locate Angel at the top of a glacier, protect her & transport her home. The story evolves somewhat unexpectedly in the beginning; but then wasn’t a “huge” surprise in the end. I will say I thought my dad would have won “worst father of the year” many times over, but, Angel’s dad definitely takes the cake on this one. This is a fast & fairly entertaining read. I’d probably give it 3 1/2 stars, but I’m going the glass half-full route as Ms. Dale’s an incredible author.
