Annabeth’s Personal Note on the Frozen Hearts Series Cover Reveal
First, big thank you to Frolic for having us! Second, I wanted to share with readers how excited I am for this new journey we’re about to take together. I have loved writing these books, and I can’t wait to bring them to you. If you’re a fan of my Out of Uniform series, you know that I love combining adventure and passionate romance, and that’s exactly what this series does—big scenery, big risks, big emotions. I’ve paired some of my favorite tropes—hurt/comfort, May/December, and snowbound—with an iconic setting that I think readers will love. I’ve loved the whole process of bringing this series to life and working with my fabulous Carina Press team as well as some amazing Alaskan writers as part of my beta reading team. The series starts with Arctic Sun and Griffin and River’s story is one of the most special love stories I’ve had the privilege of writing. I’m so excited for readers to meet them and start this new series with us as we thaw out some very deserving Frozen Hearts!
Book Description for ARCTIC SUN (eBook on-sale April 1, 2019 / MMP on-sale April 30, 2019)
He’s built a quiet life for himself in Alaska. But it doesn’t stand a chance against the unrelenting pull of a man who’s everything he shouldn’t want.
Ex-military mountain man Griffin Barrett likes his solitude. It keeps him from falling back into old habits. Bad habits. He’s fought too hard for his sobriety to lose control now. However, his gig as a wildlife guide presents a new kind of temptation in superhot supermodel River Vale. Nothing the Alaskan wilderness has to offer has ever called to Griffin so badly. And that can only lead to trouble…
River has his own methods for coping. Chasing adventure means always moving forward. Nobody’s ever made him want to stand still—until Griffin. The rugged bush pilot is the very best kind of distraction, but the emotions he stirs up in River feel anything but casual, and he’s in no position to stay put.
With temptation lurking in close quarters, keeping even a shred of distance is a challenge neither’s willing to meet. And the closer Griffin gets to River, the easier it is to ignore every last reason he should run.
Publisher’s Note: Arctic Sun deals with topics some readers may find difficult, including sobriety and eating disorders.
Book Description for ARCTIC WILD (eBook on-sale June 3, 2019 / MMP on-sale June 25, 2019)
When a plane crashes in the Alaskan wilderness, the best place to land is in the arms of a younger man…
Hotshot attorney Reuben Graham has finally agreed to take a vacation, when his plane suddenly plunges into the Alaskan wilderness.
Just his luck.
But his frustrations have only begun as he finds himself stranded with the injured, and superhot, pilot, a man who’s endearingly sociable—and much too young for Reuben to be wanting him this badly.
As the sole provider for his sisters and ailing father, Tobias Kooly is devastated to learn his injuries will prevent him from working or even making it back home. So when Reuben insists on giving him a place to recover, not even Toby’s pride can make him refuse. He’s never been tempted by a silver fox before, but something about Reuben is impossible to resist.
Recuperating in Reuben’s care is the last thing Toby expected, yet the closer they become, the more incredibly right it feels, prompting workaholic Reuben to question the life he’s been living. But when the pressure Toby’s under starts closing in, both men will have to decide if there’s room in their hearts for a love they never saw coming.
Book Description for ARCTIC HEAT (eBook on-sale September 23, 2019 / MMP on-sale September 24, 2019)
A lasting connection needs more than simply surviving a winter together—they’ll have to outsmart danger, let down their defenses and open their hearts.
Owen Han has a fresh lease on life—he’s kicked cancer’s ass and he’s well on his way to roaring through his bucket list. The former investment banker hopes to find his next challenge in Alaska as a seasonal winter volunteer, working alongside park rangers and fulfilling his childhood dreams of snowy winters and rustic life. Of course, those dreams did tend to feature big strapping mountain men in vivid detail…
Ranger Quilleran Ramsey would like to be anywhere other than other dealing with newbie volunteers. And really, the only thing he needs less than a greener-than-green volunteer “partner” is the flirty attentions of a buff city boy who sounds like a surfer and doesn’t look ready to last a week, let alone an Alaskan winter. Even as his traitorous body enjoys the flirting more than it should, Quill resolves to not get involved with Owen.
As the weeks pass, passion flares, and the two snowbound men give in to temptation. But can their seasonal romance last until Spring? For them to have a future together, each will have to trust the other…while hoping that the harsh elements and omnipresent dangers don’t destroy what happiness they’ve found in the moment.
Preorder for Arctic Heat coming soon!
