Alaska State Trooper Skip Ozhuwan has waited five years to reunite with Wren Terni, the woman he's always loved. Flying back home for his sister's wedding with only him and Wren in a chartered bush plane guarantees he'll have her undivided attention.
Ever since Skip arrested her five years earlier, Wren vowed never to lay eyes on him again. She's gotten sober and made a life for herself that she's proud of. Seeing Skip now throws her into a tailspin.
When the plane crashes, they are forced to battle a violent arctic storm, outwit predators, and dispose of a dead body. They must find a way to get past their differences if they are to survive to have a future together.
That is, if they don't kill each other first.
"Get out of your wet clothes," Skip said, following behind her, shrugging off his coat. "See if you can find my bag. If we don't get dry, I don't have to tell you how much trouble we'll be in."
Hypothermia. Number one killer in the state of Alaska.
She headed into the tail of the plane. "What does your bag look like?"
"Blue and gold."
She should have known. Trooper colors. She bet his uniform was in his bag. Damn he looked good in his trooper uniform. She'd never admit it, but her good intentions would weaken to mush when he was all gussied up. Hell, who was she kidding? She'd never had good intentions back then. She barely had them now.
She found his bag, and under it were boxes of food. Lots of food. Someone had gone to Costco!
"There's food!" Her stomach growled. She turned and tossed Skip's bag toward him and then swiveled back to the food.
"Change your clothes first," Skip said.
She glared at him from over her shoulder. "You knew there was food?"
"Yes." He bent, and one-handed, unzipped his bag.
"You couldn't have said something?"
He paused and looked at her from under his brows. "Been kinda busy with other things."
"But I'm hungry."
"You're cold too. You're probably so cold that you don't feel it anymore. Now, get out of those wet clothes, or I'll have to warm you up myself. And there will be nudity."

"Excellent read! I loved this short story so much. Great characters, location, humor. I especially loved being in Wren's POV. She's a funny, funny girl! I couldn't ask for much more. Very pleased with this, and was very entertained as well. I'd read it again, and I can't wait to read the other books in the series." ~ Amazon Reviewer
