My rating: PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket I really liked this.

This is what the book is about.
Dr. Emilie Saunderson is driven to finish her late husband's research. Her quest brings her to Antarctica, where she hopes to find a measure of peace in the isolated and icy wilderness. It's the last place on earth she expects to be given a second chance at love.

Tom Wolinski loves his work at the bottom of the world. Damaged by his dark past, he has vowed never to get close to anyone—a promise that's easy to keep in a place with no permanent residents. That is, until Emilie arrives, and he's irresistibly drawn to her warmth and inner strength.

Emilie has no desire to get involved with another adventurer, and Tom has made it clear he's not interested in putting down roots. But as they work together to survive in the harshest of climates, they turn to one another for comfort. Is the heat between them enough to melt the ice around their hearts, and bind them together forever?

This is what I thought about it.
This was a sweet story of learning to love again after tragedy.
This was defiantly a feel good book and I read it with a smile on my face most of the way through. I liked that it was not all plain sailing or all hot an heavy. It felt like you were being shown real people with all their quirks. I have to say the bit I liked best was the decompression/distraction technique Tom used, its worth reading just for that visual.

Have you read this book?? What did you think? What rating would you give it?
