Ok... I normally don't read Harlequin books but I saw this on the shelf as I was putting books away at my bookstore and it sounded good. Well, it wasn't good, it was great!! It kept me reading until I finished the book in one sitting. Now I have to get the first one in the Nocturne series which I believe is The Wolven and be on the lookout for the next one. I have already made this series the next on my bookclubs list.
I normally read books with a lot of explicit sex scenes but I found that the
I generally like stories set in Alaska and stories about shape shifters, so I was really looking forward to reading this one. It had an interesting premise but, overall, the book was a disappointment. I never really engaged with the characters nor did I buy into the supposed sexual attraction between them, the writing style was a bit too simple for my tastes, and I was thrown out of the story when reading about flying squirrels and grizzlies living on a glacier. I've been to Alaska twice and had ...more

Totally not for me... It was predictable from page one, and boring. I almost didn't make it through the whole book... But I kept hoping it would get better.
This is the second book in the Alpha Force series.

Lt Patrick Worley, a member of the very secret Alpha Force, is undercover in Alaska to find out why all of a sudden all the glaciers are breaking up. Mariah Garvey is there to cover the Great Glacier to cover the ice break up and it's effect upon wildlife for the magazine that she writes for. She hires Patrick in his undercover job, to take her out dogsledding into the area that they are both interested in. After a day out on the ice the local re

Writing clear but seemed rushed to the point where the complex suspense and intrigue were overly contrived. Supporting characters with complex motivations need to be drawn in greater detail rather than presented as wax manikins on whom to hang plot twists. The primary romance is of course the purpose of the book but even that seems too pat and overly contrived. Werewolf shape shifting is really a minor element, rather like pepper sprinkled on a salad.
this book is well written, altho the ending is rather abrupt. The bood is second in the series, not as listed @ goodreads. proper order @ Amazon. #2.5 available there w/out collection inconvenience.
Utter dreck. This is one of those books that makes me wonder why I don't give romance writing a shot.

I started this book at some point maybe last year and had a hard time getting into it. I picked it back up and it got better but...the story line never really drew me in. I LOVED the 1st book in the series. But was disappointed with this one. Too much mystery..not enough romance. I still give it 3 stars it was an ok read nothing extraordinary.
The first in the Alpha Force series, not to be confused with J.D Tyler's Alph Pack, I actually quite liked this one. It was a quick read, the characters were likeable and the plot, although predictable at points, held my interest to the end.
Also, das Buch war wirklich besser, als ich erwartet hatte, nachdem ich gesehen habe, dass es in der "Nocturne"-Reihe erschienen ist, hatte ich eher Schund erwartet, aber es war wirklich ein netter Zeitvertreib.
Très court et plutôt banal malgré la localisation inhabituelle (Alaska). Je trouve le côté loup-garou peu exploité, et j'ai des doutes sur le long terme du couple.
Quick read. What I like is that it is part of a series so even though it was quick I can still read more of the ongoing conflict and related characters.
This was really better than I expected from a Harlequin romance. I hadn't read any since the formula books in the 80's I guess things have changed :)
To continue the movie metaphor - this is still a movie-of-the-week but it was filmed on location in Alaska...

He is job is to uncover the truth behind a series of explosions, and she is in his way smart and cute.....
This was an ok book. It needed a little more meat to it.

Made it to page 80 or so. Just not my kind of read.
