Haunted by what he lost in Afghanistan, Captain Jack Turner is at a crossroads. While the last place he wants to go is the Arctic, at least the routine mission gets him out from behind his new desk.

The Arctic is endless ice and northern lights. It’s intense cold and bone-deep loneliness. Kin Carsen knows. The Arctic is his home. Kin is a teacher and a ranger. His life is peaceful and predictable. Until the day he meets Jack.

Jack left a piece of himself behind in Afghanistan. He’s drifting, going through the motions, but he’s not living, not really. Sent to the Arctic on a discovery mission, Jack thinks the whole thing is pointless. But his commander insists. He knows Jack needs . . . somet

Ohhhh, I REALLY liked this one! Keira Andrews knows how to write a story!

Freezing cold weather, snuggling up in sleeping bags, slow burn, military men, and LOTS of feels all in 100 pages??? How does Keira Andrews do it?! And, I'm beginning to suspect that between my love of cold weather stories and my emerging love of hockey romances that I was secretly meant to be Canadian...

When I saw the blurb for this story, I was really intrigued. I mean, gay men in the arctic? I WANTED. However, novella-l

After losing all hope to find love again, Jack, former liutenenat in Afghanistan goes on a minor mission in the far lands of Canada and there he meets Kin, a closeted lonely Ranger . They like each other, give themselves a chance to feel again, but cautious that their time is limited.

I'd like more action between them and I think this story was too short. But, it was sweet, nonetheless.

When you think there's no hope to feel again, destiny finds surprising ways to show you that you're wrong and th

3.5 northern stars round up to 4 because still no 1/2 stars here on GR and because IT'S CANADA!!!

I'm pretty sure that I haven't read as many Keira Andrews books as some of my friends and while part of the reason I wanted to read this one was the author, I have to honestly admit an equally big part of that reason was because this book takes place in Canada. It's set in the part that's north of the Arctic Circle...that part that is really, really cold...as in I'm not even sure I can explain how tr

Oi, this one started off so well, and then it kind of just pitter pattered at the end.

Why? Well, it had all the elements I appreciate in romance:

1. Great characters.
2. Captivating plot. The characters' backstory and the setting of the book were interesting. Big points for that.
3. The romance had enemies to lovers feel to it.
4. Dual POV.
5. Excellent chemistry between the two MCs. I love a slow burn- and this one was executed perfectly.

But the ending just threw all those feelings out the window.

Bueeeeeeeno :/. Entre las dos y las tres estrellas, demasiado insta para mi, muy poco recorrido de la relación, quizás porque es una novella. No me ha dicho mucho, la verdad, nada del otro mundo, a veces aburrido... Meh. Tres y soy generosa. Sorry.

My new novella is now available to buy and borrow at Amazon:

US: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MQ4TIEO
Global: http://mybook.to/ArcticFire_KA

It'll be available at all sellers after three months after the KU term expires. This novella was first published two years ago in an M/M military men bundle, and I've tweaked it in the meantime. I've waited because I really want to write more for Jack and Kin, but there are so many stories competing in my head! Isaac and David (and Rafa and Shane!) are getting

Arctic Fire was originally published in the Unconditional Surrender Anthology, so if you have that anthology, you've already got this story.

I loved that Keira Andrews was able to make this novella seem like a touch of a slow burn while actually having some heat (without insta-love). And the ending is an HFN, which seems authentic to the time span in which the story takes place (just a few days). I thought Arctic Fire was a gorgeous story about two men who never thought they would actually find a

is a Canadian Ranger, who is native to the area he patrols. Educated down south in Edmonton, he came back to his roots, to teach and protect.

Keira Andrews is a phenomenal author.
It doesn't matter whether MCs are lost on a tropical island or dealing with the dangers of the arctic, or anything else indeed - it always comes out a top notch novel.
Needless to say that I loved Arctic Fire.

The chemistry between Kin and Jack is tangible right from the beginning, and as their backstories slowly unravel, they start getting closer. But what they feel isn't just lust, there is definitely more there - an understanding, a connection they share tha

Considering this book is only 100 pages, I knew my expectation is going to be lower. However, Arctic Fire still gives a really good story, with both fleshed out characters that got me connected to them. I love the Arctic setting and enjoy knowing about their cultures and custom.

We have Captain Jack Turner who used to serve in Afghanistan and now he got a new assignment to the Arctic. Well, it does sounds like a redundant trip, and Jack doesn't seem enthusiastic about it at all. I mean, who woul

As someone who was born and raised and always lived somewhere that's warm almost year round, I found all the atmospheric details more like a horror story. I got cold just reading the descriptions of how they traveled and lived. I would die if my pee froze when it came out. If frozen, raw seal was the go to snack. If I had to get out of my warm tent regularly to check for polar bears. *shuddering* But....the fact that I was shuddering through most of this shows how well the author did at world bu ...more

“Arctic Fire” by Keira Andrews is a novella, the kind of which we get every year by this author during the holidays. The main element of this book is hope; hope to move on, hope to find love, hope to be free and hope to belong. There is a high amount of feels in this story. The MCs are both suffering from losses and trying to cope with the present when they meet. In the frozen land of Arctic, they find something special enough to give them the ever important “HOPE” for a better future t

How can an author pack so much feeling into only 100 pages?

I've always said I don't like novellas because I don't have time to get to know and bond with the characters. I now have to stop saying that. Keira Andrews made me a convert.

There is nothing missing in this short story. I met and got to know Jack and Kin. Two strong, capable men. Each with lingering aftershocks of trauma in their past. While we only see a few days of their time together, I'd still call this a slow-burn.

3.5, redondeo a cuatro porque los protas hacen piececitos en la cama y yo soy muy de apreciar estos pequeños detalles xD
Kin y Jack son muy monos y la Keira sabe montar escenas guarrer como nadie (view spoiler)
Una pena que la historia se queda corta y te quedas con las ganas de saber más de ellos, además que la autora nos remienda la cosa de forma bastante apresurada y poco creíble. Pero, en definitiva, he pasado muy buen rato con estos

Review originally posted at Sinfully.

This is a short one, but Keira Andrews gets the job done with sexual tension, a beautiful but dangerous landscape, and two hurting men who suit each other better than they expected.

Things don’t get off to a great start between Canadian Ranger Kin Carsen and Captain Jack Turner. Jack basically lets Kin know that he thinks he’s wasting his time on this trip. He’s disgruntled about his job and it shows. Things have not gone well since his return from Afghanista

This was the first story I ever read from Keira Andrews (in Unconditional Surrender - An M/M Military Bundle) and it still remains a personal favourite M/M novella of mine.

Jack and Kin are a great M/M couple. Their story features some truly enjoyable getting-to-know-you banter, with lots of amazing pop culture references and an MC who speaks in hilarious acronyms. There are also some seriously sexy tent times; a heart-stopping action scene that had me positively flustered; some delicious

This book was the perfect sweet, sexy pick-me up that I needed at the end of a busy week.
Recommended for anyone who likes sweet, hot romance and is in the mood for a novella rather than a full-length novel. The arctic setting was lovely too and there was just enough hurt/comfort to make the romance all the sweeter. Two men trapped in a tent during a blizzard? Hell yes, sign me up.

Arctic Fire is on the shorter side, but it still delivers everything I've come to expect from Keira Andrews.

Home from Afghanistan, Captain Jack Turner is sent to the far arctic to the Nunavut Province to evaluate if a permanent naval training base is needed in the area. As Jack and his soldiers know the sand well from the middle east, they are not trained as well for the Arctic. Not thrilled with going to sub-zero temperatures in a dry town with nothing really to do, Jack trudges up and meets his guide, Sergeant Kin Carsen. Kin is short for Kinguyakkii, a native, he left for college but came home to t ...more

Loved it. Amazing story but definitely way too short.
The HFN at the end is giving me the hope that Jack and Kin's story isn't told yet, though.

I need more 'Artic Fire', more from Kin and ,Nini' (Jack's adorable nickname).

And... I need to get to know Neville!!!!

This one suits my mood for fluffy romance right now. And I like it when the settings make me look up on the internet to get more details. I could feel the snow crunching under my boots and the cold seeping in my bones and imagine being enthralled by the Aurorae Borealis.

And let’s be honest, what’s not to like : Keira Andrews, Canada, a hot ranger meets a sexy military man and they spend a few nights in a tent in the tundra, mmhhh….

It’s a short read, with dependable characters (I may have a book

One thing I can say about this book is it deals with some very heavy issues, in a very short span of time, very well!

Kin and Jack are great characters, there's so much depth to them and they both take such a self discovering journey over the span of this week. I can't believe this book is only set over a week, I get their relationship, you know? That doesn't happen often with books that are so short.

Loved their passion when they were together as well, I would've liked more sex, but nothing pleas

After writing for years yet never really finding the right inspiration, Keira discovered her voice in gay romance, which has become a passion. She writes contemporary, historical, paranormal and fantasy fiction, and—although she loves delicious angst along the way—Keira firmly believes in happy endings.
