But arriving unexpectedly to join her brother on a scientific expedition was Rory's way of putting her rich-girl past behind her. She had come prepared for the challenge of the rugged land. What she wasn't ready for was the raw power of nature she discovered in the arms of a ma ...more

I think this must have been an early Barbara Delinsky book. I really enjoy most of her work. This was just okay. The story was not really believable to me.

Rory is a young 21 year old who has been pampered all of her life, growing up in luxury. Dad left, mom has died, and Rory is left with a brother, Daniel, who is 12 years older and is very protective of her.

Daniel is in the wilds of Canada doing Journalism work, when Rory decides to follow him. She is not accustomed to this life that he is liv

"No one, least of all Rory herself, could ever have imagined naive and pampered Rory Matthews in the wilderness of the Yukon Territory. But arriving unexpectedly to join her brother on a scientific expedition was Rory's way of putting her spoiled, rich girl past behind her. She came prepared for the challenge of the rugged land. What she wasn't ready for was the raw power of nature she discovered, not in the majestic terrian, but in the arms of a man who perplexed her as much as he intrigued her ...more

I'm not a fan. The relationship between the couple in this story was not believable nor did it seem healthy. Lots of gratuitous scenes that were not based in any real kind of affectionate relationship. I know this is an older book of Barbara Delinsky's that she originally published under a pseudonym but I am not inclined to pick up another novel of hers by choice.

Nothing spectacular, but a nice read. It irritated me a little, that the hero was hot and cold and hot and cold and he couldn't decide whether he wanted her enough to listen to what she has to say or not. And the heroine - too much crying, but I think it is due to the period when the book was written, so I can forgive it. In one word - nice, one-evening read.

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk ...more
