I picked up ALASKAN NIGHTS because ever since reading JULIE OF THE WOLVES as a kid, I’ve been obsessed with Alaska and will read pretty much any book set there. Since Alaskan Nights is a romance novella, I was expecting a short, cute, light read…and that is not what I got AT ALL. No, I got so much more! I was very impressed by the amount of depth, emotion, and darkness as well as light (because there *were* plenty of light, cute moments too) the author packed into this shorter read.From the moment love-interest Callder Murphy first opened his mouth and spoke, I fell in love with him—really. Callder is the kind of guy who has a snarky, immature response to everything: when he first appears in the book, he’s just run into the heroine’s asshole boss’s car, and he explains that he mistook it for a “trash can.” But he’s hiding real pain and real feelings under that immature exterior…As for the heroine, Brynne, she also has a lot of emotional depth to her character. One scene in the middle of the novella, when Brynne reaches what is probably her lowest point in the story, actually made me a little teary.I loved the descriptions of the Alaskan landscape in this book too, although I could have used even more of them. I hope the author gives us more stories about Bryne and Callder, and since I know her other books are set in Alaska too, I am going to check them out soon!
