Sometimes old flames are the hottest of all . . .

In the quaint little town of Cailkirn, Alaska, it's impossible to keep a secret, especially one as juicy as the unexpected return of Kitty Grant. Tack MacKinnon remembers her wild red curls and even wilder spirit—and still feels the sting from when she shattered his heart in college. But there's a pain in Kitty's gorgeous eyes that guts him to the core, and Tack is determined to do whatever it takes to see the woman he still loves smile again—even if it means taking on her demons as his own.

After fleeing an abusive ex-husband, Kitty decides that the best way to heal her broken heart is to come back home. But she gets a whole new shock when she sees how undeniably sexy Tack has become. More handsome, more muscular, more charming—more everything—he's impossible to resist. Before she knows it, they're reigniting sparks that could set the whole state of Alaska on fire. Yet trust doesn't come easy to Kitty anymore, and as things heat up between her and Tack, she can't help but wonder if one of them is going to get burned . . .

Kassiah: This is the first book by Lucy Monroe that I’ve read, but it definitely won’t be my last. I love Reunion stories, and this one, though not completely a reunion story, has a very interesting premise. Eight years ago Tack MacKinnon and Caitlin (Kitty) Grant were best friends before she moved away, marrying an abusive husband and developing an eating disorder. Now that she’s back, Tack wants to help her but can’t allow himself to fall for her again.

So, maybe he could forgive her for pushing him away. Didn’t mean he was going to give her another crack at his heart, but that woman was still way too close to broken for him to turn away from her now.

She needed to be reminded of who Kitty Grant was at the core of her sould, of the fearless woman who had talked him into attending university twenty-five hundred miles away.

Tack was just the man for the job.

No, he would not love her again, but damned if he’d stand by and watch Kitty Grant live like a wraith among the people of Cailkirn.

He does want her to get back to being Kitty again and entices her with kissing–then more–if she’ll eat. Will these two forgive the past and allow themselves to fall in love despite what they’ve both been through?

I liked the pacing of this story–it’s a fast read and nothing drags out, which was refreshing. I also really enjoyed the setting. I’m not sure I’ve read anything else set in Alaska and I think Monroe captured it all perfectly. Sometimes the MCs drove me crazy and despite the unique storyline, this was a predictable read. There were some hot sexy times, though.

“I’m going to make you come,” he promised. “You’re going to scream my name.”

I liked the other characters, too, and am looking forward to what Monroe does with them in the future.

With an interesting plot and likable characters, I think romance lovers should check out Wild Heat.
