Beautiful Criminal (McCoy’s Boys #1)
Expected publication: June 9th 2015 by Lyrical Press
Long days, precious nights…
Mima Etu lives a quiet life with her sled dogs in the stunning Canadian Rockies. But that all changes when she stumbles upon a plane crash while out on a supply run. She’s shocked to discover the pilot is still alive—though barely. With the sun setting and the temperatures quickly dropping, Mima knows he’d never survive the trip to the nearest hospital. So she takes the stranger back to her cabin. As he heals, his vague answers to Mima’s questions about the flight tell her he has secrets. But more disturbing is the consuming, immediate attraction she senses between them.
Before he lost control of his Cessna and plunged into a pilot’s hell, Gabriel Miller was on a deadly mission with precious cargo. Now he’s awakened in the comfort of a log cabin with a gorgeous woman tending to his every need. Her soft-spoken beauty sparks his longing for a different kind of life….and it isn’t long before they surrender to a blazing passion. But their blissful days are numbered. For the owners of the cargo are bent on finding Gabriel—and once they do, they don’t intend to leave any witnesses behind.
About the author (from Goodreads)
Shady Grace (formerly known as BL Bonita) makes Northern Ontario her home, where the bush is so thick you can’t see two feet past the tree line. Perhaps the mystery of the woods was what initially sparked her need to write. She adores strong alpha males who fall for fiery, independent women, in settings with humorous dialogue and action-filled plots. Shady believes love and sex should be exciting and unforgettable. Being able to write about it is better than cheesecake.
From Northern Ontario??? Me too!!! Actually much of this book and the northern elements reminded me of places back home. Especially the stories of the bush pilots…the Mavericks of the North!
This was a fast story with some great heat between Gabriel and Mima. Both were not the biggest talkers and that also was quite true to life of the northern people I knew. The angst was almost believable, but totally enjoyable. I am looking forward to the other books since it seems that the author set up some great characters, which I hope travel back and forth from the north to the city. Not to give anything away, but fun, fast novella with steam! Enjoy!
