I pulled my stranger from the river. Breathed life into his lungs.

I saved him in this arctic tundra. Yet he looks at me like a meal. Touches me like I’m his greatest temptation.

Tells me he desires my body to use in a way I’ve never offered myself before.

Storm raging outside my cabin, there is little to do to escape him. Little chance I might survive this encounter unscathed.

He wants life. My life. And I have no choice but to offer it.

And I don’t harbor a single regret.

A Night by my Fire by Addison Cain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a novella-length read one that I really enjoyed. It is the story of River and Stephen, the former a woman living alone isolated out in the wilderness away from civilisation and the latter a stone-cold assassin who has been betrayed and left for dead by his former employer. When River rescues Stephen from the water half dead their paths collide. stranded together this hard man needs River for his very survival. Stephen is cold analytical and extremely literal, River is his opposite hot-headed and unlike anything, he has ever known from his former life. Slowly he becomes fascinated with the wild woman he is currently playing house with and when these two forces of nature finally collide it was epic. This may have been short but it still had all the feels and the unfolding story had no trouble capturing and retaining my attention throughout. Would adore a sequel to this as the ending was just so bittersweet, now that really would make my day as this feels like there’s still more to River and Stephen’s story.

I voluntary reviewed a copy of A Night By My Fire.
