Ana Davis has been given the promotion of the century—from secretary to television producer. But the new job is not without its problems. The network will do anything for ratings. In the executive’s scramble to come out on top, they reveal Ana’s newest show—one she’s forced to star in herself. She’ll have to survive in the Arctic Circle for twelve days. If she wins, she’ll get the prize money she desperately needs. But the stakes are high, she could lose her very life. Good thing she’s been paired with expert survivalist William “Redd” Redding, a mysterious, solitary and very sexy man. Too bad she thinks he doesn’t even want to talk to her.

William “Redd” Redding is a former Special Ops Marine in need of cash to help a cause near and dear to his heart. What he’s not in need of, however, is Ana Davis—his clueless but captivating partner. It’s up to Redd to ensure the two of them survive in the most dangerous, hostile environment of all. But worse than snowstorms, predators, and a scarcity of food is an even greater danger—Ana. Resisting her, when he wants her more than anything, is his hardest challenge yet. How does he go about protecting her when his ultimate goal is to protect his heart?

Although "Desire in the Arctic" is the sequel to "Desire in the Everglades," it may be read as a stand-alone novel.

Desire in the Arctic is the sequel to Everglades by Stacy Hoff.  After reading Everglades, I was looking forward to this one because I LOVE snow.  Weird, I know, but I do.  I love winter, I want to visit Alaska, I love snow and the cold.  This one delivered just as much as Everglades did!

In Arctic, we meet Ana and Redd.  Ana Davis is promoted to producer for the same company that produced, “Evergladiator.” William “Redd” Redding is the ex Special Ops Marine whose main focus is to win the prize money for a reason very near and dear to his heart.  The problem? As the producer, Ana is to go along.  Premise here is the same as Everglades but a completely different setting and I loved that.

Their relationship was definitely a “slow burn” which was frustrating only because of Redd but I loved the push and the pull of their story.  Redd was very hard to read, he was definitely the strong, silent type but he has his reasons.  Ana definitely proves herself when it matters.  The characters held my interest as did the story.  Again, the ending felt a bit rushed but I truly enjoyed diving into their story.
