Contemporary Romance

Coming home was never the plan

After a terrible family fight, pilot Dodge Kingston left home to join the Air Force. A decade later, he's headed back to the destiny that awaits him as heir to Sky King Ranch. But that's not all that's waiting for him at home.

Echo Yazzie is a true Alaskan woman--a homesteader, dogsledder, and research guide for the DNR. After her childhood best friend and former flame, Dodge, fled Denali, she settled into life on the Alaskan range. She's made her peace with being left behind--by her mother and by Dodge. And she's strong enough to live without them.

When one of Echo's fellow researchers goes missing, Echo sets out to find her, despite a blizzard, a rogue grizzly haunting the woods, and the biting cold. What she doesn't know is that there are more than just the regular dangers of the Alaskan forests stalking her . . .

As Dodge sets out to find Echo, he can't ignore the feelings he still has for her. But will he be able to find her in time? And if he does, is there still room for him in her heart?

My Thoughts

A new series by Susan May Warren always excites me. I know I'm in for a riveting tale with engaging characters. Sunrise  is the first installment of the Sky King Ranch series. It's set in Alaska so we know there's going to be plenty of adventure. 

The main characters are the Kingston family. A widowed father, a set of triplets, Dodge, Ranger, Colt, and a sister Larke.  The death of their beloved mother was hard on everyone but especially Dodge. Through the years he's become estranged from his family and has no plans to rectify that.

Of course God is very good at allowing circumstances to change our paths and that's what happens with Dodge. His father is in an accident and so Dodge finds himself coming home out of obligation to help his father. He has no intention of staying any longer than he has to and he has pre-planned to avoid everyone.

Poor Dodge! Small town life just doesn't work that way. People tend to get in your business whether you want them to or not. And that includes an old flame.

This book has a bit of everything. Adventure, mystery, suspense and of course a complicated romance. The story is primarily focused on Dodge but there's also a secondary story that I imagine will continue through the series. After finishing the first book I'm itching to dive into the second.
