When their plane crashed, their desire took flight.
CEO Maine Braxton and his invaluable assistant, Colby, don’t realize they share a deep secret: they’re in love—with each other. That secret may have never come to light but for a terrifying plane crash in the Cascade Mountains that changes everything.
In a struggle for survival, the two men brave bears, storms, and a life-threatening flood to make it out of the wilderness alive. The proximity to death makes them realize the importance of love over propriety. Confessions emerge. Passions ignite. They escape the wilds renewed and openly in love.
When they return to civilization, though, forces are already plotting to snuff out their short-lived romance and ruin everything both have worked so hard to achieve.
Stranded with Desire is hard to rate for me. This story accomplishes exactly what it sets out to be. It is a sweet, easy to read, tropy, formula romance. Which is exactly what the Dreamspun Desires line is supposed to be. If that is not what you are looking for, I wouldn’t suggest you try this one, even if you usually like either of the authors.
If you, like me, need something that is sweet with little angst and characters whose love for one another is plain to see to the point of being almost over the top, Stranded with Desire might be a good choice for you. This story isn’t deep. There aren’t any real surprises. Heck, it harkens back to many a romance I have read before.
Most importantly, it is an enjoyable couple of hours.
Johnny Mack is a new narrator for me. I can’t say that this story was enough for me to truly have an opinion of him. I guess my lack of opinion, however, is an opinion in itself. He isn’t objectionable as a narrator. He didn’t hit any of my pet peeves. He made the few hours I spent with Maine and Colby enjoyable.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
