Anidyr Bycall is frozen in her past, regretting words never spoken to the woman she loves and the one impulsive act that cost her all her dreams. Running from the courts of public and academic opinion in Fairbanks, she has landed in Key West. The nights are hot but she is colder than the glaciers she once explored.
Tending bar by night, she spends her days immersed in the research of her only remaining passion in life: the ice fields of Alaska. But trends may be improving when news from home hints that those she harmed may have moved on, and she can at least recover the papers and books she left behind. The respect and affection she once saw in Eve Cambraís eyes is gone beyond recall.
When a few innocent questions raise Aniís doubts about what really happened three years ago, she realizes she may have a chance to clear her name and reclaim her career. But thereís no data to suggest that Eve has thawed and that the fire they once shared can be rekindled.
In this romantic story of the icy north, Karin Kallmaker explores the passion that can melt even a frozen heart.
