He's built a quiet life for himself in Alaska. But it doesn't stand a chance against the unrelenting pull of a man who's everything he shouldn't want.
Ex-military mountain man Griffin Barrett likes his solitude. It keeps him from falling back into old habits. Bad habits. He's fought too hard for his sobriety to lose control now. However, his gig as a wildlife guide presents a new kind of temptation in superhot supermodel River Vale. Nothing the Alaskan wilderness has to offer has ever called to Griffin so badly. And that can only lead to trouble…
River has his own methods for coping. Chasing adventure means always moving forward. Nobody's ever made him want to stand still—until Griffin. The rugged bush pilot is the very best kind of distraction, but the emotions he stirs up in River feel anything but casual, and he's in no position to stay put.
With temptation lurking in close quarters, keeping even a shred of distance is a challenge neither's willing to meet. And the closer Griffin gets to River, the easier it is to ignore every last reason he should run.
Publisher's Note: Arctic Sun deals with topics some readers may find difficult, including sobriety and eating disorders.

ARCTIC SUN is the first book in the Frozen Hearts series, and we jump straight in with a model and a mountain man. Or at least, that's how the first appearances seem to be.
Both River and Griffin have more to them than it appears. Griffin is a recovering alcoholic, whilst River has to deal with food issues. Both of these subjects are serious and dealt with in a sympathetic manner, yet not glossing over the repercussions either. Ms. Albert makes it quite clear to the reader just how much these affect our MC's lives, even if prevention is better than cure!
This is a long book, with plenty to get your teeth into. There were no editing or grammatical errors that I noticed. The descriptions of Alaska are simply breathtaking, and if it wasn't on my bucket list to begin with, it definitely would be now.
A great introduction to a new series, and absolutely one to follow. Highly recommended by me.
