I'm reading...natalie anderson
Natalie Anderson is a perennial reader favourite who writes for RIVA and Harlequin Presents Extra, like me! She’s also written a novella called MELT.
For a girl who always writes long and has to cut back a ridiculous amount – me! - to see a story with half the amount of words I usually write, written so tight, so rich, so full of context and romance, and heat was amazing. I love love loved this story.
The setting, a base in Antarctica, was a third hero for me. The detail Nat invoked was phenomenal. What an astonishing place. I found myself jealous that Hunter and Emma were some of the lucky few who get to experience it!
Now Hunter. There's a hero. Gorgeous, hotter than hot, and fun. Emma, shyer, softer, with nicely unexpected sass, was a great foil. Together they pack some fabulous sexual tension.
This was one of those stories that made me snatch every minute I could to drink it up. I made the mistake of reading it while dying my hair. I had a five minute window. I took fifteen! Happy ending, my hair did not fall out, though it might be a tad more vibrant than usual this month ;).
MELT is a flirty, sassy, fun, warm read. And don't even get me started on the cover. LOVE!
