    1. okay, i have appended a list of questions/musings to the end of this because i have been thinking WAY too much about this. someone else please read this pw review and tell me if i am hallucinating, or drunk, or otherwise misunderstanding this plot:In the first of her Northern Fire series, Monroe (the Children of the Moon series) introduces Cailkirn, Alaska, the small town Kitty Grant’s ancestors founded nearly 200 years ago. Eight years after Kitty escaped Cailkirn, she returns to rebuild her [...]

    2. Review updated and completedWild Heat is the first book in Lucy Monroe's very sexy Northern Fire series, set in the small Alaskan peninsula town of Cailkirn, where most of the 2,000-ish residents are Scottish, Inuit, or both. This story has the many of the elements that often go hand in hand with friends-to-lovers and second-chance romances; misunderstandings, hurt feelings, people growing apart, the struggle to forgivebut that's just a small part of the story. The author also tackled the sensit [...]

    3. I’m a sucker for a good second chance romance and Wild Heat didn’t disappoint this reviewer. There’s something about young love and the chance to rekindle that love, but from an adult perspective, that just gives me the feels every time!Caitlyn “Kitty” Grant has returned home to Cailkirn, Alaska after heading off to college at eighteen and never returning. Trying to recover from the end of her marriage and her abusive ex-husband, Kitty quickly crosses paths with her former best friend, [...]

    4. I received this book free through First Reads.This is the book to curl up with at night, in front of a fire, with a glass of wine. Loved this book. The writing/story will capture you from page one. I did not want to put the book down, even at 3am. Cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

    5. **JOSIE'S 4.5 STAR REVIEW**Wild Heat is book 1 in the Northern Fire series. I have not read a book from this author before and I am glad I took a chance on her. This novel is about second chance love but also about surviving and moving forward. The author touches on important issues such as domestic abuse, anorexia and low self-esteem. The characters and story line are very well developed and once I started reading I fell in love with the characters and the small Alaskan town. Normally I it does [...]

    6. Kitty's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews3.5 starsI started off really enjoying Wild Heat and, as the story progressed, I started feeling a little bit let down. The beginning of the book was strong, interesting and really caught my attention. But, as the story progressed, I felt like we were rehashing old things and felt like the storyline was being dragged out.I was also a little bit thrown off at times with the way “Kitty” (aka “call me Caitlan”) went from insecure to stro [...]

    7. A nice romance - fun to have the might have been become what is. Location and back characters are charming with an added bit of adventuresome. I am not sure if the harder issues discussed as part of the story line add to the reading experience. I would, however, agree with having them as part of the book for the general purpose of educating the public.

    8. Wild Heat has sexy, interesting characters and a captivating storyline. The author’s writing style and story kept me interested enough to read it in two evenings. I’m looking forward to reading more by Lucy Monroe. This book was received for free through First Reads.

    9. Posted on What I'm ReadingI have decided to take up the Blogger Shame Challenge again. This time I set my bar a little low, this way I can accomplish it, and if I read more than my four it will be bonus. First up is Wild Heat by Lucy Monroe. Now I feel really shameful for waiting so long on reading this title, because it was pretty good. Even though it dealt with some heavy subjects in the story, it was still a pretty good read.Okay, Wild Heat was probably not the best choice to read right after [...]

    10. 3.5 stars.Wild Heat is the first novel in Lucy Monroe's Northern Fire series. Set in Cailkirn, Alaska, this super hot read is an enjoyable friends to lovers romance that also deals with some hard hitting issues.Caitlin "Kitty" Grant and Tack MacKinnon are childhood friends who lost contact eight years earlier after Kitty's marriage.

    11. 3.5 to 4 stars!Wild Heat is the first book in the Northern Fire series by Lucy Monroe. This is a new to me author, so I must admit that it was the gorgeous cover that immediately got my attention! I'm also a huge fan of second chance romances, so with that combination, I was sold. With the hot cover and the blurb, I thought I was in for a sweet, sexy romance with a little bit of angst thrown in, but ended up getting so much more than that.I really wasn't expecting the depth that Wild Heat contai [...]

    12. Wild Heat is the first book in Lucy Monroe's new series Northern Fire. This first book follows Kitty Grant returning to her hometown of Cailkirn, Alaska after her years away had caused her nothing but pain. As a college student Kitty had moved away to go to college with her best friend Tack, but after meeting the wrong man, things go down hill pretty fast. Tack MacKinnon had followed her out of Alaska, a man secretly in love with his best friend, but returned home after Kitty betrayed their clos [...]

    13. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I haven't really read that many books set in Alaska. Maybe it's because the place invokes coldness and isolation, not really a good combination for a romance novel. It doesn't make you think of sexy men and women with perfect bodies and fashionable clothes. Instead, we always get characters who are buried in winter clothes to survive the harsh temperature.However, these romance novels set in Alaska c [...]

    14. Does Monroe ever know how to bring it! This novel definitely packs some wild heat! It’s also extremely emotional and unwaveringly lifelike. Monroe brings Alaska to life in a picturesque manner, that makes you feel as if you’ve really been there, even if only as a tourist. I love the look that Monroe takes at anorexia and abusive relationships. Yes it’s hard hitting and hard to stomach thinking about, but seeing the heroine rise from the ashes and struggle to return to who she was left me w [...]

    15. I was really enjoying Wild Heat until I got to about 40% which is when things really started to go down hill for me but I kept going At 62% I decided I had to throw in the towel. Will I pick it back up again at a later date? Maybe, but it's not likely.(view spoiler)[I'm just at a loss for words right now and don't even know how to express my concern with this one. Kitty and Tack used to be best friends, then she got married and her abusive husband made her sever all times with him. She returns h [...]

    16. Wild Heat is set in Alaska. My first thought was eww. Boy was I wrong. Lucy Monroe takes us through this land in such detail, making me picture it's beauty, that I wanted to move there!Kitty and Tack were best friends since she moved there when she was 6 years old. Kitty always vowed that she would get away from Alaska but Tack knew it was home and planned to stay there forever. They went to college in California where Kitty met and married a very wealthy man. That was a big mistake. She divorce [...]

    17. This is a really sweetly written book, with a sense of hope in it that left me longing for someone to love me the way that Tak loves Kitty. In reading this, I also went to Lucy's Pinterest page and got a little visual information on what she was "seeing" while she was writing. The stories that Ms. Monroe writes, and I find it very true with this book, are hope filled for a once-in-a-lifetime love, which is what I look for when reading romance. I like the way that the story incorporates Tak and K [...]

    18. Kitty spent the last 10 years away from Alaska and most of all Tack, but now she is home, to heal and find herself again. Kitty had pushed away everyone she loved and those who love her in order to find acceptance with a crowd that was vain, empty and abusive. I am glad she finally walked away from that horribly abusive situation, even though she was pretty skittish for a while there.Tack, wow what a hunk. So understanding and so loving. Man, Kitty was a fool to toss him away all those years ago [...]

    19. 3.5 stars. Well written and steamy romance set in Alaska. I liked it, but I didn't love it, as as I think it just had too much inner dialogue for me and my mind kept wandering. However this is a favourite author of mine, thanks to her Mills and Boon books and I will be reading many more in the future. I want to read more of this particular series when the books are released.

    20. Wild Heat is a charming little story of second chances, one that is loaded with heat and heart! The story line was engaging, the characters were well drawn, overall it was a very well-rounded enjoyable read!! If you like small town romances then I think you will enjoy this one, it's sure to spice up your day!!

    22. Wild Heat is the first book that I've read by Author Lucy Monroe. This is the first book in her new Northern Fire Series. I was drawn to this book by the small-town setting and the second-chance romance because I just LOVE these things when I'm reading romance stories. In the opening scenes, we meet Caitlin who is moving back home to Alaska after leaving an abusive marriage. She is basically coming back almost reluctantly, almost with her tail-between-her-legs, after having been gone for about e [...]

    25. This is the first book I’ve ever reviewed so I’m going to try and tell you exactly what I like to read in a review when looking for my next selection. First, let me tell you that you can never really go wrong with a Lucy Monroe book. I’ve read a lot of bad books in my 20 years of reading this genre so I recognize bad writing when I see it. Ms. Monroe is on my auto-buy list. Does that make this review a bit biased going in? Maybe. But I’m a dedicated reader of all types of romance novels [...]
