A weekly event hosted by Sheila - Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

I read four books for the read-a-thon, not sure what hour I read them, because I did so many other things around the house. They were quick paced books and definately made my weekend. Congrats to all the readers that made their targets allotment of books and even those who just jumped in for fun like myself – hope you had a great time..

MEN OF ALASKA: HEART OF THE STORM: Eight years ago, Charlene Henderson had tragically lost her brother, a crab fisherman, to the depths of the Bering Sea. She’d left her home, her family, and the only man she’d ever truly loved and run to California to forget. Forget the pain, forget her love, and leave Alaska and fishermen completely behind her.

Unfortunately Alaska isn’t as ready to leave Charlene alone. Some new information on her brother’s death has surfaced, and Charlene must return to Dutch Harbor and discover the truth about what had really happened to her brother.

Ethan Shannon has never forgotten Charlie Henderson, but eight years changes a person, and she’s not Charlie anymore – she’s Charlene, a stuck-up city girl with no love for the sea. Despite his distaste for her new lifestyle, he can’t help the feelings he still has for her, and his desire to find out what happened to her brother – his best friend.

Peace for Charlene can only come by discovering the truth. But will she be able to face the evidence she finds, both about her brother and her relationship with Ethan? Or will the answers lead her back into the heart of the storm?

MEN OF ALASKA: EDGE OF THE STORM: On the run for crimes he didn't commit, Coast Guard Petty Officer Matthew Sands comes home to Dutch Harbor to find the truth. Signing on to a crab fishing boat was supposed to hide him out until he could clear his name; instead he finds even more trouble, in the form of one Kelly Shannon.

Kelly is looking for her own answers. She's on the hunt for a killer who robbed her of the first, and only, man she's ever loved. What she finds on The Athena is more questions than answers - and Matthew Sands.

With the passion between them as wild as the terrain, can Kelly and Matt work together to uncover a ruthless killer? Or will the murderer find them first?

On the edge of the storm, survival is far from guaranteed

MEN OF ALASKA: EYE OF THE STORM: “Shut up and fish.” That’s essentially what the authorities tell Kevin Henderson. After nine years, he’s still no closer to finding the person who killed his best friend, his colleague and his future. Worst of all, a woman from his undercover past has charged into his life and turned it upside down. He couldn’t resist her then—and he’s not going to take any chances now.

Magda Karlson isn’t taking “no” for an answer. When the man in charge of investigating the smuggling ring runs into a blank wall, he calls the ex-CIA private investigator, mainly because Kevin knows her—very well. But Magda has her own agenda. Convinced Kevin has information about her brother’s death, Magda gets herself hired on his boat as a cook.

With killers trying to wipe them out and the sparks between them turning into a full-fledged fire, Kevin and Magda will be lucky if they make it through the eye of the storm.

The Iron Duke was so much a good read - you must read the short in the anthology first though... I had to back up and get that one...
