Their love is the catalyst that could save the planet…or cost their lives.
As an environmental activist for Peace Warrior, Kier Mallory never hesitated to throw himself into dangerous situations. Until his hotheadedness costs the lives of two fellow crewmembers on an anti-whaling mission.
He finds no refuge in his hometown on Scotland’s north coast, where everyone knows what this son of a broken fisherman has done. Effectively homeless, Mal returns to one of his favorite places—Spindrift, a rustic colony of artist and crafter huts.
Spindrift is dilapidated and empty, save for a lone resident. Vivian Calder, a brilliant but emotionally detached scientist who appears to have done the impossible—mastered cold fusion. A clean, free, limitless source of power.
Despite Viv’s aversion to contact, a fragile bond forms between them, seemingly one atom at a time. Until Mal, determined to redeem himself by revealing Viv’s accomplishment to the world, brings down the wrath of an oil-dependent establishment, risking not only their love, but Viv’s life.
Warning: Contains a disgraced environmentalist and an autistic genius who go from strangers to lovers-for-life in thirteen days. Don’t believe in miracles? We’ll make you.
Keir is a environmental activist who makes a decision that costs the lives of two of his crewmembers.
Vivian is autistic so he does not like contact from other people but he is also a brilliant scientist who has mastered cold fusion.
Now I loved the authors pretense of this story and I really liked the way this author wrote this story and some of the characters in this book. But I have to be honest and say I was not a huge fan of Keir’s characters for a lot of this book. The way he treats Vivian through a lot of this book was just wrong and it did make it harder for me to like his character at first. But he did end up growing on me after awhile. Now Vivian’s character I loved and I thought the author did such a awesome job writing his character.
With this story you get a lot of action, some angst and some steam too.
This story line was very different than any book I have read before and I have to say I really did love what the author did with this story. I do not want to give away any spoilers because this book you really need to read for yourself it was just so good. So I will leave this review with…
All together I really liked this story and would recommend this book!
