Nancy: I have been reading books that take place in Alaska. My new thing!
Maryse: I’m loving the Alaska romance books too!!!!!
Tasmine: I was born and raised in Alaska. It’s the perfect place for romance. It’s so beautiful but you have to be tough. Everyday is an adventure 😍
Maryse: I LOVE knowing this!!! Thank you so much for your real-life insight, Tasmine!!! Makes these books feel even more real.
Nancy: Love this ❤️❤️❤️
Any favorites you recommend? I’m making a “Love in Alaska” romance list.
Maryse: My favorites (so far):
Jean: The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker and really loved it. For those of you who like the slow burn, and that initial dislike of each other slowly growing into something more, you will love this. And I loved all the aspects of Alaska and the types of people who live there and their way of life!
Tammy: I loved The Simple Wild!
MichelleS: If you like Alaska as a setting, and contemporary romance, you might want to try The Simple Wild, by KA Tucker. I totally felt like I was there. So authentic. And not in a wilderness way, but if you lived there kind of way.
Danielle: I’m from Alaska. Born and bred and currently reside, from a small village. I’m about 25% in and am impressed with how accurate the author’s descriptions are of Alaska. (I don’t know how many other authors would know that WiFi isn’t always available but GCI is)
Hvitserk: I’m getting too fussy with the books I read lately. It’s possible my view of this book was influenced by my high opinion of The Simple Wild. Ughhh I think Calla and Jonah ruined me. 😣😂 Do you know any books close to this genre? Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
R. Renee: Simple Wild is hands down my fave by her so far! Read it ASAP!! Simple Wild will make my top ten of the year for sure.
Kathy: The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker. I stayed up late to finish it. Definitely one of my best reads of the year! Visiting Alaska is now at the top of my bucket list!!
Ash: I really enjoyed The Simple Wild – offbeat and even though I hate the cold, Alaska worked for me!
Michele G: I’ve arrived in Alaska – – I think it’s gonna be a good one ladies! Come join! I can already see why everyone has raved over it!
Maryse: P.S. Book #2 (Wild at Heart: A Novel (The Simple Wild Book 2) will be going live in just a couple of weeks!!! 😀
- Single in Sitka (An Odds-Are-Good Standalone Romance Book 1) (here’s my 4-star book review)
- The Great Alone: A Novel (here’s my 5-star book review)
Anne: I loved this book even if it was slow for me to pick up at first. I was always on the edge waiting for the dad to flip! 😅
Maryse: ME TOOOOO!!!! He freaked me out!!!
Lucy: The Great Alone by Kristen Hannah. I loved the Nightingale so I jumped on this one, I was not disappointed. A family homesteading in Alaska, the family relationships, young love and tragedy. It will stay with me for a long time.
Debbie: I loved The Great Alone! Just finished it!
Nancy: Under the Northern Lights by S.C. Stephens! AND on sale now. You must but UNDER THE NORTHERN LIGHTS on your “recluse” books. It takes place in the nowhere Alaska in a cabin.
Karen: I read that last year. Awesome read!
Gail: Loved this one too! 👍
Julie: Just finished it. Loved it.
Leslie M: …It was stressful because of the survival element in rural Alaska but Alaska fascinates me, so I enjoyed that aspect of it. …I think all of you will love it! No worries if you didn’t like Thoughtless as characters and storyline are NOTHING like it. It’s slow burn, major UST, super swoony, single POV by h and reminds me of The Simple Wild and K.A. Tucker’s writing style.
Denise: Under the Northern Lights by S. C Stephens… One of my favorite books.
Jean: Oooo, you guys…..I loved Under the Northern Lights by S.C. Stephens!!
Kathy: I really enjoyed this book!
Sara: You need to add this to your Alaska list🤔
Aim: one of my favorite books ….of all time!
Nancy: I have been reading books that take place in Alaska. My new thing! So when I found: Take Me Home (Last Frontier Lodge Novels Book 1) by J.H. Croix & All books in the series are standalone with HEA.
Kari: Ohhh. You need to meet Max from A Reason To Kill (Reason Series Book 2) by CP Smith. Not only is Max in Alaska, but he is a lumberjack. And his mom is HILARIOUS!
Pam: The Bailey’s Series by Piper Rayne. There is a whole family of siblings.❤
Amber: Northern Lights by Nora Roberts
Anne: Badd Brothers series by Jasinda Wilder!
Maryse: I didn’t realize Alaska was the location!!!
Anne: I remember it very well because I had to research places in Alaska so I’d be able to relate to the story.
Amber: Two Cabins, One Lake: An Alaskan Romance by Shaye Marlow. There are 4 books in the series, and I think they are all in kindle unlimited.
Tessa: Two Cabins, One Lake by Shaye Marlow
I’m giggling a lot. …lol Her thinking sounds like something I’d read on here. I love it.
- A Fairbanks Affair (An Odds-Are-Good Standalone Romance Book 3) – Katy Regnery
- Saving Sara (Alaska Blizzard Book 5) – Kat Mizera
Betty: The Alaskan dating game by S. Doyle it’s a great series all based in Alaska and I loved it 😍
Pia: A Lie for a Lie (All In Book 1) by Helena Hunting 😊
Amber: Must Love Otters (Revelation Cove Book 1) by Eliza Gordon (Revelation Cove series)
Kristina: I just finished Must Love Otters. You guys, it was hilarious! A funny, sweet, light read. I needed a break from all the angst, lol!
Jen C: Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon. Again, another romantic comedy right when I needed it. Super cute read.
Janna: The Rockton series by Kelley Armstrong is based in Alaska. It is classified as a mystery but there is a great relationship through all the books (same couple).
Cristin: Aurora Rose Shooting Star Series
Amy: I actually one-clicked Fighting to Breathe earlier when it popped up on my recommendations in the Kindle store…how good does that one sound?
Kayla: Aurora Rose Reynolds has a series in Alaska!
Andrea: The Alaskan Nights series by Addison Fox. Three books and a novella with women traveling to Alaska and falling for an Alaskan man. All set in winter.
Tracey: Cherise Sinclair’s Sons of the Survivalist series
Jan: I’m not a massive bdsm fan …I read the Sons of the Survivalist books (Cherise Sinclair) and they weren’t bad. Two so far and I’m guessing more to come for the other brothers. I will read them too as they come out, I’m sure.
Ashley: Alaska Wild by Helena Newbury.
Michelle: …My other totally new author to me, PNR gem last year was Alaskan Fire (Guardians of the First Realm Book 1) by Sara King. Those both were favorites of mine.
Jean: I am reading Sex in the Sticks: A Love Hurts Novel! Please don’t let the cover fool you because I am absolutely loving this book! She is a rich NY girl who blogs about sex and relationships, but she’s sick of the NY metrosexual guys she always dates. So, she travels to Alaska to find out what those men are like…..so good!! She is out of her element, small town drama, and a hottie to boot!!
Linda: Just read Sex in the Sticks by Sawyer Bennett on someone’s recommendation. Really turned off by title and cover but so very happy I took a chance. Loved it!!! One very hot alpha in this one!!
Maryse: OH!!!!! I also loved Dance With the Devil: A Dark-Hunter Novel (Dark-Hunter Novels Book 3) by Sherrilyn Kenyon!!! That was the other reclusive, angry “Z” (Zarek) that I fell in love with back in my early paranormal days. OHHHH YESSS this one is ALL Alaska, and fan-freaking-tastic!!!! Here’s my 4.5 star book review.
Amanda: Zarek from Dance with the Devil got me so bad. The carvings, how he became a dark-hunter (the Artie part) and the truth about his condition.
Rebecca: Omg Sherrilyn Kenyon is by far one of my favorite authors! I love this whole series especially Zareks book (I’m live in Fairbanks) and Vane’s book because it was the book that got me hooked. After I read his, I read the rest in order because that’s the way I do things and I just can’t enough!
Tessa: Zarek from Dance with the Devil. His story was so good and so sweet!
Tracy: Zarek’s book is a certified heart breaker to the max!
Tasha J: The Snow Child: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize in Letters: Fiction Finalists) by Eowyn Ivey. Not a romance, a fantasy beautifully told and all about love. The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson is apocalyptic with a budding romance- but definitely not the focus of the story. Just a hint in that one, but I loved it.
Maryse: YES!!! I’m adding it. 🙂 It doesn’t all have to be romance… but a nice love-story playing in the background works perfectly for me.
