It’s a total romance escape into Alaska, and trust me, I loved experiencing this whole new world (and way of living) through the eyes of a city girl. And I especially loved being annoyed by the brooding Alaskan pilot that scowls and dismisses her… (ROAR!!)
And YAY US!!! She’s releasing a sequel in just a few days!!! P.S. Here’s my Book Review.
Joanna: I just finished A Simple Wild. Amazing! It’s been a long time since I’ve been moved to tears by a book. Thank you for this recommendation — the best part, the sequel is out next week. 🎉
Maryse: That makes me so happy to know!!!! She’s one of my all-time FAVORITE authors. I can’t wait for the sequel too!
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.
R. Renee: Simple Wild is hands down my fave by her so far! Read it ASAP!! In case I’m not the last person to know (or in case it was posted and I missed it)… K.A. Tucker dropped a pretty big hint on her IG about writing the continuation of The Simple Wild!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More hot yeti goodness coming up!
About book #1:
Calla Fletcher was two when her mother took her and fled the Alaskan wild, unable to handle the isolation of the extreme, rural lifestyle, leaving behind Calla’s father, Wren Fletcher, in the process. Calla never looked back, and at twenty-six, a busy life in Toronto is all she knows. But when her father reaches out to inform her that his days are numbered, Calla knows that it’s time to make the long trip back to the remote frontier town where she was born.
She braves the roaming wildlife, the odd daylight hours, the exorbitant prices, and even the occasional—dear God—outhouse, all for the chance to connect with her father: a man who, despite his many faults, she can’t help but care for. While she struggles to adjust to this new subarctic environment, Jonah—the quiet, brooding, and proud Alaskan pilot who keeps her father’s charter plane company operational—can’t imagine calling anywhere else home. And he’s clearly waiting with one hand on the throttle to fly this city girl back to where she belongs, convinced that she’s too pampered to handle the wild.
Jonah is probably right, but Calla is determined to prove him wrong. As time passes, she unexpectedly finds herself forming a bond with the burly pilot. As his undercurrent of disapproval dwindles, it’s replaced by friendship—or perhaps something deeper? But Calla is not in Alaska to stay and Jonah will never leave. It would be foolish of her to kindle a romance, to take the same path her parents tried—and failed at—years ago.
It’s a simple truth that turns out to be not so simple after all.
