Twenty-six Eskimo Words
SHE LOATHES HIM
HE WANTS HER
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HATE TURNS TO RESPECT
AND DESIRE TURNS TO LOVE
When newlyweds Anne and Jack O’Malley are asked to complete an archeological survey begun by a man who has disappeared, their goal is simple. They hope to unearth a find of international importance that will keep the US government from opening the North Slope of Alaska for oil exploration and drilling. What they don’t count on is the two oil company liaisons, Hal and Serbin, who are tasked with ensuring that such a find never happens. When it does, Anne and Jack find themselves fighting for their lives.
From the summer beauty of the North Slope to the harsh snows of Quebec’s frozen tundra, from Prudhoe Bay to the Inuit village in Canada where Jack was raised, Jack and Anne are the prey of two killers. Each must fight to stay alive while working to save the other.
Hal paused. “A kiss is too personal, isn’t it? I won’t force that on you . . . Ah, Anne, how I wish things were different.” Again, he hesitated. Then his expression changed. “Well, things aren’t different. They’re what they are.
Steeped in reality, TWENTY-SIX ESKIMO WORDS is a compelling adventure that tests the bonds of love and the nature of forgiveness while providing insight into the will to survive as well as the many shades of gray in which we live our lives.
This second book in the Anne O’Malley series is one you won’t want to miss!
Anne O'Malley Arctic Adventures
Quest for the Ivory Caribou
Robby was the love of her life. Twenty-two years older, he was her mentor, her protector, and the source of a family mystery she had been helping him solve. Then he died. And with him went her lust for life. Now Anne wants to solve that mystery as one last gift for Robby before she joins him. But life is full of surprises. In Ottawa, French Canadian researcher René does more than help Anne with her work – he awakens feelings she thought gone. When the clues they find lead Anne north to the land of the Inuit, she finds not just the answer she seeks but the embrace of a family, the will to move forward, and unexpected love.
A Woman in Mourning
An Unsolved Family Mystery
An Unexpected Adventure, and …
The Promise of Love
Join Anne as she travels from San Diego to far northern Ungavaq, and then into the past – to World War I Germany – as she realizes she must face the same decision her husband’s father did: to live life to the fullest or give up.
A story of courage and rebirth, of love lost and found, and of the power of family, Quest for the Ivory Caribou reminds readers that it is in the confluence of past and present that we often find the most meaning in our lives.
