Melody is a high-powered, driven attorney on the verge of either a nervous breakdown or a heart attack.  She has managed to fire thirty-eight assistants in the span of six months, rivaling Murphy Brown’s record.  She is continually trying to live up to her father’s expectations, and disappointment that she was a girl, even after his death.  When her partner talks her into taking a two week survival course in Alaska to straighten out her head, she decides one night to throw caution to the wind and does it.

Hunter McFadden is a Scotsman by birth and a retired Chicago Cop by trade.  Now he runs an Alaskan Wilderness Survival Course.  He feels duped that the Mel he accepted is actually Melody.  But, since no one will pick her up for two weeks, he is highly attracted to her, and she looks like hell, he decides that he will take her through the course.

Will they both let their guards down long enough for the heat they feel between them to take hold and maybe even leak into their hearts?  Will Mel learn that there is more to life than the law?

Braving the Storm was a heartfelt story about finding what you really want out of life, and what you may have to do to get it.  I thought it was interesting that both characters seem to fight what they felt, though they were both single.  But the way this played into the overall story is what helped to make this book really work.  I found Braving the Storm a wonderful hot and spicy romance set in the cool setting of Alaska.
