Captain Jack Turner has not been the same since he returned from Afghanistan. Like so many other men, something happened that left him both physically and mentally changed. Now he is being sent to Arctic Bay for a five day assignment to consider a permanent training base there.
Jack’s guide is Sergeant Kinguyakkii (Kin) Carsen the leader of the Arctic Bay Patrol. The first meeting between the two was not what could be called friendly. Kin loves where he is in spite of the freezing cold, and Jack seems to find a way to insult the place that Kin calls home. They set out for a two night patrol which ends up keeping them confined to their tent when a blizzard moves in. While alone in the cold and dark both men find a desire for each other, even though neither has admitted to being gay.
Jack has been openly gay for quite a while, and Kin has kept it a secret from everyone. Kin knows that living in Arctic Bay requires him to keep his sexuality a deep dark secret, a secret that if revealed would make him a pariah among his family and friends. He has accepted the fact that he can never have love but this time with Jack is a memory he hopes will fill his lonely nights.
This is a book with explicit sex, a story about two men each with secrets and each looking for love and it is a story that seems to not be heading to a happily ever after, but then the ending is something you will have to find out for yourself.
