Review of 'Winter's Heat' by Cristin Harber


After putting her life on the line to protect classified intelligence, military psychologist Mia Kensington is on a cross-country road trip from hell with an intrusive save-the-day hero. Uninterested in his white knight act, she’d rather take her chances without the ruggedly handsome, cold-blooded operative who boasts an alpha complex and too many guns.


Colby Winters, an elite member of The Titan Group, has a single objective on his black ops mission: recover a document important to national security. It was supposed to be an easy in-and-out operation. But now, by any means necessary becomes a survival mantra when he faces off with a stunning woman he can’t leave behind.


When Titan’s safe houses are compromised, Colby stashes Mia at his home, exposing his secret—he’s the adoptive father of an orphaned baby girl. Too soon, danger arrives and Mia lands in the hands of a sadistic cartel king with a taste for torture. As hours bleed into fear-drenched days, Colby races across the globe and through a firestorm of bullets to save the woman he can’t live without.

If they make it out alive, can he reconcile duty and desire?

Does Mia trust her heart to a man who willingly walks into kill-zones?

**My thoughts**

If you're a fan of scorching hot books with a knight in shining armor saving a damsel in distress, then this is the book for you! Colby is on a mission when he accidentally ends up saving Mia. Mia is a psychologist who has unwittingly ended up in the middle of a terrifying hunt for a package left behind from one of her former patients, who has ended up dead. 

From the very first encounter, the two of them have a smouldering attraction to each other. Colby remains steadfast in his affections, but Mia keeps going off and on. We know that he is serious about pursuing something with her, but Mia's inconsistency makes her harder to read. Colby has a ready-made family; Mia is not used to having a loving family. She never thought she wanted one, but now is changing her mind. This blooming relationship takes place in the middle of so much action and danger as they end up mixed up with the Colombian cartel that you can't help but to cheer them on as the thrills of the rescues engulf you.

Their relationship is a little difficult to believe, because of the instant attraction and the intensity of the attraction. However, it does seem to fit in with what you would expect in a made-for-Hollywood movie. This is a fictional story, and many women would want to be swept off of their feet by a strong man such as Colby! It isn't going to be for everyone, but many will enjoy this story.

This does appear to be the first book in a series, with the promise of even more action and fire with more hottie special ops men to come.
