Overview

Spring has come to White Bear Landing—and so has the law, in the firm hands of Royal Mounted policeman and pilot Bob Dixon. Dixon’s as gruff, tough and good-looking as Russell Crowe, and in this outpost halfway between the arctic mines and civilization, he’s known for taking the law to extremes.

More than once Dixon has meted out his own brand of rough justice with hard fists and hot lead, but now the tables have turned. The past has come back to haunt him, he’s been set up as a...

Overview

Spring has come to White Bear Landing—and so has the law, in the firm hands of Royal Mounted policeman and pilot Bob Dixon. Dixon’s as gruff, tough and good-looking as Russell Crowe, and in this outpost halfway between the arctic mines and civilization, he’s known for taking the law to extremes.

More than once Dixon has meted out his own brand of rough justice with hard fists and hot lead, but now the tables have turned. The past has come back to haunt him, he’s been set up as a murder suspect, and a rogue’s gallery of enemies are lining up to settle old scores . . .

Out on the icy tundra, on the edge of the world, revenge can be cold—and brutal. Dixon’s only hope is to let the trust of a good friend and the love of a good woman lead the way to true justice and redemption—on Arctic Wings.

Hubbard never wrote a word, conceived a character, or described a setting without first finding out all he could about the people and places that drove his stories. He wrote: “I began to search for research on the theory that if I could get a glimmering of anything lying beyond a certain horizon, I could go deep enough to find an excellent story. I read exhaustively. I wanted information and nothing else.” His exhaustive research—and search for the excellent

    Bob Dixon, a strictly by the book Royal Mounted Police Officer stationed at White Bear Landing, is known far wide as being a stickler for the following the letter of the law. Often dispensing his own brand of justice to those who have broken the law. As an officer of the law he has accumulated a long list of enemies, one of which who has framed him as a thief and murderer. Dixon sets out to prove his innocence without much succession. When Dixon reaches the end of his rope and despair over takes him Nancy saves his sanity and his heart.

    Set in the late 1930's/early 1940's Arctic Winds reflect the time. Dixon too is a product of his life a father who berated him constantly telling him he would amount to nothing. Dixon grew determined to prove him wrong. He is strong, intelligent and has a code of honor he lives by. Unfortunately the same rigid ideals are what has kept his heart isolated. Nancy has overcome the stigma of a criminal father to become the strong determined woman that she is.

    Follow as these two cross paths learning to and teaching one another that the our past is not so important as what we do in our present and future.
