Melting His Alaskan Heart by Rebecca Thomas

When Ethan Forrester's hockey star brother begs him to take his place at a masquerade fundraiser due to illness, Ethan grudgingly agrees to help the cause. After all, he'll be wearing a mask that covers the scar across his eye. No one will know his true identity.

Sports journalist Carly Hughes will do whatever it takes to procure the interview no one else can get from the NHL Stanley cup winning captain. After a few drinks she confesses her need for an exclusive interview or she'll be fired. Ethan knows his brother as well as he knows himself--spilling a few details should keep the man's privacy intact--mostly.

However, when their interview moves to the penthouse suite, Ethan tries to explain he's not the Forrester brother she's looking for, but Carly insists he keep his mask on.

Daylight brings some harsh truths, and a serious hangover. Carly not only forgot to record her interview, but she wakes up with a stranger in her bed. Or was this case of mistaken identity the best thing that's ever happened to her?

If you like heartwarming romance that's guaranteed to make you smile, then take a trip to small-town Alaska and join the Forrester family!

This is the second book in the Alaskan Hero series and I love it. I did not read the first one, which means I now have to go back and do that. This is romance at its best, in a cold climate with tragedy in one of their pasts and love to help them overcome it. The Forrester family is always there for each other. When Dane, the captain of the NHL hockey team in Alaska is too sick to go to a fundraiser, he convinces his brother Ethan to go in his place. It is a masquerade, so the owners of the team will not know the difference. Ethan, who is scarred from an accident that killed his wife, agrees to go because no one will see his scars. Ethan meets up with a reporter by the name of Carly. She is trying to get an interview with Dane and Ethan agrees to give it to her. What he did not agree to was to have feelings for her. He tells her the truth after spending a wild drunken night together and tells her that he will help her get the interview. The rest of the story is Carly trying to get Ethan to understand that she loves him and wants him, not his brother Dane. The whole Forrester family helps her in anyway they can to get her man. They are tired of Ethan moping around and want him to realize that he is worthy of being loved again. The characters are so very believable and the story flows easily. This is a great series and I am looking forward to more from the Forrester clan! I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first book of Rebecca Thomas and I enjoyed her realistic style that paired a interesting story with complex characters. The story centers around Ethan, a young widower not looking for romance and Carly, a journalist who recently relocated to Alaska for an new job. Carly is forced to interview Ethan's little brother, Dane a Hockey star who is very reclusive. Ethan owes his brother a favor and attends a masquerade as Dane, and hooks up with Carly as a result. He reveals his secret and guarantees her the big interview. Carly is interested in Ethan, but he is very reluctant to take their relationship further. Read to find out who prevails. This is a great book with a fun plot, a brooding hero, and a plucky heroine. I liked the setting and the supporting characters. I plan on looking up the first book in the series! I was given a free copy for an honest review.

Love shines the way under the Northern Lights! As usual, my advice when considering books by this highly talented author is don’t bother reading my review, just read this heartwarming second book in the Alaskan Hero series! Even though this is a relatively short story, it is filled with so much action that it ‘feels’ much longer when you read it - that’s in a great way, nothing negative. The Alaskan setting is amazing and the author’s knowledge of living and working there shines through, somewhere brought to life in her amazing descriptions of settings, making the reader feel like they’re actually there. The characters are well developed, with plenty of background information enabling readers to easily relate to them. Sometimes physical trauma leaves even deeper emotional scars and that’s so true for the hero of this story. Ethan Forrester has never forgiven himself for not saving his wife when she was involved in a multiple car crash. He was scarred trying to do so, but the scar on his face is nothing compared to that on his emotional heart. It is only by being hidden behind a mask that he has the courage to start living again and, once the mask is removed, retreats again. This is a superb story of courage, resilience and melting away the ice and masks behind which Ethan hides. Carly is a brilliant, feisty and determined young lady and their interactions are totally engaging, the reader really wants to help get the two together romantically! A sports journalist, Carly is working hard to achieve an interview with Dane Forrester but, through it all, she maintains her integrity and honesty throughout. The series focus is on the Forrester family and, having read ‘Her Alaskan Hero’, it was great to catch up on other members of the family again. Having said that, I don’t think you need to have read the first book to enjoy this one - but they are both great so you’ll probably want to, anyway! I have no hesitation in highly recommending this (and its predecessor) to anyone who enjoys reading great romances in amazing settings with well developed characters and a fabulous family, too. Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Great read! When asked by his famous hockey playing brother to cover for him at a masquerade ball, Ethan Forrester figures he can do a quick in, shake a few hands, quick out. No big deal! What he didn't expect was to meet the first woman who has peaked his interest since the death of his wife five years ago. Bad part is, she's a reporter who desperately needs an interview with Dane Forrester, his brother who NEVER does interviews. Carly Hughes gave up everything to come to Alaska for a fresh start and a fantastic job. Well the job seemed fantastic until her boss delivers his "get this interview or you're out" speech. So what if no one has ever been able to get Dane Forrester to agree to an interview. She's not one to give up without a try! Ambushing him at the ball with the cold hard truth seems to be the best plan she can come up with. She's ecstatic when she gets him to agree. Now to find that spot in the hotel where they can talk without interruption. Seems like his hotel room may be the only place!! You definitely want to grab a copy of this to find out how the story unfolds from there. I highly recommend it.

Sometimes it takes a ton of perseverance to get what you want, and that is the theme behind Melting His Alaskan Heart by Rebecca Thomas. In order to keep her brand new job, sports journalist Carly Hughes needs to get an interview with hotshot professional hockey player Dane Forrester. Unfortunately, Dane does not give interviews, so Carly's task is next to impossible. Luckily, Dane is attending a masquerade charity ball, and that is where Carly intends to pounce. Dane's contract requires him to show himself at the ball, however, he has a stomach flu, so he begs his brother Ethan to take his place. Ethan's scarred face will be covered up by a mask, so he very unhappily agrees to help his brother out. As a result, Carly and Ethan meet, and there is an instant chemistry. So much so that they spend the night together. Once Ethan unveils the truth to Carly, he ensures her that he will arrange an interview for her. Ethan convinces himself that he has no desire to see Carly ever again, however, Carly believes otherwise. She makes a pest out of herself until she lands the interview and proves to Ethan that she is the one for him. This is a nice love story with an interesting plot and well-defined characters. Carly and Ethan are both lonely people, and I liked the way Ms. Thomas brought them out of their respective shells. Carly's constant tenacity got on my nerves, however, she did what she needed to do to win Ethan's love and get her story. Ms. Thomas does a nice job of describing the Alaskan wilderness, so much so that I may want to vacation there someday. This is the second book from the author's Alaskan Hero series and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. I read the first book, Her Alaskan Hero, and liked it very much.
