REVIEW: Northern Exposure by Jayne Rylon & Mari Carr


All roads lead home when that’s where you’ve left your heart.

Silas Compton always had his eye on Lucy, the veterinarian’s daughter. He was even content to wait for the girl of his dreams to grow up before getting anywhere near her with his family’s double-edged legacy.

Waiting around led to fooling around with his best friend—and an impulsive eruption of desire that Lucy’s innocent eyes weren’t meant to see. Figuring Compton Pass wasn’t big enough for either the three of them or the pain he’d caused, Silas let loose his tightly reined wanderlust and headed for Alaska.

Ten years later, when an oil rig accident sends him home, he braces himself for the reopening of old wounds. Instead he finds himself in the care—and welcoming arms—of Lucy and Colby, whose marriage has plenty of room for the man they both still love. And forgive with all their hearts.

As things start to unravel at Compass Ranch, Silas must dig deep for the strength to assume his rightful place in the Compton family…and lay the foundation for a future with his lovers. If he can forgive himself.

Menage stories are among my guilty pleasures, so naturally this one interested me from the start, especially when you count the fact that I already liked the author. The premise seemed realistic which sets the stage for great personal growth among all the main characters. Some grow faster than others, but all get to a good place. They have a lovable cast of supportive family and friends to help tham along the way as well. The ranch setting makes for a nice peaceful atmosphere. Everything just came together beautifully.

Bottom Line:

Northern Exposure is a sweet story of growth, acceptance, and fierce love that runs deep and lasts. The heat only adds to the enjoyment!
