Kimberly Van Meter

ISBN: 9780373718870

In Alaska on the anniversary of her sister’s death coupled with failing to obtain the promotion to management, game warden Miranda Sinclair gets drunk with plans to have a one night stand. At the Rusty Anchor she selects a stranger she assumes is an Anchorage tourist.

Jeremiah Burke and Miranda enjoy the greatest evening of their respective lives. However, she turns mortified when she learns her one-night lover is her new boss. As they work a bear poaching case, Jeremiah shares in common with his subordinate besides the attraction, Miranda’s overwhelming guilt re her late sister; as his son died in an ATV accident.

That Reckless Night is a superb contemporary as two emotionally guilt-laden wounded warriors finally begin to heal due to the elixir of love. With suspense from the poacher subplot in the Alaskan wilderness as a powerful backdrop and deep secondary characters like Russ the bartender adding depth, readers will appreciate the fabulous first Sinclairs of Alaska romance.
