Island Peril (Aftershock #3.5) Synopsis
Red-hot writer Jill Sorenson brought readers to the edge of their seats in Aftershock. Now they can catch the beginning of Paul and Ella's relationship in this fast-moving novella packed with danger and delight!
It started as a girls' outing to California's beautiful Channel Islands State Park. When Ella Hammond embarks on a kayaking trip with sexy adventure guide Paul Dawson, sparks fly—but so does gunfire from a boat of drug smugglers.
Now Ella and Paul are on the run, soaked and stranded in a rocky hideout. Ella feels like she'll never be warm again. Until Paul shares his body heat—igniting a fire between them that's nearly too hot to handle!
The adventure continues in Backwoods, and pick up Paul's sister's novella in Passion and Peril, both from Harlequin HQN!
What I thought about Island Peril
I just love this series and tend to eat up these stories like a box of bonbons. There's a good amount of adventure and suspense and the characters are interesting and real. Island Peril introduces the reader to some new characters in this series, Paul and Ella. Paul's sister Paige was a main character in Passion and Peril, so if you haven't read that one, I would recommend it.
Anyway, Paul is the outdoorsy type, an ocean kayaking guide. Ella is his client. They accidentally come upon some illegal activities and so the adventure begins. This story is short, just perfect for when you are between books and you want something good to read. It also is a great prelude to Backwoods, the next full book in this series.
Like all of what I've read in this series, I enjoyed Island Peril. Although its a novella, there's lots of adventure and smexy times between Paul and Ella. It made me want to go back to the beginning of the Aftershock series and read them all again.
