Mima Etu lives a quiet life with her sled dogs in the stunning Canadian Rockies. But that all changes when she stumbles upon a plane crash while out on a supply run. She’s shocked to discover the pilot is still alive—though barely. With the sun setting and the temperatures quickly dropping, Mima knows he’d never survive the trip to the nearest hospital. So she takes the stranger back to her cabin. As he heals, his vague answers to Mima’s questions about the flight tell her he has secrets. But more disturbing is the consuming, immediate attraction she senses between them. Before he lost control of his Cessna and plunged into a pilot’s hell, Gabriel Miller was on a deadly mission with precious cargo. Now he’s awakened in the comfort of a log cabin with a gorgeous woman tending to his every need. Her soft-spoken beauty sparks his longing for a different kind of life….and it isn’t long before they surrender to a blazing passion. But their blissful days are numbered. For the owners of the cargo are bent on finding Gabriel—and once they do, they don’t intend to leave any witnesses behind.
Review by Sara
I received this book through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
This is one my favorite genre of books. It's more than "Bad Boy" its a man who does bad things and is a criminal. He lives in a scary world, so he is also scary. Yet at the same time he is sexy, fierce, Super Alpha, protective and would never dream of hurting his lady. I find it hard to find these types of novels (other than Biker novels) so whenever I do I jump on one!
Beautiful Criminal didn't disappoint me one bit. I got my sexy alpha male "Bad Boy" criminal with the heart of gold in Gabe. He finds himself in a rather precarious situation having crashed his plane carrying "precious" cargo. This is where he meets Mima who nurses him back to health.
Beautiful Criminal is a quick romance at only 86 pages. I would classify it more as a contemporary romance than erotica, but that's just my opinion. I was expecting a little more steam than what i got. However, that didn't deter me from really enjoying the story, which was full of romance and danger.
I really hope Mary's story is next! I can't wait!
