With a storm coming and a killer on the loose, every step could be their last...
Angel Smith is finally ready to leave Antarctica for a second chance at life. But on what was meant to be her last day, the remote research station she's been calling home is attacked. Hunted and scared, she and irritatingly gorgeous glaciologist Ford Cooper barely make it out with their lives...only to realize that in a place this remote, there's nowhere left to run.
Isolated with no power, no way to contact the outside world, and a madman on their heels, Angel and Ford must fight to survive in the most inhospitable—and beautiful—place on earth. But what starts as a partnership born of necessity quickly turns into an urgent connection that burns bright and hot. They both know there's little chance of making it out alive, and yet they are determined to weather the coming storm—no matter the cost.
“That’s bananas.” Whoever was in that plane was out of their mind. Couldn’t they see what they were flying into?
“Yeah.” He swung around to look at the quickly moving storm, then back at the plane again. Was it closer than before? “They want our virus. Badly.”
For the first time since they’d started this terrible trip, Angel almost wished they’d left the samples back at base. Almost, until that nightmarish image flashed back—that moment when Sampson had put his gun to Alex’s head, and the handful of seconds afterward, when disbelief morphed into gut-squeezing shock. It would never leave her. The whole thing—the feeling of it—had been imprinted into her brain, into every cell, every part of her being.
Her eyes flicked from one quickly approaching threat to the other. In one direction, the blizzard swept angrily toward them, in the other, the red dot grew larger, carrying men who would do absolutely anything to get their payload. “What are you thinking?” she asked, afraid she knew the answer.
“I’m thinking we’re screwed.”
“Right.” She nodded. They already knew that anyway.
Closer now, the wind whipped ice crystals into the air, like sugar spinning into cotton candy. Even through the whistling, she thought she heard the sound of an engine.
“What do we do now?”
He shoved his empty bag away and grabbed his ski poles, so she did the same.
“We run.” He turned and led her straight into the coming storm.
