But first, she must hone her dog sledding skills. She signs on as a dog handler for a top racer, Scott Walsh. Having to share a wilderness cabin with him poses unforeseen difficulties. Pat sees glimpses of another man beneath Scott's forbidding exterior and gives him her heart. A losing steak and unresolved personal problems leaves Scott with a massive chip on his shoulder. Yet under the spell of the vivacious Pat, he wins the Yukon Quest, the toughest long distance race. When an encounter with a moose sidelines Scott from the Iditarod race, Pat takes his place. She's sure she can win the race, but can she win his love?
About the author
I sold my first romance short story at age sixteen, which helped fund dance lessons. Later, I went on to write novellas and short stories for magazines. Emigrating to Canada was my husband Michael’s dream. It was also was mine as I wanted to experience first hand the life of the Inuit and their amazing dogs. Dogs are another of my passions. However, due to circumstances, we ended up in a tiny Prairie town where I was suddenly transported back to pioneer times. Fortunately, I had been a Girl Scout, and I wasn’t phased at having to cut blocks of ice for water. And like many a pioneer woman, I had a toddler and a babe in arms. From the prairies we moved to the Canadian Arctic, which forever holds a special place in my heart.
Wonderful story. Looking forward to more of Montcombroux's work.
