✱✱Book Review✱✱ BOLD FORTUNE by M.M. Crane


Opposites burn hot enough to melt the snow and ice of an Alaskan winter in this all-new series from USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane.
Quinn Fortune is the official protector of all the unspoiled beauty in Lost Lake, Alaska, as the head of the community trust. A rugged frontiersman through and through, he doesn't do soft. But he can't help his fascination with the pink-clad professor who shows up in Lost Lake seeking his approval for her cheerful outsider’s proposal about land that isn’t hers. Still, he agrees to consider it—if she can handle a month of good old-fashioned Alaska living. He’s betting she’ll head back to the safety of the Lower 48 within the week.
Violet Parrish is a thinker, not a doer, but desperate times call for extraordinary measures—like taking on the Alaskan wilderness. In January. Off the grid. With a mountain man hot enough to melt a glacier. The frozen Alaskan tundra should be no match for Violet’s determination, but the sheer immensity of the Last Frontier takes her by surprise—as does her attraction to gruff, impossibly handsome Quinn, and the unexpected heat that burns between them during the freezing Alaska nights…

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Small town, opposites attract, grumpy hero/perky heroine - Bold Fortune is a terrific mix of some of my favorite romance tropes. Plus it's the start of a brand new series and it's set in Alaska! That's a pretty good combination in my opinion, and MM Crane definitely delivers. Not that I didn't expect just that. I've had the pleasure of reading some of Megan Crane's Alaskan romances, so I expected great things from her pseudonym.
Violet and Quinn are so great together. Even when Quinn throws every trick in the book at her, Violet hangs right in there and shows the stuff she's made of. And Quinn is one of my favorite types of hero. He's grumpy, but he's full of heart. The blurb sure hits the nail on the head because when things heat up between this pair, it'll absolutely melt the snow even in frozen Alaska.
This first in the Fortunes of Lost Lake series also introduces a fantastic small-town setting and some secondary characters I'll be hoping to see in future books. If you enjoy small-town romance set in beautiful Alaska, Bold Fortune is definitely a must-read.
