Publisher's Summary

Nothing is easy about life above the Arctic Circle. Except, perhaps, falling in love.
Bryson Faulkner embraces the challenges that come with making a home in one of the most beautiful but unforgiving places on earth: the isolation of the endless wilderness, the harsh and unpredictable climate, and the predators that lurk about her remote cabin. And even the most perilous dangers of all - those that await her when she takes to the skies as one of Alaska's most daring bush pilots. The only thing missing is a special woman to share it all with, but she's resigned herself to the fact that few people can thrive in such an extreme environment.
Everything Karla Edwards thought she knew gets called into question when a series of events turns her comfortable and well-ordered life on its ear. Her partner leaves her, her mother dies, and Karla learns she has a sister in Alaska she never knew. She takes a leave of absence from her job as an ER nurse in Atlanta and heads to the far north, seeking answers and adventure. She finds all that and more when she crosses paths with a sexy bush pilot who opens her eyes to new possibilities. But can she open her heart as well and learn to trust again?

A complex enemies to lovers lesbian romance novel

What did you love best about Breaking the Ice?

It deals with difficult themes like grief and hereditary disease but still delivers a satisfying romance.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Bryson is not your typical lesfic lead, but everything about her is interesting and wonderful. She loves her cabin without running water or TV/internet, she’s a woman in a typically male dominated profession, and she’s a perfect blend of pragmatic and kind.


Which character – as performed by Kim Baldwin – was your favorite?

I didn't have a favourite. She did a great job with all of them.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wouldn't say I laughed or cried, but I enjoyed it very much and had a hard time pausing it.


Any additional comments?

If you’ve ever talked to me about lesfic or taken a peek at my Goodreads shelves, it’ll be no surprise to you that I’m a huge fan of Kim Baldwin’s books, and Breaking the Ice is one of my very favourites. I love her Alaska books because she perfectly balances action with romance, giving enough detail that I can imagine the setting, but not so much that I get bored. How she does it, I don’t know, but I admire it every time I pick up one of her books.

I received a free copy from the publisher for an honest review at The Lesbian Review.
