A Match Made in Alaska  Hunter Jacobson wants no part of his grandfather's matchmaking. The lone cowboy is certain that's what the old man is doing when he trades part of their Montana ranch for Scarlett Murphy's claim to an old Alaska gold mine. Or is he running one of his legendary scams on the sweet single mom? A trip to Dry Creek, Alaska, reveals the truth—and brings Hunter and Scarlett face-to-face with a past family feud and a vulnerable present. But surprisingly it's the future that intrigues Hunter most…if he can get Scarlett to make him her groom. NORTH TO DRY CREEK: The road to Alaska is paved with loveHunter Jacobson wants no part of his grandfather's matchmaking.

Every so often I like to go back to my “reading roots” and grab a Harlequin Romance! (This is where my love for reading as an adult really kicked in! I’ve always loved to read, but this was where I began devouring books. They were my total gateway drug!) And when I saw Alaskan Sweethearts on Netgalley? I took it as a sign – I love Alaska, and was really wishing I could go back, so I HAD to read this. (I was only momentarily disappointed when I realized the bulk of the book took place in Montana – but that’s ok, it was such a sweet story!)

Hunter is one of those broody heroes that you can’t help but love. And Scarlett is one of those stubborn leading ladies that you just want to smack sometimes – her ex-husband was an emotionally abusive jerk (or at least, he didn’t give a darn about her or their son) and so she’s understandably skeptical – but that led to annoyance on my part more often than not! But for me, I loved Hunter’s grandpa. I wish we’d had more of him! (And we eventually did, a little bit.)

Alaskan Sweethearts is exactly what one expects of a Harlequin Romance – especially the Love Inspired line! It’s short, sweet and to the point. There’s a dose of faith in this one, being part of the Love Inspired, but it doesn’t go beyond a trip to church on a Sunday. We quickly ride the roller coaster of love with Hunter and Scarlett, and in the end? All the t’s are crossed and the i’s dotted. It’s a satisfying romance, worth of a quick weekend read!
