When two frozen hearts collide…
Emma Reed closed her heart to love years ago after a lifetime spent getting kicked around foster homes and bad relationships. Now she’s on a mission to prove she deserves her recent award to paint a mural for a research base in Antarctica. Nothing and no one is going to get in her way.
After months working in recovery zones around the world, Hunter Wilson planned to escape everything this holiday season by rebuilding a lab at the Kiwi Research Base. Alone. No to family, no to fun. It’s isolation not intimacy he’s aching for. But when he sees the determined artist, that ache becomes an urge – after all, shouldn’t someone show her what two people can do with twenty-four hours of brilliant sunlight?
In the coldest place on earth, even the most frozen hearts can melt.

Melt is a sweet story, maybe not for everyone since it's not your typical romance, but definitely worth a shot. The romance maybe a bit rushed, but this time it makes sense - Emma and Hunter were spending a lot of time together. The chemistry between them is great from their first encounter. The... ...more

When you think of places in the world that inspire romance, does Antarctica come to mind? I admit that, to me, it definitely does not, and never has. But after reading Natalie Anderson’s Melt, I’m left to wonder why it’s never previously occurred t... ...more
This is the second book that I have read recently based in Antarctica. Who knew that frozen wasteland provided such an amazing backdrop for romance? And romance there is. I like the way that Natalie Anderson built up the romance in this book. Emma is only on the base for eleven days. Sh... ...more

I've been a fan of Natalie Anderson ever since I read "Dating and other Dangers". Even now, as I write this review, the book still brings a smile to my face. Y'all should pick it up. It was a great book. Anyways, moving on :).
The story revolves around Hunter and Emma, both of whom have bad childh... ...more
Melt is the latest from author Natalie Anderson, a preview to a new imprint being offered by Entangled Publishing, Ever After. Novella length, it lacks nothing in plot, steaminess, romance, and great characters! Hunter Wilson is everything I could want as my romance hero,... big, strong, and gorg... ...more
Time for an e-Book... and since I like to shake it up some, this one takes place in Antarctica. Emma - an ex-foster kid, hotel receptionist and self-taught artist - took a chance and entered an art contest and won. Now she gets to paint the mural on the entrance wall of an Antarctic laboratory. S... ...more
I was thinking of giving it a 3 star or 4 so it is somewhere in between those numbers.
Melt was an easy laid-back read considering its number of pages(also expect that it was fast paced but nonetheless it was adventure packed). It was not that bad, seeing as there were transient moments when the b... ...more
Natalie Anderson is a perennial reader favourite who writes for RIVA and Harlequin Presents Extra, like me! She’s also written a novella called MELT.
For a girl who always writes long and has to cut back a ridiculous amount – me! - to see a story with half the amount of words I usually write,... ...more

When I first read the info about this book, I thought to myself “Antarctica? Really?” Author Natalie Anderson has created character depth, titillating dialogue and a fun adventure... ...more
A world of frozen white in the middle of nowhere seems like a safe place for a girl with a guarded heart to do her dream job. Safe until she runs into a man that has the potential to break through her guards and melt her heart.
Emma is a girl very easy to relate to. She is experiencing an emotion... ...more
I loved the book Melt, and not only because of the awesome tag line. Natalie had me at the mention of Antartica. What could be more romantic than getting all hot, sexy and sweaty in one of the coldest places on earth?
Hunter Wilson is a man who avoids the holiday season, intimacy, and his family... ...more
A good solid read with some great emotional scenes as I would expect from this talented writer.
I felt the hero, Hunter's journey was a little rushed near the end and was also a little disappointed that Emma, the heroine could leave things as they were without trying to make things happens for a f... ...more
Although it was short, it was one heck of a read. The writing was perfect. I appreciate the wordplay even though certain play of words have been done before. The chemistry was just so right and perfect. The conflict was also so perfect (I can't think of any other word, seriously) in composition a... ...more
This was my first Natalie Anderson read and I loved it! Hunter and Emma are wonderfully created characters. They interact from the start with fun, flirty personalities.
An entertaining, fun, fast read. I enjoyed the characters, the setting, and the story. The ending was exactly what... ...more
Another great story from Natalie Anderson. Her most valuable quality as a contemporary romance author (besides the oh so easy task of creating relatable, complex characters) is her ease at helping the reader experience the vulnerability of her main characters. Her stories never seem to disappoint... ...more
Quanto vorrei vivere la stessa storia...quanto.
Datemi un Hunter ( il nome del protagonista maschile. Poche parole per descriverlo: UN FIGO DA PAURA), un uomo che ti dice "you could bring me beauty" e un viaggio in Antartide, il tutto condito con il periodo natalizio e mi fate felice, molto felice... ...more
I am a fan of Natalie Andersons and bought Melt on auto-buy.
I really enjoyed the banter between the hero and heroine. I also loved the setting in Antartica - who knew such a desolate place could be so romantic?
This is a fab read and I really enjoyed the ending. Perfect summer reading :) ...more
I thought this story was good. Since it was a Novella it was a little short for my liking but I loved it anyway. ...more
