    The idea of a photographer crashing her plane in remote Alaska and being found by a mysterious mountain man was what made me interested in this book. Surviving the crash, badly hurt, in freezing weather and then being found by this man, to be taken back to his cabin, Mallory was in for a long winter, without anyone but that man knowing where she was and that she had survived a plane crash. I was interested in knowing about this mountain man, Mich...

    4 Stars!(ARC provided by Montlake Romance)-“Love is the most precious commodity we have, and... even if it’s temporary... it should be cherished.” Mallory Reynolds is a woman with a lust for life. She lives in a small town in Idaho and works as a photographer. She liked to photograph animals in their natural environment and often traveled to remote landscapes untouched by man. Her job was unpredictable at times and even though she knew it c...

    Even though this book is very readable (I flew threw the pages), I felt the emotions and connection to the characters were missing. While Michael’s story was tragic you never really get to connect to it because it’s told so fleetingly. Mallory irritated me some and parts of her story felt so pointless (like the part with her ex-husband- why was this even in here? He was so clingy and almost creepy in his inability to hear “no.”). I also w...

    Mallory is a wildlife photographer facing one of my own biggest fears...Every year she travels through Alaska to take pictures of the animals. This year though, the plane she is flying herself (how kickass is that !!) goes down. Damn I hate flying !!!Thankfully she lives, and is saved by a mountain man :PMichael has been running from his past and living a secluded life in Alaska for the last 5 years.  Mallory (literally) crashing into his life f...

    This had some seriously scary moments. Mallory is a wildlife photographer and she spends a couple weeks every year in the Alaskan wild lands trying to capture pictures of as many animals she can. Just the idea that she pilots a plane all by herself is scary enough. I can't imagine then spending weeks in a tent and risking her life with all the wildlife that surrounds her for pictures. It's pretty fascinating. Then the unthinkable happens. Her pla...

    There is something so cozy about the whole, "stuck in a cabin with a gorgeous guy, in the middle of an Alaskan winter, with no place to go and nothing to do except have sex" concept that will forever draw me in. It makes me want to kick everybody out of my house, kids and dogs included, and hibernate with my husband for months on end...with nothing but carbs, soft blankets, Netflix, and his naked body. Unfortunately, Under the Northern Lights gav...

    UNDER THE NORTHERN LIGHTS was an intense story that didn’t just centre on two characters, there was virtually no-one but them. This made for a surprisingly deep story with all the feels.Mallory was a independent type of woman, flying off into the wilderness once a year to take photographs which she’d made a career out of. Mallory got into serious trouble and Michael was the quiet saviour. Michael was a complex character but a really good guy,...

    Mallory has two loves in her life, photography and flying her plane. She particularly loves photographing landscapes and wildlife. Her favourite place to do this is in North Alaska. Each year she makes a trip up there in Fall and stays for a few weeks enjoying the serenity of this special place in the world.For Michael this unique place is his home. I guess you could call it his sanctuary. It is a place he seconded himself to five years ago after...

    I actually really loved this book! If you are looking for something along the lines of Thoughtless, this isn't it. This book had much less angst and drama.Mallory is a professional photographer and prides herself on her annual trips flying herself to remote areas in hopes of catching that one magic photo that will launch her career. Unfortunately, her trip turns scary when her engine dies and she crashes into the barren forest. She is hurt, stran...

    FULL REVIEW POSTED 5/22/19SPOILER-FREE -- the book blurb will supply the hook, line and sinker!S.C. Stephens hooked me years ago with the release of Thoughtless and her ever-so-popular bad boy rock star, Kellan Kyle. And she’s continued to keep my attention with other wonderful romance stories. Now comes a much different read from this author. It begins with a basic story of survival and not just from a plane crash – but the everyday harshnes...

    This was the reclusive hero story that I've been wanting. Finally a hero that is reclusive not because he has a disability or is misunderstood by his community but a hero who has lived through a tragedy and gave up on humanity. Decided to leave civilization to live off the grid and survive off the land. This was actually a really refreshing read. Michael's past still haunts him but living alone only having to be accountable for himself is what he...

    I recieved this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have read this author previous works and was excited to start this one. The first chapter is very slow. Then the next chapter hits you with a bang. This book is close to YA so it's not like her other works.Mallory is wildlife photographer who flies to Alaska on a yearly basis. She has plane trouble and is saved by Michael. My heart broke for them you can tell he cared for ...

    This book was so boring. Such a slow burn romance that it made me yawn. First kiss 59% in. The only thing that kept me going was the animal attacks and drama of living in Alaska. It was very predictable too.

    2,5 starsUnder the Northern Lights is standalone novel by S.C.Stephens, an author that I always read gladly. The fact that it takes place in Alaska is added plus because I recently read amazing read about wilderness and greatness that is wild life in Alaska, so I was very happy to get copy of this book. I watched National Geo documentary Life Below Zero so if you want added info of life in Alaska and Alaskan winter definitely watch that. Now onto...

    Check out all of my reviews at: https://www.avonnalovesgenres.comUNDER THE NORTHERN LIGHTS by S.C. Stephens is a sweet contemporary romance set in the Alaskan wilderness. This romance is a very slow burn with a reclusive hero who rescues a heroine trapped and injured in the wilderness by her small plane crash. (Depending on your personal preferences, I believe it should be disclosed that this story has dialogue about Christian faith and values.)M...

    I'm always a sucker for a good adventure story, so this one was just my style. I admired the courageous main character, Mallory Reynolds, as she headed off alone to the Alaskan wilderness for a yearly trek to photograph wildlife. The unthinkable happened, and her plane's engine stalled during a storm. Unable to avoid a crash, Mallory is hurt, but amazed that she survived. Even with her injuries and having lost almost all of her supplies, she mana...

    The synopsis had me really intrigued. A photographer was in a plane crash on a deserted Alaska. She was rescued and nursed to health by a mysterious mountain man. They were stuck together for months before the weather could clear enough for her to go home. As she recovers they got to know each other and eventually fell in love (not without a huge bumpy road ahead). She is convinced that fate brought them together but Michael is not ready to take ...

    ⭐⭐Under the Northern Lights’ cover art is beautiful and such a refreshing change from the unimaginative naked torso cover art that the romance genre is oversaturated with. The cover art, as well as me being a huge fan of S. C. Stephens’ Thoughtless series, immediately drew me in. But it’s possible my expectations were set unrealistically high, because I’m sorry to say this one wasn’t for me. It was painfully slow at times, particula...

    "We needed to be extremely cautious with each other, because despite everything out there that might hurt us—being mauled by a bear, frozen in a river, impaled by a felled tree, or lost for all eternity in the woods—losing our hearts to each other might be the deadliest of all." Yes, I'm one of the millions of readers who enjoyed the author's Thoughtless series. So, of course, I was excited to get my hands on another of her stories. Though I ...

    I couldn't put it down. Sucked in from the get-go. She has a way with words that keep me glued to the screen. Juggled my 8 month old and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning. I missed that feeling.

    I hadn't read an S.C. Stephens book since Thoughtless, but I thought I'd give this one a go since I love wilderness stories, plane crash survival stories, etc. It still retains a New Adult feel, even though the protagonists are established adults. The plane crash scene was great...exciting and edge of your seat. There were definitely some dramatic survival moments that kind of brought you back to reality within the romance. I do wish there had be...

    It's hard to believe that this book is written by the same author that gave us Kellan Kyle, his band, and the best love triangle of all time!! Because this romance is a completely different vibe!! I feel like it could even be a different market of readers and genre of romance!?! If you are looking for something reminiscent of a traditional romance or something with the same storyline as K.A Tuckers' The simple wild - than pick this up!!!I'm givin...

    This was so original, a little like Castaway the Alaskan edition. Mallory is a wildlife photographer and all around outdoors gal whose plane crashes in the middle of nowhere en route to her latest photo assignment. She’s rescued by a true mountain man, Michael, and for reasons I won’t go into, they are both stuck in his remote log cabin for months and months until he can repair his plane and return them to civilisation. I loved the originalit...
