Where life’s currents take you…

Dana Raynott just traveled 3,600 miles to reunite with the brother who changed his name and fled to Alaska nineteen years ago. It’s impossible not to be moved by this wild, breathtaking state, even if Dana’s no closer to finding the answers she came here for.

Her brother’s best friend, Anchorage engineer Sam MacKettrick, might be able to help her. He’s strong and kind—a six-foot, irresistible blend of diverse cultures. He’s also haunted by a tragic family history with a startling connection to Dana’s past…

Even Shopping is Different

My first ever Harlequin, THE ALASKAN CATCH, takes place in my hometown of Anchorage, Alaska. Anchorage is a typical American city in a lot of ways, but with its own personal style. For example, we have an international airport, a small plane airport, and a float plane airport. A wayward moose can throw a real wrench into rush-hour traffic. Many of the pedestrian overpasses are specifically designed to accommodate sled dog teams.

And then there’s shopping. The downtown Saturday market is great, and there are plenty of fun and quirky shops, but we also have the same mall and box stores you find in most cities. Still, even in the box stores, you’ll find the Alaska shopping experience just a little different.

Here are ten clues you maybe in an Alaskan Store:

  • There seems to be an overabundance of moose and salmon-themed items.


  • The guy in front of you in the 10-items-or-less line is carrying a gallon of milk and a dipnet the size of a Volkswagen.

  • Tucked among the impulse items like lip balm and breath mints, you spot bug armor.


  • You can get your cookies, fishing license, RV antifreeze, and work clothes all at the same place.


  • In the liquor department, someone has started a lively discussion about the best wine to serve with moose tenderloin.


  • Duct tape and Spam take up a surprising large amounts of shelf space.


  • The seafood clerk is willing to share her salmon spread recipe, but not her secret fishing spot.
  • The borders of the parking lot are occupied by RVs, complete with camp chairs and grills.

  • You have to negotiate past piles of waxed fish boxes to reach the produce department.


10) It’s 9:00pm and your cashier mentions he might go hiking when he gets off work.
