Alaskan Hope is the second Alaskan Healing Novel. While it can be read as a standalone story, you'll probably enjoy the rest of the books in the series. It took me several years to get this story to match what I saw in my imagination.

Thirty-year-old Kirima Berntsen has resigned herself to holding on to the memory of her deceased husband until she finds herself undeniably attracted to her deck boss, Mark Evans. Deciding to act on her attraction, but intent on keeping it strictly physical, Kirima moves forward by surprising him with a kiss.
Mark's intentions to return to Minnesota are put on hold as he and Kirima become closer. When she finds out she's pregnant, she absolves Mark of all responsibility, but he can't let her go.
A suspicious fire leaves Kirima and her nephew homeless and Mark takes them in despite reservations about her nephew. With so much changing so rapidly, can Mark and Kirima move past all of the obstacles and have the love they both desire?
