Three things you will learn whilst reading the Edge of Survival by Toni Anderson;

· Diabetes is a far more dangerous disease than you realise;

· Girls, we’re looking for love in all the wrong places; it’s in rough, isolated mining communities;

· Toni Anderson can write a good thriller romance without losing pace.

Toni describes Cameran Young (Cam) as one of the gutsiest, most intelligent characters she’s ever written and, as a good protagonist requires flaws, her heroine, suffers with diabetes. This physical challenge plays an important role in the story, creating constant tension as she manages her disease.

Cam is a biologist sent to an isolated North Canadian mining project to assess their impact on the native wildlife. Within the first chapter and, on Cam’s first day, she discovers the dead body of a local prostitute. She also meets Daniel Fox, an ex SAS Sergeant, with a guilty past, who is to be her, and, her assistant Vikki’s, helicopter pilot.

Their attraction to each other is immediate but they both battle their desire to act upon their feelings. Haunted by his memories of his last SAS assignment, Daniel an emotional loner wishes Cam gone, whilst feeling an overwhelming urge to protect her. Daniel represents everything Cam dislikes in a man. He’s not only an arrogant womaniser but she suspects he is also a cold blooded killer with a violent past.

But there is a killer on the loose and he has decided Cameran is a threat. As Staff Sergeant Kershaw investigates the killing, Daniel and Cam find themselves not only attempting to avoid falling in love but also attempting to stay alive. Not an easy thing in an isolated community where outsiders are unwelcome and the killer has all the advantages.

Toni Anderson is donating fifteen% of her royalties to diabetes research, which is another good reason to enjoy the guilty pleasure of Edge of Survival.

Enjoyed it, but the suspense bit got a bit carried away at the end. ( )

In the wilds of northern Canada, a biologist living with diabetes falls for an ex-British military man haunted by his past in Toni Anderson's romantic suspense EDGE OF SURVIVAL. The book opens with a bang as Dr. Cameran Young finds the body of a murdered woman on her arrival in Labrador. Cameran is there to study the impact of mining on the local fish population. She never planned on becoming involved in a murder investigation, or with the helicopter pilot hired to help her during her research.

Daniel was part of an elite team in the Special Air Service in the British army, but he has been suffering ever since his last mission ended in tragedy. Daniel's job as a helicopter pilot stationed in the middle of nowhere was supposed to protect him from becoming involved with anyone. But, there's something about Cameran that draws him to her, and since trouble seems to follow her around, Daniel can't help but be there to protect her.

EDGE OF SURVIVAL was a thrilling, fast paced story with well drawn characters. Ms. Anderson did an excellent job creating a heroine faced with the challenges of having diabetes. Cameran was smart, strong and determined to achieve the goals she set for herself. Daniel will have lovers of tortured heroes swooning. Daniel is the type who is difficult to like at first, but you can't resist wanting to see the right woman save him.

I really enjoyed the plot and the unique setting of this book. I studied environmental science in college, so I found Cameran's research project intriguing, and Northern Labrador sounds so beautiful. I always wanted to be a part of an environmental impact assessment team, but alas, it wasn't to be. I'm happy I can live vicariously through amazing characters.

EDGE OF SURVIVAL is full of action, multi-dimensional characters with plenty of angst, page-turning suspense and romance. I give it 4½ stars! I received my copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Favorite Quote(s):
He needed to get away from her and the way she made him feel. He'd gotten drawn in again today. She terrified him. He'd experienced frustration, arousal, fear, excitement, fury and terror in the space of a few short hours, when he usually felt nothing but numb indifference. ( )
