You will Shiver in dread, Shiver in frustration and you will Shiver with desire .Aidan thought he could make it in and out to finish the last chapter dealing with his father. But that hard hateful man has yet more pain in store for his son. Now as Aidan trapped in the deadly cold, snow falling slowly around him he knows the promise to stay away is about to be broken.But a promise broken can sometimes set you free and eventually free you to fly.

    This was my first book by Tiffinie and now I am truly sorry I waited so long. The story line was extremely captivating, and had me rooted to my chair from start to finish, and the characters gave off just the right vibe to make the story realistic with everything they go through. This is an actual book too, not one of the ever popular, but extremely overdone trilogies, or one that ends on a cliffhanger. It has a start, a middle and a finish!!!!! This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a stand-alone with no problems whatsoever! I never once felt like I was missing pieces from previous stories, however now that I have read this one, I will be going back to start from the beginning. A definite must read, and an author I will be watching and waiting for new releases from.

    SHIVER is the 3rd book in Tiffinie Helmer’s “Romance on the Edge Series”, but it was so cleverly written, it can be read as a total standalone, while still part of a wonderful series.In SHIVER, we get a wonderful glimpse into the unique life style of people living in the Interior region of Alaska. The descriptions are so meticulous and accurate, making the readers feel like they have personally visited Fairbanks and the surrounding area. Just reading about the magnificent landscape and the incredible people who live in these lands is an adventure in itself. The visual images that Ms. Helmer presents will leave you breathless.But the real meat of the story is Aidan Harte and Raven Maiski. Readers met Aiden in book 2, Hooked, where we got a hint of this poor tortured soul. In SHIVER we get to learn just how broken Aidan really is. He is one of the most anguish, flawed and self-loathing hero I have ever read about, yet at the same time Aiden, is intelligent, gentle and one of the most caring, loving Alpha male to grace a story. It broke my heart reading about his anguish as he returns home to settle his late father affairs and seeing the women he loved and lost all those years ago. Raven Maiski was just as tormented, vulnerable and flawed as Aiden. She was the one who asked Aiden to leave town, never return and now he was back. Raven didn’t know how to handle the emotions that came with seeing him again. The amount of time my heart broke for Aiden, I think I spent being irritated with Raven. She masked her pain with angry and it was all directed at poor Aiden. Raven also struggled with a deep fear, that he would discover the secret that she had kept from him all these years.If that wasn’t enough angst to keep you sitting on the edge of your seat, let’s throw in a mystery. Someone is out to harm Aiden and no one knows why. Will he find the strength to save himself and the women he loves? Will Raven be able to overcome the past in order to find the truth? Can these two beleaguered souls ever find peace?Tiffinie Helmer has created a story of emotions, it had excitement, passion, heartbreak, intrigue, mystery and suspense. Once you start reading, you won’t be able to put the book down until you get to the very end!SHIVER will be an adventure you won’t soon forget.

    This is the first book that I've read of Tiffinie Helmer's, but not my last. What an exciting & wonderful story, it will make you laugh one minute and the next minute you have tears in your eyes or you'll go from being angry to being happy or feel sorrow to being giddy like your on cloud nine or sexually frustrated to completely sated. It will make you shiver in the most extraordinary ways, the book name fits perfect. You never know what to expect with each turn of the page and that makes for a well written story. This book is amazing and complex in its own right. So if you haven't read it, my question to you is...what are you waiting for!? I highly recommend this book, please do not deny yourself the pleasures you will receive when reading this excellent story! Shiver can be read as a stand-alone and the way the author ended this story it could continue or not, but I hope & believe it does! This is the third book in this series, and I have a reading rule to never read a book series out of order. However, I stepped outside of my box with this one, and yes broke that rule with no regrets cause this book is worth it. With that being said, I am going to go back and read the first two books in this series and probably read Shiver again, hopefully before the forth book is released. Wish me luck...lol! Thank you Tiffinie for writing such an intriguing & captivating read!!! :)

    LOVED IT! LOVED IT! LOVED IT! Did I mention I loved it? I just finished this book and can say Ms. Helmer did it again; another hit! It was odd to me since I really didn't like Aiden in Hooked...at all, but from the moment I started Shiver I just loved him. The heartbreak he experienced while in love at a young age, the lack of love at the hands of his own family, and then the awful memory (and guilt) he will forever live with for the rest of his life for his final actions towards his father, almost brought me to tears. As in the other books in this series, I'm amazed at how the author brings every aspect of the story to life. Almost gives you the feel that you're right there and you're experiencing it just as the characters are. I can't recommend this series enough to readers looking for that perfect combination of romantic contemporary/suspense writing. The only problem I have now is waiting for the next book in the series!

    Shiver was pimped (cough) I mean recommended to me by a friends, and dang her hide anyway. She knows There are not enough hours in a day to read all the good books out there, and now I have another author to add to my list!Shiver takes place in Alaska and gives a wonderful look at the life and culture of Chatanika, a small town near Fairbanks. The first page and grabs hold of you until the end. Shiver provides both external elements of suspense. From a bear trap,a hit over the head, shots fired,kidnapping,murder, mystery and a hidden stash of gold. Then we have the internal suspense, will Aiden and Raven reconcile? Does Fox know who his father is? Will Aiden finally find what he's looking for?The characters are well drawn. I really felt like I knew them all by the end of the story. The back story was well told and cleverly interspersed into the storyline.I really enjoyed Shiver and will definitely be purchasing the rest of the Romance on the Edge Series.

    This book left me speechless, breathless, and any other word for just ridiculously in love! Aidan Harte is the perfect anti-hero. He's wounded, smart, talented, driven, and flawed. Watching him become the man he wants to be as he faces the mistakes of his past and the woman he's loved and lost. Raven is funny, strong, and vulnerable and I love her entire family. Good thing we get to read about them all! The tension, the passion, the danger and the surprises kept me turning the pages until the very end. Keep this series going, Ms. Helmer, because I love to lose myself in the wilds of Alaska that you create

    The first book I've read by this author and I have to say it will not be my last! Ms Helmer kept me spellbound, sharing every emotion right along with her characters. The action was fast-paced and kept my eyes riveted to the page, at times hurrying, trying to help Aidan or Raven, or Fox. The title is well-chosen, I had to do most of my reading in the evening and I was literally shivering due to the weather outside AND the landscape in the story! An excellent book, well written. Tiffinie Helmer is now one of my favorite authors!

    Heart wrenching romance and murder mystery! I loved this story! It is my 5th Tiffinie Helmer book and I've loved them all so far! They have very strong women and hot, strong, silent types for men. But eventually both of them let their emotional sides show! The story will have your chest squeezing for Aidan, you will laugh at Fox and his antics, and wonder how many times Eva will have to patch Aidan up! And now a bit about the story...Aidan has returned to Chatanika, Alaska - something he promised never to do. With Earl dead he has to clean up his place so it can be sold and then he can forget all about Chatanika. Except nothing is ever as simple as we want it to be. His father has booby-trapped his property and Aidan gets caught in a bear trap. If someone human doesn't find him soon he hopes the cold will kill him before the wolves get to him. Luckily Fox happens to be coming to visit Earl and rescues him. Aidan is taken back to the local lodge where he dreads running into all the people he grew up with. He is a Harte and knows he is trouble. He just wanted to clean up and get out. This is a great story of watching Aidan recover and falling in love all over again with Raven. But there is still a murder out there after Aiden and Raven has her secrets, grab a copy and join the cast of Shiver!Favorite passages: - “Don’t go anywhere.” She slammed the door and left. He watched her walk into the entrance of the grocery store. He didn’t like having to stay in the car. He wasn’t a kid, or a dog. - Besides what was a little physical pain when his emotional pain would have most putting a bullet in their head? He’d thought about ending it all. Had even tried pulling the trigger a few months back, but something had kept him from actually taking his own life. - "Plus, what Mom doesn’t know, doesn’t hurt me, right?” - “No.” Raven pulled at his arm. “We need to get you out of these wet clothes first.” He gave her a sardonic look. “Not tonight, honey. I have a headache.” “Funny.” - Raven grinned. “Once a month, Gran meets with a group of friends who are concerned over protecting the habitat of the mosquito.” “Excuse me?” His brows shot up in disbelief. “They get together and drink Bloody Marys in sympathy of the mosquitoes’ plight.” - I know you love him. I just don’t understand why you won’t admit it.” The kid was too observant. “It’s complicated.” “So’s math, but I’m making an effort.”

    A great read with wonderful characters. KC, the moose, in Moosed Up sucked me into Ms Helmer's books and I've been a fan ever since.This book proves that she has what it takes to keep bringing readers back book after book. The mystery keeps you turning pages and the struggle to deal with the choices made, good and bad, but done out of love give this story real depth and heart.

    From the very first scene, I was drawn into Shiver. Aidan and Raven are destined to be together, and even though they seemed determined to stay apart, their love won’t be denied. Ms. Helmer’s latest book is a riveting tale of secrets and passion that kept me reading long into the night. As with all of her books, I highly recommend Shiver.

    This is sort of a typical romance in the way the female and male leads bounce back and forth towards and away from each other like rubber bands, but most of the reasons in both of their cases are rather legit. There is a lot of family history, town history and personal history between Raven and Aidan and everyone in the town of Chatanika. This author definitely knows her settings, characters and culture. A good level of detail no matter the scene but not too much in most cases. It's very easy to picture everything in your mind's eye: smell and taste the blueberry cookies, hear the ice covered snow crunching underfoot, feel the rust and dust covering well used cabin floorboards and bear traps. Yes, it does take place in Alaska, folks. ;)There are a few love scenes but nothing too graphic. There are some specifics but they're a bit euphemistic. I like more heat and description in mine, but if you like things a bit more left to the imagination, this will be just fine for you.All of the characters have specific voices and there are a lot of them of which to keep track. Most of the time I was able to keep them all straight. It may have helped that I'd read sometime earlier this year her Hooked (I rated this four stars: better story to me) and enjoyed that. A few of the characters from that get mentioned in this story and then show up in the last quarter of the book. There is also a main story point from that book which influences some actions of several of the characters here. It's all explained, though, so I would say though that you could definitely read this as a stand alone.Aidan seemed to be a one-man bad luck magnet of rather large proportions, he just couldn't catch a break. It worked the first couple of times, fitting into the story and as a tool to force he and Raven together for short periods of time. It didn't feel ridiculous after that necessarily, but it was easy to see that it was used to fuel his anger. There is a child in the story (this is fine, no worries) but the initial voice in which he was written made him seem older than what he is. It was only after I remembered the timeline that I figured out his age, which was confirmed in conversation later on. It did feel more accurate as the story went on and we heard more from him.If you're looking for a well written book, rich descriptions, rather well drawn characters and light on the heat factor, then this is definitely a romance for you. Enjoy. :)

    I have been a fan of Tiffinie Helmer for some time now and could not wait to read her latest book. Let me tell you it did not disappoint. It is the 3rd book in this series, but it can easily be read as a stand alone novel. I loved the characters, it had a great plot line and plenty of emotional ups and downs and lots of action. And lets not forget it also had some steamy scenes that could melt snow. I am also convinced I need to pick up pottery and a trip to Alaska might just have to be in my future. I highly recommend this book and I am looking forward to many more great books from this talented author.

    Graphic novelist, Aidan Harte, has returned to Chatanika, Alaska to clean out his father's house after being gone for a long time. His former love, Raven Maiski is not happy to learn of Aidan's return. She is afraid to risk her heart to him again and she has secrets that she wants to keep from him and from her family. Someone else also wants Aidan to leave and tries to run him off, getting more dangerous as times passes and he remains in Alaska.Tiffinie Helmer has written some interesting books set in Alaska. I have enjoyed learning about the harsh winters and wildness of Alaska. This book has romance, danger, and secrets. All of which make for an interesting read. This is the third book in her Romance on the Edge series and just as good as the first two.

    Another fantastic work by Tiffinie Helmer. Anyone who has read Tiffinie before will have come to expect fantastically descriptive novels that leave you wanting to read more of the same. This the 3rd book in her ‘Romance on the Edge’ series is an outstanding example of the work. The general story-line can be found through any internet search; what a search wouldn’t say would be that you the reader will be drawn into the lives of the characters, wanting to know them personally and in the case of the two leads Aidan and Raven you’ll think you do. Definitely one to read if you are reading the series or a great introduction to Tiffinie Helmer.

    One of these days I'm going to have to go back and read all these books in the order they should be instead of the "series" they are in. I'm hesitant to purchase sometimes cause when reading the blurbs I get a sense of deja vu and think I've already read the book when that isn't the case at all I've only seen a preview in a previous book I've read. Don't get me wrong...the books are awesome and I'm not trying to put down the author, I'm just someone with memory problems that gets confused easily and it frustrates me.

    Okay. First of all, this book was well written, and I usually really enjoy this author. That being said, I have to say that I despised Raven, and was afraid of how far Aidan would go at any time; it never seemed like he had a complete lid on his temper, and I'm not sure that I believed he had it under control. This book languished on my TBR pile; I knew it ha a secret child trope, which is always so difficult to pull off; having kids, I can't imagine not telling their father about them at all, much less for 11 years. I finished it! Yay me~

    I have to say Aidan is my favorite hero of all the Tiffinie Helmer Books. Aidan appeared in Ms. Helmer's Book "Hooked". A tortured soul he was and needed his own book. Wow and did this author write him as an awesome character. Raven was a strong willed Alaskan woman and I can relate to that. Fox stole the show so to speak of some scenes. Loved the names of all the characters. Loved this book and have read it several times.

    The sins of the father...Aidan returns to Alaska to take care of his father's things following his death. He is reunited with the love of his life, Raven and learns she has a son, his son. This is a wonderful book full of mystery. intrigue and of course romance all of which take place in the beautiful and potentially deadly state.There are so many elements to this story it is hard to name them all. Trust me this is definitely worth a read!

    As the third book in this series it was phenomenal. Characters from previous books and novellas blended nicely. As always she creates this beautiful place in Alaska and gives us an adventure like no other, with a side of hot steamy sex. I do believe Lynx has been my favorite character from the Wild Men of Alaska series, however Aidan has captured that role. Looking forward to the next adventure!

    I loved this book! I've read all of Ms. Helmer's books, and this one is by far my favorite. I couldn't stand Aiden in Hooked), but after learning more about his story in Shiver it was easier to sympathize with him, and root for his happy ending.

  • Nina

    Though this is the third book in Ms. Helmer's "Romance on the Edge" novels, it is the first book I have read. A wonderful standalone novel of love lost, found and lost again, it is the romance story of second chances. Set in the wild Alaskan outback, the suspense part of the story will keep you turning pages long past bedtime. I have no doubt I will be picking up other books in this series.
