North of Need

Hearts of the Anemoi, #1

Megan Snow is still reeling from the loss of a loved one so she decides to take a vacation at a cabin in the mountains. The simple act of making a snowman brings the mysterious Owen Winters to her door.

North of Need was sweet with some heat mixed in throughout the story. The motivation behind the actions of the main characters was very straight forward.The story had an even pace to it and while I liked the easy chemistry between the Owen and Megan I was happy when conflict - between the characters as well as internal conflict - was added to the mix. North of Need is one of those books you can read and re-read.

Book Blurb for North of Need

Desperate to escape agonizing memories of Christmas past, twenty-nine-year-old widow Megan Snow builds a snow family outside the mountain cabin she once shared with her husband, realizing too late that she’s recreated the very thing she’ll never have.

Called to life by Megan’s tears, snow god Owen Winters appears unconscious on her doorstep in the midst of a raging blizzard. As she nurses him to health, Owen finds unexpected solace in her company and unimagined pleasure in the warmth of her body, and vows to win her heart for a chance at humanity.

Megan is drawn to Owen’s mismatched eyes, otherworldly masculinity, and enthusiasm for the littlest things. But this Christmas miracle comes with an expiration—before the snow melts and the temperature rises, Megan must let go of her widow’s grief and learn to trust love again, or she’ll lose Owen forever.
