There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.
Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.
Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.
When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever. So it’s no secret, I love Chase books, and when one brings me to tears with the first paragraph. Well, I know it’s best read while I’m alone with a cup of tea and fresh box of tissues. So 11PM Sunday night curled up in a comfy chair, I begin, again. Almost 1AM, I’m crying, tea long gone and book with it’s HEA complete. And I of course have to be up early Monday morning for work, sigh.
We start the tale with Trevor, getting the news he’s been expecting but never welcome. Few days before Christmas he now knows this will be his last unless a miracle happens. So getting home to his family across the country is the most important thing right now.
Marc, a lawyer is also stuck in the snow, he’s on the other hand is simply because he has nowhere else to go and no one to go home to. Have given up his dreams and then his family years ago.
I love how this time the love interest and the one pushing that interest is not the one you’d expect. How I’ll never give up on you, is so true through out this tale. And of course, even though its after Christmas we do get our miracle.
