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.
In this heartfelt short novel, two men find unexpected love when a blizzard brings them together. Trevor Morrison is an artist enduring the final stages of kidney disease; without a transplant, his remaining lifespan can be measured in months. When a snowstorm forces him to seek shelter in a hotel, he meets Marcus Roberts, a workaholic lawyer with no time for relationships or relaxation. The two agree to share a room, and a bed. Once the storm blows over, they must return to a reality in which Trevor feels he can't make any long-term commitments. As Marcus tries to change his new lover's mind and his looming fate it may take a Christmas miracle to bring about a happy ending. Chase (Riding with Heaven) presents a charming, emotionally rich story spiced up by frequent erotic encounters, with a satisfying, natural relationship between the leads. However, the resolution feels rushed.
