Finding white-hot love in a white-out...
Eight months ago, Lee Coleman met the woman of his dreams…then lost her to another man. He buried his disappointment by throwing himself into work on the family ranch, but when a winter storm leaves him stranded, Lee finds more than shelter in the rustic safety of a hunter’s cabin—he finds a second shot at love.
Rachel Malone's heart has been broken and stomped on by her cheating ex, and she’s determined to never fall in love again. But a rebound fling? Doesn’t sound like such a bad idea, especially when she’s snowed-in with a gorgeous, sweet-talking Coleman.
Despite their off-the-charts chemistry, Lee makes it clear he wants more than a temporary romp. In fact, he’s made it his mission to put a smile back on her face, even if it means taking it slow and resisting the scorching heat between them. This time around, he wants forever, while Rachel is positive that forever is a fool's dream.
Lee can’t wait to prove her wrong…

Sweet story of Lee and Rachel. Interesting dynamics.
This is another great story in the Six Pack Ranch series that I have read and enjoyed. Lee Coleman threw himself into his work after Rachel Malone's sudden wedding, but months later he can't stand by and watch Gary humiliate Rachel without using his fists to defend her. Several months later when he stumbles upon a cabin needing shelter during a fierce blizzard he's surprised to find Rachel there mourning her marriage and her stupidity. I really enjoyed the emotional connection between these two characters as well as their smouldering sexual attraction that simmerrs throughout the entire novella. I have been a fan of this author's writing for many years and she always leaves me satisfied and wanting more. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Is age really a big thing?
The female in the story is older than the guy. That’s the big conflict. Seriously? If it were an older guy, younger woman it wouldn’t be a thing. As a woman who is older than my husband I found the melodrama about age a bit annoying.
