When Cole Steele, a womanizer rumored to have killed his father, meets Maia Armstrong, a veterinarian rumored to practice magic, the sizzling romance could melt all the snow on his Wyoming ranch. And when an injured horse brings them together, Cole can’t help but believe that Maia casts spells on animals—and men. What else could explain the burning passion he feels for her and the thawing of his heart just in time for Christmas?
This story has the true Christmas miracle, showing what love can do in a shattered life.
The Steele brothers have such a fragile connection. Their lives are shadowed by the horrid abuse their father cast upon them. It is so touching, heartbreaking, to see them try to get to know each other, trust each other, learn to love. The connection between them is delicate and frail, but so full of understanding and support.
Maia and Cole's romance burns hot, it is passionate, but also brittle, since they both feel unfit for love and commitment. I absolutely loved reading about them, the way they opened up to each other, and took the delicate steps towards each other. Cole, the confident alpha male, has found his true match, and together they are strong.
The mystery of the accidents escalating, the incidents bringing intrigue and questions into the snowy ranch.
Dark, edgy, but so sweet and romantic story, that will string your heart and stay with you for a long while
