Snowbound at Christmas

& others. Avon Impulse. Nov. 2016. 384p. ebk. ISBN 9780062658784. $2.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
There's nothing like a major snowstorm to change lives, narrow the focus on the things that really matter, and add a little sparkle (or a dash of danger) to the holidays. The series-linked novellas in this wintry collection definitely rise to the occasion. Cruelly torn apart ten years ago, a couple are given a second chance to make things right for themselves and their young daughter in Ryan's emotionally compelling "Close to Perfect" ("Montana Men"); a pair of long-estranged lovers come to terms with their feelings when they are forced to ride out a raging blizzard at a ranch with family and friends in Lia Riley's fast-paced "Hot Winter's Night" ("Brightwater"); and two longtime friends are snowbound overnight and end up exploring feelings that have been simmering unacknowledged for years in Maisey Yates's insightful "Snowed in at Copper Ridge Lodge" ("Copper Ridge").
VERDICT Holiday ambience and stirring emotion permeate these steamy stories, making them perfect late-night reads and leaving fans yearning for a snowstorm of their own. Ryan, Riley, and Yates are West Coast authors all.
