Winter G. Beauman is a wealthy and sought-after bachelorette from NY, hiding in a small town in WY, from her past, and her parents. Tired of the loveless match-ups orchestrated by her father in order to secure a husband for her, and a leader to take over his company, Winter has moved, changed her name, and stays far away from men and the paparazzi, until she meets Mason St. Croix.
Mason is a widower living on a large ranch with his horses, and he's hounded by his in-laws over his wife's death. After getting suckered into playing "Santa" for the kids, Mason thought it would be a great idea to have one of his own horses pull him in a sleigh, one that he hopes Winter can make for him.
When Mason meets Winter for the first time, it is love at first sight, or lust? Not sure. But there are sparks, for sure, lol. While hashing out the details for the sleigh, Winter recommends Crystal, her best friend, for the wood work needed. Once the ball is rolling on the sleigh, the action begins. Winter's shop is attacked, while she's in it, and that's just the beginning!
The story takes us deeper into Mason's past, a lot to do with his deceased wife Beth, and her screwed up family. You think the main focus would be Winter right? But it takes this turn, and is mainly about Mason, and the NY connection they didn't even know they had. The death threats, and attempts, force the two of them on the run, trying to figure out what the hell is going on. During one of the attacks, Crystal was injured, and her emergency contact person was notified per her request.
When Henry Wen showed up I was floored! Woo hoo! Henry is here now bitches! Special Agent Henry L. Wen is introduced in Harvest Ride, Book 1, and is to die for yummy, and kick ass! Speaking of characters, Mason is my favorite person in this book, hands down! His scary dark side that comes out and takes over is super hot! This side of Mason is the total opposite of his mild mannered math teaching, geek wearing glasses, horse whispering side. Apparently Winter likes him as well, because she not only obeys his every command, but it also makes her panties soaking wet!
Winter's character was pretty cool. She thought outside the silver spoon-fed box, which her parents hated, and she treated people like human beings. She stood up for herself, kicked ass, and chose her battles carefully with her father. Winter's father is an ass. Hate him, glad she stands up to him, but his existence makes me ill. Winter's mother isn't much of a presence, but considering she's married to an ass, does everything her husband tells her to do, and doesn't speak up for herself, well that tells you what kind of twat she is. The way their lives intertwined with one another was pretty awesome, and made the story very intriguing for me. At times I didn't realize how engrossed I was until my outbursts were commented on by my family, LOL! I loved this book! It will definitely be an enthusiastic recommendation from me as well as part of my re-read collection!
