Danica Welsh was born to be the leopard pack healer. An accident involving a drug induced youth left her badly burned and scared-emotionally and physically. Without the ability to heal by touch, she secludes herself to the edge of town, away from Ashwood Falls' overly concerned citizens. All hope of mating and family become a distance dream. When she finally starts to accepts the long, lonely existence ahead of her, a stranger crashes into her life, and her heart.
After Nevan Mathews' fiancée died three ago, he submerged himself into his work, cutting off all reminders of a life he dreamed of with the woman he loved. He lets his step-mother talk him into taking the first vacation in five years to visit for the holidays. But an accident delays his travel plans, sending him to Danica's doorstep and raises a need he thought he would never feel again. Can they tear down the walls around their hearts and submit to the passion before another claims Dani for his own?
Warning: Contains a shifter who's scars run deeper than skin, a human who has the heart of a shifter, and a snow storm that's sure to have them both reaching for warmth.
The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I was given a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.
Nevan Mathews’ fiancé died three years ago and since that time he has hidden himself in his work. He hasn't been home in five years so he lets his step-mother talk him into coming home on vacation. Nevan loves his step-mother and his step-brothers but has not been able to visit them since his father's death. On his way to visit his family Nevan has an accident and runs his car off the road. His car is damaged to the point where he can't drive it and is left stranded.
Danica Welsh is a shapeshifter who was in an accident several years ago that left burned and scared. Danica has lost all hope of ever finding someone to love her. She moves on the edge of the town of Ashwood Falls’ hiding away in her own little world. One night she goes out for a stroll after shifting into a leopard. With her mind far away in la-la land Danica runs across the road in front of a vehicle causing it to run off the road. Danica gets the guy to follow her home. What choice does she have it is her fault that he ran off the road and is now stranded. She can't leave him out there in the snow he would freeze to death.
Danica and Nevan are attracted to each other but can they put aside all the things that they have been through in their lives and learn to trust and love again? After seeing how much Danica and Nevan care for one another a member of Danica's pack, Jarred asked the pack's leader for Danica's hand in marriage. Danica doesn't want anything to do with him because he does not love her and nor does she love him. Will Danica have a choice in who she wants to spend the rest of her life with? Or will the pack leader make this choice for her? Can Nevan win Danica for his own?
Winter Eve is a short read but if you like shapeshifter stories then I think you would also like Winter Eve. Although it is a short story it is a good read. Winter Eve introduces you to the characters in the new series Ashwood Falls.
