Review by Rose

He’s running from his past; she’s running from her future. But on a snowy winter night, they find each other and the surprising gift of love.

Sir Nicholas has given up on marriage. These days he’s content to captain his friend’s troops and avoid entanglements—until one winter night when he rescues a half-frozen woman from a snowstorm. Her irrepressible spirit and kindness to others reminds him that all ladies aren’t like his former intended, who wed his brother while Nick was on crusade. But he can’t open his heart to Lady Clare. She’s bound to another, and Nick won’t forfeit his honor. Even if she were free, he has nothing to offer but love, and this lady deserves everything.
If in the life the coup are lack of common requirements, mutual understanding and respect, it will hurt each other’s feelings, and even make the other side lose interest, in severe cases can cause sexual dysfunction and lead to the breakdown of a relationship or ruin your marriage. cialis tadalafil uk The reason why there is no difference in the visualization power to see to it that you have the pill only with water and if at all you try consuming it with other food items cheapest price for tadalafil then you should opt for only those pills that do not contain fats or oil inside it.

Lady Clare’s dying grandfather has arranged her betrothal, but the arrival of the man she’s to wed sends her fleeing into a snowstorm. Injured when her horse stumbles, she’s rescued by a mysterious knight. She recovers at his run-down manor, safe at last—until her betrothed tracks her down just days before Christmas. Trapped at home with the wedding imminent, she longs for the winter knight she’s come to love.

Only a miracle can bring Clare and Nick together. But at Christmas, anything is possible.

This is just a sweet story of a love that can transform a person. It’s part of a series, but can definitely be read as a standalone (though I would like to go back and read the first book in the series. I’m assuming it’s his friend’s story).

The characters are well drawn for such a short work (less than 150 pages and, if I had had the time I could have easily read it in one sitting). My favorite character, besides Nicholas and Clare, is Tom… what a wonderful character. I would love to see him get his own story..maybe a coming of age tale?

And, what can I say about Nicholas and Clare.. I fell in love with them both. I loved how the title aptly describes not only the season, but also Nicholas himself. His heart was certainly frozen due to being hurt previously.

If you are looking for a sweet romantic tale of two people finding each other, give this one a shot. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more of this author’s works.

    What was your favorite part of your writing process?

    • Barbara Bettiis says

      Hi Bernie. I think one of my favorite parts is seeing the characters come alive. I love developing their personalities. Thank you for asking 🙂

    Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and, if so, how do you overcome it?

    • Barbara Bettiis says

      Oh, yes, Peggy, I run into periods in the story when I seem to hit a blank wall. Sometimes I read (outside the genre) or do things with friends. My go-to activity, though, is driving. I’ve often found that as I drive, the story winds out in front of me and the problem clears up. It has to be on a non-busy highway, though. Certainly not the stop and go of packed city traffic 🙂
