It was supposed to be a vacation, a time to save her marriage, but what Joan Clayton hadn’t counted on was Murphy’s Law of Vail Mountain and the secrets that had damaged her marriage beyond repair. It was over. Depressed and angry, she decided to venture directly into an oncoming snowstorm, one that would be known as the blizzard of the century.
Stephen Brockheart received the call concerning a missing tourist after working 26 hours straight. A park ranger for the mountain resort, he set out on the routine mission, knowing he was running out of time as the blizzard hit with visibility zero. What he hadn’t counted on was saving a beautiful woman and falling for her, a city girl who knew nothing about the dangers of the mountain. He had been there before and vowed never to return.
As Mother Nature raged, Joan was soon overcome by the feelings a complete stranger evoked in her, causing her to reevaluate her own life. Through the blizzard and stranded at the resort, death was imminent for any who would try to leave. Despite loss and secrets, can two people find love and happiness again?
Can they be given a second chance to make it real and lasting, or will that chance die with them?

Light the fire, grab the cocoa, and get ready for a great read!Stranded on Vail Mountain is a well-written, gripping, fast-paced novella. I love short reads, especially those which grab the reader by the seat of the pants from the first line to the last – this one delivers! I’ve read this story twice and will read it again. This was my first read of this author’s works. I look forward to reading much more from her. I don’t write reviews often, but some stories are too good not to share.

Cozy Romance On The Mountains

By Kris

This is my 1st time reading anything by Desiree L. Scott and I have to say for novella this for sure made a great impression. This is a very cute cozy romance of the mountains, and I just love the cover. This book truly does pull a lot of emotions all in a short amount of time. It has it all from love to betrayal.
We have Joan and Michael who are making a last-ditch attempt to save their marriage so to speak and let’s just say that doesn’t go as planned at all. Of course, there are two other vital characters in this novella, but since it’s so short you can give it a read yourself ; ) Lots of twists and turns in this cozy romance based in the mountains and LOTS of snow!
Would highly recommend for those wanting a cozy feel-good quick read romance that is pretty clean in itself and loves snow or at least reading about it LOL.
Bonus points for using my favorite word “Indeed” in it!

Riveting!

This is a compelling story of abuse, rebirth, and emergence. The story carries you along teasing you with the promise of details. You eagerly push forward anxious to learn more. The author does not disappoint and you are gratified. When the story ends you are satisfied, but still want more. I’m keeping this review short because I’m in a hurry to start book 2!

Never A Dull Moment!

Love it! Samantha Jacobey continues to amaze me. She’s written a character who keeps me on the edge of my seat book after book and wondering what kind of trouble Tori will get herself into next.
How can a reader not cheer for a heroine who has been through so much? I am absolutely dreading the end of this series!

Keeps Getting More Interesting!
I love this series. Why more people haven’t discovered this gem is beyond me. Just when you think you’ve got it figured out, you realize that the only thing you know is that you don’t know anything at all. The suspense is killing me! Non-stop action. Plot twists. Hot sex. What’s not to love?
Tori returns to her darker, diabolical alter-ego in this installment. If she didn’t seem to fall in love so frequently, I’d really think she was a sociopath incapable of feelings for others. While she seems to fall in love with numerous men, moving from one to the next without any break in between them, it seems to work for her character. Usually, this would be extremely off-putting for me and I’d quickly grow tired of the fickleness, giving up on the series. In this case, it just works and her feelings for each of these men feels genuine.
Maybe when the mystery is solved and this series has come to a close, Ms. Jacobey can do some sort of polygamist story where Tori gets to keep ALL of her men! I’m thinking it would be a nice change-up for the usual chauvinistic male-dominant polygamy storylines. Tori’s such a badass it would be believable. I’m thinking something reminiscent of HBO’s ‘Big Love’. Seriously, it would be awesome! Just think about it Ms. Jacobey. LOL. 😉

Well written

I really enjoyed this novella. It was fast-paced and had some surprises I sure didn’t see coming. Even though it was a shorter book than I normally read, I was impressed with the entire storyline. I look forward to the next two in this series.
