As the snows fall and hearths burn, four stories of Midwinter beginnings prove that love can fight its way through the chillest night...

THE DARKEST MIDNIGHT, by Grace Draven
The mark Jahna Ulfrida was born with has made her a target of the cruel and idle all her life. During the long, crowded festivities of Deyalda, there’s nowhere to escape. Until a handsome stranger promises to teach her to save herself…

THE CHOSEN, by Thea Harrison
In her visions, Lily sees two men fighting for her tiny country’s allegiance: the wolf and the tiger, each deadly, each cunning. One will bring Ys chaos and death, one a gentler path—but she’s destined to love whichever she chooses. The midwinter Masque is upon them, and the wolf is at her door…

THE STORM, by Elizabeth Hunter
When her soul mate died in a massacre of the half-angelic Irin people, Renata thought she’d never feel happiness again. She’s retreated to the snowy Dolomites to remember her hurts—until determined, irrepressible Maxim arrives to insist on joy, too. And before she can throw him out, they discover a secret the Irin have to know…

THE SNOWS OF WINDROVEN, by Jeffe Kennedy
As a blizzard threatens their mountain keep, the new Queen Amelia of the Twelve Kingdoms and her unofficial consort Ash face their own storm. Ash knows a scarred, jumpy ex-convict isn’t the companion his queen needs. But when a surprise attack confines them together in their isolated sanctuary, the feast of midwinter might tempt even Ash into childlike hope…

Anthologies aren’t usual my thing but there is always an exception to the rule and here is where it applies.
I have a lack of time at the moment so this is going to be quick. I have to date not had the opportunity to read anything by Grace Draven or Jeffe Kennedy so I can’t rate the stories that I have written. I have heard some really good things about them but I’m just lacking time. I have read Thea Harrison and I love her work yet again it is a matter of time.

The Storm by Ms. Hunter is another great addition to her Irin Chronicles series and although a novella it most certainly does pack a punch. I can only recommend reading the series as this can’t be read as a standalone. There is so much depth and history here that it is worth it.

Here it is Max and Renata’s story and what a story they have. They’re love, avoidance and hate spans over a very long time. But Max is persistent that he has followed Renata wherever she goes. This time it’s no different.

They have both encountered loss and each has dealt with it differently but after such a long time it is time to heal. To face fears to move on. Not an easy feat especially for these two. Ms. Hunter grips me with her storytelling every single time. I felt all the emotions that our MC have experienced and savor this author’s writing so much. Since the beginning of all of her paranormal romance it has been a true pleasure.
