Snowstorm Romance ~ Jean C. Gordon

Yesterday, while I sat all cozy next to the wood stove in our living room, waiting for our very late first snowstorm of the winter to start and looking for a topic for today's blog, "Snowstorm romance" popped into my head. So, wondering how popular that particular romance trope is, I Googled it. Very popular, it turns out. The first link that appeared in my search was to Good Reads and a Listopedia lineup of 159 romances in which the hero and heroine are snowbound or a snowstorm plays a significant part in the story.

When that list didn't seem to include any books by sweet romance authors that I read, I decided to check the Sweet Romance Reads blog authors. Googling each of them, I found that four of them definitely have "snow" books: Lyn Cote, Josie Riviera, Roxanne Rustand, and Cheryl St. John definitely do. If any of the other Sweet Romance Reads bloggers do have snowstorm romances, please let our readers know in the comments.

And just when I was about to type that I don't, I remembered I do: Trusting His Kiss, the novella that kicks off my Paradox Lake series. How about you? Do you like "snow" stories?


Life is complicated for nurse and widowed mother of three, Kari Hazard. Her 15-year-old son Myles is rebelling, and she's unsure how to handle it. Still, Kari is not immediately thrilled with the actions Myles’s handsome new school guidance counselor is taking.
Eli Evans is a former Air Force officer and can relate to Myles’s feelings regarding his father, who was killed in Afghanistan. Eli also finds Kari extremely attractive, but an issue from his past could pose a problem for any prospective relationship.  However, an even larger obstacle is Kari’s residual anger and complicated emotions toward the military and her late husband.
In the small town of Paradox Lake, fate (with a little help from Eli’s mother) keeps pushing them together. Can Kari and Eli leave the past behind them and find a way forward to new love?
