This was my first shape shifter story. Well, unless you count Twilight, but this was definitely my first mountain lion shifter story.
When Aspyn's estranged father passes away, she's left to deal with his estate. But, when a snow storm hits, she has to deal with more than legalities. She finds herself stuck with a pretty hot man and her father's journal. When she first encounters Damon, he's naked and coming in from the storm. Strange, but hot. He encourages her to read the beginning of the journal.
Aspyn has no interest in the father who abandoned her and could care less what that journal has to say, but she reads it anyway and with each page she becomes more intrigued by what she learns. Once she lets the secrets of the pages sink in, Damon has some explaining to do.
This story was short and sweet. It clocks in at a little under 8k. If you're like me and some nights you just don't have the energy to read a full-blown novel, Snowy Fate is a perfect choice. I snuggled up under the electric throw and read it in one sitting. Its a smooth read and flows at a nice pace.
Ms. Dobson sets up the conflict between the two characters from the onset, but gives the reader the resolution the characters need by the books end. I felt Aspyn's pain and abandonment issues right off the bat. I could also identify with Damon's desire to fill the lonely void in his life. I was thrilled when these two found one another.
Snowy Fate is a cozy read for a cold winter night.
