:: Unedited teaser ::
A branch fell in front of me with a crack as loud as starter’s gun. I yelped, pulled from the past instantly. Fear lodged in my throat as my heart thudded loudly against my ribs.
“Fuck,” I panted, shaking free of the spell of all those memories. I looked from the rotted limb down the dark lane. If I just kept moving the bend in the road would be soon. I moved on, the ache in my shoulder growing with each step. A pine tree lay across the road at the bend. I climbed over it, the exertion making my shoulder scream. I could feel the blood wetting my shirt.
God I was stupid. Stupid Kyle. Stupid moose. Stupid storm. I should have just stayed in Boston like Austin had advised but no, I had to bull ahead. Bull. Ha. Yeah, moose. Bull. Rocky. It all goes together Maybe it’s a short Russian guy named Boris lurking around in my dreams. That’s funny shit.
Not really. Stop giggling and keep moving.
I wondered how long it took for delirium to set in after a car wreck and a stroll through a blizzard. Not long I bet. That stupid Bullwinkle crack was a sure sign I walking a fine line between calm and panic.
A second chance at love is all Kyle wants for Christmas, but a dark menace from his past wants him dead, and love is second to staying alive.
Kyle Lourenco has carved out a comfortable life and career for himself in Boston. With the holidays quickly approaching, he’s heading home for the first time in several years. Home to his loving parents and the small Canadian town where he was raised. And home to Christian, his best friend and the first man to steal his heart.
Just as a winter storm begins to blow in, it forces Kyle off the road only miles from home and a dark and sinister force from his past creeps ever closer. His only hope is getting to Christian’s cabin before the evil that has haunted him for years finally catches up to him.
Best friends since they were three, Christian Gauthier grew up next door to Kyle, in a remote mountain town with one stoplight and a forty-mile round trip to the nearest school. When Kyle left town for a shot at a professional hockey career, he took Christian’s heart with him. Even though he knew Kyle was always destined for bigger things, it hadn’t stopped Christian from falling for him as soon as he knew what love was.
With Christmas coming soon and a major snowstorm heading their way, Christian shuts the doors to the family store and heads to his cabin, where he will be on standby as an official volunteer for Search and Rescue. He has never regretted staying in Eagle Ridge, but a near miss on a simple rescue leads him to reevaluate everything, and when Kyle ends up at his door, he knows that guarding his heart might not be the best solution after all.More info →
