Author Name & Publisher: Therese Woodson (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: December 9th 2015- 68 pages
As a paramedic, Ryan Bishop has responded to his fair share of bizarre situations. However, he’s not prepared when he meets Phillip, a local man who keeps popping up to save the day. Everyone lauds Phillip as a hero, but he prefers to stay in the background, going so far as to refuse medical treatment.
Ryan is intrigued, not only by Phillip’s unassuming manner, but also by his ability to be in the right place at the right time. Ryan wants some answers and maybe even a date. What he gets is an unexpected part in Phillip’s origin story.
This is only the second book I’ve read from this author and the first was a short story from Dreamspinners Advent Calendar series. This time I was able to fully evaluate this author’s storytelling and I really enjoyed it. This book had a bit of fantasy in it and those are the type of stories I don’t normally read. This book however was really good. The fantasy was in the back ground and the love that developed was the main part of the story. I immediately connected with Ryan and Phillip and was glad to be able to follow the romance between the two men. I will definitely be looking at more books from this author.
