Roy has a crush on Steve, so when a work-related ski weekend is offered, Roy jumps at the chance to finally lay a trap for his hunky coworker. An abandoned cabin nearby is perfect for his scheme, and Roy stocks it with champagne, rubbers, and lube. But fate intervenes, and it’s not Steve, but Ranger Josh, who ends up trapped in the cabin with Roy during an avalanche. Roy’s plan might be ruined, but there’s still a chance for a very happy New Year indeed.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.
This was a very quick read (only 25 pages) but the author was able to draw me into the story immediately. I enjoyed this book and loved the ending. I think I fell a little in love with Roy myself. It was absolutely cute the way he tried to trap Steve but got Josh instead. I will defiantly look for more books by this author.
