Forever Winter

After two disastrous London seasons, Susanna Lorican received a marriage proposal from a neighborhood friend, an esteemed Viscount, which saved her family from society gossip. She had adored him since childhood but never expected the man of her dreams to reciprocate the feelings. Susanna soon planned the perfect Christmas Eve wedding but never expected a snowstorm to barrel through the English countryside on the morning of the nuptials.
Viscount Camden Beckinworth had lived the life of a devil-may-care rake until his parents’ premature death five years earlier. Returning home to save the crumbling family business, he cast aside his personal life and buried himself in his parents’ finances, focusing on nothing but honoring his family name. Once he decided that it was time to take a wife, now that the business thrived, he finally realized that the annoying little sister of his two best childhood friends had grown into a lovely woman. Needing her by his side, he pledged to take the headstrong miss as his wife.

Susanna and Camden vowed to let nothing thwart their long-awaited day, even though icy roads delayed the dress and several guests. But when the reverend fell from his horse and injured his head, they had little choice but to postpone. To worsen matters, Susanna’s insufferable brother-in-law cornered and then assaulted her in the library.

Despite their trials and tribulations, the young couple never wavered from their goal: marriage and a long life together. After all, happily ever after came only once in a lifetime.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great little Historial romance. It's nice to see a family willing to go along with marriage for love, and not title. There was drama and sweetness. The only thing I didn't like, is that it was so short. I think with some development, the author could build on the turmoil and drama that's already there, and turn it into a full length novel. Not that it takes away from the read. If you want a quick happy story to read on your lunch break, pick this up.

  About the Author

So… you want a little information about me? Hmmm, what to say? There’s just so much but let’s start with the basics.
Books to Go Now published my first novella, Forever Winter, in March 2013. As a debut author, I find that promoting is more time-consuming than actually writing. Several author friends have shared that knowledge with me before but I never really understood what they meant until recently.
My mind is a wonderland of romance, laughter and really awesome ways of kicking a guy when he’s down. Writing is my passion and I probably wouldn’t be too sane without it. After all, what’s a girl to do when there are people jabbering away in her head and there’s no way to shut them up? Write! That’s the only answer I found that works.
I live in the lovely foothills of North Carolina with my supportive husband and five adorable little kitties! I work in retail but I’d love to write full-time someday. My hobbies include hiking, gardening, reading (of course!), scrapbooking, and watching movies or TV shows.
I love hearing from readers. Feel free to drop me a line!
