SUMMARY
Ranger Cooper Heywood is on duty at Rocky Mountain National Park during Christmas. Alejandro Velez is an accomplished photographer. What Alejandro didn't plan on is the instant desire he feels for Cooper… and what is that odd golden shimmer?

Ranger Cooper Heywood is on duty at the Rocky Mountain National Park during Christmas. It's not a busy time of year, but there are some people he has to watch over including a photographer. In his experience photographers are a problem, but Cooper finds himself attracted to the handsome Latino who sets his blood on fire.

Alejandro Velez is an accomplished photographer with several coffee table books to his credit. He's there to photograph the wintry landscape for his newest book. What he didn't plan on is the instant desire he feels for Cooper who he always sees surrounded by an odd, golden shimmer. Alejandro doesn't know what it means, but something tells him he's going to find out.

NOTE from author: I have a book coming out through Silver Publishing on November 24th, its the 'reimagined' version of the book formerly called Let it Snow which is now called Rocky Mountain Christmas . It's now a light paranormal story--no bad guys but lots of fun with magic, ghosts and psychic powers--and I feel the story is much stronger for the addition of those elements.

A winter blizzard storm brings two magical men together in the snowy mountains of Colorado.

In ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHRISTMAS, Cooper and Alejandro's initial meeting gets off to a very rocky start. Cooper is a ranger in the Rockies and he's been burned by crazy photographers unprepared for the wintery weather. Armed with the information that Alejandro is from Florida, Cooper is irritable and condescending when he first checks up on him.

Cooper's attitude quickly turns around as it is apparent Alejandro is more than capable of taking care of himself. In addition, his photographs are awe inspiring. Alejandro finds the sexy Cooper to be too abrasive which is a shame. Cooper does his best to overcome his negative first impression since he is very attracted to a Latino man.

The sex in this story is sexy and slightly kinky. It's mentioned several times Cooper loves a Latino Dom. Other than pitching, Alejandro doesn't exhibit much Dom behaviour. Sure, he likes to call Cooper "boy", but there isn't any D/s, BD or SM involved. Now if the sexy scenes for the two snowbound men involved a bit of tying up, spanking and orgasm denial, then it would certainly kick up the kink. As it was presented, I categorize this tale as SugarKink.

The plot of the story is straightforward and simplistic. It's sweet and the switching between the points of view gives the reader insight to both characters. Both men are regular people with an added magical oomph. The witchery and precognitive abilities gave this story an added twist which is needed in order for the story to work. It helped make the story more enjoyable.

This wintery Christmas story is recommended for m/m romance lovers who enjoy a steamy snowbound sexfest.
