As snow flies across Ember Peak, Jones and Tru are making their own kind of warmth, but a family secret could send a chill over their future plans.

Jones Hudson is ending the year the right way. He’s taking his sexy fiancé and his sweet dog on a fun road-trip to visit his mom’s new family. He’s found a groove with new friends at Ember Peak Ranch and his job at a local diner. And, best of all, he’s regularly basking in the flame-hot love of Tru Larkin.

But things go unexpectedly wrong when Jones uncovers news that may change life at Ember Peak forever. And when the secret detonates, the after-burn is more painful than he or Tru could have imagined.

Tru knows it might be too late to save the season, but he’s determined to move forward with his planned surprise for Jones. When a blizzard knocks out power at Ember Peak, he’s forced to rethink his ideas on giving and forgiving. Maybe it’s the gift of a simple vow that will burn brightest on a dark, starless night.

This will now go officially to my “favorite series” shelf.

This book is not a standalone. It is the continuation of Tru and Jones’ story from Book 1, and I highly recommend that book, so hop to it!

Tru and Jones are getting used to a committed relationship with each other. There is a lot of feeling each other out, trying to read each other’s minds, trying not to rock the boat, trying to pick their battles, etc. All the joys and learning when you are now in long-term relationship with your best friend. And you’re not QUITE secure just yet. What if all disappears before you can blink? It’s new for them, and I totally understood the reasons behind their actions.

The simplicity of the story was stunning. It’s just Jones and Tru navigating each other. I love when a book is all about the relationship without ten different side plots.

Honestly, it would’ve been 5 stars if not for Sandy. She worked my last nerve. I tried to put myself in her shoes, but she’s too flighty and selfish. I just can’t with her. And I’m tired of Tru and Jones enabling and coddling her.

Danford delivers with a steamy continuation of a fantastic love story. And she is a helluva writer. She just cranks my chain, what can I say? Check, check, check.

If you haven’t read the first in this series, Tru Smoke, yet, what are you waiting for? You won’t be disappointed!
