North of Need By Laura Kaye

Her tears called a powerful snow god to life, but only her love can grant the humanity he craves…

Desperate to escape agonizing memories of Christmas past, twenty-nine-year-old widow Megan Snow builds a snow family outside the mountain cabin she once shared with her husband, realizing too late that she’s recreated the very thing she’ll never have.

Called to life by Megan’s tears, snow god Owen Winters appears unconscious on her doorstep in the midst of a raging blizzard. As she nurses him to health, Owen finds unexpected solace in her company and unimagined pleasure in the warmth of her body, and vows to win her heart for a chance at humanity.

Megan is drawn to Owen’s mismatched eyes, otherworldly masculinity, and enthusiasm for the littlest things. But this Christmas miracle comes with an expiration—before the snow melts and the temperature rises, Megan must let go of her widow’s grief and learn to trust love again, or she’ll lose Owen forever.

Grace's Review:

 Laura Kaye starts the Heart of the Anemoi series with a bang in the first book, North of Need! This story has everything for the paranormal/fantasy romance reader! It is emotional and a little suspenseful with a healthy dose of Greek mythology.

 The whirlwind romance between Megan, a grieving widow, and Owen, a snow god, is playful, heartwarming and STEAMY!!! It's magical because Owen uses some of his powers to creatively open Megan's heart to love again.

 Ms. Kaye always shines in her descriptions of the sights of the setting she creates in the story, which is one of the reasons why I enjoy reading her work. The snow, the cabin, the surrounding area are all described beautifully and left me wanting to rent a cabin up in the snowy mountains for the holidays! Her heroes are always well written. Owen is incredibly sweet, and let me just say that I never knew a snowman could be so sexy! I'm very much looking forward to the next book in this series.
