Description: Aiden, a traumatized and wounded doctor, tries to resist his attraction to, Liya, the much younger receptionist at his clinic. But when they both end up at his cabin for the holidays, even the snow can’t stop them from heating up the winter nights.

The Good: Ms. Hunt has a weird way of making me like situations that I don’t normally like. For example, I didn’t think her mute cowboy romance, LOVE UNSPOKEN, would be quite to my taste (I only read it on the strength of an excerpt she posted on another IR site), but it was one of my favorite romances of the year. And, I’ve never been a fan of May/December romances but I really loved this one. It was like watching Dr. House fall in love, even though he was super-resistant to it. Also, unlike many novellas, C&F was a well-developed and satisfying read.

The Bad: The doctor’s injured leg was often referenced — but then kind of got dropped during the sex scenes. This is a very small quibble, though, because those scenes were H.O.T.

The Naughty: Erotic heat level. Faint dom/sub.

Editing issues: Minor. I counted 5 typos.
