Here’s another favorite romantic trope: two strangers stranded together because of an unavoidable chance. It could be a shipwreck, plane crash, flood or—in this case—a snowstorm. Hunter is on his way back to work. Chey is starting a whole new life now that she’s ditched her awful boyfriend and would-be husband. So when these two share a room, matters predictably heat up between them and they engage in a passionate fling.

Of course, the attraction goes deeper than mere physical chemistry. Neither of them can stop thinking about the other when they’re apart. But they’re both grown people and not about to mope over their separation.

Romantic trope #2: They both think this is a one-time attraction and neither will see the other again. Then they do! Ah, the deus ex machina that is the scheming author. Chey and Hunter both turn up in the same classroom—he as a temporary teacher, she as a student. It doesn’t matter what the curricula are; we know this has the potential to turn sour.

Romantic trope #3: They know it’s a bad idea for a teacher/student relationship; modern society frowns heavily on such things. (Come to think of it, it wasn’t too popular in days of yore, either.) So they’re going to go at it hot and heavy behind closed doors, aren’t they?

But here the author defies tradition. Chey and Hunter are mature adults not randy adolescents. The story proceeds with each of them behaving accordingly. It’s a most satisfying read, without the foolish behavior you might find in other stories of this ilk. Love with responsibility—there’s nothing wrong with that; I could wish that other romance authors would take this route.

Where the book fails is in some of the language the author uses. I can’t take it seriously when she substitutes “kitten” for “pussy” or “jewel” for “dick”. She also uses the phrase “stretch his/her eyes” when she wants to indicate wonder or surprise or “taper his/her eyes” for suspicion or hostility. I know this is an idiosyncratic method she’s adopted but it doesn’t sit right. It jolts me right out of the intended mood to read such things and makes me grimace or laugh when such emotions are just inappropriate.

All in all, I think this is a fine romance that could have been improved with a bit of word editing.
