Fate always knows when you're ready for love.
The past is catching up with Aspyn Layton. The father she never knew passed away and she is left to deal with his estate. An unexpected snowstorm has her stranded at the one place she didn’t want to be—her father’s house—with a naked man.
Damon Andrews has a secret, one he shared with Aspyn’s father. He must convince Aspyn there is more to life than what she knows. How will she react when she finds out he is a mountain lion, and she is his mate? Their fates are intertwined.
A short, interesting story of a young woman that has yet to understand who she really is, why her father left her and her mother when she was a little girl and why he stood away for as long as he did. She’s always thought it was her fault he left them and ended up growing to hate him because of it. Not seeing or hearing anything from or about him until his death, she’s now finding out many truths that seem unreal to her and just wants to leave the house her father has left for her in his will. But she's stuck because of a heavy snow storm.
Damon is a shifter, a mountain lion to be exact. He is aware of Aspyn and he knows a lot about her. He also has to share his secret with her as we all the fact that they are mates and he wants to help her through her hard time, protect her and be everything she wants in a man (mate).
Together they work out all of the truths about her father, herself and Damon’s secret. After all, you cannot mess with fate!
I enjoyed the story and I know it’s a short story but I felt as though it was incomplete. It went by way too fast and did not contain enough background information and character descriptions on both Damon and Aspyn for me to truly get into. I have read a couple of other works from Marissa Dobson and know she’s wonderfully capable of a completely satisfying short, paranormal or not.
Anyone looking for a quick paranormal read and does not need more background information will fully enjoy Snowy Fate :)
