Title: A Fortunate Blizzard
There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.
Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.
Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.
When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.

A few days before Christmas Trevor receives an update on his medical condition. It’s not good news. It’s the beginning of when he will have to start making some final decisions and getting his affairs in order. His mother wants what every parent wants, for her children to outlive her. Trevor knows his life has been far too short but he he lives it to the fullest. He knows what it is like to have a good life. He’s never taken for granted a single day he has yet he also knows the cold lonely feeling of not have much time left.
Goal oriented to the point that success has become an obsession Marc doesn’t do anything for himself. He takes work home with him and even goes into the office on his off days. He sees his success at the law firm as his only goal in life. He wasn’t always this way though. Before his family threw him away he had hopes and dreams and aspirations that were all his own. Now he goes through each day trying to prove something to a family that doesn’t even acknowledge him.
A Fortunate Blizzard indeed. The title and cover are so very perfect for the tale that L.C. Chase has given her readers. I enjoyed so much of this book. Trevor who’s life has a very short expiration date and Marc who is whole and healthy and completely missing out on all that life has to offer. It’s an amazing story, something you should definitely add to your buy list.
