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.

Okay so this is a reread but I noticed I haven’t reviewed this book yet. I love reading Laura Kaye’s books. I mean she just writes amazing stories. I’ve been in such a book slump that I just had to reread some of my favorite series. Anyway I enjoyed North of Need so much so that I read it in one sitting position. This is one quick read. It had all the things I love from swoony worthy men, to sexy time and don’t forget all that sweetness.

Now Megan has a hard time in life because the love of her life died in an accident and she is fining it a hard time to move on. Now her husband John wanted her to be happy so he went to the gods to ask for some help so she can be happy again. Boreas called his adopted son back from where ever he was and he listened to what John had to say. He said he’ll help her find happiness because he will find his happiness with her. Owen has also had a hard love life with the person he was supposed to marry who cheated on him so he wants some happiness in his life. Now the deal for Owen to find happiness is if Megan wants him, needs him and loves him. If she fully loves him he will become mortal. Megan was scared to open herself for Owen but he somehow got around all her defences.

Owen is a snow god so he won’t survive in the heat. Now he only has a short while to get Megan to fall for him before the heat comes to them.  Otherwise it will kill him. This story was full of emotion I mean you will notice all the emotions with Megan where she is so afraid to open up to Owen fully that she nearly loses him completely. He nearly died in the end but thankfully Boreas got him to the healing river where he heals but Owen still did not know that Megan loved him. When he went back to her right after he healed thinking he should just say goodbye because she did not want him…. But what he found when he went back was something far better than he ever hoped for.

I really loved this book and like I said this is already a reread for me. I liked that this is a twist in the mythology of the story and it was this time not of the Greek gods but actually of the wind and weather gods. I also fell in love with the cover but anyway you should make time and read this as soon as possible.
