A new power is at work in the Twelve Kingdoms, unbalancing the fragile peace. For the High Queen and her sisters, it might mean a new alliance—or the end of the love of a lifetime…As a howling blizzard batters the mountain keep of Windroven, Ami, Queen of Avonlidgh, and her unofficial consort Ash face their own storm. Their passion saved them from despair, but Ash knows a scarred, jumpy ex-convict isn’t the companion his queen needs. He’s been bracing himself for the end since their liaison began. When it finally comes, the shattering of his heart is almost a relief.With a man haunted by nightmares and silent as stone, Ami knows only that Ash’s wounds are his own to hide or reveal. She can’t command trust. But just as they are moving apart, a vicious attack confines them together, snowbound and isolated with an ancient force awakening within Windroven itself. If they truly mean to break their bond, Ami and Ash must first burn through a midwinter that will test every instinct—and bring temptation all too near…
The Snows of Windroven is part of the Amid the Winter Snow anthology and was by far my favorite addition to that collection.
Ami has been the most surprising character in the Twelve Kingdoms. She is the pampered princess, the one that on the surface you don’t think is interesting or could easily hate. But she is funny, she is able to look at herself and see how stupid and shallow things are, and she hides a clever and strong mind.
Though is a short, you get to see Ami and Ash’s relationship progress. And they do get their HEA. It is a perfect short story.
