Great start to a new series

I have read all of this author's books in the Willow Creek series and all of them were terrific.

But I believe this book tops all of them.

Gideon saves a woman in the middle of nowhere, stranded in wagon in the winter. A woman who had no experience in wilderness survival.

He hears her screams and saves her. The longer he is with Victoria, the more he desires her.

But will she still want to be with him if she knew of his shameful
past? And can she love him enough to abandon

Loved It

Once I started the book, couldn't put it down. Was so afraid Gideon was gonna let her get away. Enjoyed it to the very end.

Loved it!

First book I've read by the writer & I'm eager for more! The plot is exciting & has action enough to keep you reading. The H & h do go back & forth in their pursuit of each other's affections. The minor characters are interesting. The dastardly villains are hateful. There are a few steamy scenes appropriate to the plot. Well written.

The storyline may be fine eventually (sometimes boring and repetitive), but grammar is shamefully poor!!! You'll find you're father instead of your father, she's been beat instead of she's been beaten, and many many other unforgivable mistakes (too many!) ...more

Yummy Romance

Victoria Stanford is stranded in snowy Montana when her husband dies. Luckily she is rescued by the sexy Gideon. Gideon has his own heart breaking story to keep you riveted .

Great book and I look forward to reading the next in the series.

The libidos of two injured people defied reality. Within a few hours of a life threatening injury, the hero was only feeling turned on by the heroine. Give me a break. Add to that a weak semi hysterical flower suddenly becomes She-ra pulling the hero to safety while carrying two packs. Incredible. This caused me to abandon the book. Finally went back to read the ending thinking I might give this a chance. No spoilers but the end did not compensate.

Characteristic Grayson

Having read Willow Creek, Silver Falls has all the same enjoyment & endearing characters Grayson has created. Only complaint is the grammatical errors. Many times a preposition was missing, the tense switched, and one paragraph was written in first POV instead of third. These really distracted from the plot. A good editorial cleanup would change this to a 4 star review (withholding the 5 because some of Willow Creek is better).

This book started out exciting and captured you right away. The setting is in beautiful, rugged Montana during the rough winter time on the side of a mountain..... Then it started to become too explicit and ruined it for me - I quit reading it. That is unfortunate because it could have been a good read otherwise.

I did give it a 3 star only because I enjoyed the setting in Montana. It could have been so good if it was kept “cleaner” it’s to bad.

Victoria ran away to marry her Thomas; big mistake. She was young and seeking adventure, she made a bad choice. When Gideon Hart came into her life, she was a widow, being beaten by brutal men and needing help. I enjoyed this story and the way the author described the mountain, visualized the waterfalls and talked about life in an old cabin. Thanks for a wonderful tale.

Stranded on a mountain side, and nearly beaten, Gideon rescues Victoria. For days they walk to his secluded cabin and when disaster after disaster recalls them and his unwillingness to share his last gets in the way, it seems that all is forsaken.

I say here and read it in one sitting. I enjoyed the dynamic between them, and the suspense kept it just right. Nothing too far fetched, wonderfully written.

Good romance read.

A Soft Kiss In Winter is a beautiful written treasure. The landscape descriptions, and character development, was spot on. I cannot wait for the next instalment.
