The Book: Cloudburst Ice Magic
The Author: Siobhan Muir
The Story: Avalanches may bring down more than snow…
Working for the Search and Rescue team at the Cloudburst Resort in Colorado, Lily Sinclair figures she’ll do all the rescuing from now on. When hikers are caught in a spring blizzard, Lily and her partner head into the storm. Cut off from communication and facing deadly conditions, Lily fears she’ll never see her Ice Demon lover before death claims them.
Zach Snow encouraged Lily move to Cloudburst to grow and learn, but missed her every day of their months apart. His plans of moving to Colorado get pushed up when he receives her text explaining her situation, and saying goodbye. He must negotiate with the local Ice Demon clan to work in their territory to rescue Lily and the hikers before the Spring Fling blizzard kills them. But he’s running out of time.
Between the amorous hiker hitting on Zach, Lily’s self-doubts, and an avalanche bearing down on them, Zach and Lily must rediscover the love they first kindled in a Christmas ice cave, and create their own Cloudburst ice magic.

Review by Natascha:
Lily Sinclair has officially been rated one of my favorite heroines in romance. She’s down to earth. She knows exactly who she is and what she wants, and she’s not afraid to climb a mountain threatened by an avalanche to get it.
Siobhan Muir’s heroines influence my own character creation. None of them are doormats, which I love.
Zach Snow is an Ice Demon. I’ve never read about Ice Demons before so I was instantly drawn to him and his culture, especially the way the Ice Demons seem to resemble Native American tribes. They ask permission to cross borders, their elders are revered and respected, and they love unconditionally. How could you not fall for a man like that?
Great read. Recommend.
