Warm Heart by Amy Lane

Survive the adventure. Live to love.

Following a family emergency, snowboarder Tevyn Moore and financier Mallory Armstrong leave Donner Pass in a blizzard… and barely survive the helicopter crash that follows. Stranded with few supplies and no shelter, Tevyn and Mallory—and their injured pilot—are forced to rely on each other.

The mountain leaves no room for evasion, and Tevyn and Mal must confront the feelings that have been brewing between them for the past five years. Mallory has seen Tevyn through injury and victory. Can Tevyn see that Mallory's love is real?

Mallory’s job is risk assessment. Tevyn's job is full-on risk. But to stay alive, Mallory needs to take some gambles and Tevyn needs to have faith in someone besides himself. Can the bond they discover on the mountain see them to rescue and beyond?

This is Amy Lane at her best. The exciting story of an Olympic snowboarder attempting to survive a helicopter crash in a blizzard is also an intense romance. After the crash, Tevyn finds himself stranded with his financial manager Mallory and their injured pilot. As Mallory and Tevyn work together to survive the storm, they are both forced to acknowledge the feelings they’ve had for each other for a very long time.

I always love Amy Lane’s new adult characters best and snowboarder Tevyn is one of my all-time favourites. The Olympic medallist is talented – and he knows it. He’s fearless and sexy but he’s also smarter than he seems. Mallory has taken care of Tevyn’s finances since he first started riding competitively as a teenager and Tevyn’s trust and admiration for the older man has slowly become something more. Mallory is older and more conventional. He works with money and he’s happiest when he sees the people and projects he funds doing well. Over time, Tevyn has become more to Mallory than a simple investment but Mallory doubts the beautiful young athlete could ever feel the same about him.

I love that there is very little relationship angst in this story. Tevyn and Mallory work together to survive the harsh winter storm and the forced intimacy of the situation brings them closer and makes them both reevaluate their lives, their futures, and the connection that simmers between them. Despite the slightly fantastic situation, this story feels real and the characters are wonderfully complicated and relatable. I love the humour and sense of play between Tevyn and Mallory, even when their situation starts to deteriorate further.

I loved pretty much everything about this book, and I can't wait for the next one in the series.

AMY LANE is a mother of two college students, two grade-schoolers, and two small dogs. She is also a compulsive knitter who writes because she can’t silence the voices in her head. She adores fur-babies, knitting socks, and hawt menz, and she dislikes moths, cat boxes, and knuckle-headed macspazzmatrons. She is rarely found cooking, cleaning, or doing domestic chores, but she has been known to knit up an emergency hat/blanket/pair of socks for any occasion whatsoever, or sometimes for no reason at all. Her award-winning writing has three flavors: twisty-purple alternative universe, angsty-orange contemporary, and sunshine-yellow happy. By necessity, she has learned to type like the wind. She’s been married for twenty-plus years to her beloved Mate and still believes in Twu Wuv, with a capital Twu and a capital Wuv, and she doesn’t see any reason at all for that to change.
