A second chance at love is all Kyle wants for Christmas, but a dark menace from his past wants him dead, and love is second to staying alive.
Kyle Lourenco has carved out a comfortable life and career for himself in Boston. With the holidays quickly approaching, he’s heading home for the first time in several years. Home to his loving parents and the small Canadian town where he was raised. And home to Christian, his best friend and the first man to steal his heart.
Just as a winter storm begins to blow in, it forces Kyle off the road only miles from home and a dark and sinister force from his past creeps ever closer. His only hope is getting to Christian’s cabin before the evil that has haunted him for years finally catches up to him.
Best friends since they were three, Christian Gauthier grew up next door to Kyle, in a remote mountain town with one stoplight and a forty-mile round trip to the nearest school. When Kyle left town for a shot at a professional hockey career, he took Christian’s heart with him. Even though he knew Kyle was always destined for bigger things, it hadn’t stopped Christian from falling for him as soon as he knew what love was.
With Christmas coming soon and a major snowstorm heading their way, Christian shuts the doors to the family store and heads to his cabin, where he will be on standby as an official volunteer for Search and Rescue. He has never regretted staying in Eagle Ridge, but a near miss on a simple rescue leads him to reevaluate everything, and when Kyle ends up at his door, he knows that guarding his heart might not be the best solution after all.
I should use the radio and contact his parents—let them know where he was, and that he was okay—because they were probably concerned that he hadn’t turned up. I should report him being here to the search and rescue team. Maybe I should call the RCMP. Someone might be looking for him, a friend, a lover? There might be someone else in the car wreck I assume he’d walked away from.
I couldn’t move as shock stole my rational thoughts, and I needed to know whether I had to go out there and rescue someone else.
“Kyle, were you alone?” No response, and then his eyes opened a little and I got my first look at the inky depths of a man in pain. “Is there someone else out there in the snow?” I asked clearly.
“Were you alone in the car?”
“Is anyone else in danger?”
“Alone,” he managed and closed his eyes again. That was one thing I guess—he’d been driving in a snowstorm on his own, which meant I didn’t need to suit up and get out there. He’d slipped back into sleep, but it was restless and jarring as he groaned in pain and mumbled something that I barely made out… Taqriaqsuit. A nightmare then because the ancient phantoms of his momma’s stories visited in his sleep, and I’d held him before when the night terrors consumed him. I’d held him and quieted his fears, and he’d left me, and he’d never come back.
“No… no… no…”
The blankets moved a little as he jerked and then whimpered, but his eyes were still closed, and I knew he wasn’t in this world right now. Wherever he was, he was fighting the same age-old demons that plagued his childhood. There was only one thing that stopped them then, but it meant me climbing into bed with him and cradling him, reassuring him I could keep him safe. It meant me opening my heart to the only man I loved and promising him I’d be there forever.
I refused to lie because forever was something we’d never have.
