“I loved seeing a story with an older hero and heroine; being in love doesn’t stop in your 20’s. ”
~ Under the Covers

Although this is listed as a full book in the Icehome series…don’t get too excited. I mean, you should definitely get a little excited as it is a Ruby Dixon release after all. But, don’t expect to have a full romance. This is more like a slice of life story. If you’ve read the previous books in the series – which you need to do RIGHT NOW if you haven’t – then you know that Gail has become the adopted mother of baby Z’hren. Z’hren is an orphan amongst one of the island tribes and Gail and her mate Vaza instantly agree to adopt him.

I really loved this very small novella – about 90 pages – it’s a bit different from romances you usually find. One, because Gail and Vaza are clearly already in an adorably loving and stable relationship, something that has developed in the background of the other books. Two, both Gail and Vaza are mature characters, both being in their early 50s. I loved seeing a story with an older hero and heroine; being in love doesn’t stop in your 20’s.

This was a really great slice of life/novella in the Icehome series, it’s a heart warming story and I am really pleased that Gail got a book of her own, even if it’s a short one. But, it has only whetted my appetite for more in this series!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
