“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!

I enjoy an older hero/heroine too. Also, thanks for the slice of life information.
