Review - 4 Stars
I loved the cover, it's beautiful.  I'm not a big fan of sci-fi/fantasy, but this book didn't read too much like one, it's there but not overbearing.  It was intriguing and the characters were really good.  First time reader for this author, and she hooked me.  

The Season Elders of Evermore: Summer lady, Autumn Lord,  Winter Lord, Lady of Spring are all immortals protectors of the town of Evermore.  The people of the town honor each season elder with decorations and a feast to celebrate the change of the seasons.  They are not someone you mess with or fall in love with....

Winter Lord is striking with long white blue hair, tall, muscular and blue eyes.  His name is Audren.  His family is the royal house of De'vier, the masters of Winter.  He was sent to Evermore along with the other Elders to help the world blossom and have balance.  He's lonely and sad.  But soon he finds something that intrigues him and he wants them by his side, even if it's just for a bit....Dawn.   She's creating feelings he's not sure how to understand....is it love? 

Dawn is woman from Evermore who lives a simple life with her family.  She had a good life, but she also was bored and unhappy.  She wanted something more, a change, but her mother wanted her home.  So she stayed and cleaned, no other job for her, no other life for her.  The only thing she looked forward to was soon upon the town...Winter.  Dawn loved autumn, but winter was her favorite.  She loved theWinter Lord and couldn't wait for Winter to take over.  It was beautiful and allowed her to get glimpses of him.  She was fascinated by him and yearned for him.   But he knew nothing of her, he never would because she knew her love was doomed.  However, that didn't stop the intense feelings or sparks she felt when she thought about him.  Would she ever meet him?  Would her feelings ever die? 

A chance encounter brings Dawn and The Winter Lord together.  He's intrigued by her and she senses loneliness in him.  With the brief encounter this only intensifies Dawn's longing for him, which is not good.  The Elders are to be respected not lusted after.  He is a weakness for her, but how can she stop her feelings?  When he comes to her again and asks her to be his bride, she's unsure.  It's everything she wants, but something feels off.  What is it? 

Things start being explained that confused me a bit, but yet were very interesting.  The whole soul thing was intriguing.  Audren decides to make Dawn his bride.  He needs her, however, there are some secrets being kept from Dawn.  How will she react when she finds out? 
The connection between them was sweet, but you weren't sure if Audren was acting or was truly loving her.  Being as he is of the wintersroyals he is unfamiliar with love.  Caring, gentleness and kindness he knows, but love not so much.  He didn't know what it was, but he could act like it.  Is it true or an act?  Will guilt get to him?  Will he realize to late? 

I enjoyed this book, but as I said I did get confused a few times trying to understand their backgrounds.   The characters are enjoyable, a little funny, and quirky.    The sexual encounters between Dawn and Audren are steamy and good....there's a gentleness to them, maybe love really is there. 

If you like this genre you will enjoy this book.  If you don't like this genre you will enjoy this book.  It doesn't read like a sci/fi fantasy read,  the author blends it all so wonderfully together.  This was a fantastic love story and a definite surprise read for me.  The other characters are engaging and I ended up really liking Onyx....there is a story within him.  Actually, they all have stories that interest me.  4 Magical Stars!
