Winter's Rain - Katie Mettner/ Second Look Sunday

Winter Cheyne was a child bride, sold for the price of a gambling debt. After years of abuse she knew breaking free of his hold would be dangerous, maybe even deadly, but it was a chance she had to take. The freedom she found as Winter Rayne was an illusion, instantly shattered by the high beams of an oncoming car.

Dr. Jedidiah Raintree never knew the truth about what happened to his best friend, Winter Cheyne. Growing up on the reservation together they were inseparable, until fate intervened and tore them apart. He’s spent the last twenty years looking for the girl with the long black hair and almond eyes, but ran into dead ends at every turn. Where he didn’t expect to find her was huddled in his cabin, pointing a gun at his chest.

With the first snowstorm of the season bearing down on them, Rain convinces Winter he can keep her safe until the storm passes, but quickly learns safety is an apparition. The only choice he has is to risk everything to save the girl he once knew.

Hidden somewhere in her are the secrets she's being hunted for. Hidden somewhere in him is the strength she will need to face them and be free. Hidden somewhere in their past is the key to their future. As the snow falls hard around them, desperation, deceit and death must work in harmony to fulfill their destiny.

Winter's Rain is a story unlike any other I've read.  Katie Mettner stepped away from the differently abled and dove right into a more delicate subject of domestic abuse and it's survivor.  Winter is one tough cookie.  She's been through hell and back.  She's a fighter with survivor instincts.  Rain is a protector, healer and alpha.  The love and care between Winter and Rain was electric.  Yet Rain is amazingly patient and caring.  This is a wonderful story about survival, love, trust and self discovery.
Winter's Rain shows love is patient and kind, and love prevails over all.
I give Winter's Rain....
