An unexpected blizzard strands Fiona and a vanfull of her Hi-Q students on the way home from a weekend competition, leaving her no choice but to impose upon John, who owns a remote lodge. At first surly but dutifully hospitable, John turns out to be a sufferer of PTSD, from his tour in Iraq. Over the course of their stay, he and Fiona grow close. With a houseful of her pupils, it's impossible for them to get much time alone, much less act upon their atttaction.
This is not a hot, steamy read. It's a sweet romance, with full bodied characters and a true to life story. John has lots to overcome in order to build a serious relationship, and Fiona is smart enough to realize as much. It's a good story, played out over a long period of time, with the trademark happy ending, of course!
I'd rate it a Nice Bang for Your Entertainment Buck.

Romance is sexy.
