Book Review: Rocky Mountain Miracle by Christine Feehan

Rocky Mountain Miracle by Christine Feehan is a novella that was previously published in a collection of three Christmas romances. Cole Steele is said to be a womanizer that killed his father and plans to take out his younger brother next. However, he is nothing like the stories being spread about him. Maia Armstrong is a traveling veterinarian that is said to dabble in magic. When the two meet Cole is intrigued, and Maia tries to keep her distance.  But, an injured horse brings them together and it becomes clear that attraction is mutual. As Cole and Jace try to come together as family, they need to deal with their shared trauma and deal with the accidents that might be part of a bigger scheme. Can Jace, Cole, and Maia make this a merry Christmas despite the trouble around them?

Rocky Mountain Miracle has a certain magic to it. Cole and Jace have each endured more than anyone should and are each doubting themselves and each other. Thrown into this family crisis, Maia has caught Cole's attention in a way he has never experienced. Getting trapped on the ranch because of a snowstorm and the threat of 'accidents' heightens the conflict and emotions as everyone tries to find the words and connections that they need to come together. Not a lot of hot and heavy action for those that like the really steamy romance, but for readers that really love character interaction and family dynamics in their romance will be very happy.

Rocky Mountain Miracle is a good read.  It is short, since it is a novella that began as part of a collection, but it is emotionally charged. There are strong family dynamics and a great deal about trying to connect and finding ones place. I was a little disappointed with Maia's character, she seemed just a little too perfect at times, but all together it was a perfect read for a winters night.
