Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He's handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he's facing yet another holiday season alone.
When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion lead to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.

Have a box of tissues handy.....
*** Fabulous narration from Mr Russo...yet again!! Yes, I cried (sap) and he almost sounded teared up himself. All the stars!! ***
Tears and ugly crying indeed. This insta-love story certainly had me reaching for the tissue box. The visual imagery with the snow, the trees and the two men cut off and adrift, caught by the blizzard and just...connecting. 4.5 gooey stars from me.
Trevor, an artist who was suffering from increasing kidney failure, had more or less resigned himself to the fact that this could possibly be his last Christmas. He couldn't get back to Connecticut to see his family because of the weather, and was spending the night in a hotel where his eyes were drawn to another guy already sitting at a table...and whose own eyes were following every move Trevor made.
Marc was a civil rights lawyer, and such a lonely soul who buried himself in his work to compensate for the fact that he had no-one. Family not worth mentioning, a mother he hadn't spoken to in 10 years and he'd kept himself aloof from his work colleagues cos he didn't think he was worth bothering with.
The connection they made on that one snowy night was to see them through Christmas Day at Marc's home until Trevor knew that he had to leave...that to stay and give them both false hope for the future was something he couldn't bring himself to do. He left, leaving Marc a sort of Dear John note, but Marc wouldn't accept that it was over....I'll leave this one here.

A beautifully broken story brought to life.
What did you love best about A Fortunate Blizzard?
The way that these two men fall for each other while trying to convince themselves they shouldn't.
What did you like best about this story?
Aside from the amazing job the Author did when writing it, I enjoyed reading a book about two grown men acting like grown men. Very little angst, lots of emotion and passion and even a bit of heart break.
What about Nick J. Russo’s performance did you like?
Ah-Mazing! He nailed both characters voices flawlessly. He has this bravado tone to his voice that I just love, it's like honey dripping from the vine.
Who was the most memorable character of A Fortunate Blizzard and why?
Trevor, hands down. The decision he had to make and the affect it had on him, it tore me up.
Any additional comments?
Tams e-book review November 2015
What if one night, one chance meeting could change your life? Would you take that leap of faith if you have already convinced yourself that none of it matters? That is exactly the choice Trevor Morrison has to make. Trapped at a local hotel during one of the worst Blizzards on record, Trevor meets Marc, and enigmatic Lawyer with mesmerizing green eyes. The attraction is mutual and immediate so they decide to enjoy each other for the night. But when the sun comes up, Marc finds himself wanting more than just the one night stand that was agreed upon. Trevor is adamant that it's not possible, but when he can't find a flight out and faces the possibility of spending Christmas alone, Marc jumps at the chance to take Trevor to his home and show him what it could be like if he would only say yes.
I really enjoyed the strangers in the night aspect of the story and the chemistry between the characters. While there is a heaviness on Trevor's shoulders because he is facing the very real possibility that he won't find a donor in time, that he will finally succumb to kidney failure, Chase balanced that level of sadness with love and passion. Marc wants Trevor in his life, but more than that, he wants Trevor to live and he will stop at nothing to ensure that, even if he doesn't remain a part of Marc's life.
A variety of emotions played out in the pages of this story. Angst, passion, sadness, determination and love. It was well written, well rounded and wonderfully conveyed. Definitely a must read, I devoured it in one setting, just could not put it down.
