Never let it be said that a Trammel can’t stand on his own two feet. That’s the message Greyson, Grey to his friends, hopes he is delivering to his family. He wants to live life on his own terms and finds himself in Alaska to begin his career as a sports-and-feature writer. Grey recognizes musher Dylan Norgard as a way to make his dream a reality. However, a few bad decisions could end his career and shorten his life expectancy.

Dylan is a loner and has no room for anything but racing and his dogs in his life. Healing has been a slow process, but the love of his dogs has given him a strong foundation to begin a new life. He recognizes Grey for the greenhorn he is and while he has reconciled himself to stay away, fate has other plans!

I’ll be the first to admit that I know very little about the world of dog racing, but I know a story that is written with heart and draws me in when I read one. Love Is Snowblind is just that type of story. Grey has grit! While he makes mistakes, he’s man enough to not make excuses and is willing to rectify problems, regardless of what it takes. Dylan is gruff, but even he cannot deny what type of man Grey is. His shell isn’t hard enough to allow his heart to escape the inevitable. They are a perfect mixture of sweetness and salt, like an erotic PayDay candy bar ready for me to unwrap and devour.

There was no aspect of this story that I didn’t enjoy. The harsh beauty of the landscape took my breath away while the secondary characters charming personalities stole a piece of my heart. Deirdre O'Dare has added yet another wonderful story to the Canine Cupids series.
