Overview

From the Snowed In and Snuggled Up Holiday Collection by New York Times bestselling author Erin Quinn, award-winning and bestselling author Calista Fox, and USA Today bestselling author Mary Leo:

Scout Winchester is looking to re-ignite his career. A little sizzle in his love life wouldn't hurt, either!

After an entire lifetime of preparing to be the next NHL great, Scout reached the pinnacle in hockey by 29--then hit rock bottom, following a horrific car accident. He walked away from the hospital; but residual injuries forced him to walk away from the spotlight. Returning to Plymouth Rock, Colorado as a hometown hero is all well and dandy, but Scout has broken family fences to mend, job offers to consider...and a raven-haired beauty from his past who deserves the ultimate decision from him.

Ciara St. James still hasn't found her place in the world. How long can she keep running from her past?

Not dealt the best hand from the get-go, Ciara survives on instinct, personal convictions and an adventurous spirit. She's learned how to make the best of every disastrous situation, but deep down, there are past pains she hides from everyone... Except for Scout. When they're suddenly reunited for the Thanksgiving holiday and are snowed in at Win Creek Cabin, Ciara realizes the time has come to stop running. To stop hiding. To snuggle up with the only man she's ever loved and face her demons while he faces his--and hope they both come out unscathed.

A Dash of Spice is a well-written, quick read filled with life and love. I liked that the main characters, Scout and Ciara had a long-standing relationship as friends and lovers although they weren't officially together as a couple. The fact that each of their jobs involved constant traveling kept them from settling down together in one place but they stayed in touch and saw each other whenever they could. A shared past, growing up together in Plymouth Rock, Colorado forged an unbreakable bond between these two and like those of us out here in the real world, they had a fair share of both good and bad experiences, a balance of both good and bad people in their lives.Perhaps their occasional romance might have continued indefinitely if a series of unfortunate circumstances hadn't landed them both back home in Plymouth Rock for the Thanksgiving holiday. Scout, a star player in the NHL had suffered a career-ending injury following a car accident the previous year but he has yet to share the details of that injury or his subsequent health issues with Ciara or his family. The magazine that Ciara had worked for for a decade folded suddenly leaving her jobless and adrift, not really sure in what direction she wanted to take her life next. Perhaps the two of them coming together for the holiday will allow them both to figure out what to do next and whether or not they should be doing whatever that is together. I really enjoyed the author's writing style and the fact that although this was a shorter read than I prefer, all of the pertinent details were there to understand who these characters were as people and to like them too. The vivid description of the setting, scenery and characters made it easy to visualize what was happening which, for me, makes a story truly enjoyable. This author writes very well and I will definitely be reading more from her. A highly recommended, short holiday read!

This is the second story in the 'Snowed In and Snuggled Up Holiday Collection'. Can I just say wow? There is a very steamy scene where Ciara is showing Scout her thigh highs, and just wow - this book is worth the read based on that alone ;) Before reading this short story collection, I had never read a book by this author, but think I may be hooked now. I love short set like these that really get you in the mood for some holiday cheer. Both characters are very flawed, and their own scars, but together they are on fire. The book blurb is very accurate in describing the plot, and I highly recommend it. In fact, I'm going to go see what else this author has written now. I will definitely start to follow this author and can't wait to read more books from her in the future.
