North of Need (Hearts of the Anemoi 1) by Laura Kaye

Her tears called a powerful snow god to life, but only her love can grant the humanity he craves...

While attempting to escape the agonizing memories she associates with Christmas, twenty-nine-year-old widow Megan Snow builds a snow family outside the mountain cabin she once shared with her husband--and collapses in tears against the snowman at the sight of what she'll never have.

Called to life by the power of Megan's tears, snow god Owen Winters appears unconscious on her doorstep in the midst of a raging blizzard. As she nurses him to health, Owen finds unexpected solace in her company and unimagined pleasure in the warmth of her body, and vows to win her heart for a chance at humanity.

Megan is drawn to Owen's mismatched eyes, otherworldly masculinity, and enthusiasm for the littlest things, and her heart opens enough to believe he's a Christmas miracle. But this miracle comes with an expiration--before the snow melts and the temperature rises, Megan must let go of her widow's grief and learn to trust love again, or she'll lose Owen forever.

Reviewer: Fashionta
This book was good in a cheesy kind of way. The characters, setting, and plot related to the theme of Winter. Whether it be their element powers or last names, the author was able to keep up with this theme and it's interesting how she manages to do so with out becoming cliché and cheesy like so many books do when this angle is tried.

It was a well written book and it's the perfect length since it is the first book in the series and we get introduced to other characters that I hope that will feature in the series. I have to give it 4 stars. I wish we had a glossary so that we could refer back to, because it was hard to remember which person is which god or works for the god.
