Winter Love by Andrew Grey

The starting point of this short novel, 65 pages, is the same of the previous long novel by Andrew Grey, Children of Bacchus: Blayne is a young man with some family issues who would like to take a break from life. He has fond memory of a piece of land, heirloom of his family; so when his father asks him to drive up in the snow to evict the tenant of the land, Blayne is not at all happy. He has always hoped to receive the land in legacy after his father's death, and instead now his father wants to sell it.

Plus Blayne is even less happy to be forced to evict an old man to the land the man always considered home. But when he arrives to the isolated cabin, he doesn't find an old man, but a handsome young guy more or less his own age. And since Blayne is gay, and Roeder, the handsome guy, is very friendly, they spend the time adding some body warm to what arrives from the fireplace.

As I said, Winter Love is almost a condensed story of Children of Bacchus. There is no much drama when Blayne discovers that his new lover is not entirely a man, but he is part satyr... actually maybe this is a nice novelty. Obviously Blayne will do anything necessary to be able to live in peacefully bliss with his satyr lover: all this series is about men who manage to reconnect with their inner desires and with the nature, that is a symbol of natural and sincere love. If you haven't read Children of Bacchus, Winter Love is a nice appetizer that can stimulate you to try the longer novel.
