Halloween is over.  Thanksgiving is on its way.  The season’s are changing, and Christmas is right around the corner.  What better way to celebrate the holidays than to curl up with a hot, sexy story about a hot, sexy snowboarder?  Dashing through the Snow, the newest creation of M. Leighton, is coming your way November 20, 2016.

Dilyn Hart hates Christmas, so when her boss (and ex-boyfriend) hands her an assignment to interview champion snowboarder and gorgeous playboy extraordinaire, Dash Grainger, on Christmas Eve, she takes it. There are several things she doesn’t plan for—a surly driver, a chalet in the middle of nowhere, a freak snowstorm—but the biggest surprise of all is Dash himself.

Dash Grainger lives for the high, and so far in his twenty-six years, he’s never met anyone or anything he loves more. Nothing has ever thrilled him as much as slick snow, cold air, and breakneck speed.

Until he meets Dilyn.

But one perfect night doesn’t mean clear, blue skies the next day. There are some storms that can’t be weathered.

Christmas Day might just be one of them.



DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW may be a novella, but it manages to pack quite a bit in while it has you. Dilyn doesn’t have much thought or care for the Christmas spirit, but her mandated work trip gives her relief in knowing she’ll be far away from it all. What she doesn’t expect was a very spicy distraction in the form of a daredevil snowboarder, and Dash will defy all of her proconceived notions.

The characters were apparent and striking, and I got a sense of what they wanted and who they were from the get-go which can be difficult to achieve in a shorter story. It was sexy, but had some real moments of gut-twinging and some angst which was a really nice addition to the story and added another layer to it. It’s not just a quick, easy story, but instead one that delivers passion and longing and love. Readers will enjoy getting lost in this story and wish that it were longer, but will be satisfied with what DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW has to offer. Overall a sexy, enjoyable holiday novella.



New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a rarely ever comfortable speaking about herself in the third person, but here goes. Michelle is a former nurse who has always harbored a passion for the written word, a weakness for alpha males, and a profound love of all things romantic. Never in her wildest dreams did this Yankee-turned-Southerner imagine her life as it is today. She has the best job in the world, a husband who treats her like a princess, and a dog that’s so smart she may one day write a novel, too. You can often find Michelle hidden away in her cave, crafting a new story, or out in the sunshine enjoying some quiet time with her man. Movies, wine, and good food are frequently thrown into the mix, and exercise on days that start with Q. She loves laughter, chocolate, the color red, and you can find out more about her on her website.
