Luke Chandler says he wants nothing more than a quiet life on his land-claim in Dakota Territory. But what he also wants is a partner. The problem is, loving other men in 1881 means a lonely life for a man like Luke. As the son of a butcher from Boston, his desire for a loving domestic relationship seems nothing more than a dream, until one winter night, a snow storm blows a young man to his door in need of shelter, and as the winter drags on, bringing with it a slow burning love, his hopes begin to soar. Along with those hopes, his fears of the reactions of the people in the small town of De Smet grow.

Sam Smith is a romantic, but he also holds a strong family loyalty. He leaves Boston to get away from his parents’ expectations for a while, always knowing he must return at some point. The sweet young man does not anticipate meeting a rugged, honest man like Luke, who is desperate for love while at the same time afraid of the repercussions. The first time Luke holds him in his arms, Sam plans on making Luke his darling man.

Winter Hearts by Fyn Alexander is a sweet romance between very unlikely men.   Luke is a bit jaded.  He is gay in a small western town, he knows he cannot come out so he just keeps to himself. He is just existing till he meets Sam.
Sam is a young man who comes into the small town in the middle of winter. He needs a place to stay Luke lets him stay with him.  Sam is a ray of sunshine in the dull life of Luke.  Sam is okay with being gay and accept that about himself.  Once both men get to that point they heat up the small cabin they are living in for the winter.
When reality calls and Sam must go home so many things  keep these two  a part but will love be enough to keep them together.  I loved this story. The characters are perfect for each other.  They are parts of a whole with each having what the other needs. When you want a heart warming story that will make you believe in true love this is the book to pick up.
