Laurie and Sasha have built a bright new world together. Sasha is working for the Immigration Guidance Council, and Laurie is landing theatre roles he could once only have dreamed of. Best of all, they've spent the past two years enjoying the love they snatched from the jaws of Sasha's violent, dangerous past.
But Laurie has a history too. He's on edge, his talents increasing beyond his ability to deal with them. And although his father is dead, Laurie can't deny the turbulent genetic heritage the old man has bestowed on him. Only Sasha's love is keeping him anchored and sane - and Sasha is vulnerable, shaken by bad dreams about his life on the streets.
Then Laurie learns that Sasha's Romanian gang-lord father is on the loose in London, and his deepest fears boil to the surface. The last time Stefan's shadow fell, Sasha made a run for it, and Laurie can't bear the thought of losing him again. When Laurie lands a part in the latest Hollywood blockbuster, he abandons England for a dream of safety in the States, persuading the astonished Sasha to come with him.
But the dream becomes a waking nightmare for both of them beneath an alien Californian sun. Laurie must meet his demons head-on, and Sasha must confront the inner barricades that have kept him from treating Laurie as a comrade as well as a lover and a friend. The frosts of a midwinter London brought them together - will this blazing summer crack them apart, or forge enduring love from first romance?

This was a wonderful continuation of The Midwinter Prince series. This book was from both Laurie's and Sasha's POV. The words of Harper Fox combined with the narration of Rusty Coles make for a very enjoyable listening experience. Highly recommend this.
Simply magnificent story of love and atonement
This book has everything. At its heart is a strong love story between diverse, extremely compelling characters - Sasha and Laurie . There is sort of a role reversal when Laurie takes on the protection of Sasha - he has stalwart intentions but blunders it so badly with such misappropirated aplomb. They both care so fiercely for each other they don't always make the best decisions. I appreciate that the story took some unexpected twists such as Laurie falling into substance abuse issues as a coping mechanism, rather than being honest with Sasha. What Laurie thought were protections led to worse problems. I also like that the story ran the full gamut from happy career, happy home life, to turbulent upheaval, culture shock, emotional betrayal, and the action/adventure climactic scenes. The secondary characters are all clearly presented and very pivotal to the story. Such wonderful escapism for this reader.
Hmm, so many. Many of them are reveals, so I can't be specific. I do like how intense both Laurie and Sasha are about their work, and in their feelings for one another. Although Laurie's intensity gets him into trouble at times -to say the least... I did love how when how all seemed hopeless, a figure from the past appeared to lend a very big helping hand. Laurie's sister Clara jad insights and interventions which were marvelous.
Anytime Laurie or Sasha called the other Ves'tacha ♥
Everything! He was able to voice each and every character uniquely and, in my mind, perfectly. Nobody sounded like a cartoon version, or unlike I imagined. It's an understatement to say he heightened the enjoyment of my favorite Harper Fox series. Took that enjoyment to the moon and back is more like it.
Laurie's about to take on the role of his life. But sometimes running away,,, brings your demons closer.
I highly recommend this audiobook and the prequel, A Midwinter Prince
