Take a damsel in distress, a raging snowstorm, some scary bad guys, and a sexy firefighter and you have all the elements of Cheryl Yeko’s Mountain Hero. 

Mountain Hero is a novella length story that begins when Michelle finds herself broken down on the side of the road during a snow storm. Not only does the snowstorm pose a danger, but two dangerous men find her stranded and it doesn’t take long for Michelle to figure out they have less than honorable intentions. Lucky for her, sexy firefighter and all-around good guy, Jason comes upon the scene and stops to help. Unlucky for both of them, they get stranded with no car and little provisions to get through the raging storm. Michelle and Jason must figure out how to stay safe from both the storm and the bad guys.

The entire story takes place in a 24 hours period and much of it happens while both main characters are in the middle of nowhere during a snowstorm. If you’re wondering how romantic that set up is…don’t be. Jason definitely makes things more interesting when he has to strip Michelle down and keep her warm Although the book doesn’t give much room to learn much about Jason, his protectiveness and instant attraction seem to be hallmarks of the author’s heroes (which I like!).

Strong protective instincts filled him and centered in his heart. There was something about her that touched him at the most primal level. Some part of him that recognized her for what she was.


Mountain Hero was very short and actually ended at about the 80% mark on my Kindle. Even though there wasn’t room for a lot of development, I still really enjoyed it. It was well written and sexy. Cheryl Yeko is an author I just recently discovered and I can’t seem to resist really liking her shorter romantic suspense stories. All of her books seem to follow a very similar formula and meet all my requirements for a guilty pleasure read. Damsel in distress, sexy/protective hero, instant/intense attraction…

If you like romantic suspense-lite books and are looking for a short story, I’d definitely recommend checking out Mountain Hero. There’s not a lot to work with but what there is, is enjoyable. I’ve also read a few other books by the author and have enjoyed them all.
