Clover is an orphan and has led a tough and chaotic life. No stability. No money. No friends. He trusts no one.
His already miserable life takes a nosedive when he ends up in the hands of a human trafficking gang. Someone has placed a request for a young albino man, and Clover is to become the property of a mysterious buyer who will stop at nothing to satisfy their depraved desire. Clover’s fate seems sealed until four bounty hunters appear to take out his captors and accidentally save him.
The four mercenaries want to move on, but when Clover pleads for protection, they offer it to him at a price. In the beginning, the arrangement is all kinds of shady, but as he gets to know the four men who’ve taken him on a wild ride, his developing feelings might become as dangerous as the elusive buyer.
But can a relationship with four such different men even work? Men who kill for a living? Men so full of contradictions?
Tank. The massive ex-soldier eager to be Clover’s Daddy.
Pyro. Wild, tattooed, with a filthy mouth and an itch for violence.
Boar. Ginger, bearded, a big teddy bear who can turn into a grizzly.
Drake. Dark and dangerous, with a tongue as sharp as his knives.
Can these men provide him with the love and security he craves? Or has Clover made the worst mistake of his life?

Reviewing Snow of the White Hills by Wendy Rathbone.

Snow of the White Hills by Wendy Rathbone 4*
BLURB: A Gay Fairytale.
Once upon a time an imprisoned prince was rescued by seven beautiful men.
For two years, Prince Snow has been locked away in the palace tower. On the night Queen Serena decides to do away with him for good, seven beautiful men with equally tragic pasts appear out of nowhere to rescue him.
Starved for affection, hurt, and in fear for his life, Snow is shown attention and care he has never known. The seven men teach him what real loyalty and love can be.
Doc, their leader, will heal him.
Sleepy, the most devoted, offers to become his love until the end of days.
All yearn to fight to gain Snow his rightful throne.
But Snow cannot justify his new friends putting their lives on the line for him. His heart will break forever if anything happens to Sleepy. Maybe it would be better for all if he just left…
You will love Prince Snow, but you will fall in love with Sleepy!
M/M romance, non-magical fantasy, abduction, imprisonment, rescue, hurt/comfort, and a sweet love story with a happy ending!


My Review: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. That last line of the blurb says it all. I love modern twists on old fairy tales and this one was a really good version. It had great characters and a decent world build for a fairy tale. I truly did fall in love with both Snow and Sleepy (who is definitely not a dwarf!) and I really enjoyed the others too. I hope that Ms. Rathbone will break with tradition and give us some romances with the other guys in the future or, if not that, then add her touch to some other fairy tales instead.
