Scott Parker has loved Marissa since the first day he bumped into her freshman year of college. Only he'd never been able to tell her. After all, you didn't just grab your best friend's girlfriend, kiss her and tell her she was the One for you, no matter how often he'd dreamed about it. Now, years later, Marissa is single and, in a moment of pure luck, staying at his cabin. When a winter storm blocks the roads and snows the two of them in, Scott is determined to make Marissa see there can be more between them than a shared history...if only she'll let him.
Celebrity chef Kathleen Wilson has returned to Whispering Cove for her high-school reunion. Tired of big city life, she's looking forward to relaxing in the quaint fishing village. The one thing she's not looking forward to is facing the boy from her past. The boy she turned her back on ten years ago. The same boy she has never gotten over.
Firefighter Trent Parker has never given up on reuniting with his Katy. When he hears she's back in town, he figures the quickest way to show her where she really belongs is to launch an all-out, blatant campaign of seduction. An accident with a fire hose leaves her soaked-and ignites a firestorm of need in them both, with only one way to extinguish the flames.
Soon they're burning up the sheets, but when morning comes and the smoke clears, Katy faces a choice she never thought she'd have to make again. To leave for another ten years...or admit that the heat between her and Trent isn't about to burn out.
Warning: A dash of chocolate, a celebrity chef and a sexy firefighter who knows as much about starting a fire as how to put one out.

Will her attempts to stop construction push Zander to fold? Or is it possible that by saving her parent’s love story, she’s also making her own?
