Alice McKinney was supposed to be home for the holidays, enjoying her mother’s homemade pies and her father’s fried turkey. Instead, she’s trapped in a blizzard, holed up in a small cabin somewhere on the coast of Oregon.

Spending fourteen hours in a car with the girl he’d always wanted but couldn’t have was punishment enough. Then the storm hit, leaving them stranded in a romantically perfect setting. Now, he’ll get to spend the holidays with his dream woman in a very magical place.
