I figured moonlighting as a Santa stripper was the most exciting thing on my docket this holiday season.
But that was before Macy Clayton careened back into my life, before we were snowed in at a ranger station in the middle of nowhere.
And yes, what the survivalists say is true--you really do stay warmer, and happier, when you're naked.
Soon, Macy and I are back on track to forever. But crossed signals and old wounds prove that second chances can be tricky, even during the most wonderful time of the year.
I'll pull out all the stops to prove to Macy she's the only one I want to jingle my bells, but will it be enough to pull off a Christmas miracle?
Previously published as "Snow Place Like Home" It has been heavily revised and expanded for this novel-length edition.
Until the night we kiss…
It’s all a ruse, of course—our make-out session is for the benefit of the two heartbreakers who dumped us—but very real sparks fly when his lips meet mine.
At least…they’re real for me.
She’s my employee, one of my best friends, my dog Luke’s not-so-secret crush, and totally off-limits.
So why am I suddenly unable to think of anything but Zoey Childers?
Two days into our fake engagement and I’m dying to take her to bed and show her just how real the heat could be between us. But crossing that line wouldn’t just be borderline unethical—it could be lethal to our friendship.
Zoey isn’t a casual fling kind of girl, and after the way things ended with my ex, I don’t trust my instincts when it comes to love.
I should call off this fake engagement before somebody gets hurt, but how to say “no” to something real with Zoey when every bone in my body is dying to say “yes”?
The Heartbreaker is a sexy, swoony Standalone romance!
And—wait for it—cursed with a deadly allergy to erecto-plasm. As in she’ll seriously swell up and die if seminal fluid even touches her. Which means finding the perfect guy to punch her V card is literally a matter of life and death.
She wants a no-strings summer fling, but she needs someone she can trust. A puck buddy who isn’t going to get overly emotional. Someone who’s as savvy in the sack as he is on the ice.
That’s where I come in. It’s a simple request, really—and one I would be happy to honor.
If it weren’t for the whole life-and-death thing.
If I hadn’t just been traded to a team thousands of miles away from this girl who makes me think not all relationships are a losing game.
If I wasn’t already crazy in love with her.
This arrangement is a disaster waiting to happen, but the heart wants what it wants, and mine wants Bree, danger and all.
