Christmas has never been a big deal to event planner Emily Henderson. Holidays were for kids with families, not a girl whose big brother was the only thing keeping her out of a foster home. But now, her brother and his wife are gone--and the only family she has left is their little girl, Natalie. And Emily's determined to give the child everything she never had. There's only one problem...Natalie's sexy maternal uncle.
Stockbroker turned lodge owner Carson McBride isn't letting Emily take his niece anywhere. But it's Christmas, so he offers a truce--Emily can spend the holidays at the lodge with him, his father, and Natalie, and they'll figure out custody in the New Year. He's sure Emily will realize that Montana is the best place for their niece to grow up.
Only, during the next week, the one thing Emily and Carson realize is that they can't keep their hands off each other! But even as they grow closer--much, much closer--they're still at an impasse. Will Emily leave with Natalie or will she give her niece up to Carson? Or will this unconventional family get a true Christmas miracle?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: As an Army Brat, award winning author Pam Mantovani frequently had to leave friends behind. But no matter where she lived, romance novels were her constant companions. Then she met the man of her dreams on a blind date, and after she married her hero, Pam started writing her own love stories. Now she has more friends, imaginary and real-life, than she can count. She's still happily married to the man who swept her off her feet and gave her the romance of a lifetime. She loves writing about strong women and men who find each other and quilt the fabric of their lives together.
Through with both her controlling ex and relationships, Ava Webber is determined to explore the spicy and sometimes forbidden appetites of the exclusive BDSM nightclub, Serve. Here, she'll get exactly what she needs...as long as it's from a man she doesn't know.
Nolan Hart ensures that Serve's clients get what they want, how they want it. But with one look at the curvy brunette, Nolan knows he's the man to fulfill her desires. As the anonymous lover, he's Ava's dirtiest fantasy. Outside of Serve, he's her charming, smartass friend.
But Nolan wants more. More than Ava is willing to give. And as long as the blindfold stays on, she'll never discover that the two men she's falling for are one and the same...
My client’s younger sister is off-limits. Forbidden.
Getting my first big client signed to the NFL was the second best moment of my life. Escorting his sister back to her hotel was the first. Imagining what she would feel like, look like, taste like—none of it was as good as the real thing.
If her brother found out, it would destroy my career, so I ended things between us.
Eight years later, the girl who got away still owns me.
First, I’ll make her forgive me, and then I’m going to make her mine.
He’s owned my body for far too long.
It’s been years since he touched me, and my skin still remembers every brush, stroke, and thrust. I want to forget how good it felt. Almost as much as I want to do it again.
We can’t finish what we started until I make my confession.
I have a secret—one that wasn’t mine to keep.
Before he can love me, he’ll have to find some way to forgive me.

Olivia was the best thing that ever happened to me. But she’s a good girl, and I have a side that is far too dark for a minister’s daughter.

But she’s back in my life, and I need a wife before I can take full ownership of our failing vineyard and hotel. Only problem is, I want her again. No way can I put my hands on her. One kiss, one taste, could unleash the side of me that would only scare her.
