When Miles Shepard sees gorgeous Nora Hart across a crowded room on New Year’s Eve, he leaps at the chance to steal a super-sexy kiss at midnight. Then he flees the party without swapping numbers with her. He’s ready to put this year in his rearview mirror—and the last thing he needs are complications.
But he hasn’t reckoned on Nora. Despite her own miserable year, she can’t forget Miles’s kiss—and she won’t quit till she tracks down her mystery man. Miles can’t deny the force of their attraction—even as he wrestles with how much to tell her about the trouble he’s in.
Putting their painful pasts behind them won’t be easy. But if they can face their doubts boldly, they might just get a second chance to start the year in each other’s arms.
About the author
USA Today bestselling author Serena Bell writes contemporary romance with heat, heart, and humor. A former journalist, Serena has always believed that everyone has an amazing story to tell if you listen carefully, and you can often find her scribbling in her tiny garret office, mainlining chocolate and bringing to life the tales in her head.
Serena’s books have earned many honors, including a RITA finalist spot, an RT Reviewers’ Choice Award, Apple Books Best Book of the Month, and Amazon Best Book of the Year for Romance.
When not writing, Serena loves to spend time with her college-sweetheart husband and two hilarious kiddos—all of whom are incredibly tolerant not just of Serena’s imaginary friends but also of how often she changes her hobbies and how passionately she embraces the new ones. These days, it’s stand-up paddle boarding, board-gaming, meditation, and long walks with good friends.
