ROMANCE TROPES: enemies to lovers, policeman hero, holiday romance
Allie Hart has got his hands full trying to find a job and being there for his sister and her kids. Loyal to the bone, he’s not looking for anything to get in the way of his obligations.
When a chance encounter throws Allie into the wide swath of Rey’s concern, Rey resolves to play the hero as usual, and Allie is determined to tell him where to stick it. The last thing Allie needs is some rich know-it-all treating him like a damsel in distress.
But the attraction between them leads to more than a back-alley tryst—although not anywhere close to for-keeps. All of Rey’s previous lovers have been polished up and paired off with someone more suitable. After all, there’s always someone in need, and Rey vowed a long time ago not to let anything or anyone come between him and his responsibilities. But Allie Hart may be the one gift he’s tempted to keep for himself.

When a desperate plea from their boss ruins their holiday plans, Lucy and Evans are stuck in an otherwise empty office with only each other for company. After catching their boss in flagrante, they start to see that each other’s mild workplace personas might be just the tip of the iceberg. Despite the prohibition against fraternization between employees, there may be more than kissing going on underneath this mistletoe…
Astrid’s a dapper-dressing med student whose brazen confidence and sense of style awaken Kinsey’s dormant attraction to women. Despite Astrid’s own fascination with the redhead, she shies away from their connection, suspecting Kinsey’s not looking for anything more than an ego-boosting flirtation.
But after an impromptu date in Boston’s chic South End, it seems as though the spark between them could turn into something more. They’ll have to decide whether to let fears of rejection and disingenuousness hold sway, or take a chance on each other and an entanglement neither of them were seeking, but might be exactly what they were looking for.
