Brianna Esposito is determined to complete the Butler Inn construction under budget and on time—and to make partner in the Boston firm where she’s been working fourteen hours a day for five years. Finally, she has a chance to oversee an entire project from start to finish, and to show the firm’s leadership that she belongs among their ranks. Nothing is going to stop her from achieving her goal, especially a cranky contractor with the people skills of a rabid cougar. Noah Coleman is the most exasperating human being she’s ever had the misfortune to tangle with. She’s never had screaming fights with anyone the way she does him, and the fact that he’s also the sexiest man she’s ever met makes it that much more difficult to hold her ground.
So how is it that when a snowstorm strands her in Butler for Christmas, she ends up spending the holiday with the man she wants to stab one minute and kiss the next? And will he ever tell her why he’s so bitter and angry? Brianna suspects the answer to that question could also be the key to his well-protected heart.
Come back to Butler, Vermont to find out if these two adversaries will give in to the sparks that’ve been flying between them for months or if they’ll finally succeed in driving each other crazy.
My name is Wyatt Blake. I'm a cardiothoracic surgeon in Phoenix. When I was 17, I had a heart transplant that saved my life. That's not something I tell just anyone, because I hate being defined by the illness that ruled the first half of my life. The average life expectancy for a transplant patient is 11 years. I'm 34, and in case math isn't your thing, that puts me about six years past my expiration date when I spend a weekend at my buddy Jason's wedding in Miami and meet the sexiest bridesmaid in the history of sexy bridesmaids.
Dee Giordino. She's sweet, kind, loving and drop-dead gorgeous. I love every minute I spend with her.
We had so much fun together at the wedding, and when I invited her back to my room after, we had the best night I've ever had with anyone. And now I can't stop thinking about her or texting her or wishing our one-night stand could somehow be more, even though "more" isn't in my vocabulary.
When Jason tells me there's an opening in my specialty at his hospital, I come running back to Miami to interview for the job. And to see Dee again, even though I know that's completely unfair to her. In light of my situation, I've become the king of the one-night stand. It wouldn't be fair to drag someone else into my reality when my future is so uncertain.
But Dee, she's different from the beginning, and maybe, just maybe, I might have to break all my rules for her... Fair or not.
