Former interior designer and store owner Olivia Livingston followed her brother to Christmas Town, Tennessee two and a half years ago and never looked back. It was the perfect place for purchasing the holiday knickknack shop, All Things Christmas, and an ideal spot for hiding from heartache. Olivia's broken engagement to a Virginia vintner three years before shattered her illusions about love. So when a hot, young architect comes to town to restore the Grand Hotel, Olivia has no qualms about working with him on the project. Nick Claus might be tall, dark and exceedingly handsome--with spectacular blue eyes. But that doesn't mean Olivia's even mildly attracted to the really nice guy, who can totally fill out a pair of jeans. And, seriously? What is the deal with him thinking he can tell when she's been naughty or nice?

"That was ages ago," Savannah said, even though in her heart it seemed like only yesterday.
"That doesn't mean it doesn't matter.""We were kids, Kurt."
"That's what others saw," he said hoarsely. "Not the truth that we knew."
"I don't want that truth anymore."
"Don't you...?" His arms slid around her, and Savannah's breath hitched. Kurt was better looking now than he ever was. He stood just over six feet tall with a solid buff frame, and dark blond hair offsetting his rugged features. "Carter tells me that you and James are no longer together."
"That's my business," she said unconvincingly. "Not yours."
