She was beyond his reach…until she turned up on his doorstep.
Wade Abbott is one and done—one look, one conversation, one weekend, and he knows who he wants. Except, Mia Simpson is not free to return his affection. In fact, he suspects she's in an abusive marriage, but she never confirms that, and he has no choice but to mind his own business where she’s concerned. Two years after they first met and a year after he last heard from her, Mia shows up half-frozen, bruised and beaten on his doorstep, needing something only Wade can provide. <br><br>Mia has never forgotten the kind, gentle, sexy guy who made her heart sing from the first time she met him. She only cut off contact with him because she feared for his safety—and hers—and takes the first opportunity she gets to make a run for what she really wants—Wade. But nothing is ever as simple as happily ever after. With issues from her past still haunting them, and Wade's family questioning the motives of a woman they’ve never met, Wade and Mia will have to fight for their happy ending. <br><br>Wade Abbott’s long-awaited story is finally here, along with an update on the Abbott and Coleman clan as well as Fred the moose! <br><br><b>Reading Order for Green Mountain/Butler, Vermont Series <br>Green Mountain Series </b><br>Book 1: All You Need Is Love (Will & Cameron) <br>Book 2: I Want to Hold Your Hand (Hannah & Nolan) <br>Book 3: I Saw Her Standing There (Colton & Lucy) <br>Book 4: And I Love Her (Hunter & Megan) <br>Novella: You’ll Be Mine (Will & Cameron’s Wedding) <br>Book 5: It's Only Love (Ella & Gavin) <br>Book 6: Ain’t She Sweet (Charley & Tyler) <br><br><b>Butler, Vermont Series </b><br>Book 1: Every Little Thing (Grayson & Emma) <br>Book 2: Can't Buy Me Love (Patrick & Mary) <br>Book 3: Here Comes the Sun (Wade & Mia) <br>Book 4: Till There Was You (Lucas & Danielle)

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.
