Holing up in her isolated cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains is just what Lauren Gaines needs to get over a nasty divorce. But the blizzard that snows her in brings an unexpected surprise: a hunky stranger who shows up on Christmas Eve.
Spending the holidays alone in his North Carolina getaway could be the break high-powered businessman Colton Riley needs from his fast-track life. Until a storm strands him without power...and lands him on the doorstep of his knockout next-door neighbor. Instant attraction leads to a night of sweet lovemaking. Little by little, Colton starts earning Lauren's fragile trust.
Then life throws him a curve that he never saw coming--one that could cost him a future with the Raleigh beauty. Or will the new year be filled with love's sweet promise?
