Her children are grown, her ex betrayed her in the worst way, and it's her first Christmas alone. What better way to spend it than with the hottest man she's ever seen? She deserves a little fun after losing everything she's worked so hard for.
Margot Rhodes is glad to wake up in her hotel room to an empty bed. Her one and only hookup was phenomenal, but she doesn't need to say goodbye to a man she'll never see again. Except when she comes downstairs...she finds him in the lobby.
A snowstorm shut down the airport, and now she's stuck with him for three days.
She needs to rebuild her life--not fall for some guy who lives two thousand miles away--so she does her best to avoid him, but the infuriating man keeps teaming up with her in the holiday events the hotel owner's arranged to keep her guests happy.
And then, when it's time to go their separate ways, he makes an offer she can't refuse. It requires a move to his hometown...but what does she have to lose? She's starting from the bottom which means the only way forward is up.
She's got a second chance at life...is she willing to risk it all for a dirty-talking stranger?
