The only thing worse than being snowed in at the airport on Christmas Eve far from home?
Being snowed in with the one man you’ve been trying your best to avoid.
Bear Hansen is a burly sweetheart with loads of sexy tattoos and big hands that did wickedly wonderful things to me the last time we met.
Things that made me want way more than a one-night stand…
Which is why I ran, blocked his calls, and stopped commenting on his cat videos. I only have a few years to launch my career. I'm determined not to end up filled with regret like my mother, so I have to focus on making my professional dreams come true.
But when Bear and I are thrown together by fate on the most magical night of the year, I find myself questioning everything.
What if I have this all wrong? What if what I want most in life is standing right in front of me, offering to love me no matter what?
Bear and I have one night to find out…
When it Shines is a steamy, feel good, snowed-in romance featuring a tattooed cinnamon roll hero and all the usual Bad Dog hijinx. It is part of The McGuire Brothers series, but can stand alone.

I love every book in Bad Dog, and I was super excited to get Bear & Dipsy's story! This one is filled with mishaps and adorableness. I'm also a sucker for airport romance. Absolutely love this one!
Fun holiday second chance romance!
When it shines is a second chance romance and an extension of the Bad Dog storyline by Lili Valente.
Rose (Dipsy) and Bear have always felt a powerful connection to each other. With a fear of losing focus on her journalism career, however, Rose chose to run from the pull she has always felt to Bear’s heart. But when she unexpectedly bumps into Bear while she is stuck at the airport awaiting a flight home for the holidays, those feelings Rose has tried so hard to ignore return with a strength she is finding more and more difficult to fight. But Bear is determined to prove to Rose that their connection is something they should explore. While letting her find her way to opening her heart to him, Bear and Rose experience an unforgettable night complete with comedic fun, and baby alligator and hot and steamy passion.
Ms. Valente has once again outdone herself with this entertaining addition to the Bad Dog series. She has introduced some fun side characters as well, giving us more fun and crazy antics to make this holiday story memorable.
If you love holiday movies, but wish they were funnier and spicier, this is the novella for you. The story between Bear and Rose starts in the Bad Dog novel, “Kind of a Sexy Jerk.” In this story, the reluctant lovers run into each other while stranded at an airport. Dirty antics ensue and kept me turning pages until the very end.
