Exclusive Snippet:

“You’re staying over?” Owen couldn’t help interrupting, all but bouncing at his good fortune.

“Yeah. It’s only a little over an hour drive in when weather’s decent, but Hattie and I had plans. Didn’t make sense to turn around again early tomorrow.”

“Me too. I just arrived in the state yesterday, actually. We should get dinner together.” He kept his voice casual, aiming for the same pragmatic tone Quill had used. And because while he was totally an opportunist, he wasn’t also rude, he gestured at Nancy. “You could come too.”

“Thanks, but I’ve got plans with a friend,” she said softly.

“Ah. Well, you and me then,” he said to Quill. “Better than eating alone, right?”

“Excellent idea.” Hattie squeezed Quill’s shoulder. “I’ll feel better staying with Val if I know you’ve got company.”

Quill was silent a long minute, some sort of unspoken conversation happening between him and Hattie. Finally, he sighed. “Guess that would be okay.”

Owen would happily work with his underwhelming enthusiasm. Some time alone with Quill? Huge win and great opportunity to find out whether all those sparks of energy he’d been feeling were one-sided. At worst, he didn’t have to eat alone in a strange city. At best… Well, at best, there were other things he might not have to do alone too, and simply thinking about that made his muscles hum pleasantly. Sure, it might only end up being a shared meal with a reluctant dinner partner, but the chance that it could be something more was one Owen had to take.

About the Book:

A lasting connection needs more than simply surviving a winter together—they’ll have to outsmart danger, let down their defenses and open their hearts.

Owen Han has a fresh lease on life—he’s kicked cancer’s ass and is roaring through his bucket list. The former investment banker hopes to find his next challenge in Alaska, volunteering alongside park rangers and fulfilling his childhood dreams of snowy winters and rustic life. Of course, those dreams did tend to feature big strapping mountain men in vivid detail…

Ranger Quilleran Ramsey would like to be anywhere other than dealing with newbie volunteers. And really, the only thing he needs less than a green volunteer “partner” is the flirty attentions of a buff city boy who doesn’t look ready to last a week, let alone an Alaskan winter. They’re all wrong for each other, even if Quill’s traitorous body enjoys the flirting more than it should.

As the weeks pass, the two snowbound men give in to temptation. But can their seasonal romance last until spring? For them to have a future together, each will have to trust the other…while hoping that the harsh elements and omnipresent dangers don’t destroy what happiness they’ve found in the moment.
