Iâ€™m so excited about the release of MAYBE THIS
CHRISTMAS, the latest book in my Oâ€™Neil Brothers series (each story
stands alone so donâ€™t worry if you havenâ€™t read the other two). The hero, Tyler
Oâ€™Neil, is the bad boy of the three brothers. Heâ€™s a medal winning ski racer and
was one of the best in the world until an accident brought an abrupt end to his
career. Heâ€™s also a single dad and now heâ€™s back in the mountains where he grew
up, helping to run the family business, Snow Crystal Resort, while raising his
Tylerâ€™s fearless, adventurous nature makes him one of the sexiest heroes Iâ€™ve
written. As well as having nerves of steel, heâ€™s supremely fit, confident and a
natural athlete. All that powerful thigh muscle, developed from skiing near
vertical slopes at speeds of up to 90 miles and hour, means his jeans regularly
have to be reinforced along the seams.
My heroine Brenna has been friends with him since childhood and is one of the
few people who can keep up with him on the slopes. Sheâ€™s been in love with him
her whole life and is all too aware of Tylerâ€™s physical attributes. In this
scene she is watching a recording of him skiing with his daughter, Jess. While
Jess is analyzing her dadâ€™s ski technique, Brenna is eyeing all that turbo
â€śYouâ€™ve had it on pause for about five minutes.â€ť Jess took the
remote from her hand. â€śWhat are you looking at?â€ť
She was looking at him. At the determination in that jaw. At the ski suit molded
to every contour of his hard, powerful body.
â€śLook at his position,â€ť Brenna croaked, â€ślook at the balance, look at the line
he took and how close he is to the gate.â€ť Look at those shoulders, those thighs,
the look of fierce concentration on that insanely handsome face.
And look at me make a complete fool of myself.
Poor Brenna could be forgiven for finding it hard to concentrate on Tylerâ€™s
technique on the slopes when sheâ€™s watching him. Unlike football players, skiers
donâ€™t wear protective padding. The ski suit is designed to be aerodynamic and
reduce drag at high speeds. Itâ€™s sleek and close fitting, which means that every
dip and curve of hard, honed muscle is visible to the spectator.
Brenna has plenty of opportunity to study those muscles up close when a sudden
flurry of snow attracts hoards of winter visitors to Snow Crystal and sheâ€™s
forced to vacate her lodge and move in with Tyler. Instead of keeping that body
safely tucked away beneath an all weather jacket, heâ€™s lounging round the house
in sweats and a T-shirt and stripped to the waist while chopping wood. All that
half naked interplay generates enough heat between them to melt all the snow in
Vermont and tests Tylerâ€™s determination not to cross the line between friends
I love this couple so much and giving them the ending they deserve was so much
fun. I hope reading about them heats up your winter!
