From USA TODAY bestselling author Christie Ridgway comes a
sparkling new series set in the California mountains, where
Hollywood glamour meets rustic charm, and the sparks fly
among the unlikeliest of couplesâ€¦
Poppy Walker has a plan to restore the family resort, and
she's sticking to it. So when a good-looking guy with plenty
of cash rents one of her half-repaired vacation cabins, she
figures he's just what the handyman ordered. But when a
storm blows through, it takes down some trees, her roof and
thenâ€¦her self-control. Even though she's been burned before
by a wealthy passer-through, she can't stay away from the
brooding but gorgeous stranger in the bungalow next door.
Former teen idol turned Hollywood exec Ryan Hamilton wants a
private place in which to endure his very personal
heartbreak. Finally, at this rustic mountain cabin, he has
all the seclusion one man could wantâ€”until sparks begin to
fly with his sexy, formerly chilly landlady. By the time the
weather dies down, they're both hot, bothered and certain
they're still wrong for each other. But there's no telling
how they'll face the new storm brewing on the horizonâ€¦.
