Sammie Troy just can’t deal with her life anymore, so she sells all she’s got, leaves her fiancé, and buys an RV. But when the runaway bride parks her truck in front of a small town bar the last thing she’s expecting is Leo Bonham.
Butch, sexy, and older, Leo is everything that Sammie has never wanted. Not least because she’s female. And Leo isn’t too pleased about meeting Sammie either. She’s off relationships for good, and anyway, that huge RV is deterring customers.
Sammie’s too straight, too young, and too beautiful for Leo’s taste. And Leo’s too broken, too stubborn, and too old for Sammie’s games. And yet the bubbling excitement between them can’t be denied.
It should have been just a stop on the road, just another customer, but somehow their lives got tangled together. Right up until one cuts the other free. An escape story turned into a romance, which turned into a tragedy. And the only way to get a happy ending is to leave the past behind…
Everyone knows personal trainer Blayke Bell’s family are obsessed with Christmas. The tree goes up at the start of November and there’s always a long list of festive activities planned. To Blayke, Christmas is the best time of year and she can’t wait to start celebrating.
Beauty therapist Zanthie Brown has only been in town for a little over a year and with no family and very few friends, is set to spend another Christmas alone. If anyone asks, she’ll tell them she doesn’t mind, because the truth is, she’s never actually had the opportunity to celebrate a proper Christmas, and although she secretly yearns to take part in the holiday season, she certainly doesn’t want to be pitied.
When Blayke and Zanthie’s worlds collide, Blayke makes it her mission to pull together a Christmas checklist to ensure Zanthie experiences a Christmas she’ll never forget. Between ice skating, hot chocolate, baking cookies and tree decorating, sparks start to fly but there’s a problem. Everyone knows you shouldn’t date your best friend’s ex and Zanthie is Blayke’s friend and work colleague Lana’s ex-girlfriend.
Join Blayke and Zanthie as they try to fight their growing feelings in this festive romance.
