Baby, it’s cold outside, but it’s steamy hot with this trio of winter romances. From daddies-to-be in the making to those who just like lots of practice, get ready to fog up the cabin windows and maybe laugh out loud too.
The night Maggie crashes into the ditch outside the cabin where I’m hiding out is the night that changes my life. She doesn’t know I’m secretly a rockstar. I’m just her big bad wolf, and she’s my little Red Riding Hood…who ends up pregnant with my baby.

And now we keep meeting in the kitchen in the middle of the night, because he’s got a secret and it’s not just his large…eggplant. Though I’ve grown rather fond of that too.
Eggplant cheesecake is a thing, right? No? Darn.
But Ransom isn’t about fun and games when my safety is at risk, so we need to figure out who this person is so we can get down to other vitally important matters….

I wasn’t looking for my very own Cinderella…but I found her.
Braking too fast when it’s snowing? Bad.

To whom it may concern: I quit.Preston Michael Shaw.
PMS, as I like to call him.
I don’t need his job. I don’t need his fancy designer suits or his arrogance or his claims that I put a hex on him, because of course a strong, empowered woman needs to put a spell on a man.
As if I want him.
