Colin Reeves, Tall Pines’ genuine bad boy is back for the holidays before he moves to
Paris. He still gets hives when he crosses the
Connecticut border, but he’s willing to suck it up for the holidays. How bad can it be?
His mother is nagging him about settling down and moving back home, he’s sharing a room with his nephew who won’t let him sleep until after midnight, and his niece wakes him up at the crack of dawn. And he thought he’d wanted to escape Tall Pines badly when he was a teen! When he finds out the ever-so-delectable Emily Stanfield turned her family home into a hotel, he’s more than ready to check in. Especially when he finds out she’s looking for a quick fling with an out of towner. Hey, he’s from out of town now, and he’s always had a thing for the Tall Pine’s poster child, this is the perfect solution for both their problems.
Or is it?
While the temperature drops outside, it’s nice and cozy in Emily’s bed. Colin is finding out it’s harder to leave Tall Pines than he thought. But
Paris is waiting, and outside Emily’s room, the rest of the town is getting on his nerves. Can he and Emily manage to find a way out of this dilemma, or will he be out in the cold?
