Adrian Blackstone built a million-dollar business with hard work and determination—and by remaining professional at all times. Denying his longtime attraction to his beautiful executive assistant hasn't been easy but it's necessary. She's indispensable, and he can't stand the thought of losing her if things didn't work out.
For more than a year, Rachel Carter has been quietly dreaming of all the ways she'll never seduce her sexy, buttoned-up boss. She's worked too hard to get where she is to cross that line, no matter how badly she'd like to act on her fantasies. But then a wicked snowstorm leaves them stranded in a romantic winter wonderland…
What begins as a single kiss and a few bad Santa jokes turns into a weekend full of breathless passion and hopes for something more. But with Monday comes a return to their complicated reality—and Adrian must prove that promises made are promises kept, especially at Christmastime.
I'm a sucker for a good employer/employee love story, and this one doesn't disappoint. It's always fun to watch two people who care about each other and already work so well together manage to make the terrifying leap off the cliff in the hopes of finding something amazing together on the other side. This was a short and spicy story of two people who finally get the chance to satisfy the urges they've felt towards each other for far too long, but are they ready to commit for more than a weekend? These are the questions that keep you
