Historical Romance / Christmas
Released: October 2013
Lady Amelia Witherspoon simply must get home to her beloved family on Christmas Eve. So when a terrible storm threatens to leave her snowbound, she refuses to admit defeat-even if that means sharing a carriage with Evan Cameron, the last man she ever hoped to see...
Evan can't fathom why his oldest friend is as icy to him as the winter wind. All he does know is that Amelia is still the loveliest, most tempting woman he's ever laid eyes on. Their only option is to take refuge together at a nearby inn, sharing the one remaining room. Evan promises to be a gentleman...but it's a promise neither of them wants him to keep.
This was a short, sweet story about how a misunderstanding can lead to animosity and lost chances. When Amelia overhears something out of context from Evan, she's both hurt and humiliated. She vows to stay away from him, even if it breaks her heart. Fast forward to years later, when they run into each other by chance. She's unwilling to give him the time of day, but a snowstorm forces them to share a room. There, the admissions come out, and the healing can begin. I loved how the emotions from the characters came through loud and clear, and although it was a short story, it seemed to be just the right length for these two.
