He resists putting down roots. Fear keeps her planted in place. By opening their hearts, they could offer each other the world.

Nina Pettit left behind fame and trauma when she moved from Boston to Polaris, Utah. She changed her last name and went into hiding to enjoy a quiet life. Instead of performing on stage as a professional cellist, she now teaches music to children. When a handsome traveling private duty nurse arrives to care for Nina’s elderly neighbor, she finds herself drawn to the charming man.

Colin Moynahan’s rough boxing days are long behind him. His job as a private duty nurse allows him to travel the world. While working in Polaris, he’s introduced to Nina, and an attraction ignites. As he learns about her past, he promises to care and protect her for as long as his temporary stay in Polaris allows.

But when innocent flirtation turns to deeper feelings, the lines between them blur. Colin has resisted establishing roots while Nina’s fear keeps her firmly planted. As threats to Nina reappear in the form of the man she’d help send to jail, Colin returns to fighting mode, willing to sacrifice it all for the woman he loves.

 Picking up her pace, Nina walked up to the front door. She knocked twice, then waited. The sound of quick footsteps alerted her that Bea was not the one who would open the door, which earned the new nurse a point of favor in her mind. The less walking Bea did, the better. At least until after she healed from her hip replacement.

The front door swung open, and Nina planted a smile on her face and raised her gaze. At the sight of Colin Moynahan, she blinked. Wait. What was he doing inside Bea’s house?

“Well…hello again.” He lifted his eyebrows. “You must be the pretty neighbor Mrs. Maxwell was just telling me about.”

His grin sent electric pulses across her skin. “What are you doing here?” She stepped past him and into the living room. “Bea, where is your private nurse?”

Bea chuckled and pointed to Colin. “Sweetie, you’re looking at him.”


What a wicked bit of good fortune. Colin’s gaze swept over the woman he hadn’t stopped thinking about since yesterday at the bakery. Today, she looked more relaxed, in jeans, a baggy hoodie, and dirt-stained hiking boots.

She stopped on the entry mat, untied her boots, and slipped them off one at a time. “This man is not a nurse.” Her narrowed eyes glared at him.

Colin ignored her snippy tone, as well as the finger pointed in the direction of the door. Instead of being offended, he was amused. Colin took out his wallet and retrieved a business card, and then handed it to her. “I have a master’s degree in nursing with a specialty in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts Boston. Along with some training in physical therapy. For the past eight years, I’ve worked for a company called Health Shield as a private duty nurse.”

'A beautiful story of loss and new love, set in a snow-capped mountain ski resort town.'

Celia Batista waited a long time for all three of her sons to be together for Christmas. But after one of her identical twins disappears without a trace, Celia must rely on Police Captain Luke Veldkamp for help. Despite Luke’s accusations that her other twin son is involved with organized crime, she falls for the handsome, Stetson wearing cop.

Luke Veldkamp is facing his first Christmas after the loss of his wife, working nonstop to avoid the holidays and his grief. His daughter, who’d moved home to care for her mom before her passing, pushes him to face his pain. Luke pushes back, telling her to return to college and regain her own life. If his own strife isn’t enough, the mission to locate the missing son of his beautiful neighbor grows more personal than any other case.

While Luke and Celia fight to keep their families from falling apart, they find comfort and strength in one another. And when love blooms between their children, Luke and Celia’s own relationship takes root and grows. But Celia is used to living on her own terms, and loving a man who has isolated his heart is a risk too great. Now, Luke must either confront his emotions or face a life without the woman he’s come to love.
