She hides behind her broken heart...
The last thing Natalie needs in her life is a handsome-as-sin single father living right next door. What she wants to do is shun the world and embrace her broken heart. She regrets snapping at his little girl over something as silly as Christmas lights, but nothing in the world will change her mind about taking part in holiday hoopla or letting a cherub, or her sexy father, into her life.
He doesn't want to feel that tug of attraction for his hot, snarky neighbor...
Zach's decision to ignore his snarky, smoking-hot new neighbor is an easy one, even if he feels a tug of regret he won't get to know her better. He wants nothing to do with a woman who would snap at his little girl over something as trivial as decorating for the holiday.
Neither are prepared for hearts tripping and emotional barriers falling when Zach snatches her from the flames engulfing her home and ends up tucking her into his spare bedroom. Little does he know his ability to play nothing more than caretaker until she's back on her feet is nothing more than smoke and mirrors.
Will holiday hearts awaken to passion and new love, or will Zach and Natalie let this chance at new love pass them by?
BIOGRAPHY Fiola loves to craft sexy romantic stories, both in the contemporary and paranormal world. She grew up a devout tomboy, tackling every tree on the block back when Silicon Valley wasn’t even a gleam in San Jose’s eyes.
She hits life full-tilt, from barrel-racing her Appaloosa as a teen to surf-fishing in Hawaii to walking barefoot on the beach and dreaming of romance. When she travels, she’s always on the lookout for that next story, that next place to bury the body. Or lock lips with a hunky, handsome man and garner even more fantasies for her characters.
Who knows, maybe she’ll find her own HEA outside of the covers of her books. She kicks-ass and takes-names in beautiful but weird Portland, Oregon, residing with her amazingly talented son and daughter-in-law and their most affectionate cat Nudge.
Visit Fiola from time to time in her virtual corner of the world, where sexy men and women misbehave while she weaves them into stories. See what she’s been up to, maybe drop her a line! While you’re at it, pop over to visit her alter-ego, Gemma Blake at gemmablake.com.
