Back Cover Blurb:
Bailey Moore has an agenda: skiing in the Rockies, exploring castles in Europe, ballroom dancing in Argentina. Now that she has a second lease on life, she's determined not to miss a thing. What she doesn't realize is that item #1 comes with a six-foot-one ski god hot enough to melt a polar ice cap. She doesn't want to miss out on him either, but Hudson Kincaid isn't the type of guy to love and let go. And as gorgeous as Cedar Ridge is, she's not planning to stick around.
As head of ski patrol at his family's resort, Hud thinks he's seen it all. But never has he run into someone like Bailey. She might look delicate, but her attitude is all firecracker. And her infectious joy touches something deep within him that he's been missing far too long. Now he'll just have to convince Bailey to take a chance on her biggest adventure yet . . . something rare and all kinds of wonderful.
I fell in love with both the main characters from the beginning. Seeing Hud come to grips with the full impact of his past added an extra level of drool-worthyness to this strong, sexy hero. Bailey’s need to stand on her own and experience life after what she’s been through was appealing. I loved how each of them were so well developed individually. The little tidbits of insight into their characters was so fantastic, giving a truly well rounded feel. And let’s not forget the loveable supporting cast that these two were surrounded by. They were such great individuals.
This story is simultaneously sweet, funny, hot, and emotionally hard hitting. It’s a complexly enjoyable tale that I could barely put down.
