‘You’re cold?’ he asked, his voice deep and low.

‘Freezing,’ she told him. ‘Even the radiator’s put its coat on.’

He laughed. ‘What about your fire? Is that not keeping you warm?’

‘What fire?’

His laugh got louder.

‘No, I’m serious, what bloody fire?’ She was indignant. ‘I haven’t got a fire. Have you got a fire?’

‘Yes, I have. A big orange one. It’s as hot as Hades in here.’

‘That’s not fair.’ She wanted to pout. ‘Where’s my fire?’

‘I could build you one up,’ he offered. ‘Are there logs in your room?’

‘There’s not even a fireplace.’ She shook her head, even though he couldn’t see her. ‘How come you get the hot room?’

‘I’m practically the laird. I get all the good stuff.’ His tone was enough to tell her he was teasing. Didn’t stop her from wanting to hit him. And kiss him.

Stop that right now.

She huffed. ‘I’m sending a complaint in tomorrow. Right to the top.’

‘They’ll be quaking in their boots, I bet,’ Lachlan said. ‘Pretty much like you are now.’

‘Shut up.’

‘Ah, you’re full of the one-liners tonight.’

‘It’s hard to think of one-liners when your whole body is succumbing to frostbite. Seriously, what kind of place is this? Why would they put me in this room when you have the fire?’

‘You want to swap?’ His offer sounded genuine. For a moment she imagined climbing into his bed. Would it still smell of him? Would she be able to feel where he’d been lying? Would it still hold his warmth?

‘No,’ she managed. ‘I’m fine.’

‘You’re not fine. You should come in here.’

‘But then you’ll freeze,’ she pointed out. ‘It’s fine, I can take it for one night. And after that all bets are off.’

‘Lucy, just get your butt in here. I’m your client, and that’s an order.’

She hesitated, not sure if she was turned on or appalled by his offer. In the end, good sense won out. ‘Good night, Lachlan. Sleep tight.’ Not waiting for his reply, she ended the call, and for good measure turned her ringer to silent.There was temptation, and then there was temptation. The only way to avoid it was to pretend it didn’t exist.

Release Day – A Winter’s Tale

A Winter’s Tale is Live!

Christmas comes but once a year… but true love lasts a lifetime

Struggling film student Kitty Shakespeare is as bad at interviews as she is talented at making films. She’s given herself until the end of the year to score an internship in LA, otherwise it’ll be back to London with her tail between her legs. Unfortunately the only job offer on the table is as nanny to major producer Everett Klein’s son, Jonas. It’s not exactly the career she’d hoped for, but if she can get this right, then surely he’ll take a moment to look at her work. However, what Kitty hasn’t allowed for is Everett’s sexy-as-hell brother, Adam – and love at first sight this is not.

Adam Klein may be sexy, but he’s also gruff, rude and completely impossible. All he wants to do hole up in his cabin and hide from the brother who destroyed his life. If only he could find it easier to ignore the way Kitty makes his heart race . . .

As Christmas approaches, Kitty and Adam realise that although the course of true love never does run smooth, just maybe, it’s more interesting that way…

A heartwarming Shakespeare Sisters Christmas romance from the bestselling author of Summer’s Lease and Fix You.

Exclusive Excerpt:

It felt good to be writing songs again—even if he was the only one who might ever hear them.

Well, he and Jolie.

When Corbin let it slip that he’d been writing, Jolie begged him to bring his guitar to the river the next afternoon.

“The fall leaves are beautiful,” Corbin said, gazing at the mountains in the distance.

“They are. And you’re stalling.”

He couldn’t deny it. Corbin had never been one to be nervous about sharing new songs, but for some reason, this seemed different. Important. Meaningful. Maybe because the inspiration for these songs was sitting right in front of him, with her long hair in a braid and her green eyes bright with excitement as she eagerly awaited whatever he was about to play for her.

But that wasn’t the only reason he was nervous.

“I have a confession to make, Jolie.”

She crossed her legs in front of her. “Okay.”

“These songs . . . they’re the most I’ve ever written . . . while sober.”

Jolie nodded in understanding.

“I mean, there’s a very good chance they’ll suck. I just want you to be prepared. And I want you to be honest if they are.”

“They won’t suck.”

“How do you know?”

“Because they won’t.”

Corbin sighed heavily and pulled his guitar out of its case. Her faith unnerved him, maybe because he was used to letting everyone down. The very last thing he ever wanted to do was disappoint her.

Jolie must’ve sensed his anxiety, because before he placed his fingers on the strings, she gently reached for his hand.

“Don’t be nervous. It’s just me.”

Corbin smiled and squeezed her hand. She had no way of knowing it, but these days, it was her opinion that mattered most.

Taking a deep breath, he attached the capo to the neck of the guitar and strummed a few strings to make sure it was in tune.

Then he started to sing.

One song effortlessly flowed into the next, with Corbin’s soft tenor voice echoing across the water. He kept his eyes closed or on his guitar the entire time, too afraid to see Jolie’s reaction to the music. It was only when he played the final note in his last song that he finally allowed himself a glance at the beautiful woman sitting in front of him.

Tears streamed down her cheeks.

“I know they’re rough,” he said, his voice shaking slightly as he placed his guitar back in the case. “I’m still struggling with the bridge in that last one. My fault, since I wrote it that way. I was thinking maybe I should cut it out completely or—”

“Corbin—”

“And in the first song . . . the chorus needs some work. I’m thinking maybe trying it in a different key or something. I don’t know.”

“Corbin James, shut up and listen to me.”

He took a steadying breath and gazed at her.

“I loved them,” she said softly.

“Yeah?”

“Every single word. Every single note.”

Corbin lifted his hand and trailed his fingers along her cheek, wiping her tears away. He heard her breath hitch in her throat as he leaned closer. He knew it was risky. Kissing her could ruin everything before it even had the chance to turn into something . . . something that might be incredible and wonderful and life changing.

It was a chance he had to take.

Not kissing her simply wasn’t an option.

Not anymore.

Jolie’s eyes fluttered closed as he cupped her cheek, letting his nose glide against hers. With a quiet sigh, her lips parted in silent invitation, and he couldn’t help but smile when he felt her tremble against him.

“This could change everything,” Corbin whispered, kissing the hollow just below her ear.

“I hope so.”

Their arms wrapped around each other, and Corbin buried his face against her neck, inhaling deeply and drowning in her sweet scent. She moaned softly, and it was that moan that finally broke him.

Corbin had every intention of kissing her gently, but her moan, combined with her hands pulling him impossibly closer, sent his body into overdrive, and they both groaned when his mouth hungrily captured hers. Frantic and sweet. Frenzied and tender. With quiet sighs and gentle whispers and warm arms that held each other tight, they laid back against the autumn grass and kissed until the sun disappeared behind the mountains.

Chloe Blake has a unique gift, an odd connection to her house that results in glimpses of the past, present, and future via the picture window in her living room. Unfortunately, it’s a gift that sometimes proves to be more of a curse. Especially when she tries to help out Ethan Reynolds, the gorgeous boy who lives across the street – an endeavor that, for some reason, always seems to backfire.
