Rescued by the billionaire lumberjack…
Freezing on the side of a desolate mountain in a massive snowstorm.
Until a rugged man with an ax saves me.
Waking in his warm, comfortable bed leaves more than one question.
How did I get here?
Where are my clothes?
And who is this handsome recluse with striking dark eyes and a grumpy demeanor?
The answers only bring more mysteries.
He doesn’t want me here.
Doesn’t want his secrets exposed.
I don’t want him to know mine, either.
But there’s only so long we can deny this sizzling attraction.
Only so long until I learn the truth about my billionaire lumberjack and our pasts come back to haunt us.
Grab this steamy stand-alone about a billionaire in hiding, the photographer who stumbles upon him, and what happens when they’re trapped together during a major snow storm with building attraction and dark secrets!
I slide my arms under her small frame and easily lift her from the snow. Her dead weight settles against my chest, and a gust of wind batters us with a blast of icy flakes.
Memories come with it…swirling in my head the way the snow does around us.
Another body in my arms.
A hopeless struggle to survive.
The look of death staring back at me.
Clenching my jaw, I shake away the visions and concentrate on the moment. I need to get her warmed up and settled in at the cabin and get back out here for the firewood before it’s too bad out here for me to come to get it. While I’m used to the unpleasant weather here, it doesn’t mean I want to get stuck outside during shit like this.
And while all I may want is to disappear out here and pretend the rest of the world doesn’t exist, it seems fate has other plans. There’s no one else to help her.
The very real weight of the situation rests heavily on my shoulders, and I glance down at the limp body in my arms.
It’s been so long since I’ve seen a woman, I almost forgot how beautiful they are. Soft, pale skin, perfect bow lips, thick, dark lashes spread across her wind-reddened, high cheekbones. It almost makes me miss being part of the world.
But the slightly blue tint to her lips and a big shake of my head bring me back to reality.
Get out of your fucking head and get moving, asshole.
The snow isn’t going to let up anytime soon, and it will only get worse the longer I stand here staring at this poor woman like a fucking idiot. That’s what happens when someone lives alone for as long as I have—I get lost in my own head too long with no way out.
I set out through the growing drifts toward the cabin, fighting the brutal wind and biting snow with each step. By the time it comes into view on the other side of the clearing, it’s practically a white-out. There’s no way she would have survived or been able to find the cabin if she hadn’t stumbled upon me.
It may already be too late.
All I can do now is try to warm her up and hope the sheriff can get up the mountain to bring her to the clinic in town for real treatment before we’re completely snowed in.
