They might fall in love—if they don’t kill each other first.

Charlie Hayes is desperate when she goes to win over a new client before her long-time rival can swoop in, and even more so after a snowstorm runs her car off the road and strands her in a small motel. When she’s forced to share the last available room with a sexy stranger, she thinks things might just be looking up. Too bad he isn’t exactly a stranger.

Ryder Carson can’t believe that the lawyer he’s been competing with for years is actually the same beautiful woman he’s sharing a room with, and what better way to pass the time than enjoying her warm and willing body? However, as he spends more time with her, he realizes she could be more than just a rival.

When the snow melts and real life—and their jobs—get in the way, they’ll have to choose between what they always thought they wanted…and the future they truly desire.

When everything you want is right in front of you, but it’s still out of reach…

Penny Wilson has a successful business, more friends than a girl could ask for, and a boyfriend she’s madly and passionately in love with.

Scott’s a keeper…as long as Penny doesn’t ever want to hear those three magical words that would take their relationship to the next level. Scott escaped abusive parents at seventeen and was forced to find his way alone in the world. Even though it’s been more than a decade and he’s reunited with his estranged sisters and built a good life in Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, he’s still tortured by his past. Penny knows he loves her with everything he has, but for a girl who wants a family and a guy who is afraid of having one, love might not be enough.

Resisting the sexy bad boy next door should be easy…shouldn’t it?

Tabby has spent her life following the rules and creating an orderly, regimented life. Nothing is out of place, from her landscaping, to her business, to her nonexistent love life. All that changes, however, when a tattoo-covered, motorcycle-riding bad boy moves in next door and throws her perfectly ordered life into chaos.

Gray has always been wild, a guy who values his freedom above all else. It’s left him with a string of one-night stands and no intention of ever getting tied down. But as soon as he meets his nerdy and uptight neighbor, he can’t deny how badly he wants to see her come undone. He doesn’t want forever, but a few nights can’t hurt.

The more time they spend together, the more the sizzling attraction between them grows. Even as they remind themselves it can’t go anywhere, both Tabby and Gray find themselves wondering…what if? Will they give up and go back to their own lonely lives, or will they risk it all and realize there’s a reason why opposites attract?
