Summary

Ever since Tessa Wainwright moved into the rundown bungalow next door, Hale Lindstrom has been captivated by the smart and lovely college student. His busy plumbing business helps him keep a responsible distance, but she seems alone in the world, so he lends a hand when he can. His plan works fine, until he accidentally hits her with a snowball and learns she isn’t the kid he assumed. Their tumble into love brings happiness, but he’s got a secret he’s determined to conceal from Tessa at all costs. 
After frustrating years of planning and saving, Tessa is pursuing her dream of a literature degree. Shy, sexy Hale is a serious temptation, but her goals leave no room for romance, and she’s done with men trying to fix her life. Despite her resolve, a polar vortex, a goofy dog, and an irresistible guy are rewriting her carefully outlined future. Maybe falling in love is an unavoidable plot twist, but can she risk her hard-won independence, heart, and dreams of a happy ending on a man who’s keeping secrets?

    Fate is just a made-up word used to give us hope or absolution. We find hope when we believe bad things happen to us for a reason. We find absolution when we feel as though the wrongs of our past were just fate’s twisted design to bring us to our present, and all of it was out of our hands. 
     Of course, I sort of change my mind after meeting Axle. The man with scars and haunted, cold eyes. The man who only warms when he is around me. The first man I believe won’t cost me my life. The first man I’ve ever believed to actually be honorable, despite the fact he’s a ruthless criminal. 
    Only the craziest of fates could have put us in the paths of each other. More of a collision course, really. 
    Life gets complicated. Shit happens. And I sort of fall harder than I thought possible. 
    The first time we met, I was in my pajamas and cowering on the floorboard of his SUV, hiding from my very insane brother. Lovely first impression, I assure you. 
    The second time we met, I was literally skating around a bunch of corpses, because I’m slightly crazy like that. Long story. 
    Obviously my second impression had just as much impact as my first. Because he fell head-over-heels in love with me in that instant. 
    Kidding. That last part is complete bullshit. Axle is far more complicated than insta-love nonsense. Which is one of my favorite things about him. 
    Everything about us is perfectly complicated and wonderfully disastrous. 
    It’s what every girl dreams of…as long as they’re as crazy as I am. 
    And I’m just crazy enough to hold on, because I don’t mind being the psycho chick in roller skates, who is flipping fate the bird when it tries to intervene again. It’s just one of my quirks. Turns out, I’m Axle’s brand of crazy too. 
    Life should be really freaking interesting. Or catastrophic. Or psychopathic. 
    I guess it depends on how much madness you can embrace.

    Sophie Beckett never dreamed she'd be able to sneak into Lady Bridgerton's famed masquerade ball—or that "Prince Charming" would be waiting there for her! Though the daughter of an earl, Sophie has been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother.

Alas, she knows all enchantments must end when the clock strikes midnight. 
    Who was that extraordinary woman?

Yet, if he offers her his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love?
