Summary

Five days after Christmas, like everyone else, Harley-Jane Arthur is broke. But, she has a plan. She'll use her artistic talents to sketch her way out of debt. With that in mind, she accepts a commission to entertain teenagers at an upscale kids' party. It's a good gig. She should earn enough money to pay her January utilities, put a down payment on a new barn roof, and buy a bottle of cheap merlot to toast New Year's Eve—alone.  
 
But, on the day of the party, the balmy weather turns to rain, which turns to sleet, then ice, then snow. Janie is stranded in town with no trains, planes, or Uber. While trying to claim the last taxi in sight, though she doesn't realize it, she witnesses a murder.  
Her luck changes when she loses her footing and skids down the icy road on her bottom. After she lands in the arms of her neighbor's brother, Cowboy Matthews, her frozen heart unexpectedly begins to thaw.  
 
Gable Matthews, a.k.a. Cowboy, has been waiting patiently for Harley-Jane to wake up from grieving for her husband. When she's stranded during a snowstorm, rescuing her provides him with an opportunity to move their relationship from his status as her go-to handyman into something a whole lot more romantic.  
 
The weather cooperates, leaving them snowbound together in Gable's apartment. In spite of the erratic furnace, sizzling passion keeps them warm. But lurking outside in the raging blizzard, a taxi-cab-stealing killer will do whatever it takes to silence one of the lovers inside.

    Come again? No, really come again. 
    Sweet, nerdy, lovable Keaton.  
    She's my best friend and has been for years. Sure she likes numbers and math, and thinks doing other people's taxes is fun. And I like ... none of that stuff. She's obsessed with her cat and reads novels I'll never understand, and yet we just click. There's no one I'd rather share breakfast burritos with or binge watch hours Netflix. She's my person. And so when she takes off her glasses and asks me to help her improve her skills in the bedroom, I barely have to think about it. 
    Of course I'll help her. There's no one better for the job.  
    I've been there for her through everything, why should this be any different?  
    But what happens when she's ready to take her new-found confidence and move on?

    USA Today bestselling author Gayle Callen creates an unforgettable story of mistaken identity and irresistible attraction in this first in a wonderfully engaging series set in the Scottish Highlands. 
    Shaken from sleep during the night and bundled off to the Highlands by a burly Scot, Riona is at first terrified, then livid. Hugh McCallum insists they were promised to each other as children to ensure peace between their clans. The stubborn laird refuses to believe he's kidnapped the wrong Catriona Duff. Instead, he embarks on a campaign of slow-burning seduction. 
    At first, Hugh cares only what their marriage can do for his people. Now he's starting to crave Riona for her own sake, but her true identity jeopardizes his clan's contract. And unless she chooses to risk all to be his bride, he'll lose the only thing he prizes more than the lands he's fought so hard to save—the passionate marriage they could have together.
