Noah’s been alone for a long time. After Noah lost his parents when they were in killed in a devastating car crash, Noah had a teenage romance that was over almost before it began. The romance was a disaster, but it caused a good change; it spurred Noah and his brother, Clay, to turn their ranch into a large farm, small bed and breakfast, and one of the best therapeutic horseback riding programs in the country. Now Noah’s far too busy to leave the isolated Montana ranch to look for love. Then, a few days before Christmas, guests from Chicago come to stay for a holiday visit at the ranch.
As soon as Lore gets out of his rental car, Noah feels desire shoot through him with a force almost strong enough to knock him over. But Lore is the epitome of a well-educated city guy, and Noah’s a high school dropout cowboy who is rural down to his bones. Noah wants Lore, even though he’s a guest and off-limits. Noah’s smoldering desire for Lore warms the winter and Lore’s passion as a physical therapist adds to the attraction. Lore only came to get an idea of how Noah’s therapy works.
The chemistry between them is undeniable, and, for once, Noah’s going to live like there’s no tomorrow. As long as Noah keeps his eyes open, protects his heart, and doesn’t get in too deep, maybe it can be a really Merry Christmas.
