Description from Amazon.com:         

When a December Nor’easter roars up the eastern seaboard, Jewell Cove cop Todd Ricker spends his day off being a Good Samaritan to stranded holiday travelers. But when the roads close and Todd can’t make his way home, he discovers that the Evergreen Inn is full up. Until another Good Samaritan opens her doors and offers him a place to stay…

Lainey Price is not looking forward to Christmas, but just because she’s not filled with the holiday spirit doesn’t mean she’s going to turn Todd out into the stormy night. Even if it means offering the handsome police officer the couch in her tiny cottage. But when the weather takes a turn for the worse, the two are snowed in for a wintry evening by the fire. With Christmas only a few days away, can Todd convince Lainey to open her heart to the season…and love?


This novella is short, sweet and perfect to read during the hectic holiday season.  The characters are surprisingly well fleshed-out for a novella.  There is not a slow build to the romance, the H and h are instantly attracted to each other.  The setting is made for romance; snowbound with a roaring fire….yes! Donna Alward gives us realistic dialog, breathless love scenes and lots of Christmasy feeling.
