Book Description:

To college student, Katie Brandt, ‘Home for the Holidays’ sounds like hell. When her parents separated, their holiday traditions shattered like a dropped ornament. What could be worse than celebrating Christmas with her suddenly single mom and mom’s new boyfriend? Alex Walker, an engaged 20-year-old, dreads going home for his own reasons. He has a daunting task ahead of him and wishes he could skip the holidays altogether. So when a friend of a friend needs a ride north, Alex finds that having beautiful Katie seated by his side proves to be just the distraction he needs.  A simple ride home for Christmas turns into a nightmare when light snow rages into a full-scale blizzard. Katie and Alex find themselves stranded, and a vacant cabin becomes a haven from the storm.  Under different circumstances, time alone with Alex would be the ultimate Christmas gift, but Katie knows Alex is engaged and she must hide her growing attraction. However, Alex harbors a secret that just might change this holiday from the worst Christmas ever, to the best.

Excerpt #1

Snowed Over ~ Two college kids, a snowstorm, and an empty cabin. Alex slowed to take the turn. “River Road hasn’t been plowed.” The truck fishtailed as he took the corner. “Whoa, don’t do that!” Katie gripped the dash. “Sorry.” Alex peered out at the deep, unmarred snow before them. Someone had driven by from the other direction not too long ago; he used their tire treads to help guide the way. “So where’s the river?” Katie peered into the darkness with nothing but snow flying all around. “I don’t know. I’ve never been this way before. It could be right next to us for all I know. I can barely see the road.” He gripped the steering wheel and peered through the mesmerizing snow. “At this rate, you’re going to end up staying the night with me at camp dysfunctional. Ha!” she taunted, sounding more nervous as they neared her destination. “You’d like that, wouldn’t you? To make me suffer alongside you?” He might not mind staying at her place. The closer he got to home, the more he dreaded his task ahead. “Anything to save me from facing Mom and Not the Boyfriend alone. I feel like I’m going to death row, not celebrating Christmas. How messed up is that?” “Pretty messed up, but isn’t that what the holidays are about? Forcing families to spend time together so they can be reminded how odd everyone is.” “Look out!” she yelled. He snapped his head forward. A deer stood in the middle of the road, staring transfixed at the headlights. The truck careened forward. “Shit!” He slammed on the brakes. Unable to get any traction, the truck slid, turning sideways. The four-wheel drive was useless in the deep snow. Alex turned the steering wheel to keep the tires pointed forward. He laid on the horn. The deer bolted. He struggled to get the truck under control. A second deer ran across their path. This one wasn’t so lucky. Alex had no choice. The truck clipped the deer’s hindquarter and sent them spinning. The truck turned like a Tilt-a-Whirl, and with the heavy snow falling, he had no idea which direction was forward, or if they were about to hit a tree. “Hang on!” The truck careened off the road, back end first, then turned sideways. He felt sure the truck would flip. He thrust his right arm out to hold Katie in place. Each nanosecond passed in slow motion. The truck bounced down a steep embankment, turning forward and finally sliding to a halt. Then Katie screamed like he’d never heard anyone scream before. The headlights revealed rushing water splashing at the front of the truck. They were in the river.
