Sophia Dane’s life is back on track. After losing her husband in a horrible accident, she’s finally in a happy place. She turned her grief, guilt, and — most of all — the resentment her husband’s family heaped on her after Bryce’s death, into motivation to open a boutique on Main Street in the small town of Christmas, Colorado. Ready to start anew and ring in the New Year with her friends, Sophie never expects to come face-to-face with her brother-in-law, Adam.

Coming home to Christmas was the last thing that Adam Dane wanted to do. But when he bumps into Sophia — his brother’s widow who he’s been in love with since…forever — he realizes that making the trip home was fate giving him a second chance. Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with him after the way his family treated her. Adam knows he has a lot of making up to do, but first, he needs to convince her to trust him — and his family — again.

Wedding bells are ringing in the charming town of Christmas, but not for Vivian Westfield.

But when she returns for a wedding, she stumbles on a story that could resurrect her career. First, though, she’ll have to deal with the handsome man standing in her way… and a still-burning flame that’s too hot to ignore.

Chance recognizes trouble when he sees it. He just didn’t expect to find it in the first-class cabin on the flight home for his father’s wedding. Yet there she is, as gorgeous as ever. Vivi dared Chance to want things he knew he could never have. It’s why he left her. But Christmas’s meddling matchmakers have them firmly in their sights. So if they want to survive the next week, they’ll have to play the part of an adoring couple—an irresistible charade that may give them a second chance at the real thing.
