Krista Novak knows you can't go home again. Yet here she is, touching down in the place she left for good eight years ago. Even though it's only for the holidays, being back means facing Alex Costas. It also means dealing with the fallout from his decision to stay and her decision to move her life thousands of miles away. To make the situation…
She can’t decide whether to kiss him or argue with him.
Michelle Germaine can take care of herself and her twelve-year-old son, thank you very much. She had a man in her life, and it didn’t work out so well. She doesn’t need another, especially someone like Chase Fletcher, who’s as infuriating as he is sexy.
From the moment they’re called to the principal’s office to stop their sixth-graders from battling, they clash.
It’s not like Michelle and Chase would ever get romantically involved, anyway. Chase is in the market for a domestic goddess who will help smooth his daughter’s rough edges. Michelle is squarely focused on her real estate career.
So why can’t they stay away from each other?
