When a snowstorm forces two working-friends together in this small town, one night might blossom into something more than either ever expected.
Pam Carter loves all things bright and beautiful, but as manager of the local gardening center and moonlighting as a personal assistant, life isn’t always blooming lilacs.
Especially when she has a crush on the one man she shouldn’t…the ruggedly handsome, horror writer she assists. His demons haunt more places than the page, but she doesn’t scare easily.
Jacob Vincent loves all things dark, especially his home – a mansion in the woods. His Elk Lake City retreat brings inspiration but also temptation in the form of his curvy, quiet, and hardworking assistant. She’s fun to flirt with but he knows his limits.
Love doesn’t exist within his black heart, but could he be persuaded to turn the page for a new adventure?
When a shadowed heart clashes with blooming desire, love fights to be set free.
Author note: An author in the woods, his feisty assistant and a snowstorm cause this office romance to melt ice in this small town.

I’ve been accused of having an over-active imagination.
To my benefit, this imagination has created over twenty novels, including the creation of a small-town world (Sensations Collection), rock star mayhem (Legendary Rock Star series), MMA chaos (Paradise Stories), rom-com for the over forty (The Sex Education of M.E.), and a suspenseful island for redemption (The Island Duet). My alter ego, elda lore, creates magical romance through mythological retellings (Modern Descendants).
My life revolves around a deep love of reading about fairy tales, medieval knights, regency debauchery, and strong alpha males.
I love a deep belly laugh, a strong hug, and an occasional margarita. My other loves include being mother to four grown children and wife to the one and only.
