A brand new present-day romance from bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt. Filled with her signature charm, wit and red-hot romance, fans of Jill Shalvis, Kristen Ashley and Marie Force will love this! Small town cop Sam West certainly doesn't mind a routine traffic stop: speeding ticket, stern warning, and sayonara. With a whopper of a blizzard closing in, that's all he has time for. But the lawbreaker he pulls over is anything but typical. From her mile-long legs to her razor-sharp wit, Maisa Bradley is like nothing Coot Lake, Minnesota, has ever seen . . . and she's about to take Sam on the ride of his life. Whoever said blood is thicker than water probably wasn't related to a former Russian mobster. But an innocent mix-up and rumours of stolen diamonds soon have the Russian mob taking an unusual interest in the sleepy little town-and Maisa facing heated scrutiny from a certain tall, dark, and handsome deputy. Sam's dazzling blue eyes beg her to reveal all her secrets, but how much should she tell? Getting snowed in with the sexiest cop in the frozen north may not be the worst way to decide . . .'Hoyt's writing is almost too good to be true' Lisa Kleypas

It is a universal truth that a woman - especially an heiress - must be in desperate need of a husband. Lady Georgina Maitland is the exception. For her, spinsterhood has stood her in good stead, with a steady inheritance, a manor of her very own, and, of course, her independence. But to run a manor, she needs a steward. Everyone knows that servants have no gender - and really a land steward was just a superior sort of servant. It's just that Harry Pye, her new steward, is a man. A very nice looking man. And not sexless at all. In fact, it would have to be just the opposite. And can she help that the man has beautiful eyes and such nice hands? The only trouble is that everyone in the area is convinced that Harry is a killer - of sheep. It's just plain impossible to have a discreet affair when things keep getting in the way. With the farmer's livelihood being poisoned, the neighbouring landowner waiting to hang Harry, and three brothers on the warpath, it's all Georgina can do to keep her head above water - and Harry's out of the noose.

Secretaries are always male - never female - as Anna well knows but the real downfall of her career is the realisation that she is falling in love with Edward de Raaf - the Earl.

But when Anna's plan is revealed, a bit of blackmail is thrown into the mix, a proposal is rejected and even the Earl himself will be unprepared for the intrigues that ensnare them.
