Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Vivian Arend, a novella in the Six Pack Ranch world.

Finding white-hot love in a white-out...

Eight months ago, Lee Coleman met the woman of his dreams... then lost her to another man. He buried his disappointment by throwing himself into work on the family ranch, but when a winter storm leaves him stranded, Lee finds more than shelter in the rustic safety of a hunter's cabin - he finds a second shot at love.

Rachel Malone's heart has been broken and stomped on by her cheating ex, and she's determined to never fall in love again. But a rebound fling? Doesn't sound like such a bad idea, especially when she's snowed-in with a gorgeous, sweet-talking Coleman.

Despite their off-the-charts chemistry, Lee makes it clear he wants more than a temporary romp. In fact, he's made it his mission to put a smile back on her face, even if that means taking it slow and resisting the scorching heat between them. This time around, he wants forever, while Rachel is positive that forever is a fool's dream.

Lee can't wait to prove her wrong...

Didn’t hold my attention. Not enough story to go with all the sex. Could have been good

Go Cougars!

Cute, albeit short story. Gotta love those Coleman men! Lee and Rachel made a great couple despite their age difference and the twists and turns that got them to the end of the story made the book well worth the time to read it.

short but sweet...

short but sweet. It was nice to hear Lee's story, and it was just long enough. It was a simple story, so any longer would have made it too full of unnecessary filler. I normally like full length books better, but I was fine with the length of this.

Vivian Arend Novella-LOVE The Six Pack Ranchers

This book is near the end of the series... This review CONTAINS SPOILERS from earlier books.

In this short book we meet up with a brokenhearted Rachel, her husband of only a few months had been cheating on her. She left and plans to hide in a rustic cabin in the woods and sulk and cry about it - get it out of her system.

As she was gathering wood, at the edge of dark she saw a looming man coming at her. She was frightened and tried to get away until she hears one word, "Rachel?" With great relief she knew it was Lee Coleman. A man about eight years her junior who made it known he 'liked' her, always hitting on her in the restaurant where she worked.

Lee is stranded and a dangerous storm is bearing down. They have no other alternative than to share the tiny rustic cabin with only one bed.

While Lee wanted nothing more than to hop into bed with her, he made the decision to not do that, purposely. He wanted to get to know her and her him. He doesn't want to be the rebound guy and so they they play cards, talk, and...

When they are finally rescued from their cabin, real life began again. Lee is just as determined as he had been and Rachel, well Rachel didn't really know what was going on.

This is a charming short novella, sweet and we get to meet up with a few of The Six Pack Ranch-ers again, as this takes place over the Christmas holiday. Enjoy the journey with them…

Tatiana Sokolov is one of my favorite narrators. She is the only narrator for which I look at the lists of books she has narrated and choose from among them. Absolutely perfect for this material.

Creditworthy: Since this is a short story I chose to purchased it. Personal rule when spending my credits is that the book must be at least six hours long. It's a great book, just over four hours… If you are into the Six Pack Ranch series, it is a pleasant little addition.
