HAPPY EVER AFTER IN CHRISTMAS
Christmas, Colorado #7
Releasing June 28th, 2016
It's beginning to look a lot like love . . .
As her thirtieth birthday approaches, Deputy Jill Flaherty decides it's time to live a little. When she walks into Sawyer Anderson's bar in her sexiest dress, she's not thinking that he's her brother's best friend or about the many women he dated during his years as a pro hockey player. All she's thinking is that it's finally time to confess to her longtime crush how she truly feels.
Sawyer is done being a player on and off the ice. Yet no one in the small town of Christmas seems to believe he's ready to settle down, not Jill, and certainly not Jack, who is determined to keep Sawyer from breaking his little sister's heart. But as Sawyer and Jill's relationship heats up, can he prove that he's her happy ever after?

Sawyer was mixing a martini when the lady in red walked into the bar. Women walked in and out of his bar all the time, but there was something about this one that held his attention. And it wasn't her exceptional long legs in the red stilettos or the way the fabric of the dress she wore clung to her body and emphasized her curves. She seemed familiar.
But there's no way he'd forget that face. She wasn't a typical beauty. She was exotic-looking, stunning. Her cheekbones were high and sharp, a slight bump on the bridge of an aquiline nose, her lips full, her chin strong. He'd always had a thing for blondes, but she had him rethinking his preference. Her bold features were framed by long, raven-black hair.
As though she sensed him watching her, she lifted her startling blue gaze. It felt like he'd tossed back a shot of Absinthe; his world tilted, a fire spreading inside. The reaction wasn't one he'd experienced in a while. Lately he'd being going through the motions. Flirting enough to keep the ladies happy, but not enough to give them hope for more. He was tired of one-night stands and meaningless relationships. He was on the other side of thirty-six and ready to settle down. But he hadn't met a woman who interested him. This one did.
His years behind the bar had made him something of an expert on people. He was good at sizing them up. If he had to take a guess, he'd say by the definition in her arms and legs, the lady in red was in great shape, confident in her ability to take care of herself. But maybe not so confident with the social scene. There was a wary tension in the way she held herself. He'd noticed it when she looked around the bar. He'd also seen the sharp intelligence in her eyes. She was nobody's fool. Intrigued, he cocked his head and smiled at her. He wanted to know more.
She responded to his obvious interest with a startled blink, and her cheeks flushed. His smile widened at the hint of nerves. He was right. At least he hoped he was. He'd be disappointed if she ended up being like the women he met lately. Women like Tiffany who didn't have a clue about the game he loved or were more interested in talking about themselves and their latest shopping expedition.
He slid the martini down the bar to his waiting customer, then glanced back at the lady in red. He raised a questioning eyebrow, nodding to the empty seat at the end of the bar. Sheer panic crossed her face, and she looked ready to bolt. Okay, that wasn't a reaction he was accustomed to. And he was surprised by the level of disappointment he felt at the thought she planned to leave. When she grabbed Ty by the hand, half-dragging him toward the bar, Sawyer released a relieved breath.
He smiled when she plunked herself down on the stool and said, "Hi."
She lifted her chin. "Hey, Sawyer."
His jaw dropped. That was Jill's voice coming from the lady in red's mouth. A woman who intrigued him, a woman who he'd been fantasizing about sounded like his best friend's baby sister.
