Cue the butterflies...
Once upon a wintery week away...
Author Verona Scott is battling heartbreak, both personally and professionally. Coming off a disastrous split with her ex, she's struggling for inspiration to write her next book. And she's lost without her favorite Aunt Theoni's wisdom and guidance.
Hoping to avoid the approaching holiday completely and get the peace and quiet she needs to refocus and pen her latest novel, she's planned a Valentine's detox: a luxurious trip alone to the historic Courtington Castle hotel, tucked into a picturesque valley of the Adirondacks, near the charming small town of Camelot Creek.
But escaping the heart-shaped balloons and red roses won't be nearly as simple as she thought, when she ends up walking into one of the biggest matchmaking events of the year.
Heading the whole thing up is dashing single dad and celebrity dating-coach Troy Turner, and he's on a mission to include Verona in the festivities. In the midst of a professional crisis of his own, after a bit of unfounded bad press, the very last thing Troy needs is a guest casting doubt in the minds of his attendees.
Against the cozy backdrop of crackling fires and a magical winter wonderland, will Troy reawaken Verona's dreams for the most romantic day of the year? And just as sparks begin to fly, when an unexpected visitor checks into the castle, stirring up the past, will the pair's once-upon-a-time last beyond the holiday?
"This book is guaranteed to leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling that will carry you well beyond the holiday and into the next one."
"An absolutely sparkling debut! Visually stunning writing, full of heart and hope. Emma Lynden is a wonderful new force in sweet romance. I can't wait to see what she writes next!"
