Snowbound Seduction by Helen Brooks
Publisher: Harlequin Presents Extra: Christmas Surrender
Release Date: December 2010-12-15
Marketing Manager Rachel Ellington is recovering from a failed relationship. The last thing she’s interested in is finding another man. When her flatmate invites her cousin for dinner, Rachel tries to fight her attraction for the handsome, sexy, wealthy Zac Lawson, but she finds it beyond difficult.
Still reeling after the loss of his wife and son, Zac has a reputation for being a womanizer. After meeting Rachel, she’s all he can think about. He invites her for a Christmas weekend with friends. Against Rachel’s better judgment she decides to accept the invitation. The weather plays havoc with their plans and the couple finds themselves stranded in a snow storm. They use the time together to get to know each other better.
The sparks absolutely sizzle between these two as they try to overcome many obstacles including his living in Canada, while she lives in London. Not to mention his reluctance to get involved in a serious relationship and her not having any intentions of settling for a one night stand. With all their differences, Rachel is sure that this relationship is doomed before it even begins.
Snowbound Seduction is a sweet romance with some spice thrown in to make for a nice holiday romance. Zac and Rachel are two people readers can truly care about and cheer for. I prefer books with a bit more action to them, but this was a nice diversion.
