Emerald Mountain Ski Hut Caretaker Morgan Monroe doesn't do casual relationships. Not anymore. Certainly not with the obnoxious, flirty, too-hot-for-his-own-good chef she's wanted to strangle all season. He's the kind of man she wouldn't date in a million years, even if he were the dating type.
Chef Dan Griffin doesn't believe in relationships. But a one-night stand to celebrate the end of ski season? Hell yes! Especially with the gorgeous caretaker. She's sexy but melt-in-your-mouth sweet, the kind of woman who could convince a man to get serious…if he were the relationship type. She kept her distance all winter, but he's hoping he can convince her to get closer for one night of passion.
When things heat up on a cold winter's night, will they play it safe or follow their hearts?

IT APPEARS THAT OPPOSITES MIGHT ACTUALLY BE ATTRACTED TO EACH OTHER
You probably could never find two more diametrically opposed individuals than the two individuals Stacy Gold has created for this book; two individuals who came to work at the Emerald Mountain Ski Hut one skiing season.
On one hand you've got Morgan Monroe who has the caretaker who's essentially running the show at the ski hut; making sure everyone who comes there is taken care of. Morgan's the type of woman any man would simply drool over if they could only make her their own. While many women could see themselves having a relationship with any cool hunk that should happen to come by, just so they'd wouldn't be lonely; for Morgan, if it isn't going to be a serious relationship, the guy needs to just go away and find someone else to screw around with.
On the other hand, you've got Dan Griffin, who has far as committed relationships are concerned, they don't even exist; for he's only basically interested in one-nights with any woman who's willing to have him for that night. And even though he might be a hot hunk, Dan's overly eager tenacity to get Morgan into his pants, he comes off as being quite intolerable; a quality in a man which causes her to totally ignore him as if he was the plague.
Yet, just like the most popular girl in high school allowing herself to be seen with the most nebbish boy at her school at the end of the school year, Morgan lets Dan to have his long-sought desire to be with her at the end of the skiing season.
If you can remember at the end of the movie "Animal House" how the women of the sorority come to realize that love with a nerd can be far more satisfying than the ones they've been having with the sanctimonious members of another fraternity and football team. Then you can wonder whether the same thing will happen as Morgan spends a night in bed with lover boy Dan. Will Morgan come to realize Dan's not as half as bad as she's made him out to be? Can Morgan see herself spending the rest of her life with him? Will Morgan remain sexually passive during this night, or will she play it loose allowing everything to happen naturally and without any of her inhibitions getting in the way of her being with Dan?
Gold's steamy writing is such that it can warm the cockles of a reader's heart and possibly having them wet their panties. The remoteness of the ski cabins, the coldness and snow make for a cozy environment for romance to take place.
For having given her readers a story which shows love could actually take place with a co-worker one might abhor, I've given Ms. Gold the 5 STARS she's getting from this reviewer.
