Nathan Rush is a small town man who has never dreamed of a bigger life.
Until, that is, the only surviving heiress of America's richest family lands on his doorstep. Nathan is the groundskeeper at Hollis House, the Valon family's upstate New York mansion just outside of Harlin Falls, the quiet, sleepy town he was raised in. He's an honest, hard-working man who wants nothing more than a beer and a hockey game on TV at the end of the night. Except, when the ice princess starts to melt, Nathan pictures his future in a way he never has before.
Camille Valon's life has taken place in the spotlight.
Until, that is, her parents are murdered in a mysterious Christmas Day fire. Now all she wants is to flee the prying news cameras and slow-moving investigation. She's an upper crust ice princess who is good at keeping everyone at arm's length. Grief-stricken and still fearing for her life, Camille arrives at her family's safe haven estate with secrets and a chip on her shoulder. What she didn't count on was the kind, ridiculously attractive man who caters to her every need.
As the months go by, and an impending threat grows closer to discovering Camille's location, the line between employer and employee becomes dangerously blurred. Nathan and Camille could be each other's saving graces, if only they'd put aside their visions of a perfect life and take the chance fate has put right in front of them.
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book. She loves spinning tales that include dapper men, women with attitude, and the occasional hunky athlete.
When she isn't in what her husband calls a "writing coma", Carrie is freeing up her jam-packed DVR, starting her latest DIY project, or planning her next travel adventure. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, who is more than happy to watch sports while his wife plots love stories.
I am a fan of Carrie Aaron's books. I think I have read almost all of them. I am a fan of the baseball series. When I saw she had a new book out, I was dying to read it. This is unlike her other books. A little darker and more mysterious.
Camille is a rich and sheltered young socialite who is escaping her life in upstate New York. Her parents were killed in a house fire and she is on someone's radar as their next victim. Without any family or friends to turn to, she hides n a place only few know about in NY. She has fond memories there and feels close to her parents.
Nathan has lived and worked for Camille's parents taking care of their house most of his life. His dad used to do the job before he passed. Nathan knows that he needs to treat Camille as a job and nothing more, but there is so much pain and loss in her eyes, he feels he needs to cross the line as employee and employer just to comfort her.
There is much more than friendship brewing between the two. Feelings and forbidden relationships seem to merge. Natan wants to keep Camille safe no matter what costs, even his heart.
