A little mix-up…
Could make her Christmas wonderful!
Natalie Weiss is mortified. After mistaking handsome Tanner Rockford for his cousin, she’s followed him to rural Alaska. Now she’s stranded—until Tanner invites her to spend Christmas with his family in their rustic, cozy cabin. But in this idyllic winter wonderland, Natalie discovers the family she’s never had…and the love she never knew she needed. But what happens when they all discover why she’s really there?

EXCERPT! SNEAK PEEK!
Tanner’s voice held out little hope, but he led her toward the blue cabin. The inexpertly painted sign over the door read “Red’s Stuff.” Tanner held the door open so Natalie could enter first. Rough shelves held boxes, cans, winter hats, mosquito repellent and several other items Natalie couldn’t immediately identify.
A voice called out from the shadows in the rear of the room, “Who’s there?”
“It’s just me, Tanner Rockford.”
“Oh, hey, Tanner. Your family already stopped by on their way to the cabin, and your uncle left the utility sled out back for you. Those girls are sure excited about Santy Claus.”
Girls? Natalie’s jaw began to ache under the strain of holding her tongue while pretending she didn’t know anything about Rockford. Married, just as she had suspected. Worse, he had kids. Brooke would be devastated. But at least Natalie knew his real name.
“Yeah, the girls are excited all right. Say, Red, this lady got off the train by mistake, and she
needs a place to stay. Do you know of any rentals?”
A gnome appeared, peeking around a stack of boxes. The top of his head shined even in the
gloom, and if the remaining hair had ever been red, the color had long ago faded. Natalie didn’t like the speculative gleam in his eye. “Well, now. This time of year, most part-time cabins are locked up tight.
Time was, folks would leave them open in case someone needed a place to stay, but nowadays…” He shook his head sadly. “I suppose, if you’re in a bind, I have a place out back—”
“Are you talking about your woodshed?” Tanner asked.
“Well, yeah, but there’s room for a cot.”
“There’s no stove, is there?”
“I’d throw in a good sleeping bag—” the old man gave a sly smile “—for a fair price.”
“Never mind,” Tanner told him. “She’ll be staying with us.”
Us? Like Tanner and his wife and kids? That would be beyond awkward, especially if he figured out she was connected with Brooke.
“Wait. I never said—”
“It’s that or camp out in Red’s woodshed. Our place has heat and beds. Your choice.”
Well, when he put it like that, Natalie supposed she’d survive awkward.
