OVERNIGHT LOVE by Nicole Edwards
When Lucas Burch and MacKenzie Catlay find themselves caught in an ice storm, sparks fly. Is it possible to share just one night together, or is this a recipe for overnight love? (Dead Heat Ranch)

ROCKY RETREAT by Vivian Arend
When a snowstorm traps Lee Coleman in a remote wilderness cabin with the woman of his dreams, it’s time to turn up the cowboy charm and convince Rachel Malone she wants more than a rebound fling…  (Six Pack Ranch 7.5)

SLOW BURN by Cheyenne McCray
