The last thing in the world romance writer Katriane wanted to do was spend Christmas with her roommate's arrogant, infuriating brother. A rugged Wyoming rancher like Egan Winthrop belonged in New York City about as much as she belonged out in the wildrness. But Egan's deep kisses and powerful embrace soon stripped Katriane of her defenses. And the offer of a visit to his ranch was nothing short of sensual blackmail. Soon Katriane had lost her heart as completely as the heroines in her own novels. But how could she convince Egan that, unlike the women in her books, she had never yet been loved?
