Less than 24 hours after leaving sunny California, Aurora is stuck in a blizzard on a perilous mountain road wearing little more than her hot pink sandals and wondering whether this was such a great idea after all.
Things start to look up, when help arrives in the form of Grant St. John – he’s handsome and charming, but also has an annoying habit of calling her “sweetheart”. Ergh. And hold on a second, surely she’s misreading the signs because this gorgeous guy can’t be flirting with her…here, in the middle of a snowstorm. Can he?
Sparks fly between the pair right away and the connection between them is intense – there’s just one problem. Grant is ten years younger than Aurora.
Will the decade between them force them apart, or is age really just a number?
