Carolina Fulton sure knows how to break an engagement. After catching her cheating fiancé touching another woman, she breaks it off in style and decided to have a break from her busy and media-infested life in Washington. She knows the perfect place to find that relaxation – their family’s cabin in Wyoming. And it’s the perfect time of the year since it was snowing there – she loves the cold weather. But of course, she’s not coming alone. As the president’s daughter, a Secret Service should be with her to protect her. If only this particular agent wasn’t that young and hot. Ignoring him would be useless – this guy has irresistible written all over him. Exercising her self-control would require a great effort.
Jake Baxter was attracted to her, and knowing better than to act on the attraction, he tries to stop it. Developing feelings for the clients was not on his job description. His duty was to protect her, not to fantasize about her. Hating the cold, Carolina might be the only thing that comes good in Wyoming, and being with her trapped due to the raging blizzard had intensified his attraction.
Both may have come from different walks of life, and had way different back grounds, but they share one commonality – their unhappiness with their present situation. Whereas Carolina wanted the change and would embrace it with open arms, ready to jump at any opportunity, Jake was still torn. The honor of being the youngest Secret Service, and following his father’s footsteps, made him feel content. Carolina wanted them both to be happy, and if she could only convince him… She did something unthinkable, and I might have applaud her if not for the fact that she did it behind his back. She would do anything not only to be with him, but to make him happy as well – if only he would realize it and stop being stubborn too!
The coldness of the setting didn’t stop the flames to ignite between these two, not to mention a meddling scary friend, whom I completely adore, and Carolina’s family who surprisingly had her back, and supported her decisions.
This story reminds me so much of Chasing Liberty and The First Daughter (both movies I so love, by the way) – the president’s daughter falling in love with a sexy Secret Service Agent. It’s not a new plot, but Laura made sure there is something new to it that would have you pinning over the characters, and wishing them their happy ending. I had fun reading, I was thoroughly entertained, found myself falling in love and swooning over the sexy and sinful Jake Baxter.
