Book Description:

A Montana town where no one is who they seem....

Everything about runaway heiress Ainsley McLeon screamed trouble—from her luscious midnight locks to her Louboutin-clad toes.  Yet sexy, stoic bar owner Luc couldn’t deny the instant connection he felt to the tempting stranger…or the long-dead feelings she evoked.  She could work in his pub until her truck was fixed but after that she had to leave town for good.

Ainsley traveled with her own emotional baggage and there was no way she'd fall for the bear-tempered matter how many passionate nights she spent in his bed or how safe she felt in his muscular arms. Can these two opposites find love in the middle of a blizzard, or will Luc's darker side and Ainsley's past catch up with them?

Ainsley McLeon has to shed her identity and quick, after hearing a plot for her untimely demise she ends up in a small town in Montana.  Ainsley is used to the finer things in life, born with a silver spoon, she is shockingly thrilled with the ability to adapt to a lifestyle completely  out of her element.

Instincts call out to bear shifter Luc, get Ainsley out of town and quick.  Of course there must be a reason the debutante who thinks she is pulling off normalcy is in hiding.   She makes Luc laugh, has a love for food, and despite Luc's unwillingness to get attached, he is falling hard for the unusual human.

I thought this was a charming read.  Luc has had his own share of tragedy and he doesn't want to get attached to Ainsley.  Ainsley feels her life spiraling out of control, but one anchor seems to naturally be Luc.   There are several laugh out loud moments with Ainsley and her waitressing amongst the shifter crowd, excellent read.
