Contemporary Romance, Holiday Romance
Date Published: November 15, 2022
When Australian Taylor Quinn travels to the Canadian Rockies, he least expects his holiday to be challenged by a snowboarding accident. The injury prevents further winter sports, but the hospital stay nurtures an optimistic connection: A nurse, with a finger on his pulse, supports his recovery and takes a chance on what could become a promising friendship.
Working on a trauma unit, Sarah Evans desires more than another critical care patient. When she meets Taylor, there’s something about him that appeals to her relationship goals. Maybe it’s the kindness in his eyes or his jovial warmhearted personality, but an ethical dilemma ensues when her care extends beyond the hospital setting. This heartfelt risk could lead to happiness, to the love she’s been searching for, maybe even a home far away from family, friends, and her native country.
What will a snowboarder and a nurse do when circumstances beyond their control end the holiday, potentially injuring their newfound romance? Will Taylor return to Australia? Will Sarah risk everything for the love she’s found?
