Caged in Winter

(The first book in the Reluctant Heart series)
A novel by

Named one of the top 101 romances of the past decade by Booklist.

Winter Jacobson has fought hard to escape the life she was born in to. She's only seventy-six days away from college graduation--and the future she's dreamed of for so long. She just has to stick to her rules: Don't lose focus. Trust no one. Hookups only--she doesn't want or need a man ruining her plans.

But then Cade Maxwell, aspiring chef and Prince Charming in-training, comes swooping in to her life. All brash exterior and marshmallow center, Cade strips away her walls as easily as he strips away her clothes. One of the best in his class, he's on the fast-track to his dream job--as long as he keeps his eye on the prize.

This close to graduation, neither of them can afford a distraction. Despite their explosive chemistry, nothing serious can develop between them. Thankfully, Winter's rules are keeping them safe.

Except Cade's not playing by her rules anymore.

Caged in Winter is a standalone with no cheating, an HEA, and can be read in any order within the series. 

"Cade is the perfect book boyfriend." ~Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
