Here's a novella you'll be able to read in one sitting, from an author who's ventured away from historical romance and gifted her fans with a snappy contemporary romance.

Chelsea Crawford has been employed at the ad firm Grabber-Paulson for six years, putting in long hours and painstakingly working her way up the corporate ladder. She's hopeful that her latest idea for a big automobile account will finally win her more than just mediocre attention.

Even so, she has the niggling suspicion her colleague and arch nemesis, Ian Rafferty, knows more than he's letting on. He's currently Grabber-Paulson's golden boy, one they'd lured from another firm for his outside of the box thinking. She can't deny Rafferty's talent, but feels in her heart that her family oriented idea is more attuned to the times. She's determined to show Ian and the other partners that she knows how to sell cars.

When a raging blizzard shuts down the city and strands Chelsea and Ian in their office tower, their competitive natures must take a back seat to keeping warm. Ian is more than happy to get to know Chelsea a bit better, but it takes her a little longer to warm up to the man's good-natured charm. Before you know it the lights are back on, the city's digging out, and it's business as usual - or so Chelsea thinks.

Julia London charms with this breezy tale where misconceptions lead to love, deftly using the tried and true plot device of the leads being stranded together and forced to see one another in a completely different light.
