Neither of them have forgotten the one forbidden night that could have cost them everything. Now, 37-year old Owen and 22-year-old Cassidy must confront the thing they’ve been trying so hard to avoid the past two years.
Senator Owen Blaze may be known to the world as the rising star of his party and one of the most eligible bachelors in the country, but that will never be how tech heiress Cassidy Sloane sees him. To Cass, Owen has always just been her much older brother’s best friend and the off-limits man of her dreams.
At least, that’s all he was—until one fateful night two years ago when those limits were tested and everything between them changed. They have spent the last two years regretting that moment and avoiding each other at all costs, knowing the secret they carry between them could destroy both their lives.
Now, here they are, face-to-face and staying under the same roof for a full week over New Year’s. Will their past stay in the past so they can become friends again? Or will their feelings once again be too hard to fight, even with everything that’s on the line?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I had written a short story about one of the characters in this book and something about this side-story kept calling to me. I figured I would write another short story based on these two characters and their romance, but once I started writing it, the whole thing just unfolded in front of me. Before I knew it, I was knee deep in the story of Cass and Owen and it ended up becoming a full 75,000 word novel! I guess you could say while they were falling in love, I was too.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
This story started with the antagonist, who was also the antagonist in a short story I wrote. He is a smart and handsome senator from a political dynasty. In this story, I created his counterpart and rival–kinda the white hat version of this villain. That's Owen, our main character. His love interest and our heroine is Cassidy, who truthfully has a lot of me in her. While I certainly didn't come from the money or world that Cass lives in, I have experienced a lot of the loss that she experiences. I found myself writing that into the story.
