She has one week to make it real...
Single mom Amber Barnett loves family, kids, Christmas…and unfortunately, her boss, confirmed bachelor Michael DeFranco. It's a crush she really needs to get over. Except, when she’s temporarily forced from her apartment, her only option is to stay at Michael’s private ski lodge, where she's the housekeeper. No problem. Her handsome boss rarely visits Snowflake Valley unexpectedly, plus he’s spending the holidays with his family. Or so she thinks…
A stormy Christmas Eve reunion leaves Michael seeking the solitude of his lodge, where he finds Amber in residence—and in trouble. Attempting to save her from her matchmaking family, he announces they’re a couple. His good deed backfires when they’re instantly included in each and every holiday event in town. So much for solitude.
Only the more time he spends with the beautiful, cheery brunette, the more he yearns to make things real between them. But he and Amber want different things, and Michael could never be the family man she's looking for.

If you could have a do-over, what would you do differently? Worked harder at keeping my family together
Is it possible to survive tragedy and find happiness again? Not so long ago, I’d have said a solid NO. Now, thanks to Amber and her family, I’m having trouble holding onto my own convictions.
What’s something you’ve said you would never do, but in fact have done? Take care of a baby again.
Most romantic gesture: From me? Well, I can’t take full credit for it since I had some assistance, but the most recent romantic thing I’ve done is kiss Amber under a sprig of parsley. (Long story.)
Words to live by: Right now, what I’m trying to convince Amber to believe: “No matter how much I’d want to, I could never be the right man for you.”
