The Surprising Catch, Book Five (The Surprising Catch #5)
by Alexa Wilder
Ashley Woodsen has sworn off all men. The love of her life walked out on their marriage over a year ago, for a slimmer, younger version of Ashley. She couldn't forget his hurtful parting words, and it was just easier to go it alone. So why does she feel her heart flutter and her insides tense every time someone mentions…him?
Preston Alcott has always been a playboy. Wealthy, successful, and as alpha as they get, he’s never had a woman say no to him. So why is this gorgeous curvy nurse constantly turning him away? It seems like she’s looking for any excuse to keep from getting close to him.
If Ashley’s reluctance to be with Preston wasn’t enough, fate puts them together in a small ski resort, cut off from the rest of the world by a blizzard…and surrounded by a few people who may have played part in a murder. As they try to unravel this mystery, they may just figure out what can finally bring them closer to each other.
Preston is the only person Ashley knows she can trust here. Will she be willing to take a risk with her heart?
BOOK FIVE EXCERPT:
It was the gentlest kiss he’d ever given her, a tender cling of lips, a prolonged moment of nothing and everything. It was their first kiss in this new chapter, in accepting that they were real and they would exist beyond this bubble of private bliss, and it tasted like home.
“This is—” he said as the kiss broke and he leaned his forehead against hers, eyes closed. There was a hitch to his voice that made her stomach flip over. Because she understood—she felt it too. There was something different about this, something charged and heavy in this moment. She couldn’t put her finger on what it was, but it felt raw and exposed, like her heart laid out for him to touch.
