Ski patroller Mackenzie Fitzgerald buys a date with her boss, Andrew Dawson, to rescue him from an ex-girlfriend’s overactive auction paddle. The romantic night that follows is anything but platonic, stoking a flame she’s been trying to put out for years. Mackenzie must find a way to add ‘lover’ to ‘boss and friend’, or risk her position on the mountain she loves – and her heart.


He won gold. Now he’s going to win her love.

Olympic rower Will McLachlan’s medal is still warm in his pocket when he spots middle-distance runner Evie Stewart mourning her bronze finish with a heap of greasy food. Ever the competitor, Will is determined to put a smile on her sexy mouth. Nothing serious, just a fun date to cap off his Games. His quick-to-fall heart has other plans. As he squires her around his favorite London haunts, her smile isn’t enough–he needs the promise of more.

Evie has spent her whole life on the track, and the prospect of retiring her sneakers and paying off her student loan makes her want to lace up and sprint far away. But traipsing around London with Will does more than numb her disappointment over her less-than-her-best Olympic finish and her financial burdens. For the first time she can remember, she is tempted to race toward love instead of a finish line. And with a little creativity and courage, she might just achieve the result of a lifetime.
