"Woman Hater" by Diana Palmer
Everyone in the office described the boss's mysterious older brother as a real woman hater -- an absolute bear of a man. So, when Nicole White had to travel with her ailing employer to his brother's home in Montana, she was prepared for the worst. What she found was a man more roughly masculine than any she'd ever met. But Winthrop Christopher had been hurt in the past, and his distrust of women was as solid as the Montana mountains. Nicki knew she should avoid him, but she believed that even mountains could be moved by love!
"Room at the Inn" by Marilyn Pappano
"Home for Christmas" . . . those words had never meant as much to Bryce as they did now. For the first time in years he was back in tiny Angel's Peak, living once again in his childhood home. But there were problems, too. For one thing, the rambling old house was now an inn. For another, the family feud that had led to his departure was still very much in evidence. But then there was Leah, with her beguiling ways and four wonderful children. She had become a part of the family in his absence, and he planned for her to stay that way. Instant fatherhood was an appealing prospect, and marriage to Leah . . . that would be the best Christmas present of all!
