What me? Well yes, hands up, I confess. We have more than our fair share of grey days in the UK so I long for either blue skies and sunny days or…..drum roll…..snow. I hadn’t realized how obsessive I was about the weather until I checked my books and registered how often I set them in either winter. I love snow, except when I have to drive in it. The slightest flutter from the sky will make the car squeal – or maybe that’s me. Having once sobbed off and on for two hours as I drove over the Pennines – the hills that run down the spine of the UK- I avoid driving in snow if I possibly can. It freaks me out. Our tyres are built to cope with lots of water, not any amount of the white stuff.
The four books I have with Decadent are all set in the winter. Three of them feature snow, the other is set in Orlando, Florida. Not much chance of snow there! But the INS story I want to talk about is called On the Right Track, which takes place on a snowy New Year’s Eve. Nick and Hollie’s cars kiss on a snowy road. Fate or the hand of Madame Eve?
Always driving through life along the straight and narrow, Hollie wants a break from staying within the lines. She hopes a hookup at 1NightStand with a tall fair-haired guy who’s organized and sensible, likes small-breasted brunettes, and can deal with any crisis life throws at him, will jar her from the mundane path she’s been on.
Except what seemed like the perfect plan when she set off, turns into the worst idea ever as the snow falls thickly. Slipping and sliding, her arms numb from clenching the wheel, she becomes frantic to avoid what’s looming in front of her.
Dark-haired Nick is on his way to a party with hopes of connecting with a busty blonde—assuming he’s even on the right road and can dig himself out of a heap of snow before he freezes solid. Too bad he never plans ahead, no coat and no shovel in the car, and soon he won’t even see a road at all, let alone any vehicle barrelling down it.
When two hearts get lost in a snowstorm of what they think they want, can Madame Eve's magic put them back on the right track?

If you’d like to check out my other books – there might a few that don’t feature snow!
