Kate Hamilton hates Valentine's Day, particularly when a cute guy at a roadside bar turns down her offer of a one-night stand. She picks her ego up off the floor and completes her drive to Gospel, Idaho, to help her grandfather. But guess who shows up?

Former hockey star Rob Sutter owns the store across from Kate's grandfather's shop. He's certainly surprised to find the woman who propositioned him coming into town and kicking up trouble. If only he didn't like her kind of "trouble" quite so much.…

Gibson's novel is fast-paced, with snappy dialogue and frequently hilarious narration. Kate and Rob are warm, compelling characters, and their sexual chemistry sizzles on the page. This is a tremendously fun read with a few serious moments that bring added emotional depth to the story. (Jan., 384 pp., $6.99)
