Cover Breakdown: Jill Shalvis's HOT WINTER NIGHTS

Who's ready to return to Heartbreaker Bay? We'll make the trip later this September when Jill Shalvis's Hot Winter Nights hits shelves. In the meantime, the book's cover art and blurb are certainly piquing our curiosity. We plan to talk to Jill ALL ABOUT our friends from Heartbreaker Bay when we see her in Reno (did we mention that Jill will attend the RT Booklovers Convention, May 15th through 20th?), but until then we'll just have to satisfy our curiosity with what's available! Behold, the book's blurb:

Who needs mistletoe?

Most people wouldn’t think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn’t most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she’s been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that—but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .

Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don’t mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he’s shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly’s brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can’t believe he’s drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who’s the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he’s ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he’s been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.
