But new competition, and the death of her best customer, auto dealer Leo Desalvo, leave her struggling.

There’s something fishy about the car, however, and Sally is beginning to suspect shady dealings in Leo’s business. Is Joe involved too? When her long-time friend and employee is murdered, Sally realizes it’s too late to back out of the investigation she’s inadvertently stumbled into. And it seems it’s too late for her heart as well.

To the rest of the world, photojournalist Emily DuBois is the girl who has it all: beauty, talent, and the ultimate, adventure dream job. But her talent with the camera masks a dark secret. When she arrives in Alaska on assignment, that secret is buried so deep, not even Emily knows it.

Although the majestic Arctic makes for the most photogenic assignment of the year, Emily finds herself taking more photos of her survival guide than the igloo he's building. Unfortunately, photos of Austin are as far as Emily can go. Even if it weren't for her past, Emily knows that a younger man should be off limits.

After a near fatal accident changes everything and a sudden whiteout engulfs them, the igloo becomes their refuge and their rescue–in more than ways than one.

My husband told me it wass for me so i got up and there was the dilivery of a dosen roses. This was the first time in over 6 years he had got me roses or anything like that for v-days

  2. 25 years ago, I sent my boyfriend of 3 weeks a giant 26" balloon for Valentines Day to his barracks where he was stuck pulling 24 hour CQ duty. The balloon simply said, "Happy Valentines Day, Tony! Hugs & Kisses, Gena.
    He called me when he got it and we talked for hour on the phone - he was so delighted with that balloon *laugh.*. It wasn't something he could hide, so he had to explain it to all of the guys who came in and out :)

    In the morning, he drove straight to my apartment, stopping only to pick up a single red rose. He proposed to me, and we were married 3 weeks later. We will celebrate our 26th anniversary one month from tomorrow : D
