Kimber
Some people view nosiness as a character flaw. I prefer to think of it as a useful skill. Like a sixth sense or intuition. It’s my super power. And since I became a reporter for my small town newspaper, I like to think my super power puts bagels on my table.

A tiny (quite big, actually) mistake has me eagerly accepting a contract job investigating a resort being built in a small Colorado town.

But there’s one small problem. (6’4” according to his license—maybe my nosiness does go too far sometimes.)

What I didn’t count on was being double-booked in a cabin with Mack Boone.

Our families have known each other since high school, so it feels wrong to kick him out of my cabin.

Besides…he’s kind, he’s protective, and a great kisser.

Three qualities I admire in a man.

But when I find out why he is in town, I realize I’ve made yet another mistake.

No more kissing, Kimber. He’s the enemy.

Lines are drawn. (Literally.)

Wars fought.

Hills sledded.

Lips kissed. Oh right, I wasn’t going to do that one anymore. Maybe I’ll call it research…

The more I investigate the resort, the more time I spend with Mack…the more I wonder what I’m really fighting against. The more I wonder if I can take a chance on love.

What if the villain is really the hero in this story?

*Vacations Like This is a standalone sexy, closed door romantic comedy in a series of connected characters.

EXCERPT:
Mack was in the kitchen when I walked inside, stomping my boots on the rug. After shucking my snow gear, I went straight to the coffee pot and turned it on. Then I tried to reach into the cupboard with my right arm. My elbow seized up.

"What?" I gasped.

Why was my arm so sore?

Someone cleared their throat.

I glanced behind me to find Mack smiling while leaning against the stove, a pan warming up with a pack of bacon sitting beside it on the counter. I hadn't even noticed him in my quest for a mug.

"You all right?" he asked, with a decidedly cheerful tone in his voice. "I'd be happy to massage that for you."

"I'm sure you would," I replied dryly. I tried reaching in the cupboard with my left hand. That elbow had the same problem.

And now I knew why T-Rex's went extinct. They couldn't reach their coffee mugs in the morning. Tragedies like that could always be explained if a person did enough research.

"Did you hurt yourself? Dang. I'm so sorry."

His false sympathy nearly made me laugh. Nearly.

Gone was the sweet guy, and he was replaced with a snarky, poor winner.

I tried to reach into the cupboard again. My elbow creaked loudly. I didn't know it was even possible for an elbow to creak. I glanced at Mack to see if he realized my dilemma. He finished dumping the package of bacon into the pan before he made any comment.

"Here, let me help you," Mack said with a heavy sigh.

I happily stepped back, grateful that he was going to take mercy on me in my desperate state.

But instead of reaching into the cupboard himself, he wrapped an arm around my waist and lifted me up. My back pressed against his front as he stepped closer to the counter.

"What are you doing?" I asked as I squirmed.

"Helping you pick out your coffee mug," he explained in a not-so-innocent voice.

His chest rumbled against my back as he spoke.
