    Summary

    Ben ran a hand through his hair. His breath came out in a long exhale. "If we're doing this, we may as well go all in and do it properly. No sense in taking the risk if we aren't willing to do what we need to do to avoid getting caught."

    "This is insane," she laughed, the absurdity of the situation getting to her. She took a minute to question her sanity and then laughed again. "My visa expires at the end of the year. That's in less than three months. If we’re doing this, we need to figure it out by then."

    Ben looked over at her, seeming as overwhelmed as she was. "December wedding?"

    "May as well," she agreed, throwing her hands up. "It should be massive. We can let your mom plan it and we'll take a billion pictures and change our facebook statuses and—"

    When Rey realizes her student visa is about to expire, she struggles to find a way to stay in the country legally. Her roommate has a terribly stupid idea, and it's just insane and risky enough to work.

    Summary

    When they split, his forehead rests against hers, his nose brushing her cheek. His words are a whisper that cut through her heart like a knife.

    “What I wouldn’t give to have you as my princess.”

    The words are agonizing for the simplest reason: she is not a lady—not a duke’s daughter, not a noblewoman from a distant land, and while she may be his, she will never be his princess.

    But Rey lets his fingers find her hair and begin a braid that allows her to pretend otherwise.

    Summary

    Rey leaned down, cupping his face in both her hands. Keeping up the charade, at least for a moment, she sniffed, pretending to be moved by his words.

    "I'm going to murder you," she ground out through a happy grin. "Already picked out a nice spot in the backyard for your body. Rose'll help, but the last thing you'll ever see is me, and a very large knife."

    His expression didn't falter, and without moving his mouth, he muttered, "Just calling your bluff, sweetheart. Go ahead, we both know you'll say no. Then you get to explain it to my parents."

    She hummed, pushing the livid rage down into a box she could ignore. Working her lips together, she considered the situation and decided the best course of action was the one he didn't expect. Wiping at imaginary tears, she nodded. "Yes! Yes, of course! Of course I'll marry you!"

    Thanks to a series of misunderstandings, failed attempts at flirting, and loud Katy Perry music, Ben grows to hate his new neighbor. Proposing to her probably wasn't the best solution to his problems.

    Summary

    Frank is a logger living a life of isolation up in the mountains of Seward, Alaska. Running from his grief, he has retreated so far into himself that he couldn't find his way out if he tried.

    Karen is an author who has rented the cabin down the way from Frank’s in order to get away and write her next novel in solitude. Having suffered severe writer's block, she's hoping that the quietude of Alaska will help her find her muse.

    After years of falling apart, the universe has decided that it's time for these two to fall together.

    "Frank watched her, with her head thrown back, fascinated. It had been a minute since he’d made anyone other than Curtis and David laugh. He was surprised at how easily it was coming to him—how relatively effortless it was to talk to Karen. He supposed, in part, it was because of her profession; he was sure that someone who spent most of their time studying people and writing dialogue would be a great conversationalist. But it also felt like he was dusting off the parts of him that used to be really good at this—the parts of him that were capable of making Maria laugh; were comfortable joking around. The parts that, while creaky and unused, were still there."
