Barefoot In the Snow
Dave Seranno had a bad marriage, 16 years worth of it, which left him with no desire to ever be emotionally involved with a woman again--he'd rather ride his Harley. He does have an eye for one he wants to have in his bed, though, a pretty blonde girl who drives him crazy. She's 18 years younger than him, married to a wealthy lawyer, and way out of his league. It's only a fantasy to have her, until she shows up at his garage on a cold night, barefoot in the snow. Joy's husband is abusive and controlling. She wants to escape her marriage and be with the man she really loves, a man she hardly knows. Fleeing her husband, she runs out into the snow wearing only her nightgown. She makes her way to Dave's garage, determined to tell him the dreams she's had of him for so long. After nearly freezing to death, she finds herself safe in Dave's bed, warm beneath his body and more in love with him than ever. She only has two problems now; convincing Dave to fall in love with her, and not winding up dead at the hands of her cruel husband.
