The Gamble (Colorado Mountain #1) by Kristen Ashley
Nina Sheridan is taking a holliday. She has decided that she needs time to think if she wants to spend the rest of her life with her clueless fiancee. She thinks a trip to the States will clarify everything for her.
When she gets to the house she has rented, to her surprise there is a hot guy there, who is the owner of the home and tells her she can't stay there. (Max calls her Duchess which later on becomes a term of endearment). Things get worse for her, she has a cold, her car breaks down and she can't get out of it because of the snowstorm.
When she wakes up the next day, she is his bed.
Holden Maxwell has had plenty of sorrow in his life. But, when Nina shows up, it is the first time in a long time that he feels something. He nurses her back to health and forces her to stay with him in his home. Typical Alpha maneuver.
They get to know each other and he shows her around the town of Gnaw Bone, but of course there is always a couple of other story lines happening which being a KA book leads to kidnapping, confrontations, murder, etc.
This is a good book and a great beginning for this series.
