Pretty Remarkable: A Pine Village Prequel Short Story

RELEASE DATE: September 8, 2022


Returning home for the holidays after fifteen years is difficult enough without getting stuck in the snow.

When my best friend calls her brother to help, things take a turn from very frustrating to very complicated. I haven’t seen Gabe Rhodes since I was younger. He’s a little grumpier than I remember, and way hotter too.

He offers me shelter from the storm—the only problem…one bed.


I would do anything for my sister, including rescue her friend after a long workday. However, the woman I find stranded in the snow is not the Blair O’Connor I remember.

She’s all grown up and I can’t look away from her gorgeous green eyes. The chemistry between us is electrifying. I bring her home to wait for the roads to clear— but it’s my head I need to clear. I tell myself to keep my hands to myself, she’s just passing through.

I was the perfect gentleman…until she comes walking down the stairs in the middle of the night wearing my shirt.

**This Happy-For-Now prequel short story is part of the Pine Village series. The rest of Blair and Gabe’s story can be found in Pretty Incredible, book 1.
