Escaping the rat race and the lure of gold-digging women, wealthy businessman Vance Banning moves to a small, rural retreat, telling the townsfolk that he's an out-of-work carpenter. All he wants is peace, quiet and to keep away from women. So the last thing he needs is a charitable neighbor--especially a beautiful, gracious and persistent neighbor of the female persuasion--but there's something about Shane Abbott he just can't ignore. Vance is certain his cover story will stop his lovely neighbor from getting too friendly, but Shane is determined to break down his resistance. Vance has been burned once, so only a fool would fall for the same innocent act twice. And he's no fool. But he has no idea how relentless Shane Abbott can be when it comes to giving a helping hand--or a loving heart. He needed to simplify his life and mend his broken heart. She was searching for a place to finally fit in and a man who could love her for who she was. Together they discover that all they really needed was each other, and that love is the greatest Christmas gift of all.

display_description A woman's new neighbor makes a bad—yet unforgettable—first impression in a story of unexpected passion from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts.
After a four-year absence, Shane Abbott returns to her rural Maryland hometown to find that not much has changed, except she now has a new neighbor—a rather ill-mannered and unfriendly one.
Vance Banning isn't the unemployed carpenter he lets Shane think he is. He's a man looking for some peace and quiet—away from work, away from the city and away from women. Only Shane doesn't fit into his plans, not her wholesome beauty, her kindness, or the way she brings hope back into his life...
