When all flights are cancelled due to snow, he invites her to stay the night at his apartment, as she's given up her place in order to move abroad. They succumb to their mutual lust in what they think is a one-night stand. But after the planes are cancelled for several days, he offers her a wild, crazy three-day affair, before they go their separate ways.
I loved half of this book and hated half of it. I like a good fairytale romance, and much of this - the shoppi Lydia meets Amir at the airport. I like a good fairytale romance, and much of this - the shopping, the "holiday" at the pool-beach, the celebrations for "Valentines" and "Easter" and "Christmas" were all frothy and delightful. And I found the sexual tension between Lydia and Amir was very hot.
However, neither character pleased me. Lydia left me saying "meh" - she didn't seem to have much personality - and Amir's mood swings and bursts of cruelty were really hard for me to take. At times he was charming and sexy, and then he'd turn into this sarcastic, mean brute for no apparent reason. English heroes do tend to do this often, which is why I avoid British romance novels for the most part, but having read this some years back I didn't remember him having quite so many nasty bouts of temper. So another one for my to-sell pile. Shame, because the fairytale affair really intrigued me, but it couldn't make up for a hero with a cruel streak.

About Kate Walker. Kate Walker. I was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but I didn't live there for very long. The family moved to West Yorkshire when I was just eighteen months old and so I have always regarded Yorkshire as my home. I grew up there as the middle child in a family of five—all girls—in a home where books were vitally important and I read anything I could get my hands on. Even before I could write I was making up s I was born in Nottinghamshire, England, but I didn't live there for very long. Even before I could write I was making up stories.
