The heat is high and the laughs are plentiful in this steamy romantic comedy by Augusta Reilly. Laura Delaney loves her small mountain hometown of North Powell with its quaint charm, stately Victorian homes and surrounding hiking trails. Unfortunately, when it comes to attracting travel dollars, it can no longer compete with the flashy hot springs and ski slopes of nearby competitors. That's why she hires a hotshot marketing team to figure out how to inject the old magic back into North Powell's sagging tourist trade. What she doesn't expect is for the team to include David Harper. Smart, funny, handsome, and amazing in bed, he's the perfect man. All she needs to do now is keep their relationship under wraps until the project is over. But that's easier said than done when she's assigned to work with Spence Markham, the company's offbeat "idea man" and David's professional nemesis. When Spence suggests hosting a Dickens Festival to revitalize the town's winter economy, Laura is thrilled. She's even more thrilled when Spence falls in love with Powell House, the dilapidated Victorian she hopes to turn into a town museum. But is Spence falling in love with Laura as well? Soon, what started as a simple assignment becomes a tale of two possible futures.
