The phone call that changed their lives forever…
Minutes after Vice President Nick Cappuano and Lt. Sam Holland get the call that President Nelson has been found dead in the residence on Thanksgiving, they’re still processing that Nick has been asked to come to the White House to take the oath of office.
As they go through the motions to ensure a peaceful transition of power, Sam has a million and one concerns about her husband, her family, the Nelson family, the country and the enormity of what Nick is about to take on. In the back of her mind is another major concern: What does this mean for my job? No other first lady in history has held a job outside the White House, but she’s determined to be the first, to blaze new trails for those who will follow her. However, in order to do that, she quickly realizes that compromises will have to be made to continue working as a Homicide detective.
Their lives become an immediate firestorm of meetings, requests for interviews, difficult questions from their children and a host of potential landmines to navigate as they make the transition from second family to first family. An unexpected issue with a diplomatic trip to Iran quickly thrusts Nick into the thick of his new responsibilities while Sam confronts a murder investigation that may have ties to a cold case from fifteen years ago.
As everything around them spins out of control, Sam and Nick take refuge with each other, relying on their unbreakable bond to see them through the storm.
How Much I Love Coming June 22
My name is Wyatt Blake. I’m a cardiothoracic surgeon in Phoenix. When I was 17, I had a heart transplant that saved my life. That’s not something I tell just anyone, because I hate being defined by the illness that ruled the first half of my life. The average life expectancy for a transplant patient is 11 years. I’m 34, and in case math isn’t your thing, that puts me about six years past my expiration date when I spend a weekend at my buddy Jason’s wedding in Miami and meet the sexiest bridesmaid in the history of sexy bridesmaids.
Dee Giordino. She’s sweet, kind, loving and drop-dead gorgeous. I love every minute I spend with her.
We had so much fun together at the wedding, and when I invited her back to my room after, we had the best night I’ve ever had with anyone. And now I can’t stop thinking about her or texting her or wishing our one-night stand could somehow be more, even though “more” isn’t in my vocabulary.
When Jason tells me there’s an opening in my specialty at his hospital, I come running back to Miami to interview for the job. And to see Dee again, even though I know that’s completely unfair to her. In light of my situation, I’ve become the king of the one-night stand. It wouldn’t be fair to drag someone else into my reality when my future is so uncertain.
But Dee, she’s different from the beginning, and maybe, just maybe, I might have to break all my rules for her… Fair or not.

Return to Butler, VT on July 13 and Read Come Together
Three years after his marriage ended in dramatic fashion, Noah Coleman has one goal—to steer clear of romantic entanglements. In fact, he steers clear of most human interaction, studiously avoiding his large, meddling extended family, working until he’s exhausted and then repeating the pattern day after day. His strategy has worked well for him for years, keeping him sealed off from anything that can cause him pain or angst. Or it was working for him… before his company was hired to rebuild the Admiral Butler Inn after a fire reduced it to rubble, and he was forced to co-exist with the exasperatingly difficult, gorgeous architect the inn’s owner, Mrs. Hendricks, hired to oversee the project.
Brianna Esposito is determined to complete the Butler Inn construction under budget and on time—and to make partner in the Boston firm where she’s been working fourteen hours a day for five years. Finally, she has a chance to oversee an entire project from start to finish, and to show the firm’s leadership that she belongs among their ranks. Nothing is going to stop her from achieving her goal, especially a cranky contractor with the people skills of a rabid cougar. Noah Coleman is the most exasperating human being she’s ever had the misfortune to tangle with. She’s never had screaming fights with anyone the way she does him, and the fact that he’s also the sexiest man she’s ever met makes it that much more difficult to hold her ground.
So how is it that when a snowstorm strands her in Butler for Christmas, she ends up spending the holiday with the man she wants to stab one minute and kiss the next? And will he ever tell her why he’s so bitter and angry? Brianna suspects the answer to that question could also be the key to his well-protected heart.
Come back to Butler, Vermont to find out if these two adversaries will give in to the sparks that’ve been flying between them for months or if they’ll finally succeed in driving each other crazy.
