February 1st 2016 by Harlequin Heartwarming
With her professional skiing career cut short by an accident, Hannah James is putting all her energy into transforming Snowy Sky Resort into something special. There’s only one obstacle. Famous pro-snowboarder-turned-
consultant Tate Addison has his own ideas about taking the Rankins, Alaska, lodge to the next level. But Hannah won’t compromise her dreams. She gets that Tate is trying to create a stable home for his orphaned six-year-old nephew—a boy Hannah already adores. And if she isn’t careful, she could also fall for the boy’s too-attractive uncle. Is she risking heartbreak? Or do she and Tate really want the same things out of life?
Let’s (Really) Get to Know Hannah & Tate from A Family Like Hannah’s
Hannah James – professional skier, owner and manager of Snowy Sky Ski ResortHannah loves her hot chocolate. Her favorite way to drink it is with a mound of whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
The fact that she’s athletic is no surprise. She’s a former professional skier after all. But she’s also good at other things – unusual things – like archery, darts, and the “fish frenzy.” You know that game they have at carnivals where you toss ping pong balls and try to win a gold fish? That’s the one. Her skill at this game ends up getting Tate into a spot of trouble.
The fish frenzy has nothing to do with her love of koi, however. Yes, I’m talking about the ornamental Japanese fish that she adores. She’s happy to set people straight with the fact that koi and gold fish are actually two entirely different species of carp.
She’s the “middle child” in a family of six. With two older siblings and triplet younger siblings, she thinks of herself being stuck in the middle.
She’s a total “kid person.” You know that person at a party or family gathering that all the little ones flock to? That’s Hannah.
Tate Addison – professional snowboarder, businessman, inventor, ski area consultantTate drinks coffee – black.
Because his mother is an alcoholic, he does not partake. Ever.
Tate is raising his six-year-old nephew, whom he loves with all of his heart. He desperately wants to do all the right things where his little guy is concerned – if only he could figure out what those things are. He has comically little hands-on experience when it comes to dealing with children. (A $50 bribe to a five-year-old in order to get him to put his jacket on seems reasonable in the moment…)
He’s serious, and comes across as a little somber sometimes. I know what you’re thinking – how can he be serious if he’s a snowboarder? Well, he’s had it rough. Terrible childhood. Snowboarding was his livelihood, not a recreational activity. (Poor guy needs someone to show him it’s okay to enjoy the lighter side of life, right?)
He can sing – a talent that is revealed in a funny scene that, unfortunately, also results in one of Hannah’s most embarrassing moments. Yikes.
