Reunited ... and forced to straighten out the past! With the next book in the Dallas Billionaire's Club series, we get Chase's story. He's living the powerful life he was born to lead, but he's missing the person that brought a part of him to life that he's never experienced again. When circumstances bring him face to face with Mimi again, he can't let the opportunity pass him by! The story was fast paced and attention grabbing, with a couple I was rooting for from the beginning! Dallas mayor Chase Ferguson has one regret in life, and that's pushing the woman that he loved away. He knew she wasn't cut out for the political life that he was heading into, so he sacrificed their love to set her free. Miriam Andrix has never forgiven Chase for the ruthless way she perceived him dumping her without a second thought. Now she's suddenly standing stranded in a snowstorm with nowhere to go but into his house. It doesn't take long for the passion between them to flare again, but with the history they share, will they ever be able to make a relationship work again?

A Snowbound Scandal – Jessica Lemmon I was fortunate to receive this novel from Netgalley.com as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review. Not a typical read for me, bit occasionally, I need the break from the tedium of mystery stories, and police procedurals, to sneak in a quick romance or two. Chase Ferguson is the Mayor of Dallas and has a promising political career spread before him. The son of a wealthy oil family, the sky is the limit for Chase. An honest politician, he’s earned the love and support of the Texas people, and his opponents must dig deep to find anything to use against him. Then one morning a picture of ‘Mimi’ crosses his desk. Mimi Andrix is an activist with an agricultural sciences degree and works for the Montana Conservation Society. Her work often has her protesting the very thing Chase’s family stands for – oil. Years ago, while on a break from school, she had a summer fling with Chase, and while he sent her home in the end, she’s never forgotten him or their romantic summer together in Montana. Chase decides to take a quick vacation up to the lake house he owns in Bigfork, Montana for the Thanksgiving Holiday, and has a chance meeting with Mimi at the grocery store. The conversation is awkward, and he shares his card with Mimi, before leaving for his lake home, planning on spending the holiday alone. Mimi, with her heart of gold, cannot stand the thought of Chase not having a proper dinner, so she heads to Chase’s home with plates of food, and barely makes it because of an unexpected snowstorm. Stranded with Chase because of the unrelenting snow, they rekindle the romance of that summer so long ago – and Mimi realizes she’s never stopped loving Chase. But when the snowstorm is over, will Chase leave her behind once again?? A sweet story, with a predictable ending, but every now and then, I need a story where the girl gets her guy! An enjoyable read, and I look forward to the next installment of the series, when Chase’s sister Stephanie meets her match!

Chase Ferguson and Miriam Andrix are trapped by a snowstorm in his mountain house getting a second chance to say all the things they didn't before... Highly enjoyed this engaging and relaxing escape from the every day.....

Great story of a couple that is given a second chance.....

A fun read of reunion and second chances, with a flash of heat. Recommend this one to any who enjoy this genre. This pair shows that sometimes distance and time can grow a relationship, or at least a chance to rekindle a sweet passion that's been banked to a tiny ember for 10 years.

A Snowbound Scandal is a second-chance (we think we're) opposites attract story. Mimi Andrix is an environmentalist that loves the outdoors and teaching kids about what they can do to protect the environment. On the other hand, Chase Ferguson is the son of an oil family and is now deep into politics - but he's one of the good ones. With a little bit of holiday spirit and a little bit of "I'm going to give you a piece of my mind," Mimi heads to Chase's vacation mansion with a Thanksgiving dinner so he won't be alone eating frozen food for the holiday. Stranded at his house by a snowstorm, Mimi and Chase decide to make the best of the circumstances and, well, this is a romance - so one thing leads to another - but eventually they part ways again. At least for a little while There were only a few points of the story that I had a hard time with - possibly because I did not read the rest of the series and one of the side stories seemed to carry over from another book. Outside of this one small thing, the story does very well as a standalone holiday romance. I loved Mimi, her desire to do the right thing, and her ability to not really care what anyone else thought. Chase was a bit of a stick in the mud, but in the end I enjoyed seeing a more spontaneous and softer side. I love that A Snowbound Scandal is more of a winter-theme than a true Christmas theme. While the holidays (mostly Thanksgiving) are mentioned, it's more about the snowstorm and being snowed in with the one that got away. *I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of this book*

I enjoyed reading A Snowbound Scandal by Jessica Lemmon, book two of her Dallas Billionaires Club series. We have Chase Ferguson the Texas Billionaire who was also the Mayor of Dallas. His greatest regret was leaving Miriam Andrix to protect her from his public life ten years ago after spending the summer in Montana. That summer in Montana stayed with him and made such a huge impression on him that he ended up buying a lakeside mansion where he and Miriam had experienced some fun times. It’s now his vacation home, and he’s come for a solo Thanksgiving holiday. A chance encounter with Miriam ends up with her at his home, Thanksgiving dinner in tow as well as a blizzard that ends up trapping them. This time together gives them a chance to talk about what went wrong, and spend time having steamy, no strings attached sex, with both of them knowing that it can’t lead to anything more. Of course that’s easier said than done, especially when Chase’s opposition finds them together, hoping to use it to ruin him. Chase wants to protect Miriam, even if it means keeping her away from him in order for her to be safe. They have to decide whether being together is worth the risk and fortunately they make the choices that lead to a happy ending. Ms. Lemmon wrote a wonderful and emotional story that is not to be missed. She drew me into the lives of her characters, making me forget the world around me. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I’m definitely looking forward to the next book in this series which features Chases’s sister Stef’s book as she has a decidedly antagonistic relationship with his best friend and company security officer Emmett that is sure to make for a fun read! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Since Jessica Lemmon has written two of my favorite books I was overjoyed to be offered an ARC of her new project, A Snowbound Scandal. It will be available via bookselling locations on August 1st. As I enjoy Ms. Lemmon's writing I wasted no time diving into this new romance. I'm giving you my personal reflections to hopefully give you a heads up. Summertime is drawing to a close and we need to make the most of our last, for awhile, vacay time. In my humble opinion you can't go wrong with this book. Ms. Lemmon knows how to write a jerk character, troubled relationships and difficult happy ever afters. Our hero (?) Chase Ferguson happens to be the current Mayor of Dallas, TX and an heir to the Ferguson Oil Corporation. 10 Years ago, during a romantic summer holiday, Chase met Miriam (Mimi) Andrix and it was love at first sight on the beach. Summer lovin' leads to a trip to meet his parents (yep, it's that bad). 10 years later Chase takes a Thanksgiving holiday break back to the scene of the epic love affair. Running into Mimi was an accident, wasn't it? They reconnect during a blizzard and it gets pretty hot, no frostbite here. But all the old problems still exist. Ms. Lemmon has written a story of first love gone wrong, second chances, snowed in sex (what else is there to do?), fear and compromise. As I always say, a happy ever after is a given, it's the journey that counts. You'll have to get the book to read for yourself the twist in our story ending. It's pretty darn good if I do say so myself.

A Snowbound Scandal by Jessica Lemmon. Chase Ferguson and Miriam Andrix reunited over a Thanksgiving weekend where they ended up snowbound in his mansion. They fell back in love after being apart for 10 years. He is a mayor of Dallas and she is an environmental activist and their worlds don't exactly mesh but I really enjoyed how they worked through their problems to get to their happily ever after. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend to anyone looking for a good book to read.

This was a very enjoyable second chance story. Great writing and characters made this a memorable story for this trope. Chase and Mimi once had a hot and heavy relationship but Chase decided to walk away when it became clear life in the public eye wasn't for Mimi. Now they are both back in Montana and Mimi decides to go to Chase's house to confront him about the past once and for all. One little problem - a major blizzard as come through trapping them in his cabin. With no way out and nothing else to do they are forced to deal with the past as well as the sizzling chemistry that still crackles between them. Will they find a way to be together or will they end up walking away once and for all? This is a well done book and definitely one I recommend.

Second chance romance is one of my many favorite troupes. Chase Ferguson, Texas oil billionaire with a future in politics. He’s a good and honorable man and puts his life on the back burner for the better good of his family and his community. Miriam “Mimi” Andrix is a strong and independent woman, straight forward and kind, believes in the good and honor of the people around her. She has fought against Big Oil and the damage it’s done to the environment. Now she works with teenagers to beware of their environment and the world around them. Chase and Mimi shared a romance filled summer ten years ago. Even though his feelings for Mimi were strong Chase broke it off and sent her away. Now the Mayor of Dallas and involved in a upcoming election, Chase receives a photo of Mimi protesting Big Oil Companies, a warning that his opponent may dig up old history. A chance meeting, thanksgiving dinner and a snowstorm is about to give them their second chance at love. In the ten years they’ve matured, dated and still are lonely for what could of been. If Chase can finally put himself first and Mimi fight for what she wants they just might have a chance.

You can't go back, you can only move forward. That's a mantra we all live by, in life and in love. Regrets. We all have them. A constant reminder of where we've been and where we're going. They help us become who we are. However, there are moments that become exceptions. What happens when your greatest regret becomes the link to your present happiness? Jessica Lemmon takes a walk down memory lane with Chase and Miriam. They once had it all, until it all became too much. Can a chance encounter with the past guide them toward a future together? A Snowbound Scandal brings Christmas a few months early. The perfect gift all year round. A passionate tale of love lost and found.

Title: A Snowbound Scandal By: Jessica Lemmon Publisher: Harlequin Desire Series: Dallas Billionaire Club # 2 Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: Four Review: "A Snowbound Scandal" by Jessica Lemmon Harlequin Desire My Thoughts..... This was a perfect sweet read as Miriam 'Mimi' Andrix and Chase Ferguson find their way into a second chance romance. What had seemed for them 10 years ago [summer fling] wasn't to be but now Chase has come back in BigFork, Montana for a Thanksgiving holiday from his mayor duties in Dallas and who does he bumps into coming out of the whole food store? Well, it seems like fate will come for theses two as Mimi who was from BigFork ends up bringing Chase several slices of pumpkin pie which was his favorite [with dinner] and with a snow storm is coming up and one thing will lead to another... she ends up having to spend nights and days with Chase at his mansion. Why did Mimi feel the need to bring Chase Thanksgiving dinner? So, what will come of all of this situation as the reader will see that "from fireside chats to soaking in the indoor hot tub, eating some grilled cheese sandwiches [with no tomatoes for Mimi] and let's not forget the some hot steamy sex that seemed to rekindle their passion. However, will we see these two reconciling their past with the present in all that is going on especially with Chase since he was running for reelection?" When it seems like all is getting somewhat better for these two there will be a interruption that will bring everything to a stop. Will there diverse backgrounds still seem to be a problem for them as it was 10 years ago? How do these old problems still exist? This is where I say you will have to pick up "A Snowbound Scandal" to see how well this author presents this good story to her readers and all of the unanswered questions will be answered. If you would like a story of a couple that were truly meant to be finally getting a second chance at love then this would be a definitely good read for you.
