In the Yukon, nearly everything occurs just after midnight--even love.

When her father is killed in an avalanche, Megan Daily finds herself the owner of The Celebration, a glittering jewel of a dance hall in the Klondike Gold Rush town of Dawson City. When unexpected danger forces her to seek the help of the authorities, she finds herself undeniably attracted to Alex Carson of the Northwest Mounted Police, despite his clear disapproval of her line of work.

The determined Mountie has a job to do even though all he can think about is taking Megan to bed. Alex lost his sister to the hard life of the Yukon, and he is determined to save Megan from the same fate.

Megan is equally determined to keep her father's legacy, which proves to be more than just The Celebration. When she discovers she has inherited a gold mine, as well as a mysterious partner, her life is put in jeopardy.

Will Megan and Alex be able to work together to discover the truth before it's too late?

About the Author

Lori Handeland is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with more than 60 published works of fiction to her credit. Her novels, novellas, and short stories span genres from paranormal and urban fantasy to historical and contemporary romance and, most recently, women’s fiction. Just Once (Severn House, January 2019), her women’s fiction debut, is a richly layered novel about two women who love the same man, how their lives intertwine, and their journeys of loss, grief, sacrifice, and forgiveness.

Lori set her sight on being an author at the age of ten. She remembers sitting at a typewriter before she knew how to type, pecking out a story about a family who went into space. As an only child, her summers were spent with that typewriter, television, and, above all, books. She recalls thinking that if she could write books of her own, she would never run out of books to read. As a young adult, she got sidetracked by the need to make a living. She worked as a waitress and later enrolled in college to become a teacher.

While student teaching, Lori started reading a life-changing book, How to Write a Romance and Get It Published. Within its pages the author, Kathryn Falk, mentioned Romance Writers of America. There was a local chapter; Lori joined it, dived into learning all about the craft and business, and got busy writing a romance novel. With only five pages completed, she entered a contest where the prize was having an editor at Harlequin read her first chapter. She won.

Lori sold her first novel, a western historical romance, in 1993. In the 26 years since then, she has written eleven novels in the popular Nightcreature Novels, five installments in the Phoenix Chronicles, six works of contemporary romance about the Luchettis, a duet of Shakespeare Undead novels, and many more books. Her fiction has won critical acclaim and coveted awards, including two RITA Awards from Romance Writers of America for Best Paranormal Romance (Blue Moon) and Best Long Contemporary Category Romance (The Mommy Quest), a Romantic Times Award for Best Harlequin Superromance (A Soldier’s Quest), and a National Reader’s Choice Award for Best Paranormal (Hunter’s Moon).

Lori lives in Southern Wisconsin with her husband. In between writing and reading, she enjoys long walks with their rescue mutt, Arnold, and occasional visits from her two grown sons and perfectly adorable grandson.
