Hurtling down a mountain on a sheet of ice at 90 mph is nothing to Ty Johnson. That's why he's a former Olympic bobsled champion. Holding a cute little fluffball cat for an endorsement—well, that's a deal-breaker. He's had a fear of felines since childhood, but this opportunity could not only give his custom furniture business a boost, but it would also allow him to give back to the sport that defined his life. He's got no other choice but to get over his ailurophobia to book this massive deal.

Dr. Julianna Hill wants to help Ty work through his issues, but she has to say no. At least professionally. She can't deny the immediate attraction, and there's no way she's going to let a man jeopardize the career she's finally starting to build, especially since returning to her childhood hometown. But Jule can't stop thinking about the man who has unexpectedly become her landlord. Perhaps she can help him as a friend—or more.

Ty may be more nervous than a cat on a hot tin roof, but he's not the only scaredy-cat in this relationship. Broken promises at critical moments mean this relationship is going to need nine lives to last. Hold on. This is shaping up to be the ride of a lifetime.
