The title of this book is a little bit misleading, but possibly Snowbound With A Star was already taken. Serena Winston is a major movie star taking time out at a secret hideaway in the Austrian Alps to deal with the aftermath of a bad break-up. It's just her bad luck that the stranger she rescues after a car crash happens to be Jackson Bennett, host of a major morning television show.

Jackson doesn't recognize Serena out of her movie makeup and costumes, but he knows the shy beauty is hiding som

Serena Winston, Hollywood movie star, is escaping from the limelight in Austria; she has always wanted to learn to ski, and she rented a chalet in the Alps. She is walking her dog Gizmo, when he suddenly frees himself from his leash. A snowstorm is under way, and as Serena starts looking for her puppy, she hears a crash. She hurries to the scene; no dog, but a man needs rescuing before his car blows up. Then Serena recognises him: Jackson Bennett, the famous morning news anchorman; precisely wha ...more

Serena Wilson is trying to escape her life in a isolated cabin in Austria. Too much gossip about her love life all because her boyfriend wants to advance in his career. When her dog Gizmo gets loose things change, and she can’t find him. It does bring her to a car in the snow which has TV show host Jackson Bennett in it. She can’t allow him to know who she really is. To her he’s the enemy.

He soon turns her life upside down to say the least. He’s hurt, and stuck. She needs to get him out fast.

Serena Winston was a big movie star and she needed to take a "time out". She decided she was tired of her ex fiance using her to advance his career. She decided to go to the Alps and rent a beautiful cabin in the middle of nowhere for a little while.

She has a small dog she named Gizmo, she was out walking him one night and she decided to let him off his leash. She heard screeching tires and thought Gizmo was gone. But instead of that she met a gentlemen that she knew of, and she helped him out o

To the world, Serena Mae Winston seemed to have it all. Money, looks, and fame but the thing she was missing was real happiness. Her father had passed away rather unexpectedly and she never got to tell him how much she loved him. Her mother was another story as she was always running around with a much younger man. Her father and Serena might not have seen eye to eye but he did love her in his own way. The icing on the cake was when she heard Shawn bragging to his friend "how great Serena was fo ...more

Snowbound with an Heiress is not your typical holiday romance, at least to me. It was a warm, loving, sometimes funny, holiday read. Serena Winston and Jackson Bennet meet, under trying circumstances, and with the help of a cute little furball named Gizmo, manage to take you on a holiday adventure. I think the most touching part of the story is that as the reader, you are privy to the background and hurt both of these individuals have buried deep in their hearts and psyches.

I picked up this book solely because it was by Jennifer Faye. I used to be on her review team and her books are always a good, quick read. And this one didn't disappoint.

Admittedly, I tend to stay away from books where one of the main characters is famous. I feel that the author has a tough road ahead of them coming up with a believable romance for the character. In this case, both of the characters have a little fame behind them. Serena is a well known movie star and Jackson hosts a popular mor

How can a small-sweet puppy come out of nowhere to cause such a collision? Meet Gizmo, he will not only steal your heart, but he has a kleptomaniac disposition, which proves to be just one of many mishaps in the Alps.
Jennifer Faye’s Snowbound With An Heiress is comical and heartwarming, as two strangers meet by “accident” during a snowstorm in a life threatening situation.
Serrena (Mae) Winston and Jackson Bennett’s lives are about to change from the high profile lives they normally live, to two

Snowbound with an Heiress is a very sweet romance. Strangers yet acquaintances Serena is snowed in with Jackson. The limelight of their careers had been trying to push them together for a while. Even though one thing or another always seemed to get in the way.

Serena needed a break away from everything. Every person that came into her path wanted something from her. Why couldn't people be as loving and faithful as Gizmo? Serena changed her appearance and holed up in a remote location till her do
I received a copy of this book from the author. I was not required or compensated to give a favorable review.

She find Gizmo the cutest little dog and also a little thief. But he is also the reason the Jackson ends up in her home. He is in Austria to do a Christmas special. She r ...more

I loved everything about this book. I was so caught up in the lives of the two main characters. Serena Wilson is an actress desperately needing some time away from the spotlight and Jackson Bennett is a professional newsman trying to get through life without his wife who died two years ago.
I loved the picturesque village in Austria and the beautiful cabin where Serena is staying with the cute puppy, Gizmo. I would like to stay there with Gizmo too! Throw in the undeniable chemistry between Ser

Snowbound with an Heiress is an incredibly sweet story about two people, and a dog too, who need a little love in their lives. Cover to cover, Jennifer Faye kept me engrossed and rooting for Jackson and Serena to get their happy ending.
Moving on can be the most meaningful and sometimes hardest thing to do in life. Widower Jackson Bennett is learning that fact the hard way. When he's rescued by the beautiful, actress in hiding, Serena Winston, Jackson starts to feel again.

OK, somehow this book ended up hidden on my bookshelf without getting read back at Christmastime. But I just found it again last night and was looking at the description, opened the book and ... I was hooked. I started reading and couldn't put it down until I'd finished. But that seems to ALWAYS happen with a book by this author. I always find them so easy to read, and I get engaged with the characters right away, and want (no, NEED) to know what happens to them so I just have to keep turning th ...more

A sweet read for Christmas.

To get my quibble out of the way, the title is a misleading - while the heroine is an heiress, that's not why she was off hiding from the world.

What I really enjoyed was the way in which the characters worked with each other to make sense of what was going on between them. Well it didn't always work - the thing that pushes them apart an example thereof, they did give each other understanding of why they behaved the way they did.

If you love holiday romances you will enjoy this book.

Serena Winston, a famous movie star, decides to escape to a small cabin in Austria. What she doesn't expect to find is hunky TV host Jackson Bennett. Serena's dog Gizmo causes Jackson's car to crash and Serena finds him injured. She lets Jackson stay with her in the cabin where the romance begins. This is a wonderful book full of romance. I would highly recommend this book!

I am going to miss these characters. I look forward to reading more

"Snowbound with an Heiress" by Jennifer Faye is a great contemporary romance, and once I picked it up I didn't want to put it down. Serena Wilson wants to escape her life as an actress, and her user ex boyfriend for a while. She runs into Jackson Bennett, who is the host for 'Hello America,' when he almost runs over her dog. Both are trying to escape from their everyday lives and meet accidentally in the Alps. Seems like Serena's dog somehow played matchmaker for her and Jackson.

I won a copy of this book in a goodreads giveaway. I love the cover of the book.

A heartwarming story about two couples snowbound in a secluded mountain cabin. An adorable dog named Gizmo who helped bring them together. I just loved Gizmo. He is so adorable. A story about love, second chances and trust issues. I loved every minute of the story. Very well written and a great cast of characters that will melt your heart.
Delightful weekend read! Us ladies can understand the frustration that Serena felt when her getaway was interrupted, especially when she realizes who the guy is. But as is usually the case, dogs know best and tend to bring people together for a reason. A romantic book to read in front of the fireplace at your next cabin getaway.

I really enjoyed this Christmastime Romance. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 5* rating and it touched my heart. Add a pup who is a little thief to stir things up a little and you get extra action. It made me smile and shed a tear or two. A nice followup Christmas ending too.
Linda Rimer-Como
Such an interesting story line; a snow storm, a small dog, a beautiful setting and the Christmas holiday. The characters are strong but have an uncertainty about where life is leading them. Can they find happiness together? Great read, lovely story.

I voluntarily read and reviewed this book; all opinions expressed are my own.

I really enjoyed this book ! This dealt with Christmas but not only that but when a stranger loses something and then another car avoids her lost item and gets into a bind himself. You just never know when you are going to need the help of another. Jennifer hits a home run with this book!

I have enjoyed every book I have read by Jennifer Faye and this book was no exception. I can honestly see this book being made into a movie for Hallmark. The plot has already been described in other reviews so I will only say that Serena and Jackson both learn to love and trust again.

Easy read centered around Christmas time with a snowbound couple and an adorable, mischievous dog. The characters have good chemistry as they work through his grief and her distrust.
