|He’s a country boy…
Firefighter Nate York isn’t the kind of guy she needs, but that hasn’t stopped him from wanting Allison from the moment he clapped eyes on her junior year. Years later, he’s still thinking about her. Even though his life is great, he can’t help but wish he was the polished, urbane kind of man who would catch her eye. He’s made himself satisfied with her friendship, but that’s not all he wants. Not by a long shot. And when an unexpected kiss makes him realize life isn’t lived standing still, he makes a move for the only thing he wants for Christmas. Her.
She’s an uptown girl…
Allison Kurtz keeps her time as filled as she possibly can. That way she can’t dwell on her string of failed relationships that stretches all the way across Texas. When an old friend cashes in on a favor, she happily agrees. Helping her buddy Nate pick out a Christmas puppy at Hopeful Paws will be a welcome distraction from her most recent failure in the romance department. But their simple friendship isn’t so simple anymore, and Allison’s worried that she’ll lose the one guy she’s always been able to trust if she falls for him. Can a Christmas together convince her that the one she’s been searching for has been right beside her all along?
The glow of their love will LIGHT UP THE TREE.
|He’s always loved her…
Fireman Chaz Fairchild has always held more than brotherly affection for his former step-sister—a wild child with a nose for danger. When Payton shows up on his doorstep without notice, days before Christmas, he knows she’s in trouble. He’ll do anything to keep her safe, but can he protect her from his forbidden desire? Touches turn to kisses and more as Chaz does his best to show Payton he’ll put it all on the line for her.
She knows she’s bad for him…
Undercover DEA Agent Payton Harris can’t let anyone too close. But Chaz is her anchor, her heart, the person who keeps her going at the darkest of times—and her enemies know it. Loving him means putting him at risk, which is why she has to walk away from any chance of a future with him. But when Chaz is taken prisoner by the people she’s been hunting, Payton will have to trade herself for his safety or risk losing the one person she’s ever been able to love.
Danger threatens to send this holiday UP IN SMOKE.
