ON A SILENT NIGHT
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart...
Five years ago, I lost my best friend. The last words he ever spoke to me were a plea to look out for his wife. I never meant to fall in love with her. I even ran from my feelings. Not that it did any good. Three years later, I still can't get her out of my mind. Now, I’m going to try to win her back.
Hopefully, I’m not on Santa’s naughty list because it will take a Christmas miracle to win her back.
After Jackson died, I didn’t expect to find love again. Still, things with Brody just felt... right. Which made it that much more confusing when he left with no explanation. Since then, I’ve worked on rebuilding my life. I started fresh in a new town, and even have a new man in my life. All of which complicates things when Brody shows up in search of a second chance.
Hang the mistletoe and string the lights, he’s going to need more than a jolly ole elf for me to consider re-gifting him my heart.
BACK TO YOU THIS CHRISTMAS
This Christmas, all I wanted was to wallow in self-pity until the woman I thought was the love of my life could explain why she left me at the altar. Instead, my buddy, Zach forced holiday merriment on me. I thought it was going to be a tinsel-laced nightmare... until his sister, Alexa, showed up. Turns out, she grew up into a gorgeous present I was insanely tempted to unwrap. Lucky for me, she shared my desire to meet under the metaphorical mistletoe... and let things heat up from there.
For the first time in months, Laura, my ex, wasn’t haunting my thoughts like the Ghost of Christmas Past. Which, of course, is exactly why she had to pick that moment to call and say she wanted to talk. I could only hope St. Nick had a playbook in his sleigh because things were about to get complicated.
I hated my job. I had no social life.
Somehow I had become so predictable after my last relationship ended, that the cashier at the local food mart already had my favorite wine bagged and waiting for me behind the counter when I walked in on Friday afternoon.
I needed to get away, from everything.
So when my best friend, Addie, called up and offered me a FREE weekend getaway, how could I say no.
Promises of a quiet weekend with a good book, warm fires, and flannel pajamas? Yes, please!
It had been eighteen months.
Eighteen months, since I had lost my wife in a car accident and learned that our marriage had been nothing but one big lie.
I’d done nothing but work and mope around my sister’s house, so when she told me to take her cabin for the weekend. Time alone, surrounded by nature and the fresh cold mountain air was exactly what I’d been needing.
However, my plans of being alone in the wilderness quickly vanished when I walked through the doors of the cabin and found my sister’s best friend drunk and half-naked on the floor of the very same cabin.
I’d hidden my crush on her for years. Perhaps, not well enough. After all, Addie must have set this up.
The weekend was about to get a lot more interesting.
