Shannon Hayes is facing a set of firsts right now; the first holidays alone with her young daughter since her husband, David, was killed in Iraq. She is so unsure how to manage when a welcome invite comes from David’s family to stay for the holidays.
Ryan is David’s brother who rarely has come home. He has avoided it as much as possible. He is a Marine and unfortunately was there when David was killed. He made a promise to his dying brother to watch out for Shannon and her daughter, but his feelings for Shannon just might make that an impossible thing to do.
With the arrival of Ryan comes feelings and sparks from both Shannon and Ryan. Shannon is faced with the truth of David’s death and Ryan’s promise. But she, too, made a promise to David. With a loving family gathered for the holidays is there enough love to help Shannon and Ryan forge a future together?
Explosive and Hot! This couple’s chemistry leaps of the pages at you. What a great story filled with love and loss; add in a grand family, and Ryan oozes sex appeal. What more could you ask for in a romance? Ms. Richards does a great job and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
