As Christmas gets closer, they discover more about one another and Heath realizes he has no wish to lose her. Can he make her understand that sometimes the best holiday surprise can be unwrapped when you first discover it?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
There were some things I liked about this story - the characters, his military past, the steamy sex scenes. However, I found her instant sexual response to him a little off-putting. If I found a stranger in the house where I was staying, I don't think my first reaction would be to pleasure myself in the shower. There were also many editing errors which made it hard to read at times.
House sitting in the cold North for Christmas holidays instead of being on a warm island wasn't in Kassia's plans. Things warm up for her when she finds out she isn't 'home alone.' She finds herself heating things up with the apartment owner's friend who was looking for a quiet place to deal with PTSD. A cute, quick read.
I enjoyed this. It was really cute.
