Three ideals every Marine lives by, and Jasper Watkins is no different.
Only he’s lost his edge. He’s failed in his duty to keep someone safe, not once, but twice, and he doesn’t know why. He blames himself and feels he’s lost the respect of the people who matter to him. To get his head on straight, he goes to ground in a little nowhere town where he won’t be found.
Only fate throws a wrench in his plans in the form of a beautiful blonde who loves Christmas, kittens, and sassing him. He soon finds himself caught up in her secrets—secrets that may get them both killed.
Wrong place wrong time.
If she’d just stayed in the wedding tent, she never would have seen men dumping body parts, and she’d be safe and sound in her Miami apartment putting up Christmas decorations.
Instead, she finds herself hiding at her cousin’s farm, bunking with a complete stranger who thinks he’s all that. And he is. Just don’t tell him.
The more time she spends with her unwanted housemate, the more she starts to unravel the mystery that is Jasper Watkins.
She finds herself falling fast and hard for a man who can break her heart, but he also has the ability to save her not only from the cartel, but from herself.
Christmas is a time to bring people together, and if the two of them get out of each other’s way, they might just find their own Christmas miracle.
