It's Christmas in Twilight, Texas. The Cookie Club is baking, the town is decorated, and Delta Force Operator "Hutch" Hutchinson has finally, reluctantly, returned home . . .

. . . only to get pepper sprayed by the delicious- looking stranger who's taken over his house. She says her name is Jane, and she immediately sets down ground rules. Top priority: no touching. For Hutch that isn't easy—he was wounded in action, but one part is still working very well.



Then Hutch learns the truth. Jane harbors a frightening secret—she's really Meredith Sommers, on the run from a dangerous ex-husband and desperately in need of the safety Hutch can provide. In that moment, he vows he'd do anything in his power to protect her. And as Christmas approaches, they discover that their love can conquer the past and overcome any obstacle—but what price will they pay?


My Review:

     What  another good addition to Lori Wilde's Twilight, Texas series. This story has Meredith going under the assumed name of Jane because she's on the run from her abusive ex-husband with her young son, Ben. She ends up rooming with a flighty young woman named Ashley and her young daughter in quiet Twilight. Things change one weekend when Ashley leaves town with a new man for the weekend, leaving Kimmee behind and ignoring a worried Jane's warning her that she  hardly knows the man. Soon afterwards, she ends up spraying a strange man in the face with pepper spray who turns out to be Ashley's older brother Hutch, an injured soldier and the true owner of the house.
     Things are tense in the house, Hutch barely knows his own niece and is recovering from injuries he received in the military and has a hard time communicating and must use his" miracle slate" to talk. They are both wary of the other, Meredith keeps a bag packed in case she has to run from her ex, and his Ashley does not return.
     Eventually, they work to build some trust, especially for the kids sake, and slowly come to heal and care for each other. Hutch is a good man, and Meredith  is a strong woman that finds someone that she can depend on him when things are tough.
     This story has it all. A touch of suspense, great chemistry, and charming kids  adding up to make this a wonderful blend of family and romance in Twilight, Texas. Lori Wilde knows just the right way to charm her readers and fans with stories of emotion and heart.

  2. It does, indeed, sound like this story "has it all." When you mix suspense with good romantic chemistry along with charming children, what's not to like??!! This truly will be one of my holiday reads. Can't wait! Thanks for the post. jdh2690@gmail.com

    1. I am glad you enjoyed my review, Janice. Another good thing about this story was that even though it is part of a series, it could be read as a stand alone. It mostly dwelt with the main characters and kids so you don't feel lost.
