A single mother for nine years, Gage had resolved not to change the way she lived; she was doing just fine the way things were. She’d fought to keep her family together and had broken the bonds of control over their lives. Wanting, or finding love again definitely wasn’t on her list. Now Matt Street threatens to alter that safe livelihood; safe from a man and his love.

Matt Street settles into the life he wants…the life of a bachelor, until he meets Gage Landon. She was the one woman he couldn’t forget. Didn’t want to forget.
Gage and Matt were brought together by accident. Could this be the year Christmas would bring Gage and Matt an unforgettable love? A love neither could cast aside?
