STOCKING FULL OF COLE
She was his first love and his first broken his heart. Now, she’s home for the holidays and chances are good she’ll break him again.
Once upon a time, Cole promised he’d marry Tamah, the most beautiful girl he’d ever seen. Of course, he was six and crushing on his babysitter. Then she broke his young heart and moved away.
Sometimes, you just know, and it doesn’t matter your age.
Becoming an adult matured Cole’s desire and strengthened his resolve, but his heart hasn’t changed. Tamah is still the one, and this time around, he’s old enough to get the girl and keep her. It’s time to claim his woman and get her where she belongs—in his arms. Forever.
Tamah might be a good girl, but this year, she’s getting Cole in her stocking.
It’s only dreams of you that have gotten me through this deployment. I want you in my life now and forever. I’ve waited for years. Don’t make me wait another day…
Widow Rachel Foster has done just fine getting by since her husband died from cancer ten years ago. She has her friends and her job to occupy her time. Sometimes, she’s lonely, but without close attachments, she doesn’t fear losing someone she loves. Besides…the only person she’s remotely interested in is completely unattainable. Or so she thinks.
Jason Hamilton has loved Rachel for years, waiting until he could prove himself mature enough for this woman ten years older than him. Fresh off a deployment in the Middle East, he’s sure the time is now and he’s equally sure she’s interested. He hopes so, because only his secret love letters to her got him through the longest eighteen months of his life. Now, he’s ready to make the fantasies in them come true.
