…And who happens to be staying at his sister’s place over the holidays, while Joe’s sister is away. But Joe isn’t quite sure he wants to be a living Christmas present to runaway law student Gabi Preston.

Joe thinks the sassy sweetheart he nicknames “Trouble” won’t inconvenience anything but his healthy sex drive. But when he discovers the reasons Gabi escaped from her life, he aches to give her everything she’s never had. As the magic of the season draws them together, the gift of love is the only one worth giving…


I love to take a detour and spend time in Twilight at Christmas time!! It is the best little town to visit!!

If you loved the movie The Holiday, you will adore this book! The romance  is a little bit sexier, Gabi and Joe heat up those cold winter nights!

I’ll Be Home for Christmas is a heartwarming tale of letting go of the ghosts of Christmas past in order to find a happily ever after.

The Perfect Holiday Romance.


He was kissing her! Why was he kissing her?
Why ask why? Just go with it.
But she was frozen, breathless and pulsating.
When was the last time she’d been kissed like this? So forcefully, so certain, so perfect. Seriously, had she ever been kissed like this? She wracked her brain. Nope. Definitely not.
Gabi sucked in a startled breath as snippets of half- formed thoughts pushed through her mind.
Ooh and aah.
And yes.
And oh good Christmas but he tasted fantastic. Peppermint. Coffee. Heat. Moisture. Ooh- la- la.
His lips were rough in a deliciously outdoorsy, He- Man kind of way, and his big strong hands spanned her waist. But the pressure of his mouth was surprisingly gentle. Incredibly gentle. Lurking underneath his controlled restraint she felt a jolting current of masculinity so potent it deserved a “Danger: Live Wire” label.
She didn’t mean to do it, but she couldn’t help herself. Headily, she kissed him back, opened her mouth and traced his lips with the tip of her tongue. Venturing slowly, testing the waters, keeping her eyes wide open, watching him as he watched her.
A ragged groan rolled from his throat, and for one long, sweet moment their mouths fully merged and they surfed the heated kiss together.
Gabi’s head was a carousel, whirling, spinning, twirling. Such a ride. What a thrill. Was this really happening? Could she be dreaming?
Either way, she wasn’t arguing. It had been so long since someone had kissed her. So long since her heart pounded, on fire with want and need.
She actually wanted something. A huge step in Gabi’s world.
Without warning, he pulled away, stepped back. Ended the kiss. Party over. Boo.
She blinked, still caught in the daze of their kiss. “Well what?” she asked, her voice coming out fuzzy and dreamy.
“Did it work?”
“Did what work?”
“The hiccups.”
Oh that. She’d forgotten about them. Gabi put three fingers to the lips he’d branded so thoroughly and realized something miraculous.
Her hiccups were gone.
