After a month long of writing I decided I deserved a weekend to read. I picked up two books last night. No, they aren’t historicals, the store was out of those! 😦 But that is okay I was able to find two books that I have seen talked up all over the Internet.
When two orphaned boys and their aunt arrive for Thanksgiving supper at church, retired army colonel Brett Stanton feels his heart tugged. Despite having her hands full, young businesswoman Haley Jennings handles her nephews with a smile. Still, Brett can’t get too close to the needy trio. He lost his son and brother to the uniform, and isn’t about to set himself up for loss again. Soon sweet Haley and the boys remind him of old dreams—and teach him that new dreams provide the greatest hope for a perfect family Christmas.
Doesn’t Ruth’s book sound fabulous? I love wounded heroes and can’t wait to discover this one’s story and how the heroine helps him find a happily ever after. You can find out more about this story here.
Bodyguard Ellie St. James has one objective: protect her client…without letting her know. Pretending to be Rachel “Winnie” Winfield’s assistant lets Ellie stay close, but there’s an unexpected complication—Colt Winfield. Winnie’s grandson wasn’t in on the plans, and the suspicious marine biologist isn’t easy to fool. When the truth comes out, so do more threats to Winnie’s life. Trapped on a Colorado mountain, Ellie and Colt must trust each other to guard Winnie and find the stalker. Before this Christmas becomes their last.
I love a good suspense and when I read the back cover of this book I knew I had to read it. If you’re interested in reading it too, you can find it here.
I hope to have these read and reviewed soon.
