Description:

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 Thoughts: 

I got this book for a fair and honest review through Edelweiss.  With that being said I loved this story which follows Brian "Hutch" Hutchinson who has been healing in a hospital after being a solider in the war.  Having his finger cut off and damage to his throat he has found himself unable to speak.  He ends up being discharged from the hospital and the military and no where to go but home.

Meredith Sommers is living in Twilight working at a spa as a masseuse.  She is hiding under an alias of Jane and is hoping this time she can stay longer than other homes she's lived in.  When she finds her roomate Ashley has run off with a new man, Jane is worried that Ashley is in trouble.  Jane is taking care of her son Ben plus Ashley's daughter Kimmie until Ashley shows up or Ashley's broth arrives.

When Brian arrives in Twilight he is met with pepper spray and a crazy woman trying to protect herself.  Little does she know Ashley's brother is in town and can't communicate to his niece or Jane his problems without the help of a board to write what he wants to say.  But where is Ashley and what happened to her?

I loved watching Hutch and Jane figure out their relationship and that sometimes PTSD isn't as bad as it is made out to be as both Hutch and Jane suffer from it.  Jane from her ex-husband and Hutch from what he has seen at war.  The two both have issues they have to work through but also find they can lean on each other when they need too.

I had never read this series and now am regretting not checking out this great series full of promising characters and brightness in these stories!  Such a big fan of Ms. Wilde's keep up the great stories!
