For Sasha’s Christmas gift, she got to pick one of my books.

She chose…SNOWBOUND WITH THE SOLDIER

Blurb:

Maybe this Christmas…?  

It has been seven long years since Kara Jameson last saw Jason Greene. Returning home as a wounded war hero, Jason looks a shell of the man she once knew. Yet her heart still skips a beat as if it was yesterday…. 

Stepping back into civilian life, Jason looks to Kara for help. But there's too much water under the bridge—not to mention too much lingering attraction. 

But it seems that the mountain weather has other ideas, and when Kara and Jason end up snowbound together they are forced to confront the ghosts of Christmas past.

 “Kara, are you okay?” Jason asked, moving next to her.

“I’m fine.” Her voice was barely more than a whisper. 

“It’s okay. You aren’t alone. I miss how things used to be, too.” 

The wind howled outside, while Jason’s heated gaze warmed her soul. The past and the present collided. His thumb brushed over her cheek and down her neck. Kara’s heart thumped madly. Could he feel the blood pulsating through her veins, making her head dizzy with need? 

His gaze dropped. His pupils dilated. He was going to kiss her. Her breath caught in her lungs. This was wrong. But it’d be only once. For old times’ sake. Drawn to him in the same manner a hummingbird craves sweet nectar, she licked her lips with the tip of her tongue. 

His head lowered. She should turn away....
