Book Blurb

Nothing makes Christmas better than having a loved one return from overseas.

Being alone for the holidays isn’t good for anyone. Riley is spending Christmas alone as his partner Jaxon is serving overseas in Afghanistan for six months. His bar, Tumbleweeds, offers no respite and Riley finds himself missing his partner more and more as the holiday approaches.

Jaxon has been relieved of his duty and has managed to get stateside in time for Christmas. He wants to surprise Riley, but the weather may not hold long enough for him to make it. As Christmas approaches, both men realize that the thing they want more than anything is to be with each other for the season. As Riley closes his bar, he gets a present he’ll never forget and be forever grateful for.

Book Review

There is absolutely no fun in spending Christmas separated from the one you love, but this is what Riley, owner of the ‘Tumbleweeds’ bar, is facing. His partner, Jaxon, is in the Air Force and deployed in Afghanistan – and that includes Christmas this year. Riley has been wishing for a Christmas miracle, of course, but he is a realist and not holding out much hope for it to actually happen. It isn’t the way the world works, right?

Luckily for Riley, I would have lost that bet, had I taken it.

If you like stories set in small towns where you never know how people are going to react to a gay couple, if you like Christmas miracles, and if you’re looking for a read that is emotional and hot, then you might like this short story.
