"Jessica Scott should be on every reader's list."
--Brenda Novak, New York Times Bestselling Author


There's nothing in the world Army Sergeant Vic Carponti loves more than his wife and his country. Smart-mouthed and easy tempered, he takes everything as a joke . . . except his promise to come home to his wife, Nicole, for Christmas. As he prepares to leave for his latest deployment into Iraq, Vic will do everything he can to shield his beautiful, supportive wife from the realities of war . . . and from his own darkest fears.

As a career army wife, Nicole Carponti knows just what to expect from her husband's tour of duty: loneliness, relentless worry, and a seemingly endless countdown until the moment Vic walks through the door again. But when the unthinkable happens, Nicole and Vic's bond is tested like never before and changes everything they believe to be true about the power of love and the simple beauty of being home for the holidays.

Fantastic Christmas story!

I'm a sucker for a good military romance. I'm also a sucker for a good Christmas romance. Combine the two and it's a 5-star read for me. I love the fact that it's an already married couple fighting to keep it together between deployments. Vic and Nicole Carponti have a beautiful relationship but Vic fears his deployments are taking a toll on his wife. Vic is always the funny one. He's always keeping it light so the mood doesn't get too dark. This deployment feels different to both him and Nicole but neither says anything about it. Travel down that military road with Vic Carponti and see how this funny guy deals with the tragedies of war.

This is an emotional, real-life-like look at the toll war takes on married couples. Jessica Scott has captured the feelings, fears, and all of the military member and his/her spouse. I have not read the first 2.5 books in this series but I will correct that oversight immediately! I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this fantastic author!

Insightful & sexy

I love this whole series. This latest installment is a heartfelt Christmas reunion. I've read several Christmas romances, this one felt REAL!
