"Jackson brings the quaint Southern town to life in a memorable holiday romance complete with affable characters."—Publishers Weekly on One Christmas Wish
It’s Christmas in Catalina Cove, a time of promise and second chances. But when you’re starting over, love is the last thing you’re wishing for…
Vaughn Miller’s Wall Street career was abruptly ended by a wrongful conviction and two years in prison. Since then, he’s returned to his hometown, kept his head down and forged a way forward. When he is exonerated and his name cleared, he feels he can hold his head up once again, maybe even talk to the beautiful café owner who sets his blood to simmering.
Sierra Crane escaped a disastrous marriage—barely. She and her six-year-old goddaughter have returned to the only place that feels like home. Determined to make it on her own, Sierra opens a soup café. Complication is the last thing she needs, but the moment Vaughn walks into her café, she can’t keep her eyes off the smoldering loner.
When they give in to their attraction, what Sierra thought would be a onetime thing becomes so much more. Vaughn knows she’s the one. Sierra can’t deny the way Vaughn makes her feel, but she’s been burned before. With Christmas approaching, Vaughn takes a chance to prove his love, and it will be up to Sierra to decide if her one Christmas wish—true happiness—will come true.

A woman wary of love can't resist her attraction to a handsome ex-con in Jackson's sensual fifth Catalina Cove romance (after Follow Your Heart). Sierra Crane is focused on running the Green Fig, her booming soup café in Catalina Cove, La., and raising her six-year-old goddaughter, Teryn, following the death of Teryn's mother and Sierra's best friend. She has no time for a relationship, and her messy divorce from her cheating husband makes her especially uninterested. Even so, she feels an instant connection to Vaughn Miller when he walks into her restaurant and makes "every hormone in her body sizzle." The pair strike up a friendship that rapidly deepens as Vaughn bonds with the lovable Teryn and confides in Sierra about how his former fiancée left him when he was wrongfully convicted of a crime. In turn, Sierra shares details of her disastrous marriage. Though both are burdened with difficult pasts, Vaughn is determined to convince Sierra to take a chance on a relationship. Jackson brings the quaint Southern town to life in a memorable holiday romance complete with affable characters. Romance readers will appreciate Sierra's conflicting desire to protect her heart and take a chance at future happiness.
The story was great. They met on paper before meeting in person. A love that is hard to find. Jackson makes you want to be one of the characters. Love this story.
It was a captivating read, once I started, I couldn’t put it down! Thank you for a nice story! I like the message of the independent woman learning of real love that is patient and faithful and withstanding.
Typical HEA romance. The story was entertaining and steamy. Quick read, plenty of angst, drama, sweetness and a small amount of nasty evilness with a holiday theme. Excellent addition to your TBR list.
