WARNING: If you have not read Smoldering, I highly suggest that you do before reading this novella. This book takes place while Riley is deployed to Afghanishtan.
Christmas is a time for family and friends. A time to be with those we love and cherish, the ones who make our heart beat. But when the love of your life is half way around the world, how do you let the spirit of the holidays lift you up and bring your cheer?
Kelsey and Riley spent more time apart then together early on in their relationship and now that it's repaired he's away for a whole different reason. Feeling the absence of Riley while he's deployed is taking a toll on Kelsey. She finds herself crying more often than not and distancing herself from the people who are there for her the most.
Riley has employed the help of some friends to make Kelsey's Christmas a special one. Leaving a series of notes and gifts behind to remind her of the good times they have shared so far, and the ones to come.
Can Kelsey handle one of the happiest holidays being away from the man who completes her in every way?
Will Kelsey scavenge for the strength she needs to take on the roll of a military girlfriend or will she crack under the pressure from the distance?
Only she knows how much she can take….
