The bestselling Hero's Welcome series continues with a juicy Christmas romance, a short novel set in Seaside, North Carolina, where the bustling military base keeps this small town stocked with dedicated, lovable heroes.
Three-hundred-and-sixty-four days a year, Allison Carmichael doesn't mind being single. It sure beats dating another loser, and it keeps her heart safe. Then there's that three-hundred-and-sixty-fifth day: Christmas Eve, the traditional time her entire family gathers together—and gangs up on her, demanding to know when she's going to get married. This year, she swears, is going be different. And that's why, at a charity auction she's throwing on-base, she buys herself a man.
Sergeant Troy Matthews insists that he's not for sale. His time is, though, and he's happy to donate it. Happier still when he learns the identity of the winning bidder: the redhead with the killer good looks and smart mouth who runs the veteran's center. Allison needs Troy's help to fool her family into believing they're an item, and he's all too happy to indulge her. But by the time Christmas Eve rolls around, their little charade is working a little too well . . . because Troy's falling head over heels.
Allison needs a date for Christmas Eve with her family. No one permanent just someone to keep her mother off her back. Her family picks apart any man she introduces them to so Troy is the perfect man! He has no interest in a relationship and she only needs him for one night. Troy doesn't mind Allison won him in the auction. He can't wait to get to know her better. Though the more he gets to know the more he likes. As the two are constantly thrown together their explosive chemistry takes off and the story flows perfectly with the ups and downs of their fake relationship.
