Ryder Rossi dropped out of life.
He came back from the war a broken and angry man. They gave him a Purple Heart, but it sits in the bottom of an old chest his dad gave him years ago. He doesn’t feel like a hero. Hell, he doesn’t even feel like a man. Honorable Discharge was what he got after losing a leg to a landmine. Hawk from the Insurgents MC has been his best buddy since Ryder came back to Pinewood Springs. The ruggedly good-looking biker used to be an Insurgent but he gave that up a long time ago along with everything else. All he wants is to ride his Harley and be left alone.
When Savannah Carlton and her young son, Timmy, homestead on Ryder’s property, he sees red. It doesn’t matter that the pretty blonde pushes some buttons in him that haven’t been in use for quite a while. He doesn’t want her near him, and her son reminds him of the son he’s been forced to forget.
Savannah is running away from her ex-husband’s family who want Timmy. Her beat-up RV died on Ryder’s property, and even though the surly biker tells her to leave, she sees kindness behind his anger. She finds herself making excuses to talk to him, but she doesn’t want to fall for Ryder. Her life is screwed up enough, and the last thing she needs is a high maintenance biker.
Can two mismatched, lonely people find the Christmas light in their darkened lives?

Let's start off by saying I am really loving this series and that this current story was such a treat for us and we loved it.
I loved the characters from the onset of the story.We loved Ryder and all his grumpiness.Savannah was such a sweet and loving mother.
I always pick a favorite character and mine this time around is going to be Ryder.Why? Well, for me Ryder went through so many changes in his personality in this story that we could not help but, be proud of him for all the healing he had gone through in just a short amount of time.Savannah did nothing special to help with that she did the things that came natural to her.In the short of amount of time she gave him what he wanted all along the love of a good women and a family of his own. We loved Ryder as our heart-broke for him and we felt his pain for all this man has had to over come from dealing with the lost and pain being a soldier caused him to the personal tragedies that his personal life wrought.
Savannah we loved her from the onset of meeting her and we found her to be brave,feisty,refreshing,sexy,love-able and had a sense of humor,caring and and was a wonderful mother.
Overall we loved the story from beginning to end and everything in between.The story was sweet and refreshing and all about healing and second chances for those who deserve their happily ever afters.The other characters were also funny and engaging and we loved how the kept us entertained.
