It's Christmas in Twilight, Texas. The Cookie Club is baking, the town is decorated, and Delta Force Operator "Hutch" Hutchinson has finally, reluctantly, returned home - only to get pepper sprayed by the delicious- looking stranger who's taken over his house. She says her name is Jane, and she immediately sets down ground rules. Top priority: no touching. For Hutch that isn't easy - he was wounded in action, but one part is still working very well.
Then Hutch learns the truth. Jane harbors a frightening secret - she's really Meredith Sommers, on the run from a dangerous ex-husband and desperately in need of the safety Hutch can provide. In that moment, he vows he'd do anything in his power to protect her. And as Christmas approaches, they discover that their love can conquer the past and overcome any obstacle - but what price will they pay?

While the story wasn't enthralling, it was okay. I would have finished it except the narrator was driving me nuts. She read as if every sentence ended with an exclamation point! She would do well reading to children, but I was actually a bit offended. And I'm not an overly sensitive person. I'm not one who criticizes, but really felt I had to let others know what they were in for.
I'm a stay at home wife and listen to audio books all the time while working on crafts.
Overall a good story but thought a different narrator could have been used.. Characters and storyline was good though.
