From best-selling author, J.H. Croix, a sensual and steamy Christmas romance set against the wilderness and beauty of small-town Alaska!
Gage Hamilton is a smoldering Navy SEAL and a man on a mission. He's returning to Diamond Creek, Alaska, to resurrect his dream of reopening Last Frontier Lodge. Marley Adams moves back home hoping to find a sense of security and safety after it was stolen from her.
Gage has spent many years successfully avoiding emotional entanglements. He is looking for nothing more than peace and sanctuary at his family's old ski lodge. His new neighbor, Marley, was definitely not part of his plans. Marley is a brainy computer whiz and way too sexy for Gage's own good. A man who prides himself on always being in control, Gage finds that he has little when it comes to Marley.
Marley only wants to get her feet back under her after her world was turned upside down in Seattle. She's been focused on little else beyond her work and is seriously out of practice with anything resembling romance...including the scorching hot attraction that sizzles anytime Gage crosses her path.
Gage and Marley are powerless against the magnetic pull between them. Steamy and snowy nights weave a spell around them. While Marley thought she escaped whoever set out to hurt her in Seattle, she finds the threat of danger has followed her to Diamond Creek. Gage must face the depth of his feelings for Marley when he realizes he will do anything to protect her. Can Marley and Gage discover love in time for Christmas? The magic of a white Christmas is right around the corner.
All novels in this series are full-length standalone novels with an HEA.

The narrator did an excellent job on both the female and male voice with the right amount of emotion,
Marley has moved back home after a robbery and pistol whipping while living in Seattle. Gage is reopening his grandparents ski lodge. They meet and have an attraction immediately that neither has felt before. The dialogue and secondary characters were enjoyable and added to the story. I like that it didn't drag on forever and both parties were cautious falling in love
Some steam, but not over done...I really liked both H and h.
Worth the credit and listen
I received this audio book from the author at no charge for an honest review. This is the first book in the series. I really enjoyed the premise of the story of two people with problems finding love and overcoming their problems together. The book is set in the mountains in Alaska at an old ski lodge. Gage, a retired Navy SEAL, returns to the ski lodge that he and his siblings inherit from their grandmother. Marley returns home after being attacked in her apartment in Seattle. There is suspense as they try to figure out who and why Marley was attacked. Gage and Marley have great chemistry and definitely care for each other.
This is a great listen and Hollis McCarthy did a wonderful job of narrating it. If I hadn't received the book, I would gladly have used a credit on it.
This book has it all, chemistry and suspense. the family dynamics are terrific, while the story line keeps your attention. The narration kept you wanting to listen until the book was finished.

Christmas on the Last Frontier is a good contemporary romance, not historical as I thought it would be. It was a fun book to listen to because the narrator did a good job giving voice to the characters. The characters were well rounded and fun and it made for a nice romance between them.

Romance with a mystery on the side.
The title had me fooled. I didn't read the book blurb before requesting this book. So basically it's a case of judging a book by it's cover. Which we all do, the first thing that catches our attention is the title and cover. In this case the cover and title are combined with a really good HEA story. So basically the whole package.
Great start to a new series. Marley and Gage are both seeking a fresh start. Each have their past issues and little experience in the love department. The attraction is undeniable for both of them. This is a romance book with plenty of sexual tension and steamy sex scenes, so if you don't like sex in your books this is not the book for you. If you like sex in your books definitely read on.
Hollis McCarthy did a great job as usual with the narration. Great voice. Good character voices. Very easy on the ears. Nice pace and clearly spoken.

"Very well written"
I never listen to an audiobook from this author before I received audiobook 3 in this series from the author herself. Because of that book, I decided to start this series from the beginning and that's the reason why I now write this :)
I really do like this contemporary romance series from J. H. Croix. First of because the story feels real - like stories without fantastic heroes and an unrealistic storyline. It contains great alpha males and sweet women, a lot of hot and steamy sex and in this one, you even find a bad guy. You also find two people who, despite not feeling sure about needing or wanting love, never let the love for each other go. The fight in this series is the inside fight in the main characters about accepting love finding them even when they weren't looking - but when sparkles fly they have to give in!
I love J.H. Croix descriptions of Alaska - actually so much that I really wanna visit Alaska myself even though I'm definitely more of a "sun-girl". The descriptions of the nature, people and the connections between people are so well written that you're almost able to watch the scenes in front of you while you listen to the narrator.
The narrator is well chosen for this series, and I'm so glad to see Hollis McCarthy has been narrating all 3 audiobooks in this series, and I cross my fingers she will be chosen as the narrator for the rest of the books in the series!
