In the Appalachian Mountains, there is an old and honored Christmas custom. An empty chair is left at the dinner table for a stranger who may arrive in need of a meal or a friend. At the home of a lonely widow and her two daughters on Makim's Mountain in Georgia, a stranger does arrive two days before Christmas - but he brings an eviction notice with him.
Alone and suffering from heartbreak and holiday blues, Buck Grissom has holed up at home. The last thing this manly Georgia cop could comprehend is that a Christmas miracle is about to arrive at his door. Heavenly, beautiful 19-year-old Scarlet O'Hara Scraggs and her younger sister, Farrie, have come from nowhere but arrived with a secret. Scarlett and Farrie's story is heartwarming, but is it enough to defrost Buck? Will these three get what they really want for Christmas?

But his tour of colleges was getting wild. Then he announced on Harry King Live that he was a virgin! And that he was looking for a wife! And that he'd like to marry HER! Something had to give....
