Even though Devan Windsom finds an ominous threat scrawled across her coffee shop window, she refuses to let vandalism ruin her holiday cheer. Someone wants her—or her cafe—gone, and the police don't have any leads.
Mac Fergerson only wanted a cup of coffee, but now he can’t forget the heat of defiance in Devan’s smoldering gaze. Maimed during his last tour of duty, he's not interested in a relationship, but the audacious brunette is never far from his thoughts. When her stubborn determination puts her at risk, he offers to act as part-time security when she’s open late.
Christmas warmth soon sparks passion, but Mac hasn’t let anyone see his scars. Devan’s not a woman who scares easily, though, even when danger hovers near. Can Mac let Devan discover the man he’s become? Or will fear leave them both alone on Christmas?
