A Home for Christmas by Ann Vaughn

A Home For Christmas


Single mom, Jenna Blackwell wasn't having a very good start to the Christmas season; her purse got stolen on Black Friday. She's cursing her luck and herself for even being out in the Black Friday madness when the store manager brings in Riley Stanton, a former Navy SEAL who chased down the thieves and recovered her purse. Jenna is blown away by Riley: his looks, his smile, the fact that he ran down the purse snatchers, everything.

Riley Stanton had no idea when he chased down the kids who stole a few purses that he would walk into a room and have his life changed forever. He looked into Jenna's eyes and saw a strength in her that he found intriguing.

Riley soon learns that Jenna is everything he ever wanted in a woman. He falls for her and for her son harder than he expected to. Jenna is cautious but welcoming and hopes that she and her son can give Riley the one thing he hasn't had in years, A Home for Christmas.

Jenna never expected that getting her purse stolen would turn into the best thing that could ever happen to her.  When she met the person man who stopped the thieves - she got more than her purse back - she got a date for breakfast! 
Riley knew the minute he met Jenna that there was something there.  She's a single mom, raising her 10 year old son - and he's and ex-Navy Seal trying to forget the past and the pain of war.  From the first day they met, they were practically inseparable.  Getting to know each other was so easy - especially after realizing that they both knew each others families.  But, Jenna still had to be careful because her son, Cam, was still the most important person to her - and she worried how he would take to her and Riley and any relationship they may start to have.

Riley was such a caring and tender guy - he really had Jenna and Cam's best interests at heart right from the beginning.  He knew things were moving fast with them - but he knew what he wanted, and was going to do what needed to be done to protect that.

This was a great Christmas read - including all the things that Christmas should be about - love, family, forgiveness, hope and home.
