Love Under Construction Book 3
A holiday romance
To claim the love of her life, she must make peace with a painful past
Mandy never planned to return to Newburgh, New Hampshire, the hometown that unfairly branded her a slut, but she has no choice. Her father has died, and she'll be spending Christmas settling his affairs. She hopes to get in and out of town without attracting the looks of disgust that drove her away, but when a certain Oakley-wearing, Harley-riding cop starts hanging around, an old crush is revived and the rumor mill restarts with a vengeance.
Cole has always been attracted to Mandy, but he has never acted on it. Besides being sixteen years older than her, he was friends with her father. The rumors people in town spread about her were bad enough without an inappropriate relationship adding fuel to the fire. But when Mandy returns to Newburgh fully adult and looking more gorgeous than ever, he can’t keep his distance, especially when an old secret of her father’s surfaces and puts her in danger. He’ll stop at nothing to protect her, but convincing her to stay in Newburgh, with him, will take a Christmas miracle.

"Ladies you are going to want this "Cole" in your stocking for Christmas."
-Goodreads reader Shelly
"Wow.. WoW...freaking WOW! Did I mention wow?!?!?
"When I was given the chance to read this book I knew I had to. I lovedReckless so very much and had a really good feeling that Cole in my Stocking was going to be just as much of an emotional roller coaster...did I call that one right or what!
The story line was epic. The characters were well developed, real, emotional, addictive...perfectly written really!"
