When Chase risked his life to save a brother and sister just before Christmas, his life becomes entwined with theirs more intricately than he could have imagined. Emotional and moving, this is a story of a young man whose troubled heart is tested by the one thing he is unprepared to face, love.

It's that time of the year where the days are shorter and the nights longer and what better way to ease the bite of Jack Frost by curling up with some heartwarming holiday stories?

 Cheree's my girl and though I'm still itching for the sequel to Shadows, I'm looking forward to this lovely holiday novella of hers. 


When she saw Chase watching them, her brow creased almost imperceptibly. “Do you have somewhere to go? You need to get your head looked at.”

In more ways than one, Chase thought. “I’ll be fine,” he said aloud, though the dark spots dancing in his vision threatened otherwise. He limped slowly toward the street light they stood next to at the mouth of the alley. The light made a circle in the thin layer of snow that covered the sidewalk. In the light the snow looked clean, pristine even, but when the sun rose, the few rays that reached between the decrepit buildings would reveal the dirt and debris that never left the derelict side of the city.

She shook her head, her frown deepening. “No, you won’t.”

Chase’s brow furrowed in exasperation. “I can take care of myself.”

She made a show of looking him up and down. “I can tell,” she replied. “You’d better come with us.”

Surprised, Chase brushed his hair back from his eyes. “With you?”

She shrugged. “My mom’s a nurse. She’ll take care of you.” Chase wondered if that was supposed to sound as ominous as it came out. “Besides,” she continued, “we can’t leave you here in your condition after what you did for us.”

Her tone left no room for argument. The boy, Matty, looked from one to the other. He smiled at Chase, obviously used to his sister’s obstinate ways.

“Um, okay?” Chase said as more of a question than an agreement. He was confused as to what he had just accepted, and the pain-filled fog in his throbbing head wasn’t making things easier.

“Good,” she replied. She took Matty’s hand again and waited for the taxi. After a second, she turned back. “I’m Clara,” she said, “And this is Matty.”

“Chase,” he replied. “Pleased to meet you.”

She gave him an exasperated look and turned away as though she didn’t know how to deal with him.

Chase smiled and leaned wearily back against the wall to wait for their ride. He didn’t know what he would find when he got there, but it had to be better than a stone bench and another cold, sleepless night.
