A very Cottonbloom Christmas!
Jeremy Whitehurst has tried to leave his bad-boy behavior and tarnished image behind in Alabama for a fresh start in Cottonbloom, Louisiana. Unfortunately, trouble has dogged him across state lines. Stepping up and protecting a young woman from her abusive boyfriend earned him a beat-down and got him fired. Although the thanks in the girl’s dark eyes made it all worth it, he recognizes she’s just a different kind of trouble. A trouble he’s not sure he can stay away from.
One rebellious summer dented Kayla Redmond’s carefree innocence. Now her focus is on completing her associate’s degree for bookkeeping, and no one is going to derail her plans. Unfortunately, her job at Fournette Brothers Designs puts her in the path of the one man who has seen her at her worst, yet his blue eyes don’t judge her. He sees beyond the brokenness inside of her and rouses her wild side once more. But, that’s what got her in trouble in the first place.
Christmas is coming and Kayla’s ready to forgive herself and take a chance. But the holiday has only ever brought heartache to Jeremy. No Christmas miracle kept his mother clean or out of jail. Will one reckless night and some time spent in the back of a cop car be the best present Jeremy’s ever been given?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars ~ Would Receommend to a friend

This was a quick, fun trip back to Cottonbloom.
The holiday novella reintroduces us to two secondary characters, Jeremy (who first appeared in the Falcon Football series) and Kayla (a protege of Monroe's). A sweet story showing two people who have dealt with mistakes and come out the other side and seeing the power of love to melt the hardest of hearts.
Cottonbloom and Falcon favorites make cameo appearances giving fans of Ms. Trentham's a satisfying glimpse into what comes next for the beloved characters. If you have enjoyed the Cottonbloom series, this will be right up your alley.
