On the run with two small children and a third due within weeks, Adeline Spencer fears the approaching blizzard will seal their fate. An abandoned cabin is an answer to her prayers. She hopes it will shield them from both the storm and the enraged brother-in-law hot on her tail. But when a stranger knocks at the door, she is convinced they have been found by one of Ward’s lackeys.Blamed for the death of his friend, Sheriff Jonah Hale is determined to prove himself worthy of his badge, even if it means riding into a blizzard to check on a crazy miner. When Jonah reaches the cabin, he’s caught off guard by a pretty and very pregnant young woman wielding a skillet. Bound to a chair while the storm rages, and as Christmas settles in around them, he must find a way to earn Adeline’s trust…and perhaps her heart.

You know that moment when it's freezing outside and there's nothing better than snuggling up in the blankets with a nice cup of hot chocolate? Well, this book was my hot chocolate. So sweet and warming. I enjoyed every minute of it!

From the start, the story grips you and does not let up or disappoint. Unlike a few typical romances I've read, we dive head-first into the action with Adeline Spencer on the run with her two kiddos. Hiding out in a cabin, Adeline has no choice but to take hostage an uninvited guest, Sheriff Jonah Hale. I don't want to give too much away, but let's just say it will take more than eyelash bating from Sheriff Jonah Hale to get Momma Bear Adeline to free him.

The author did a fantastic job at developing characters that I immediately cheered for. My favorite was the little boy, Ethan. The brave sweetie had me laughing and smiling throughout. Lucette's obvious talent for humor was on point and made this all the more delightful.

Overall, very satisfied, and looking forward to more books from Lucette Nel. If you love danger, romance, humor, then this is for you! Highly recommend! 10/10
