Retrieving the mail from his old apartment brought more than just letters for Vince Cutler. When he opened the door on the lovely Jolie Wheeler, and rooms he hardly recognized, he knew he’d found the person to fix up his bare new bachelor quarters.

Though she tried to keep her distance from Vince, his sweet embrace made it difficult. And all the while the spirit of Christmas was working within Jolie’s heart to reconnect her with her family…and with Vince.
