THIS CHRISTMAS HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Putting his wild ways behind him, Jedediah Stark became a sheriff, ranging the frontier to uphold the law and the tin star he wears. It's a solitary life but it suits him well enough—Jed was orphaned as a child and he's made his peace with loneliness. Yet one woman has loved him as long as she can remember: beautiful Sadie Johanson. Jed grew up on the Johanson's farm and he has Sadie's parents to thank for setting him on the right path. But he's convinced he's not good enough for her . . .
Then Jed rescues a young boy and Sadie takes the orphan under her wing, just in time for a season of unexpected blessings and reawakened love. Nonetheless, the dedicated sheriff must leave and ride out as he always does. Yet when a fierce snowstorm bears down, Jed comes home at last, vowing to spend this and every Christmas where he truly belongs: in Sadie's arms . . .
