After years in captivity, waiting for a rescuer who never came, Tessa Woods meets a mysterious stranger who's determined to help bring down a human-trafficking ring and save the other victims…including her child. But can she put all her dreams of a merry Christmas into the hands of a handsome agent?
Colby agent Riley Porter thinks being a former SEAL has prepared him for anything. When he goes undercover to find Tessa, he doesn't expect his professional mission to become personal. Yet caring for the brave, passionate woman who's ready to risk her life to end an evil cycle is far beyond his control. As the danger escalates, Riley must convince Tessa to do the impossible for their own survival: trust him to protect her.
