A Cavanaugh Island Novella
By Rochelle Alers (Electronic Book, 2014)
This Christmas novella is set in charming, Sanctuary Cove featuring popular characters from Rochelle Alers' bestselling small-town, Cavanaugh Island contemporary romance series.

Iris Nelson's decision to start over is complete. The former art teacher ends her marriage with her cheating husband, graduates pastry school, and relocates from Baltimore to Sanctuary Cove after she secures a position to work at the Muffin Corner where her designer cakes make her a local celebrity. She becomes involved in the island's long-time holiday tradition of "Adopt a Family," when she connects with a single mother, Tempest Ward, and her young daughter, Layla.

Army Master Sargent Collier Ward, after being deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan is looking forward to returning to Sanctuary Cove to reconnect with his sister and niece. Although his hometown hasn't changed much, he is pleasantly surprised to find beautiful, talented Iris Nelson bonding with his family.

As the islanders gear up for the holidays, Collier and Iris find themselves caught up in the festivities and each other, until one passion-filled night changes their lives forever. When Collier finds his leave coming to an end, he is faced with the decision to reenlist or return to civilian life with a woman that promises a love for all time.
