Gifting Love by Kadee McDonald


They’ve been bickering since the day they met. Now they’re neighbors.

Former Marine Ryan Pearson came home safely from his last deployment, but his best friend wasn’t so lucky. Now Ryan has to put on a brave face and soldier through his twin sister’s holiday wedding. Too bad he’s paired with his sister’s friend Delia, who criticizes him at every turn.

Grief counselor Delia Hughes has survived trauma of her own, but unlike Ryan, she’s moved forward with her life. His grumpiness and lack of ambition irritate her, but staying in a cabin at his family’s B&B seems like a way to find the peace and quiet she needs to finish her dissertation. Only now, living next door to him, they’re always running into each other. And she discovers she doesn’t mind that as much as she thought she would.

When Delia agrees to go with Ryan to help his late friend’s storm-ravaged community, they grow closer. Will the Christmas spirit turn these two enemies into sweethearts?
