One sexy military man will have her seeing fireworks this holiday season...
Ashton's career is in a shambles, her dreams of traveling abroad are impossible, and her love life is in the toilet. Worse, one of her coworkers has decided she's the perfect girl for him. Too bad her heart is fixed on the guy she kissed beneath the fireworks on the Fourth of July. This Christmas is shaping up to be a disaster.
Trip McKinloch has never been the favorite son. McKinlochs are supposed to settle down close to home, marry, and help run the family pub. Instead, Trip joined the Air Force, has lived overseas for years, and is in love with a woman he shared one night with during his Fourth of July leave.
When Trip goes home for the holidays he is shocked to discover that the woman he cannot forget is now working as a bartender in his family's pub. Worse still, Trip's brother Gavin has a hefty crush on Ashton and a grudge against Trip that could spell yuletide disaster. Now Trip has to find a way to convince everyone that the black sheep McKinloch has finally found the one woman who feels just like home.
