A novel by

He’s the only one who ever noticed her. Now he’s the only one who can keep her safe.


The only Christmas Mary Tobler ever experienced was as an eight-year-old child. After one boy noticed the dire conditions she and her mother were living in, he gifted them with a town’s care and warmth.

Now fourteen years later and weeks before a drastically different Christmas, Mary is alone in the world and out of options. She finally resorts to answering a mail-order bride ad in hopes of finding a brighter future and a sense of hope and security she’s rarely known. But the wealthy businessman who posted the ad is not the kind soul he appears to be.

Nathaniel Whitney instantly recognizes Mary as she steps from the train, now grown and beyond lovely. It would seem the girl he helped all those years before has become the woman who needs his aid once again. Pretending to be the wealthy man she's come to marry, Nathaniel quickly escorts her from the train station before his wretched employer notices her. But once she’s out of harm's way, he’s left with the dilemma of how to continue to keep her safe. Beyond poor himself, he can’t offer her the stability she seeks, but the hazel eyes that had beckoned to him as a boy are now upending his world completely.

Will the magic of Christmas be enough to save them both and gift them a second chance at finding home and a forever love?
