This was a short, sweet and super hot Christmas novella! Two strangers meet on the night before Christmas Eve and end up spending the night together in a remote cabin in the woods. Talking, wine, some major hot sexxin... What's not to like?! ;)

Short, sweet and sexy read. Who wouldn't want to be trapped in a cabin with a hunky soldier during the holidays? Merry Christmas to me!
2.5 stars

This was an okay story, albeit one with an overuse of adverbs. I tried really hard to ignore them but when the story failed to engage me, it became increasingly (yeah I did that on purpose) hard to do so.

I want to be shown the characters actions and reactions, not told them using silly adverbs.

excitedly, begrudgingly, warily, angrily, appreciatively, sleepily, hastily.....

Location 274 - I said nodding embarrassedly.
Location 573 - I laughed and looked embarrassedly at Trent.

If you are looking for something short you can read and finish in one sitting this is a great book to read. I normally read full length novels, but sometimes it's nice to read something short and sweet. I originally thought this book was just going to be about a soldier passing through and there wouldn't be any actual story behind it, but there was and it was enjoyable. Meghan met Trent when she bumped into his car where it was parked on the side of the road due to a tree being down in the road, ...more

Snowstorm. Woman rear ends soldiers car. They decide (rather stupidly) that the best idea is to trek through the woods. Soldier is a jerk, woman cries, they find a cabin and have sex. Then of course she invites him to have Xmas with her and her 5 year old daughter, because that's what you ask of random strangers with whom you've had a one-night stand.

It was free and there were no typos that I noticed. I realize it's a short story, but there just isn't enough emotion to get me interested.

While on her way to her parents to pick up her daughter, Meghan is stranded in a sudden snowstorm. Fortunately for her, she's not the only one.

Sexy soldier Trent is home on leave to bury his father when he's forced to stop because of a fallen tree blocking the road. He wasn't expecting the attractive lady whose car slide into the back of his jeep.

When Meghan decides to try and walk through the woods in hopes of reaching the other side of town, Trent cannot in good conscience allow her to go by h

Megan left her daughter with her parents to finish up her Christmas shopping and then on to a special night for the two of them. As she returns to pick up Hannah she finds the bridge blocked by a fallen tree. A jeep is sitting in the road empty, as she brakes to stop, her car gently bumps into the rear end. As she gets out to check the damage she notices a tall handsome soldier ...more

Sweet story. Liked how Meghan and Trent had a bad start. It had an original beginning but the rest was just ok. I think part of the reason was that it was written in first person and I prefer third person. So several times my mind automatically changed the wording to third person. That also made it seem like a young adult story despite the more mature plot line. Trent was very sweet especially with his brief meeting with Hanna, Meghan’s daughter. At the end, I found the beginning and the ending ...more

Christmas with a Soldier is the perfect curl-up-on-the-couch book. Although it's short, it's hot and very romantic. If you are looking for a sweet and sexy read with goodhearted characters, this is the book for you.
How romantic to find a cabin in the woods in the middle of being stuck in a snowstorm? Christmas with a Soldier starts with the couple meeting, being stuck and taking a hike to try to reach town. They go from unfriendly strangers to intimate lovers as two lonely people find each other in this sweet love story. And he likes kids too! This was a sexy and fun short story about Christmas

Not too much to say. Interesting, short, charming, & just plain pretty cool. A 3.5 to be exact. It was a little too short for my taste but still cool. Who wouldn't love a man in uniform even if he did start out being a huge jerk? I did!

I got this book as a free download and I really liked it. It was a nicely written sweet story that I had a hard time putting down. I loved the characters and story line. It sure got my recommendation.

Quick read about a woman who finds herself lost in the woods with a soldier. the soldier is rude and hateful, we later find out why, and leaves you wondering how this romance takes off. the story is a little cheesy and rushed.

short and sweet. Very sexy and fun. Only thing I don't like is that it doesn't seem to be a series and I want to know what happens lol.

Short and cute story. I liked how they didn't get off on the right foot. Would have loved to see his POV.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It caught my eye because of the cover, I won't lie. But the story was great, even if it wasn't a full length novel, which I usually prefer.l
