Yuletide Protector by Lisa Mondello
This book is definitely full of suspense but it also deals with the real life problem of stalking. Detective Kevin Gordon has lived with the fact that fifteen years ago his sisters best friend was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. No one saw the signs of abuse while they were dating, and then it was too late. Now he is facing a crisis of an ex-husband who wants his wife dead. Kevin goes into protective mode with the stubborn woman. Is he reliving not being able to help Lucy or has this woman become more important for other reasons?

Daria Carlisle finally owns a home. It's big and will take a lot of money and work but it is hers. She never lived in one place for long as a child and she needs the anchor that this house provides. Suddenly her world is shattered when she is told George, her ex-husband, wants her dead but they don't have the proof to lock him up yet. At first she don't believe it, until her safe place is violated, her home. And it's obvious that George is behind it. She refuses to leave her home so the handsome Kevin Gordon starts watching her there. She sees his faith and how that is his anchor. Daria is not a believer but Kevin's example and actions speak his faith.

This story shows where greed and lack of control can lead. It shows the faith Kevin has that he knows he cannot let himself fall for Daria because she is not a believer, yet. And how we can either anchor on to materialistic things or our anchor can be with God, one changes and One does not.
