This firefighter has the perfect gift for a single mom and her little girl—if they’ll take him.
A stand alone holiday story from New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.
All Bradley Ford wants this holiday season is a date or three with sweet Hanna Lane. He’s the new fire chief, recently returned to Heart Falls to help his father after an accident. And while he wasn’t expecting to find someone like Hanna so soon, Brad’s certain that Hanna—and her adorable daughter, Crissy—are perfect for him and his plans to settle down.
Hanna’s been taking care of herself since she became a single mom at sixteen. The only pure, honest love she trusts is her little girl’s, but for the first time in eight years, her libido flares to life. Something about Brad draws her like a moth to a flame—which is always a bad idea for the moth.
When a fire leaves Hanna and Crissy homeless, Brad offers them shelter at his family’s homestead. Crissy insists they’ve moved in with Santa. Hanna’s not sure how she keeps ending up under the mistletoe with Brad. And Brad? He’s hoping for the best Christmas gift of all…

Loved this book! The characters Bradley and Hanna are amazing, they are fun and exciting and the storyline is interesting and full of adventure and romance. Amazing Read from start to finish. 55
What a great feel good Christmas Novella and side story for the Heart Falls series. Bradley, Hanna and Crissy’s story was very touching and sweet. But I have to say Crissy’s character stole the show.... she was just adorable! Here’s hoping that there will be another Novella on Mack & Brook’s story!!! Can’t leave us hanging.... 55
Loved this book! I love this author, she never disappoints. This was such a great feel good warm story. I found myself smiling a lot while I was reading. Brad and Hanna are such wonderful characters. Plus little Crissy and Patrick are such great secondary characters. I got so lost in this book that I didn’t want it to end. I couldn’t put it down, I read it in one sitting. It’s a quick very satisfying read. Kiddo Ms. Arend for another great book! I received an ARC for an honest review. 55
ARC in exchange for an honest review. I’ve been reading Vivian Arend’s books for a number of years. This story featuring Hanna and Brad does not disappoint. Within just a few minutes you are hooked. All that was missing was reading this book by the fire with a decadent hot coco or glass of wine. Romantic and sweet with a sensual twist. A truly heartwarming read. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. 55
I have always like Vivian Arend writing style. She has the ability to transport you to the book world. This book is not an exception!! A strong firefighter who puts a lot effort in saving lives as much as loving and caring for an extraordinary single mom touched my heart. It was really hard to put this book down not only because the love story but the nadie of the season! I recommended this book a lot!! 55
A terrific Christmas read. Past hurts, bad luck, a blizzard, a child, a substitute grandpa, a strong soft-hearted firefighter...what’s not to love in this story! And an HOE that includes some pretty hot scenes. Good to see strong character development. 45
Awesome read can not wait for the next book about Luke. 55
I wasn’t sure anything could be as good as the six pack ranch books. BUT Heart Fall is turning about to be an awesome series. Brad and Hanna’s story is so sweet and heart warming that your going to need a tissue and maybe a cold shower. Definitely a five star book. 55
