Federal park ranger Carter Williams dislikes kids almost as much as he dislikes Christmas. He chose his career to escape human contact, not embrace it. And no matter how much his husband Owen tries to sway his opinion, Carter is a grump who would rather ignore the holiday. Owen’s efforts are put on hold, however, when they get a call about six missing foster kids lost in the park.Ranger Station Haven by S.A. Stovall
Christmas Eve takes a turn for the worse when Owen injures himself rescuing the children. Stranded in a snowstorm until dawn, Carter has to keep Owen awake and healthy while simultaneously watching six runaways. What he thinks is a nightmare come to life is actually a beautiful gift in disguise—the kids transform the ranger station into a Christmas wonderland. And before it’s all said and done, they might transform Carter’s heart as well—if he can keep his bah humbug attitude in check.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Why did I cry when Carter, who reaaaally hates children made them hot chocolate, wrapped Christmas present that they never had, gave them Owen's cookies only they didn't have to pretend that plain bread in Christmas day is a cookie?
Why did I cry when Carter the children hater told Owen that Owen can be a good father, and suggested adoption?
Read this book and you'll know why, and can't resist to love Carter the way Owen does!
Why five stars? Because!
Christmas magic did something to Carter, and the children, six of them, were finally can have a place they called home! So freaking beautiful!
