August 1939. Roger Miller and Jack O’Brien have been close since childhood. By the time they realize there’s more between them than friendship, Jack is leaving their sleepy Iowa town for college. But they console themselves knowing he’ll be home for Christmas. Right?
It is Christmas before they see each other again, but that Christmas comes six years and a world war later. Aged, beaten, and shaken by combat, they’re not the boys they were back then, but their feelings for each other are stronger than ever.
Neither know the words to say everything they’ve carried since that peacetime summer kiss, though. Even as they stand in the same room, there’s a thousand miles between them.
But maybe that’s some distance the little angel in Roger’s rucksack can cross.
This 24,000 word novella is part of the multi-author Christmas Angel series, and can be read as a standalone.
The Christmas Angel Series
In 1750, a master woodcarver poured all his unrequited love, passion, and longing into his masterpiece—a gorgeous Christmas angel for his beloved’s tree. When the man he loved tossed the angel away without a second thought, a miracle happened. The angel was found by another who brought the woodcarver True Love.
Since then, the angel has been passed down, sold, lost and found, but its magic remains. Read the romances inspired by (and perhaps nudged along by) the Christmas angel through the years. Whether it’s 1700s England (Eli Easton's Christmas Angel), the 1880’s New York (Kim Fielding’s Summerfield’s Angel), the turn-of-the-century (Jordan L. Hawk’s Magician’s Angel), World War II (L.A. Witt’s Christmas Homecoming), Vietnam-era (N.R. Walker’s Soldier’s Wish), the 1990’s (Anyta Sunday’s Shrewd Angel), or 2018 (RJ Scott’s Christmas Prince), the Christmas angel has a way of landing on the trees of lonely men who need its blessing for a very Merry Christmas and forever HEA.

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…

“For some reason every time I touched that angel or looked at it, I remembered that if I got through the war, then I might see you again. Sometimes… sometimes that was the only thing that kept me going.”
This is a very beautiful second chance romance from one of my favorites, LA Witt.
As we knew, back then, being gay was forbidden and even Jack and Roger didn't know that they're gay, they're just, 'people lile us'.
After six long years and realized being with women is never an option, the angel worked her magic to let Roger and Jack see what they need to see and feel what their heart desire and comfortable in their own skin. And just be who they are.
We’d both survived a war that had killed our friends all around us. We were two men who needed each other in a world that didn’t allow it I don’t care what we’re supposed to do.
War is never pretty, but the, back home with the family demanded you to get married and happy, when all you want is being with a man you loved. A man, not a woman.
They had to make a decision after all.
And the decision and choice is only one. Being with each other. Be true to what they are and who they are.
Jack and Roger with a help of the angel figurine, finally found their happiness.
And I'm happy.
I just know I’ve spent all these years scared to death I’d never see you again. Now that we’re here again, I don’t give a damn what anybody else thinks. I love you, I always have, and I’ll understand if we can’t be together...
I didn’t need something to shut out the fear and stave off the loneliness—I needed this man to know that I loved him, that I had always loved him, and that I couldn’t and wouldn’t stop loving him.
Such a gorgeous story, Lori wrote a beautiful historical romance that is hard to forget. And Roger and Jack will stay with me for a very long time.
