The Riordan brothers may have a reputation for being rough-and-tumble, but Patrick has always been the gentle, sweet-natured one. These days, his easygoing manner is being tested by his high-octane career as a navy pilot. But for the Riordan brothers, when the going gets tough ... the tough find the love of a good woman. Except the woman who has caught Patrick's attention is Jack Sheridan's very attractive niece. Angie LeCroix comes to Virgin River to spend Christmas relaxing, away from her well-intentioned but hovering mother. Yet instead of freedom, she gets Jack Sheridan. If her uncle had his way, she'd never go out again. And certainly not with rugged, handsome Patrick Riordan. But Angie has her own idea of the kind of Christmas she wants--and the kind of man! Patrick and Angie thought they wanted to be left alone this Christmas--until they meet each other. Then they want to be left alone "together." But the Sheridan and Riordan families have different plans for Patrick and Angie--and for Christmas, Virgin River-style!
