Rose Colored Christmas
Young widow Emilee Arnold enjoys her freelance web design work, teaching a youth Sunday school class and everything about Christmas. She’s content, or believes so, until she rescues a pilot from a burning plane and is snowed in with her very own scrooge for the holiday.
Gabe King specializes in flying corporate groups to various locations. He’s claims to be an easy-going guy until his lifestyle and his heart is challenged by Emilee.
Emilee can’t stop her attraction to Gabe but his dislike for Christmas is the one thing she can’t get past.
Can Emilee help to make her very own Christmas a miracle?
