Review: Her Secret Christmas Hero by Mallory Kane

Book Blurb:

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Allie McHale is spending this brutal Christmas Eve snowstorm in a barn in Marietta, Montana when suddenly she hears a horrible crash on the freeway near her ranch. She discovers a handsome lone survivor, a prisoner in handcuffs, and despite her apprehension about harboring a criminal, she rescues him anyway.

Jacob Reeves, on his way to Seattle to testify against his organized crime family, is miraculously saved by the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on, who has every reason not to trust him, but getting through a freezing Christmas Eve forces them to work together to survive.

During the long night, their chemistry is off the charts and Jake realizes that Allie could be the love of his life. But as soon as the storm is over, he’ll be gone. Is Jake destined to break both of their hearts, or will a Christmas tragedy end in a miracle?

My Review:

Her Secret Christmas Hero by Mallory Kane packs a lot of emotion into a novella in a believable way.  Despite a very short period of time spent together, Jake and Allie come together in a magical way that made me believe in love at first sight.

The characters and their stories are unique, especially Jake's, and I felt like I got to know them really well in a short time.  I really felt for both of these characters and what they are going through in this point of their lives.  Allie is still struggling with the sudden death of her father and running the ranch, Jake comes from a crime family and is set to testify for the state against his family.  Through a twist of fate they come together at this time in their lives, just when they are feeling the most alone.  For me they just felt so good together.  But is it a Christmas miracle they found each other or will they lose each other just as quickly? 

I liked all the details that Mallory Kane manages to write into Her Secret Christmas hero, from the snow storm to the snow globes, to Allie's mare and her "baby horse", to the barn setting.  This really helped bring the novella to life.

The pace of the story is perfect for this magical Christmas novella!  Events happen over a very short period, and whether or not this happens in real life, it worked very well in this book for Allie and Jake.

A novella that will make you feel happy and hopeful, I'd recommend Her Secret Christmas Hero to any romance reader!

4/5 stars
