Every Christmas for the past eleven years, Merry Anne Martinnelli has wished for the chance to have a "do-over" and accept Josh Johnson's marriage proposal. She doesn't know Josh wishes for a second chance, too. Or that he has returned to Tassanoxie in the hopes of mending the rift.
Josh conspires with Merry Anne's brother to set up a meeting with her, unaware his house has become the target of a burglary. When the unsuspecting Merry Anne tries to deliver a pizza, two burglars answer the door, drag her in the house, and lock her in a kitchen pantry with the unconscious homeowner.
Suddenly, Merry Anne has the future she's dreamed "the house, the dog, and the 2.5 children" within her grasp. Will she be able to forgive Josh for breaking her heart, not once, but twice? Will she get her Christmas "do-over" wish?

Excerpt from A Christmas Diamond for Merry by Ginger Hanson
"I'm not too sure if this weight on my chest is Merry Anne. I don't remember her hair being this short."
Her irritation evaporated at his renewed touch and every cell in her body teetered on the edge of a major meltdown. When his right hand joined his left and he spread his fingers into her hair, shivery delight shimmered from her head to her toes.
She really wanted him to untie the gag and kiss her senseless. Locked in a dark pantry with the man she would always love, she wanted a few moments of madness before reality hit.
Like the reality of his cover-girl-gorgeous wife.
Josh's fingers slid from her hair to the knot in the gag. She let her head sink back down on his chest to give him better access. How many nights had they lain with her head cradled on his chest while they watched a movie?
No! No. She refused to let this unexpected, unwanted intimacy re-ignite her feelings.
He leaned forward and his breath stirred the hair near her temple. Was his mouth brushing her skin with a butterfly light touch?
He tugged and the gag fell off. "There."
Had he kissed her? She'd go a year without one of her mother's famous pizzas before she asked.
"Josh!" Her mouth was so dry his name came out more of a croak. She licked at her lips, trying to speak around the desert. "Is it really you? Here?" Her voice rose. "In Tassanoxie?"
