He’s never fallen in love, but in wishing for the impossible, he finds love with his brother’s best friend.

All Kai has to show for the sacrifices he’s made to be a professional hockey player is a broken engagement, an empty house, and an uncertain future. Faced with the end of his career, he has decisions to make, but with eight years of regrets, and recurring dreams of a man he shouldn’t be craving, he heads back to the small Vermont town where he grew up.

Bailey’s barely been kissed, let alone had the space to act on his private fantasies about his brother’s best friend, Kai. When the object of his desire turns up in town, he knows it’s time to reveal the extent of his carefully guarded secrets—after all, this might be his only chance to act on them. He waits for Kai to run from the challenge, not expecting Kai to move mountains to show him what true passion could be.

The only problem? What they have comes with a time limit because Kai is returning to Albany after Christmas. Bailey knows he’s broken the rules by falling in love, but now he’s running out of time to convince Kai that love starts with a wish and might end up in forever.

The Wishing Tree is a standalone small-town Christmas MM romance with perfect snow, twinkling lights, a first kiss, a corset-wearing virgin, a confused hockey player, and all the Christmas feels.
