Christmas is a time for family and friends. A time to be with those we love and cherish, the ones who make our heart beat. But when the love of your life is half way around the world, how do you let the spirit of the holidays lift you up and bring you cheer?

Kelsey and Riley spent more time apart than together early on in their relationship, but now he's away for a different reason. Riley’s absence while deployed is taking a toll on Kelsey. She finds herself crying more often than not and distancing herself from the people who are there for her the most.

Riley employs the help of some friends to make Kelsey's Christmas without him a special one. A series of notes and gifts remind her of the good times they have shared so far and the ones to come.

Is Kelsey strong enough to handle one of the happiest holidays separated from the man who completes her in every way?

Will Kelsey scavenge for the strength she needs to embrace the role of a military girlfriend or will she crack under the pressure from the distance?

Only she knows how much she can take….


I just want to thank Tiffany Aleman for the adorable update that is in Scavenge between Kelsey, and Riley. When I read Smoldering several months ago, I was so unhappy that it was a standalone! A short Christmas novella is exactly what was needed for a Kelsey, and Riley fix.

The holidays are hard for anyone that has a loved one in the armed forces. Whether it be across the world, or on the USA soil, it is a difficult time for families. Luckily, Kelsey has plenty of family, and friends that are sure to keep her preoccupied with plans that Riley has conjured up for her while he is deployed to Afghanistan. There is no doubt in his mind that this will be a Christmas that Kelsey won't forget!

Between short notes that Jen writes for Kelsey, and the surprises that litter their house, Kelsey has plenty that will keep her busy during his long deployment. She has some awesome friends who are constantly checking on her, and her hope to be soon in-laws that insist on spending Christmas with her. It is one Christmas that Kelsey won't forget, and she is thrilled to have it spent with her family, and friends.

Even with the love her life half a world a way, she knows that in her heart she absolutely adores, and loves Riley for who he is, and what he stands for.

Be sure to check out these books! Tiffany has left a small surprise for her readers at the end!!

Hey everyone! I'm the author of the International Bestseller, Smoldering. I'm a mom of 2 great kids and I'm married to my best friend. I live in the deep south and wouldn't have it any other way. Originally, I hail from Austin, Texas. 

I've been writing ever since I was kid but I decided to put my passion to use in May of 2013. Smoldering is my solo debut. It's a book that took up residence in my mind and wouldn't leave me alone until I finally decided to write it.

When I'm not writing I can be found on the beach with my family and friends or out in the woods getting dirty in some Georgia clay on a four-wheeler.
