She hides behind her broken heart . . .
Natalie suffered through a loss no mother should ever have to, and came out the other side vowing to keep her fractured heart locked away forever. After the recent death of her grandmother, and yet another surgery, she moves back to the magical town she grew up in, where she plans to live in isolation—nursing her broken body and shattered emotions.
When a little cherub suddenly appears her first day there, insisting Natalie decorate for Christmas, she snaps at the child and comes face to face with a man she’d spent a week with years ago—standing vigil at her meddling cousin’s hospital bed—a man she’d held in her heart ever since.
As her gaze locks on those gunmetal gray eyes, recognition is instantaneous—the attraction just as electric as ever—and she’s ashamed and miserable to have berated his little girl.
When tragedy befalls her again, she find herself ensconced in his home next door, reluctantly falling under the spell of this compassionate, handsome-as-sin man, and his sweet young child.
He’d fallen under her spell years ago . . .
Zach couldn’t believe someone would snap at his little girl just because she’d suggested turning on Christmas lights. When he bounds up his new neighbor’s porch steps to retrieve his child, he comes face to face with the woman who’d burrowed into his mind and heart years ago—a woman he couldn’t forget—and was shocked at the pain and sadness still radiating from her beautiful eyes.
He knew it would be best to ignore this emotionally damaged, sensuous woman, but his heart and soul knew she was meant for him and refused to cooperate.
The tug of sympathy and compassion vie with the desire to get to know her as a woman—to find out if the attraction that had enveloped them both years ago in her cousin’s hospital room was still as strong as ever.
When tragedy strikes again and forces her into his home to be cherished and cared for, he’ll finally get his chance to prove they belong together.
The flames in her house kindle the heat flaming between them . . .
Neither Zach or Natalie are prepared for hearts tripping and emotional barriers falling when he snatches her from the flames engulfing her home and winds up tucking her into his spare bedroom. He’ll have the chance to prove to her not all men have evil intentions—that their mutual attraction had evolved to much, much more—and that a certain little cherub needed and wanted a mommy for Christmas.
Will holiday hearts awaken to passion and new love, or will Zach and Natalie let this chance at healing their broken hearts pass them by?
