Wishing everyone the best of the season. May you have joy, peace, and companionship. One of the things I love most about the season is the feeling that anything can happen — that your most fervent desire can come true. That is why I was thrilled when The Wild Rose Press asked me to contribute to its Twelve Brides anthology. Christmas, miracles, and brides. Is there anything better? If you’re feeling overwhelmed or just looking to get into the holiday spirit, may I suggest you take a break and relax with a Christmas miracle.
Seven years ago Monica Stevens left her home town with no intention of returning. Her inability to conceive a child not only devastated her fifteen-year marriage, it made her doubt her appeal as a woman. When her mother has to undergo surgery, she reluctantly agrees to come back and run the Mother Goose Daycare.
Luke Donovan is struggling to balance his career with his duties as a single father to six adopted children. The death of his wife has thrown the adoption of their two youngest sons into limbo. He is further stymied by a dogmatic social worker who questions whether a single parent can adequately care for so many children.
Initially brought together by the children, Monica and Luke quickly surrender to their growing passion. But when she learns about the threatened adoption, Monica wonders if Luke’s interest in her is only as a mother to his children. Is history about to repeat itself, or will a Christmas miracle finally give Monica the family she’s always dreamed of having?
