What happens when an analytical numbers man meets a mercurial marketing Rep? Romance is a calculated risk.
Jilted by the latest of her father’s choices of “real men,” Cisney Baldwin rashly accepts an invitation to spend Thanksgiving weekend with a sympathetic colleague and his family. Nick LeCrone is a man too much her opposite to interest her and too mild-mannered to make her overbearing father’s “list.” Now, Cisney fears Nick wants to take advantage of her vulnerable state over the holiday. Boy, is she wrong.
Nick wants little to do with Cisney. She drives him crazy with all her sticky notes and quirks. He extended an invitation because he felt sorry for her. Now he’s stuck, and to make matters worse, his family thinks she’s his perfect match. He’ll do what he can to keep his distance, but there’s just one problem—he’s starting to believe Cisney’s magnetism is stronger than he can resist.
A New Christmas Tradition
This Christmas will be the fourth year of a tradition my oldest son started after my husband and I moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Two weeks before Christmas, my son drove five hours with his two little boys to our house. We live on a hill that looks down on a valley, out at the mountains, and over lots of Christmas trees. At the bottom of our hill is a field of Christmas trees. They are over twenty feet tall now. So on my son and grandsons’ visits, we cut one down and decorated the monsters between drinking hot chocolate and painting Christmas cookies. The boys’ mom and other family members came last year. I overheard my two 5-year-old grandson cousins talking about the real meaning of Christmas. Heart squelch. This year everyone in my two sons’ families will be here for the pre-Christmas fun. I love it!
