Publisher’s Description:

A relaxing hammock read for those dreaming of warm weather, cold drinks, and sunny gardens!

For ten years, Georgiana has been a perfect wife, perfect mother, and a perfect duchess–but now she’s bored. She has never seen a film, flown in an aeroplane, or experienced the London Underground. All that is about to change…

For ten years, the Duke of Hereford has prided himself on his stable, predictable, perfect life. But all that is about to change when Hereford and Georgiana trade grey, stifling London for a sun-drenched villa on the banks of Lake Maggiore.

Can old love find a new spark on holiday?

My Thoughts:

This is a beautifully written story of rediscovery of love by a married couple whose life and love have become staid and predictable.

This all changes when they take a holiday trip with a surprising outcome.

This book didn’t have the excitement of the previous title I had read by this author but was enjoyable with very sexy scenes.

I gave this book 4 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.75 of 5.0 flames.

The intimacy is very heated in the scenes from the couple’s trip.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

When good girl Maya Brand, eldest of five and the pillar of the family, has a moment of weakness and a one night stand with a drifter, she finds herself pregnant with a naked ring finger. Most Big Falls, Oklahomans think it must be a case of immaculate conception. But the drifter returns and trouble follows. So do an early labor, a freak storm, and a Christmas you will never forget.

Publisher’s Description:

Darryl is on a quest for peace. His chance at fatherhood was taken from him long ago, and an IED in Iraq ensured he’d never get another. In Big Falls, the McIntyre brothers hire him to keep an eye on their beautiful cousin Sophie in case her criminal ex shows up. He doesn’t expect to fall head over heels.

Sophie McIntyre’s life was blown apart by a drug dealing ex who cost her her job and nearly her medical license. She comes to Big Falls because she has nowhere else to go. And the minute she gets there, things start to get better.

Is it because of that letter to Santa her Aunt Vidalia convinced her to write? 

Within days she meets a beautiful man with a deeply wounded soul. And oddly, she finds herself giving him the same advice the town Santa gave to her—try believing again, and if it’s too much to believe, then just try hoping.

Love, magic, and miracles ensue.

Because this is Big Falls, Oklahoma. Miracles are an everyday occurrence around here. Especially at Christmastime.


An expanded author’s cut edition of the story previously published in Buckles, Boots and Mistletoe.
