A LAWMAN FOR CHRISTMAS
The Gift of Family
Committed to her spinsterhood, Isabel Flores isn't about to trust a man with her hard-won independence or her heart -- especially not lawman Ben MacGregor. But when a little boy is abandoned on her property, the so-called "Debonair Deputy" of their small Tennessee toen helps her care for the child. And Isabel begins to hope he might be more than just a handsome flirt.
Ben is well aware of Isabel's aversion to love and has his own secret reasons for avoiding relationships. But as he and Isabel do their best to make the holiday special for their young ward, Ben wonders if he could be a family man after all. Will their Christmas be the first of many for Isabel and Ben's little instant family?
Take two people who have resigned themselves to living their lives one way but are too stubborn to see something new and wondrous opening up before them and you have the makings for an emotional love story. Cue this reader's gnashing of teeth as she embarks on a reading frenzy.
Honestly, I wanted to knock heads together in the hopes of rattling some brain cells to life. Ben is stuck in the past, firmly believing he has nothing to offer a wife. (Puleeeeze! My curled toes beg to differ.) He's sweet and kind and gentlemanly and determined to do the right thing...even when we all know it's the wrong thing! LOL And Isabel has allowed her father's scandalous past to define everything about her present which definitely closes off a hopeful future.
All that changes one fateful night when these two lives are entwined in an astonishing way. Danger and mystery and an abandoned child continuously pull them together during the most hopeful season of all. An old-fashioned Christmas romance that embraces the true meaning of the season.
