A Gentleman for Christmas cover

Holiday Romance, Christmas Romance

 

Published: November 2021

Publisher: SPK Publishing

Stir-it-up-Sunday only happens once a year, but a grandmother’s Christmas pudding doesn’t tempt Cecily’s appetite half as much as an appealing neighbor. Her deepest secret is safe until she whispers sugar plum nothings in her sleep, and awkwardly, someone overhears. A relationship doesn’t seem possible, but when it becomes apparent that their feelings are mutual, it’s not only class and social status hindering a relationship, but also one stubborn English father.

Logan Campbell, a skilled yet lowly veterinary surgeon, has a talent as an animal whisperer. Popular with the farmers and one English lady, his sentiments can’t administer common sense to the parental obstacle standing in his way. He’s willing to risk it all to secure his heart’s desire, even if it means singing in the church choir. But when a racehorse becomes seriously ill, the ensuing challenge tests his patience and skill. He’ll have to pull out all the stops to secure their future.

Does a veterinary surgeon have the practical knowledge to prevent a tragedy? Will a father accept his daughter’s heartfelt wishes? A Christmas carol and a little lady luck could make this season brighter.

Excerpt

 

We have a visitor,” said Lana. “He’s handsome and a mortal.”

Mortal?” Fiona rose to her feet. “No way. The spell that hides Ancient Oaks is too strong.”

Lana pulled Fiona to the window. A set of wings were tucked into the fairy’s back. “See.”

Standing on the sidewalk, a man looked at the bookstore. His gaze drifted to Fiona, who gawked at him from the window. Smiling, he gave a small wave. As if a thousand butterflies had been let loose, her middle filled with fluttering.

Was there something about the man?

Does he look familiar to you?” Fiona asked Lana. “No, but I can be his new best friend.”

The man strode through the bookshop’s door and

Fiona’s fingers began to tingle.

May I help you?” she asked.

And if she can’t,” Lana interjected. “I can.”

The man had the good manners to laugh, not leer. “I

visited Ancient Oaks years ago with my grandfather.” He inhaled. “He met with people in this store. I know it’s a long shot, but would anyone remember him?”

Her interest was piqued. “What’s your grandfather’s name?”

Rupert Balan.”

The frenzied fluttering in her belly ceased. If this man was the grandson of Rupert Balan, it meant one thing. The man was Carter Balan—the first boy Fiona ever kissed.

Friends have a strict no-spouse rule for significant others at their seaside retreat, but this year they break with tradition.

A numbers guy, Peter understands he’s made mistakes and he’s not certain if his mother-in-law’s surprising, but welcome, intervention will change anything. The division between him and his wife has grown as wide as the ocean and therapy sessions might only create more distance. But if there’s hope of lessening the divide and rebuilding their life together, he’ll get down on his knees and make a plea with his heart.

Will Claire and Peter get beyond their pain and follow their hearts back to the love they once shared, or will this plan ruin what’s left of their marriage.
