Dr. Jules Montgomery needed a hero for just one night. Dane Andrews, Boss to his men, had only one rule—never mess with any woman in his home town. All it took was a stranger’s arms wrapped around his neck, and her soft, warm lips whispering in his ear, "Help a girl out. Your name's Gary, and you're my boyfriend," for Boss to break his rules.
Boss quickly stepped into the role of hero and fantasy boyfriend, finding it impossible to say no to the mesmerizing beautiful redhead. He played Gary to her Red. For one night only, they belonged to each other, fulfilling each other’s fantasies.
Five years later, fate and a redheaded four-almost five-year-old named Becca reunite them once again. Their lives have taken different paths, although neither has forgotten the other. Jules returns to her home town to reconcile with her aunt, only to discover that her aunt is the housekeeper to Boss, a man with an occupation that goes against everything Jules holds dear. Boss is considered a hero by those who know him, although he now needs a service dog by the name of Lucky to keep him safe. Together, man and dog become the heroes that Jules needs once again to keep her and her family safe for more than one night.
Deborah Armstrong believes in love, romance, and happily ever after. Although she is still in search of that perfect cup of coffee, she finds time to enjoy her favourite past times: reading, music, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.
Have you noticed all the posts of Christmas trees on social media? I love to look at how people decorate their trees, especially when they mention a family tradition that goes along with the tree. There's something about the lights and decorations, especially the tree topper, that gives me that warm feeling inside. Is it a touch of nostalgia for Christmases past? Childhood memories? Or new memories to be made? For me, it's for the here and now with my family, especially my grandchildren who believe in the magic of Santa. Merry Christmas.
Dane entered the hotel lobby and was immediately impressed by the Christmas decorations and their festive elegance. He gazed up at the eighteen-foot high Christmas tree decorated in shiny gold and silver hues. It was magnificent, although Dane thought it a bit much for his tastes. Old fashioned country was more his style with popcorn strands draped on the branches, and handmade family decorations passed down from generation to generation hung on the branches. He was sentimental that way with memories of family traditions shared with his grandparents. It seemed like a lifetime ago.
