"You have a question you want to ask me,” Sam whispered.
“Oh, I do? And what would that be?”
“You’re wondering why I haven’t tried to kiss you.”
Katherine’s face was on fire as she stepped away. There’s no way he could have possibly known her thoughts.
“And you think it might be because I’m not attracted to you.” He entwined his fingers with hers and then raised their clasped hands to draw her back to him. “But you’re wrong.”
“Why haven’t you tried to kiss me then? Every other man I’ve ever dated would have at least tried by now.”
“I’m not every other man.”
He was right about that.
Mary Sherman’s Christmas is nothing like she’s planned. Her fiancé has called off the engagement just days before Christmas, and her parents have gone on an anniversary cruise around the world.
Suddenly alone for the holidays, Mary returns to the comfort of her childhood home to spend Christmas in her parents’ empty house.
There’s only one problem. The house is not empty. Unbeknownst to Mary, her parents have taken in a boarder, a handsome carpenter named Jake Wolesky.
Mary's Christmas surprise may make this the best holiday ever.
The warmth of his whisper kissed her curls.
“Faith Holmes, I love you, and one day, when you’re ready, I’ll ask you to marry me. I vow to you that whatever the future brings, I will never, ever forsake you. You’ll never need to doubt me.”
If only she could trust him, could believe his words were true. But her life proved otherwise. . .
Men were liars.
