A Warm DecembereBook - 2012
"For holiday cheer, nothing beats a romantic comedy with an orphan, cute animals and a hunky Santa Claus. Wealthy executive Dave Anders may not be veterinarian Merrie McGregor's type, but she'll agree to to a fake engagement if that's what it takes to give her young niece a home. The problem is, Dave may be taking his role as her fiance too much to heart. When Dave Anders goes to the vet to pick up his dog, he ends up chasing a monkey and kissing the vet herself. Dr. Merrie McGregor's dazzled by Dave's powerful sensuality but never expects to see him again-until he shows up as Santa Claus on her doorstep on Christmas Eve with gifts for Merrie's niece Steffie...and a burning passion for Merrie. Then her snobbish sister plans to stick her adopted daughter in boarding school. Merrie will go to any lengths to get Steffie entrusted to her, even claiming an engagement with Dave. The problem is that Dave seems to be taking the whole engagement business a little too seriously, while Merrie's afraid their values are worlds apart. Can a warm December really last the whole year round? Three people's happiness hangs in the balance.Jacqueline Diamond, author of more than 90 published novels, is known for her versatility, from light romances and Regencies to mysteries and romantic suspense.

They always contain strong families and the complication of having an innocent child in the mix. Because they're shorter in length, it's easy to read them in one sitting and you always get emotionally wrapped up in the characters' lives."--Helen Slifer, Writers UnlimitedCover photo by Ivan Prole, www.proledesign.com."-- Provided by publisher.
