A Christmas Novella from the bestselling Hearthfire Romance series by Michele Paige Holmes: Five months isn't enough time to grieve the death of her husband and marry again, but when the unexpected opportunity to take her sister's place as the bride of wealthy New York businessman, William Vancer, presents itself, twenty-four year-old Charlotte Holbrook agrees. Their marriage of convenience will provide a secure future for her son, while William will be able to claim the inheritance he needs to expand his company westward. To begin their perfect and perfectly safe arrangement, William allots the last twelve days in December to become acquainted with his new family-a task more easily accomplished than he had imagined. For in Charlotte he finds a tender heart and companion, while stepping into the role of father to her son, brings William a great measure of joy as well. Before the twelve days have passed, he finds himself wishing their marriage of convenience could be something much more. For Charlotte, every day with William is one of overwhelming gratitude, as he anticipates and provides for her needs, as well as the fondest desires of her heart. More than material comforts, William offers friendship as well, and a loving concern that Charlotte has gone too long without. Guilt ridden, she struggles with her growing attraction and wonders how she can ever remain loyal to her first husband, while allowing herself to love William as he deserves.

About Michele Paige Holmes

Michele Paige Holmes spent her childhood and youth in Arizona and northern California, often curled up with a good book instead of out enjoying the sunshine. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Elementary Education and found it an excellent major in which to indulge her love of children's literature. In 2007 her first published novel, COUNTING STARS (Covenant Communications), won a Whitney Award for best romance. ALL THE STARS IN HEAVEN (Covenant 2009) and MY LUCKY STARS (Covenant 2012) complete the series. Michele currently publishes HEARTHFIRE historical romance, and young adult fairy tales in the FOREVER AFTER line. She is also a part of the POWER OF THE MATCHMAKER series, with BETWEEN HEAVEN AND EARTH (Mirror Press, August 2016). Michele attributes much of what she knows about good writing to time spent with her critique group and feels that joining a critique group is the single best thing an author can to do help improve his or her writing. She has been a member of RWA and URWA, LDStorymakers, and The League of Utah Writers. Michele enjoys both attending and teaching at conferences. When not reading or writing romance, Michele is busy with her full time job as a wife and mother. She and her husband live in Utah with their five high maintenance children and a Shitzu that resembles a teddy bear. You can find Michele on the web at and on Facebook and more
