|| As the holidays approach, the air is filled with the festive sounds of bells chiming and carolers singing. Maribeth Scott loves Christmas, but she's pretty sure that after years of waiting, Santa isn't finally going to gift her with Mr. Right. In fact, the only thing she truly wants for Christmas is a baby to love. At thirty-nine, she's determined to become a mother and she will make it happen, even if she has to do it on her own. When Mo Kincaid returns to the rustic town after almost twenty years away, he's seeking redemption from his checkered past. The last thing on his mind is romance, and he's certain he doesn't deserve it. But now there's irresistible Maribeth, showing him the true spirit of Christmas and winning his heart. For the first time in Mo's life, the future looks bright. Only one thing stands between them: Maribeth's deep desire for a child and Mo's conviction that he's too flawed to be a father. Is his world-weary heart ready to take the ultimate leap of faith?
