I never expected to have to go back home.But my mother needed me, and being the good daughter I am, I went.Days in the hospital only added to the feeling that this holiday season was going to be the worst I’ve suffered, but then he showed up.A cardiac technician with a smile that makes the angels sing.And of course, the alpha male rubs me the wrong way.But I can’t help but want to warm myself by … wrong way.
But I can’t help but want to warm myself by the fire swirling in between us.
Things move along quickly and I’m choking on the idea of leaving my big-city New York dream life to be a part of his small-town world.
There’s no way I can allow that to happen though.
I was just home for the holidays. And now it’s time to go.
No matter whose heart it breaks in the process.
