On the way to my mom’s surprise wedding, I met the most amazing man. Professor David Carstairs was intelligent, handsome, and oh-so-charming—basically every thinking woman’s dream.

A dream that quickly turned into a nightmare.

There was a reason David and I were on that ferry together, and it wasn’t serendipity. Nope; more like the world’s worst practical joke. It turned out the mysterious groom was none other than David’s father ... giving new meaning to the phrase “keeping it all in the family.”

But I’ve developed decidedly non-familial feelings about the man. Feelings that are growing stronger and stronger every day.

And now this whole idea of "one big happy family" is weighing heavy on me—literally. Because what I thought was the flu? Yeah, not so much. Looks like this brood—and my belly—are about to get even bigger.

Welcome to the family, indeed.



I met Cassandra Lewis when I was twenty-one. By the time I was twenty-five, I was hopelessly in love with her. And at the ripe old age of thirty-eight, I was finally ready to do something about it. 

And then the scandal hit.

Now I’m her boss, and the first thing HR told me was to keep my hands to myself. Seems the last CEO had a real problem with that one. 

But when we get snowed in together two days before Christmas, the lines between work and pleasure begin to blur. I must have been a good boy this year, because Santa has given me the best gift ever: Cass is standing under the mistletoe, her pouty lips daring me to kiss her. 

And who am I to deny her only holiday wish?

But what happens when the snow melts and we’re back in the real world? Will Cass and I be able to keep our Christmas love alive?
