Can the joy of Christmas heal the pain of the past?

Laura Hemmingway cut herself off from men and her family when the man she loved married her sister. She moved across the country and was doing just fine until she received a devastating call to return to New York. She had to face the death of her sister, her sister’s little girl, Maria, and Maria’s father, Stefan—the man she had once loved. She figured she would pay her respects and leave as soon as possible. She never anticipated on the beautiful little girl stealing her heart. And she never expected that seeing Stefan again after twelve years would stir up old feelings.

Stefan’s life was complete. He had a successful career as an attorney, a beautiful wife, and an adorable six-year-old daughter. Although him and his wife had been married in name only for the past several years, he cared for her deeply. Then her unexpected death brought him face-to-face with his former lover, and the guilt he’d carried for years.

Stefan is still in love with Laura and wants to give her everything she deserves. He and Maria are racing against time to convince Laura to stay with them in New York.

Can a little girl’s love, and the true magic of Christmas, help Stefan convince Laura to stay and give their relationship another chance?

Chatting about Christmas with the Author.

Constance started writing contemporary romance and contemporary romance suspense fifteen years ago. She was born and raised in Michigan. After 38 years working for the State of Michigan, she retired. She and her husband moved to Montana and lived in the mountainside of a small town. After living there for three years, they moved to Alabama, with her three feline furballs who own her and her husband. Her hobbies include basket weaving, reading romance books, and jewelry making as well as writing.

Constance, do you have any special plan for this Christmas? Why is it special?

IMG_1915For years we never decorated a tree or fix up the home for Christmas because we lived far away from our family and friends. We moved from Montana to Alabama earlier this year, and we have made some new friends. Everyone in Alabama is so friendly, and it’s so easy to make friends. This year, we decided we would put up a Christmas tree, and decorate the house. We will be having some new friends over for small intimate dinner parties. I haven’t gotten the tree up yet, but did manage to decorate my fireplace. So the picture is my fireplace with decorations.
