SNEAK PEEK: Under the Mistletoe by Kristine Raymond

Under the Mistletoe by Kristine Raymond

Frankie Denton liked his life exactly the way it was.  As the owner of a successful auto repair shop, the idea of adding a wife and kids to the mix never crossed his mind – until the day the sassy redhead he’d met at a friend’s wedding informs him she’s pregnant, a result of their one-night stand.  Resolved to do the right thing, nonplussed when she declines his marriage proposal, he sets out to prove he’s not only husband material, but father material as well.

After spending an exhilarating night in the arms of the sexy mechanic she met in Celebration, Roxie Malone discovers she’s expecting.  Embracing the prospect of motherhood, determined to raise the baby on her own, she’s shocked when Frankie steps up, demonstrating time and again that he’s eager to be part of their lives.  But she has first-hand experience that fathers don’t always keep the promises they make, and she’s hesitant to put her trust in a man she hardly knows.

Frankie has a lot to contend with in order to win Roxie over; a jealous friend who wants to marry her himself, a complication with her pregnancy, and a misunderstanding that threatens to drive them apart permanently.  Faced with the possibility of losing the family he never knew he wanted, he scrambles to find a way to convince her they should be together.  With Christmas just around the corner, will he get the gift he wants most?

Under the Mistletoe excerpt

Frankie stood and put another log on the fire, watching the sparks shoot up the flue.  “So, where does that leave us today?  Why are you here, Roxie?”

She moved from the couch and joined him by the fireplace.  “I want you, Frankie.  I want to be a family, you and me and Jimmy and Eve.  I want the life I never had; that you never had.  I want us.”

When asked if he remembered the exact moment his life changed, Frankie would answer it smelled of wood smoke and balsam, and tasted like Roxie’s lips.  As his arms wrapped around her everything fell into place, his doubts and concerns melting away, replaced with pure, unadulterated love.

About The Author:
Hi, there nice to meet you.  I’m Kristine Raymond, and I write books.

What kind, you ask?  Well, I penned the Hidden Springs series – eight historical western romantic suspense novels set in the late 1800s Arizona Territory.  Then there’s ‘write words’ – a short, anecdotal snapshot into my first year as an indie author.  After that, I moved on to contemporary romance; sweet with just a hint of spice.

What’s next on the agenda?  A contemporary romance novella series called Seasons of Love, a contemporary drama titled Tempted (look for this next year), and, perhaps, a mystery/thriller series.  The possibilities are endless!

Find out what I’m up to next by subscribing to my newsletter or visiting my website.  You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks for dropping by and Happy Reading!
