These two never put themselves first.
Carol DeMerritt has been volunteering since she was a kid in Christmas Town. Now, as a teacher in South Philly, she’s trying to make a difference. When some of her “Mathletes” are caught stealing before Christmas, Carol has a crisis of confidence. And when she comes back to Christmas Town for the holidays, the last thing she wants to do is volunteer next to Mike Hopkins. He was one of the most popular guys in high school. She’d doubt he even knew she was alive if not for one very special New Year’s Eve.
Mike Hopkins is stretched thin all the time, but especially at Christmas when his wheelchair-bound father volunteers them for everything. The last thing he needs is to break his wrist while building the stage for Christmas Town’s Christmas pageant. Or maybe the last thing he needs is Carol DeMerritt helping him. She reminds Mike of his painful past, and maybe something not quite as painful — an impulsive kiss they’ve never discussed.

Prior to writing romance, award-winning, USA Today bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat---otherwise known as the potty. After grabbing her pen (and a parachute) she made the jump to full-time writer. Between writing sweet romance for Harlequin and indie-pubbed sweet romantic comedy, Melinda finds time to relax with her husband over home remodeling projects. She recently came to grips with the fact that she's an empty nester and a grandma, concepts easier to grasp than jet-setting on a potty.
