A holiday bachelor auction brings a doctor and a country music star together…
Rose Everett isn’t sure what to do with her life now that her country music career is on hold. After all, with both of her sisters in Coral Canyon, and one about to have a baby, they’re not making albums anymore. She travels to Wyoming to help her sister with the new baby, only to discover that she may have been focusing on all the wrong things, and that she desperately wants a family of her own.
Problem is, she’s been out with several men in the past year and there’s never a spark—until she meets a handsome doctor on the plane. Then there’s fireworks, even if he brags about speaking Swahili.
Liam Murphy has been working for Doctors Without Borders, but he’s back in the US now, and looking to start a new clinic in Coral Canyon, where he spent his summers. He’s never wanted anything but to practice medicine and help people, but when he runs into the beautiful blonde he met on the plane, he starts to think there could be more to his life than his job.
When Rose wins a date with Liam in a bachelor auction, their relationship blooms and grows quickly. Problem is, Liam’s spent his whole life building his career, and he doesn’t know how to make room for Rose and the family she wants.
As Christmas approaches, and he’s still no closer to putting her above his clinic, Rose wonders if she should find someone else. After all, she’s not getting any younger, and her time to have children won’t last forever. Can Liam and Rose find a solution to their problems that doesn’t involve one of them leaving Coral Canyon with a broken heart?
Cute, clean, quick read
The hero is a workaholic trying to make up for a problem in his past though we never find out exactly what happened. While sometimes a conflict between hero and heroine can feel a bit contrived, this conflict was perfectly legit. Hard to have a relationship when one can’t put the other person first over their work. Ever. Also, a big deal when one wants lots of children and the other wants none. That is huge in a relationship. So I was proud of Rose for walking away. But never fear. There is a happily ever after ending.
