I love the emotions Jane Porter's books pull out of her readers. Gah! The feels... I can't even. I haven't cried while reading in a hot minute, but this book totally made me cry! In the best possible way of course :) Thanks for the book hangover, Jane!
The Sheenans are my favorite fellas and I ADORED Cormac. He seems like such a hardass but sweet little Daisy has softened him. He's always kept women at bay in terms of serious relationships but he's never forgotten Whitney.
Whitney has tried to move on with her life even though she's a major player at Sheenan Media. They have been able to work together, since they haven't had to see each other. However, once circumstances force them together, their past isn't entirely forgotten.
Their story is delicious, sweet, endearing, and oh-so-good! I couldn't read it fast enough. I loved watching the shift in Cormac and seeing he and Whitney fall in love all over again. The little things he would do or say BE STILL MY BEATING HEART. And this book is about the best time of year, Christmas! There's something magical about the town of Marietta and the spirit of Christmas. A fun time of year and this book allows for the kid in you to come out and play. I can't say enough good things about this story; go 1-click your copy!

And I highly recommend this entire series! Book 1 can be found here
Media Mogul, Cormac Sheenan, had no desire to become a family man, but when his two year old goddaughter, Daisy, is orphaned, he adopts her, moving her from Montana to his home in Southern California, and becomes a devoted single father, juggling parenting duties with running his successful publishing, TV, and radio enterprise.
But two years later a frightening incident at Daisy’s school, shakes Cormac, and he decides to move Daisy–and his business–back to Montana where life is simpler and he has family nearby.
Now four, precocious Daisy strikes up an unlikely friendship with Marietta’s seasonal Santa Claus, and believes he’s the real thing, even though Cormac points out to her that this jolly old Kris Kringle is renting a room at Bramble House, not living at the North Pole. Daisy’s not worried but Cormac is as Rent-a-Santa has promised his innocent daughter she’ll have a mommy for Christmas.
Cormac is livid with Kris. He’s not at all ready to settle down, and he’s definitely not getting back together with his old flame Whitney Alder, so Santa can stop playing match maker as it’d take a miracle to make him fall in love, never mind marriage material.
But that’s exactly the kind of miracle our angelic Santa Claus has planned…
