Christmas is about children most of all--the sparkle in their eyes, the belief in the impossible, their faith the world is a good place. THE DAD WHO SAVED CHRISTMAS is about a couple Nick and Faith falling in love but more importantly about their willingness and determination to protect a child. A mother will do anything for her child. A dad will give up the world for his. Faith and Nick find that in saving Christmas for Jakie, they find love, trust and happily-ever-after for themselves.
I wish all my readers the blessings of the holidays and the joy that knowing you are loved brings.
The best of the season to all--
Karen Rose Smith
Contemporary romance/marriage of convenience/Christmas
Faith had a crush on Nick in high school. But they ran in different crowds and he married a beautiful cheer leader and prom queen. But the gossip mill in Winding Creek worked well and Faith heard that marriage didn't last long before they both left town.
Now Nick was back at least overnight and stranded by a snow storm. He owns a toy store now but isn't in tune with the joy of the Christmas season. She offers her spare room and he accepts. When Nick learns Faith wants to adopt Jakie but that adoption is threatened, he steps up and offers a marriage of convenience.
But is it convenient? Or does the past interfere too much?
Christmas is a time of love and forgiveness. Maybe Faith and Nick can find the spirit of Christmas together.
USA TODAY Bestselling Author Karen Rose Smith is an only child who delved into books at an early age. She learned about kindred spirits from Anne of Green Gables, solved mysteries with Nancy Drew and wished she could have been the rider on The Black Stallion. Yet even though she escaped often into story worlds, she had many aunts, uncles and cousins around her on weekends. Her sense of family and relationships began there. Maybe that's why families are a strong theme in her novels, whether mysteries or romances. Her 97th novel will be released in 2017.
Karen and Paddy
Readers often ask her about her pastimes. She has herb, flowers and vegetable gardens that help her relax. In the winter, she cooks rather than gardens. And year round she spends most of her time with her husband, as well as her four rescued cats who are her constant companions. They chase rainbows from sun catchers, reminding her life isn't all about work, awards and bestseller lists. Everyone needs that rainbow to chase.
