Melting his frozen heart
Heiress Dr. Pollyanna Hargreaves has been wrapped in cotton wool all her life--now she's determined to strike out on her own!
But she never expected to get stuck with handsome GP Dr. Hugo Denver for Christmas. He's meant to have left on holiday with his adorable niece already--not to be tempting her at every turn!
As they're forced to work together Hugo's icy exterior soon begins to thaw.
And it's not long before Polly realizes that she's falling for him...and for little Ruby, too!
This story just got me in a really great mood. The tone of it is cheerful, the dialog is bright and lively, it is full of life, and Christ,as spirit, but not in the annoying way, it is a true feel good story, and just what I needed.
Even though the tone is full of cheer, there are well developed characters, who struggle with life as we all do in some ways, and are trying to find the balance in their lives.
I adored how Hugo took care of Ruby, the love he had for his niece was palpable. He has sacrificed a lot to take care of her, the past years hadn't been easy on either of them, but they stick together, and support each other. Hugo goes through a transformation to realize that all he really wanted in life, was already in front of him.
Polly had her parents, and the sometimes suffocating love and care she received from them. She has tried to find her independence from then all her life, with very little success. Both Hugo and Polly could have taken the easy way out, but they didn't, they found a way to live their lives while loving their family as well.
The little town, and its people, were entertaining and fun. Just a joy to read this story, there are deep feelings, Christmas miracles, passion and attraction, though it is a 'clean' story, and a seven year old who will steal your heart
